In Memorium:            
Maurice Stein, Makeup Artist: 1923  -  2018
Maurice Stein, a veteran Hollywood Makeup Artist for over 60 years and founder of Cinema Secrets in Burbank, passed away peacefully at home on Feb. 28th after a long battle with cancer.  He was 91. Open Services will be held on Sunday, March 4th, at 9:00 am at the Mount Sinai Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. Maurice was part of the makeup team for the original Planet of the Apes movie and did television makeup for The Golden Girls for several seasons. He created the Cinema Secrets Cosmetics makeup line for  beauty professionals and opened his studio in Burbank in the 70’s. His was the first line to utilize medical grade silicone in his unique formulations.

Known for his sense of humor as well as his innovative sanitation methods for makeup application, including a variety of Brushes, Brush Cleaners, Stainless Steel palettes and Spatulas, his lectures about how to avoid cross-product contamination will be remembered. When asked if he tested on animals, Maurice always answered, "No, I test on Makeup Artists." Maurice's broad smile greeted each client and novice makeup artist who visited his studio or attended his lectures, and he will be missed by his close circle of friends as well as the many of those he helped to learn and enter the makeup profession.
