The New Jersey delegation to the Democratic National Convention, to be held in Denver Aug. 25 to 28, will include at least one makeup artist: Bobbi Brown.

Brown, a longtime Democrat, said she hosted two fund-raisers earlier this year for presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D., Ill.), and at the second of them, New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine asked her to serve in the delegation.
“I was an early Barack supporter and I’ve done Michelle’s makeup,” said Brown in a telephone interview from her Montclair, N.J., home, adding that her oldest son will be a page at the convention. “Barack is incredibly smart and he is the guy who will make the changes that need to be made.”
Despite her veer into politics, Brown isn’t forgetting about her day job as head of her eponymous makeup line. “We’re inviting all Democratic delegates to the Bobbi Brown counter at the Nordstrom at Park Meadows Mall for a complimentary makeup lesson with one of my artists,” said Brown, noting that the appointments will be held Aug. 27 and 28. She will also teach a master class to makeup artists at the store. As well, each Democratic delegate will be given a goodie bag of Bobbi Brown products upon checking into their hotels.
