Derrick ended up doing her makeup for the St. Patrick's Day dinner at the White House in 2009 and For the next 18 months, He was at the White House in the East Wing with the First Lady every day. Not long after, One of the most influential women in the world - Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey - Called upon the celebrity make-up artist to audition for her. And as the saying goes the rest is history.
