She spoke to INSIDE EDITION about working with the Vermont senator. 

"The first time I had about a minute-and-a-half to do his makeup and he does not like makeup at all, he just wants the bare minimum," she said. 

She has done Sanders' makeup six times since he announced he will run for president and says that the candidate has warmed up to her. She also said that he does not require a lot of makeup, just a bit of powder. 

Danielle is non-partisan--she's also done makeup for Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Dr. Ben Carson.

She admits that the candidates with the best skin are Martin O'Malley, Dr. Carson and Rick Santorum.
