Local 706 member Carol Strong died Oct. 22, 2013. According to the
Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild, Local 706, she began her
career in Oregon. After moving to California, she became a union member
while working on the 1999 film Guinevere.
Strong’s list of credits include Blue Streak, Drowning Mona, The Cooler, The Rules of Attraction, Rush Hour 3, Chuck and
many more. She worked with actors William H. Macy, Stephen Rea, Faye
Dunaway, Gina Gershon, Jackie Chan and more. Strong was also the
personal make-up artist for TV host Robert Osborne on the show Private Screenings.
According to the union she is survived by two brothers. News of a memorial service was pending at press time.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
