Pro makeup artist Barbara Deyo recently had the honor of working with CBS News as MUA for president Obama while he was visiting Detroit. Excited to learn about her experience, I sat down with Barbara to hear her story. The following is a transcription of that interview.
Growing up in Madison Heights, Ms.Deyo stepped into the world of makeup by working various beauty counters at Oakland Mall during her high school summer breaks. Soon, Deyo landed a job with Clinique (Detroit), where she excelled for the next three years. Her talents then led to Los Angeles, working for MAC Cosmetics, and then Clinique once again, but this time as a trainer.
