Ellis Faas Goes For Gold
Getting fully into the Summer spirit means welcoming the barrage of bronzers that have recently hit shelves with an open-armed embrace. They come available in powder and cream formulas, but we prefer to take ours as a liquid; if it’s in click-pen applicator form, all the better. Amsterdam’s best beauty import, Ellis Faas, must be on the same page; she’s just released a Bronze Bombshell trio. Packaged in Faas’ classic silver-bullet casing (the better to fit into the makeup bag holster the face painter totes around with her), the three-piece set includes Eye Light in E303 Bronze—a crushed gold that gives a molten finish to lids; blush in S303, a dark, ruddy copper that’s an easy and blendable way to carve out cheeks; and Glazed Lips in L309, a clear gloss that leaves behind an ultra-wet shine. You could wear a red lip if you really wanted to take things to the next level, but there’s something nice about a nude mouth to showcase a properly gilded complexion.
