Maurice Stein, founder of Cinema Secrets Paramedical Make-up, is an Academy-Award winning makeup artist. Here are some of his Credits:
Over his 50-year career, Maurice Stein's Academy Award-winning (Planet of the Apes, 1969) make-up artistry has touched the faces of some of the brightest stars of film, television, and commercials-even three US presidents. He has worked on over 200 films and television shows and has more than 4,000 commercials to his credit.
Stein was the first makeup artist inducted to the California Cosmetology Association Hall of Fame and is included in the National Cosmetology Association Hall of Renown.
In 1984, when he retired as a professional makeup artist in the entertainment industry to found a small cosmetics and special effects supply in Burbank, Maurice's Cinema Secrets became an instant hit among makeup artists, studios, and many of 'Hollywood's most expensive faces.' The family-run business outgrew its location within three years and moved to the current building on Riverside Drive.
Maurice also formulated his own line of cosmetics to satisfy the special needs of the entertainment business and advance standards for clinical applications in the medical industry. He regularly volunteers to help cancer patients and burn survivors use makeup to minimize the appearance of scars and discoloration.
Through the American Cancer Society and through the assisted help of the National Cosmetology Association, Stein became one of the first make-up professionals to provide his corrective makeup techniques and educational services to the national Look Good, Feel Better Program. Stein has also worked with cancer patients at City of Hope and burn survivors at The Phoenix Society, five children's burn units in Shriners hospitals, the Johns Hopkins Burn Rehabilitation Center, and the Grossman Burn Centers.
