Make-up artist Floyd dies

The celebrity cosmetics guru passed away in her sleep at her home in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday (28Jan10). No cause of death had been given as WENN went to press.

Floyd began her career working with Yoko Ono and went on to team up with numerous stars including Whitney Houston, Diana Ross and Halle Berry, while her work has been seen in movies and on more than 200 magazine covers.

The make-up artist was recently embroiled in a legal battle with one of her clients, Queen Latifah, over allegations the actress failed to pay her bills.

Floyd is survived by her husband, Rick Ramos.
