Celebrity makeup artist Sharon Gault – known for her work with Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson, but who is perhaps most famous for her appearance in the seminal Madonna doc Truth or Dare – is currently homeless. Writes Gault’s daughter Adelaide on Instagram:
Just wanted to reach out to you guys because this is a very hard time for me and my mom … She was released in end of August early September due to her phenomenal recovery of her mental health and was let out to me in my care. I let her live with me in my apartment , but unfortunately one day when I was at work my leasing manager saw her and made her leave because she wasn’t on the lease. So she put it to herself to find somewhere to go and called her social worker which let my mom know that there’s a place called the manor in Santa Monica that she could live at but has to pay as well every month. They set everything up and my mom moved into the manor … It’s an awful place full of past homeless people and people with mental health it’s not a good environment for my mom because she’s striving. She deserves to live with me again and to be normal. She can’t sleep at night there due to her roommate keeping the lights on, blasting music, and sometimes even screaming for no reason also she has to share a bathroom with 7 other people … please anything helps if everyone could donate a dollar we could find an apartment together and be happy again I just can’t see my mom like this it’s painful to watch I just want her happy 😞💖 thank you for taking the time in reading this this was very hard for me to do it just feels a bit embarrassing and I’m not here to beg just here to see if a difference can be made . The link is in my moms bio please check it out.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to rase $15,000 to help her get back on her feet.
I never thought I would find myself here asking you all for your help but I feel that this is a truly just and righteous cause ! At very best way we can make a difference in someone’s life!
My longtime friend and mentor of 20 years, Sharon Gault AKA #Mamamakeup is an amazing makeup artist and icon in the industry, AND she is currently HOMELESS and living in a homeless/ assist living situation. She shares a bathroom with 7 people. Cant sleep . Its not conducive to health and healing .
Sharon has fallen on hard times for the past 2 years to no fault of her own. She has been battling mental illness. This illness is related to childhood abuse that was never dealt with. Miraculously, with over a year of treatment she has improved considerably and is so much better! Yes, Sharon Gault is an artist and icon but above all else, she is a beautiful, compassionate & generous human being. She is the most kind & humble person I have ever known.
Due to her illness, Sharon has lost EVERYTHING. (and I do mean everything) She has lost her home, personal belongings, family photos, mementos,friends,clients and loss of her successful career … Sharon gave so much of herself and her time to friends, family and many, many strangers. She has even given Kate Moss a place to live when she first started modeling!!! There is a very long list of people she has worked with and helped. She has literally catapulted hundreds of aspiring makeup artists to achieve their dreams of becoming a professional makeup artist.
Sharon is so humble, she has not even asked anyone for any help! I would like your help to give back to a truly brilliant, gifted and generous human being who gave all of herself to so, so many. I remember her telling me that she would go to the hospital and massage aids patients in the 80’s .Sharon deserves to have her own modest apartment . EVERY PENNY of the donated funds will be put in a trust and go towards Sharon’s rent, security deposit, bills, furniture and household items. I have a feeling she will need more than 5,000. But its a great start! She literally has a few magazines and clothing that is IT! Also, I have been asked a few questions yes, she is on public assistance. Yes, she will be sharing with her daughter Adelaide. She currently lives in a small studio her mother is not permitted to stay in. Yes, she has enough money to pay rent once she can find a place. (combined income of Sharon’s State assist and Addy state assist and income) As of now the state funds go directly to the assist living instead of a home (which is a shame being its unsafe,unhealthy,and a bad environment) . So when she gets an apartment those funds can be used to help pay for reg necessities. So let’s all help make someone so special have a happy holiday and a better life. She deserves a second chance. Thank YOU!
Any questions feel free to email me @ [email protected] I can pass her number along.
