She recently released her first book, "Face Values: The Foundation of Beauty" that tells the story of how she left her 9-5 job to work in the entertainment industry as a make-up artist.
Working on a movie like Spike Lee's "Chi-Raq" and a TV pilot with actor, Common, Deida has proven that her skill is more than skin deep.
She also contributes to Chicago's inner-city community with her organization, Reel Beauty, by providing self-esteem workshops for young female students.
"Face Values: The Foundation of Beauty" is currently available on Amazon.com.
