About Face Lace

Peel off, stick on and show off!
Turn every face into a masterpiece with our exquisitely intricate designs that couldn’t be easier to use.
The concept of Face Lace emerged from a professional need and artistic challenge to create elaborate makeup designs which could be applied in a few seconds, look precise, symmetrical and stay perfect until they came off.

After launching in 2012, Face Lace became an immediate favourite among makeup artists and members of the general public wanting dramatic, but fool-proof, makeup results quickly. It has been used for quick changes on some of the most popular TV show such as Strictly Come Dancing, X Factor, and The Voice. Creative, show-stopping entertainers such as Lady Gaga, Paloma Faith, and Nicole Scherzinger have worn Face Lace.

Since 2012 Face Lace has often made waves on social media and has also been worn on the catwalks during London Fashion Week. Time Out magazine listed wearing Face Lace as one of the essential elements for Halloween-lovers.

About Phyllis Cohen

Phyllis Cohen started her career as a Fashion Illustrator. Whilst attending the prestigious Art Centre College in California, her dramatic style caught the attention of fashion photography students who encouraged her to do makeup for their photo shoots.  Upon completion of her illustration course, she graduated with two portfolios: one for makeup and one for illustration.

When Phyllis arrived in London (1982) the New Romantics embraced her colourful, illustrative makeup style. The fashion world followed suit, and for most of the 80s the fashion-pack turned to Phyllis when anything cutting-edge or artistic was needed. Her fans included Annie Lennox, David Bowie, Tina Turner, and Janet Jackson.

In the 90s Phyllis returned to art college to follow a more serious approach to art and the beauty of the human face. She has written for many publications on the changing nature of beauty and different perspectives on how we now perceive a more inclusive concept of beauty than before. Phyllis is still greatly in demand as a fashion makeup artist and has recently worked with Pharrell Williams and Kylie Minogue.

Phyllis puts her vast experience into every design she creates for her Face Lace range. Each piece starts out as a unique artwork meticulously researched from different eras and cultures of decorative arts. Phyllis loves what she does and has a passionate team of makeup artists and artists who work closely with her.
