Gov Candidate Hires Makeup Artist, Fights ‘Diva’ Label

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown hired his own makeup artist for his debate performance this week. Despite the other candidates using the TV station-provided makeup artist, Brown’s campaign (he’s a Democrat running for governor) insists “he’s no diva.”

Did all of his preparation pay off? Not according to Todd Eberly, professor at St. Mary’s College of Md: “Brown stumbled right out of the gate.”

Ouch. Maybe a little less powder next time?
