David and Jessica Oyelowo: Celebrity Humanitarians


Selma Director and Actor at the White House

There were a lot of hair stylists and makeup artists ready to go in the lobby at the Ritz Carlton Georgetown this past Friday. We were called to work with the actors and director, but not for Oprah she has her own glam team, for the Oscar nominated movie Selma, which had a special screening at the White House.

I was assigned to David Oyelowo’s wife Jessica. The gorgeous and gracious couple welcomed Brian and I into their suite so we could put the finishing touches on their look before they headed over to the private screening of the movie with POTUS and FLOTUS.  I learned later through the OWN Network interview that David is a faith based actor and chose to play the role of MLK as a father and believer in following the dream. He and his wife have a calm and caring demeanor, which made for a rewarding experience for us. These celebrity humanitarians deserve our admiration.

Here’s a link to the video:


Jessica looked amazing in a long flowing black and white skirt and a simple short sleeved blouse. Her black platform shoes were trimmed in gold. Her face was natural and glowing so we topped off her lips with an orangey tangerine color from Revlon called Rendezvous. She liked it so much, I gave her the lip color right from my pro kit!
