Jackson’s hair, makeup done for service

LaToya Jackson says her younger brother Michael's hair and makeup were beautifully done for his California entombment, which took place 70 days after he died.

His June 25 death at the age of 50 has been ruled a homicide, but the circumstances are still under investigation. A private interment ceremony was held for family and friends last week at the Great Mausoleum in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale.

He was dressed in all white pearl beads going across, draped across. A beautiful big gold belt. Like ... a belt that you win being a boxer, People.com quoted LaToya Jackson as saying in an interview to air on TV's 20/20 Friday night. Full makeup ... His hair was done beautifully, his makeup was done beautifully.

(He looked) absolutely fabulous, she added.

Entombed with Michael were sunglasses, one of his iconic white gloves and some other personal effects, People.com said LaToya revealed.
