The make-up artist to celebrities has died; at age 49. It's being reported that she passed away in her sleep at her home in New York.
According to reports:
Brooklyn-based makeup artist Roxanna Floyd, who made sure celebrities put their best face forward, has died. She was 49.
Her family gave no cause of death. She died in her sleep at her home in Clinton Hill.
Over a three-decade career, Floyd's artistry could be seen in motion pictures, on book jackets and on more than 200 magazine covers. She "worked on every continent, with the exception of Antarctica," her office said.
Her first celebrity client was Yoko Ono, and she went on to do 60 Essence covers, the first featuring Halle Berry.
She is survived by her husband, Rick Ramos; her mother, Alberta (Bertha) Floyd; one niece, and two nephews. A funeral will be held Saturday at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 279 Lafayette Ave. in Brooklyn.
