Services will be held Monday in Guthrie Okla., for celebrity makeup artist Ross Burton, who died Dec. 2 at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City. He was 46. The cause of death was due to complications from pneumonia, according to his father.
Prior to his death, Burton worked as an Emmy-nominated makeup artist for “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and counted among his personal clients celebrities such as Natalie Cole, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria and Lauryn Hill. “Ross Burton saw beauty where others only see laugh lines,” Winfrey told WWD on Wednesday. “He knew how to make a woman look wonderful but, more than that, he had a gift for making a woman feel wonderful. He was a creative, curious, passionate man. And boy did he love products. It would thrill him to find the perfect lip color. I’ve seen him actually giddy over a new set of brushes. He always entered the room with a smile, bringing lots of positive energy. And who can forget that distinct baritone voice? I am still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that he’s no longer here. His attention to detail was signature Ross Burton, and I always say, love is in the details. He brought it!”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
