Ellis Faas’ Highlighting Compact is designed to attract light to certain areas of your face; to help illuminate it or to give it a sun-kissed look. These highlighting powders are full of the finest reflective pearly particles.
You can use lighter shades for strobing and darker as bronzers.
Strobing is basically a fun term for highlighting - attracting light to certain areas of your face to enhance your natural features.
Key factors to get strobing right:
2) find a highlighter that matches your skin tone perfectly. Ellis Faas has 3 different shades from subtle porcelain glow to terracotta sparkle;
3) apply the highlighter with the sponge that comes with the product on top of cheekbones, along your temples, down the bridge of your nose, below your brow bones, in the corners of your eyes, and above your cupid's bow.
Remember: less is more. Restrict the glow to these areas only and voila!
Bronzing is another way to highlight your natural features but it is more about giving your face a sun kissed look, unlike strobing (where you make certain areas of your face lighter). Bronzing is about imitating a very slight tan.
Key factors for getting bronzing right:
Use a bronzer brush along the hairline on the forehead, on the apples of the cheeks, nose, and chin—where the sun naturally hits the face.
Available in three flattering hues, this water-based, refreshing emulsion blends easily with any moisturiser or foundation and can be layered both under and on top of your make-up for a variety of effects.
The formula is enriched with plant-derived, non-greasy emollient squalane for supple, soft, and healthy looking skin; and also has a precious hydrating complex based on hyaluronic acid; vitamin E which has anti-oxidant, anti-aging properties and melissa grass extract for soothing and de-puffing effect, so you can wear the Highlighting Liquid as your make-up base for a healthy glow.
Heavenly lightweight and highly buildable – Natural Defining & Contouring Liquid takes contouring to a whole new level of ease.
The delicate fluid blends easily and seamlessly, allowing you to create a wide variety of results from natural definition to dramatic stage make-up.
The texture has been blended for effortless gliding and sets into a very natural, light, non-sticky finish.
Coverage is sheer. Once dry it is very long-lasting.
Apply on top of your foundation or underneath for a particularly subtle effect and to accentuate your cheekbones creating a 3D-effect depth.
No fragrance, no alcohol.
Your fingertips are the best tools to apply the product.
Unlike powder products, the fluid texture of Natural Defining & Contouring Liquid is very easy to blend. Always start with a smaller amount as the shadow can be easily built up.
Prep your skin with a primer (we suggest using Skin Perfector, particularly if you don’t need additional coverage). If needed, apply foundation and thenthe Natural Defining & Contouring Liquid to areas of your face, neck and décolletage that you wish to visually deepen by enhancing the amount of shadow:
- along the hairline to re-shape your forehead;
- right at the temples to make the area appear more narrow;
- under the cheekbones to emphasize or add to their definition;
- to the sides of your nose to visually alter its width or length, although this is not likely to look entirely natural in real life and is a more an option for photography, in particular black and white; for Instagram photos and for stage make-up;
- to re-model your jawline and neck;
- to emphasize your collarbones;
Contouring is about very simple rules:
by deepening the shadow underneath a feature, we can let the feature appear larger.
By adding shadow to a wide, flat area, we can let the area appear narrower.
Strategically adding an illusion of a shadow makes for more defined, interesting looks.
Of course contouring is ideal with dramatic or stage make-up, because heavy coverage can make any face look unnaturally flat and wide.

With an exceptional balance of high-quality ingredients, Skin Veil glides on in a thin layer, blending into the skin. A foundation that illuminates the skin without feeling or appearing like a mask.
To achieve a porcelain, even skintone. Skin Veil minerals diffuse light across the skin’s surface, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ELLIS FAAS foundation incorporates moisturising ingredients which nourish and protect the skin.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS – Vitamin E and a special selection of natural minerals.
With the incredibly smooth feeling of vaporous silk, a fine dusting of this invisible loose powder softens unwanted flaws and rewards the complexion with an even skin tone and velvety matt finish. Evermat reduces the production of oily sebum to keep shine in check, with the aid of silica’s absorbing action. Tetrapeptide Matrixyl 3000 brings an anti-wrinkle and smoothing effect while Actiwhite works to lighten and brighten. Due to its super transparency and ability to mattify the skin without drying, all skin tones can benefit from this universal shade that can be used to fix make-up or worn alone to brilliant effect.
Flattering, light-reflective primer.
This light-reflective, sheer and very subtly tinted primer is ideal to instantly freshen up your complexion.
Forget meticulous highlighting: the moment you apply Skin Perfector, its translucent opalescence creates a sculpting 3D effect, provides a flattering soft focus finish to diminish the appearance of fine lines, and brightens the skin tone.
The key ingredient to obtain this illuminating effect without any opaqueness or added pigment is Diamond Core Powder. These advanced particles transform invisible UV light into blue and green light – that hue and radiance of young healthy skin – thus evening out skin that’s been exposed to sunlight and has developed discolouration, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and imperfections in general. At once, the signs of aging are less visible, and your skin looks even-toned, radiant and healthy. Corn-derived natural polymers control excess oil and lend to the overall light, velvety feel of the texture. The antioxidant vitamin E and Lycoskin Defence (an innovative tomato stem cell derived active compound) contribute to cell protection and repair and shield skin from the effects of increasing environmental pollution.
Weightless yet creamy, the SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector emulsion texture feels ultra-light on your skin. Wear it on its own, apply to prepare your skin for your foundation or blend it into any face cream.
Effortless application – use your fingertips, a make-up sponge or a foundation brush.
Suitable for all skin tones.
Ingenious and versatile, Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Concentrated Foundation Pigment (aka skin soul drops) creates a demi-matte veil of easily buildable coverage. Mixing it with any cream or face product you are using will turn it into foundation. The Foundation Pigment will match a multitude of different complexions and you can measure exactly how much coverage you want by adding the product drop by drop. There is no longer a need to buy lighter and heavier textured foundations for different seasons - just add the pigment to your current skin care product.
Foundation Pigment has a neutral formula ideal for all skin types (including oily, combination, normal and even dry skin) and it blends easily with any moisturiser, serum, dry oil or primer to build your bespoke level of coverage.
What’s inside: A mix of jojoba, mimosa and sunflower waxes which closely mimic the texture naturally found in the sebum of the skin. The formula is infused with rich, lecithin-covered, long-lasting pigments and the uniquely processed mica creates a pore-refining, even and slightly “plumped”, refreshed finish.
How to: before using the Foundation Pigment, make sure you shake the bottle thoroughly for a few seconds - this will evenly disperse the concentrate for optimal results. Then put the usual amount of your favourite moisturiser, serum or primer onto the back of your hand. Measure in the Foundation Pigment drop by drop and blend together using your fingertips or a foundation brush to create your preferred level of coverage.
The coverage reduces the appearance of blemishes and pores to a level defined solely by you: we recommend 1 drop for a sheer, natural coverage of a tinted moisturiser and up to 5 drops for opaque concealer-level coverage.
The 3 available shades match up to three different natural complexion tones:
‘Miriam’ – fair to light skin;
‘Lalla’ – medium skin;
‘Yeshe’ – tan skin.
Free from cyclomethicone, fragrance and preservatives.
Glide concealer brings you the magic sensation of "bare skin but better".
The new, moisturising formula is based on a smoothing and skin-plumping blend of vegetable waxes, enriched with the blend of natural avocado, jojoba, argan and rosehip oils that we selected for their nourishing, anti-oxidant and rejuvenating properties.
The liquid texture blends exceptionally well to achieve perfectly even, light to medium coverage. The finish is never too heavy or cakey.
Wear it to cover up blemishes, shadows, under-eye circles or redness particularly evenly and with outstanding comfort. Or let it glide onto your eyelids as your perfecting and skin-protecting eye shadow base.
Like all Rouge Bunny Rouge foundation products, the glide concealer has unprecedented skin adherence, excellent wear, and the most pleasant skin feel.
Free from mineral oil and silicones.

Titian, Rubens, Vermeer and Manet, each shade of Rouge Bunny Rouge's cream blush sticks are named after a great master painter which reflects the concept of colour which prevailed at the time. The shades range from the warm intense candlelight hues of Titian to the sheer pastels of Monet.
The Cream Blushes can help to create natural looking effects from a flushed ‘sitting-by-a-glowing-fire’ to a rosy ‘just-had-a-walk-in-the-fields’.
The blushes contain a blend of natural oils and spherical powders for a super-soft emollient cream-to-powder finish which comes in an easy to use portable wand. Blend with fingers and layer on for intensity to achieve your preferred look. The cream blushes can also be used on lips for a sheer tint of colour.
