The pair won back-to-back Oscars together for 'Mrs. Doubtfire' and 'Ed Wood.'

After announcing a list of contenders for lifetime achievement honors at the upcoming Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards, the organization has announced that make-up artist Ve Neill and hair stylist Yolanda Toussieng will be the ones to have their careers toasted.

“The bodies of work of Ve Neill and Yolanda Toussieng are legendary, and we are proud to rank them among the best in the history of our profession,” said Susan Cabral-Ebert, President of IATSE Local 706. “They are extraordinary artists and accomplished leaders in the industry, and it is our pleasure to name them as this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award recipients.”

It’s a serendipitous pairing as both Neill and Toussieng won Oscars for their work on “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Ed Wood” and they have worked together frequently on films like “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Batman Returns.” They also both won Daytime Emmys for their work with Paul Reubens on “Pee Wee’s Playhouse.”

In addition, Neill’s credits also include “Hoffa” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curst of the Black Pearl,” while Toussieng’s include “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” and “The Way Back.”

The Make-Up and Hair Stylists Guild will announce nominees in all categories on Jan. 13. Winners will be unveiled at the awards gala on Feb. 20.
