The Makeup Show L.A.

Cabral-Ebert is best known for her work on The Perfect Storm (2000), Erin Brockovich (2000), Dead Poets Society (1989), Outbreak (1995) and the original Dallas TV series (1978-1991).

Besides being president, Cabral-Ebert is also Local 706’s assistant business representative and one of the early advocates of AB 1839, the new California film tax credit that has created a boom in employment for her members and for industry workers throughout the state.
The Makeup Show’s “The Femme Fatale” will present a cast of women from celluloid history by recreating numerous iconic heroines as well as the most hated villains through body art, MUFX or fashion inspired beauty makeup and wardrobe. The evening will include hors-d’oeuvres, cocktails and dancing.
