Red Lips Voted The Most Iconic Trend Ever

Red lips are hot. Red lips are classic. Red lips were also recently voted the most iconic beauty trend ever. 

Some red lipsticks have blue undertones which can make your teeth look whiter, while orange undertoned red lipsticks look great on yellow undertoned skin types. Then you've got the perfect neutral red lipstick, which is not really either and imitates natural human colors that we all have. To describe the perfect red that looks flattering on everyone is one that resembles human blood. Vampires unite...

Any who, when shopping for your perfect red lipstick, shop no further than Ellis Faas Cosmetics. Ellis has a philosophy that regardless of your gender or race, we all have the same human colors which exist. Her red lipsticks are highly coveted, celebrity-worn, cult obsessions which support her makeup theories. From the very second you put these colors on, you come to realize that this makeup artist knows what's up in the flattering department. 

Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time". And indeed, she has worked with the world's most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models. Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L'Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm. After the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS.

The one and only Cate Blanchett explained the Ellis color theory well:

"In order to be striking, a lipstick must take your skin tone into account. The line of Ellis Faas is based on the colours that the body produces naturally. The important thing is finding the balance between the tone of your skin and the shades of makeup you choose." (InStyle, April 2010)

Ellis reds retail at a comfortable $35 and she makes a lip texture for your every mood. Once you try one on, you'll become a huge fan as well. We promise!
