Hollywood makeup artist Jake Bailey was found dead on Friday morning in an apparent suicide, TheWrap has learned.

The 37-year-old transformed star clients including Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and Emmy Rossum.

Bailey was discovered at around 8:25 a.m. PT at his home on Holly Drive in Los Angeles after succumbing to possible carbon monoxide poisoning, Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner office told TheWrap. An autopsy is pending.

Rossum was the first of Bailey’s famous clients to express her remorse, writing on Twitter, “I am gutted to hear of my friend Jake’s passing. I saw him on Sunday, we flew together on a plane. He made me laugh as always.

“I will miss his sense of humor, talent and kindness,” she said. “If there are angels in heaven, they just got a little prettier… because Jake is up there painting their faces… putting lashes on them…”

TheWrap has reached out to the Los Angeles Coroner for comment.
