She's worked with the best in the business, including Mario Testino and Chanel and now makeup artist and founder of her eponymous beauty brand Ellis Faas shares her favourite products with Heart.
I once stayed in a hotel and they had this cleanser in the bathroom. I used it then and there and became addicted and have used it ever since. £40
I love MoroccanOil hair treatment because it leaves my hair so incredibly soft and manageable. From £12.85
I never leave the house without having applied foundation, and ours, ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil foundation, is truly magical. You don't need a lot, and its formula seems to become one with the skin, so you don't get the dreaded mask effect. £35
ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil Foundation comes in a handy 'bullet' shape tube that can easily be carried around and refilled with more ELLIS FAAS foundation cartridges
I love these paper false lashes by Paperself - at least until we make lashes of our own at Ellis Faas! They come in great designs such as Peacock, Deer and Butterfly, Scorpion and even Jubilee ones! From £10
ELLIS Red is my signature shade of lipstick, and I use it in different ways: mostly I apply a little and dab it with a finger, so it becomes a wash of colour. I also apply it as a full coverage lipstick or I dab a little on the apple of my cheek as you would with a blush. £22
Coconut Oil is a multi-purpose product: it controls the frizziness of my hair, it's a nice skin moisturiser, you can use it as a bath oil, and you can cook with it or eat it on bread! Biona Coconut Oil, £7.99
ELLIS Clips is my most recent "portable solution". For women-on-the-go, I have created a concept that makes it easy to carry around our makeup. First I launched the Holder, which holds 8 of our products and also has a built-in mirror, but for smaller or bigger amounts of products, I came up with the Clips: you can simply click together as many as you like and fit in our makeup pens. £2 each
ELLIS FAAS Creamy Eyes, my favourite eye-texture, because it's easy to apply and won't budge until you take it off. We just launched seven extra, colourful shades. £23
The ELLIS FAAS Creamy Eyes range and ELLIS Mascara and Eyeliner
Dermatologica Antioxidant Hydramist - a greatly refreshing facial spray that is really good for hydrating and protecting your skin. £26.40
Water! Of course I don't schlepp it around on my travels, but it is absolutely vital for me to drink a lot especially on planes and in other air-conditioned places. And you can get it anywhere!
