Jacque Mgido is a force to be reckoned with. Her passion is in helping women of all colors to shine. She believes that darker complexions have been neglected by the cosmetics and beauty industry, so she started her own brand. However, she doesn’t describe her line as just a “black” brand. Her motivation is to make her beauty secrets, make up, and skin care line available to the entire world.
The Jacque Mgido line offers brilliant colors that work immaculately with the complexions of Africans, Asians, Latinas, Caucasians, and Indian men and women – a truly international brand bridging culture and race. Her products are all fragrance-free, allergy tested, noncomedogenic, and made in California.
Why a makeup line that caters to all skin colors and types? Because at our core, we all want to be beautiful!
Jacque started humbly with Vault Cosmetics – the first cosmetics brand started by a Zimbabwean to cater to the climate of Africa. An early passion for beauty has since grown into a brand named after Mrs. Mgido herself.
To those who are unfamiliar with Zimbabwe, this is an astonishing feat. The country is exceptionally beautiful and culturally rich, but like many African countries it has suffered some economic hardships in the past decade.
Though Jacque resides in California now, she stays true to her roots, often traveling back to her native country, and staying deeply involved in her local community.
She has proven that no matter where or how you start, you can create greatness by honoring the beauty within you and zealously sharing it with others. She is truly dedicated to bringing this message to the world through the Jacque Mgido line.
As a child Mgido played with her mother’s makeup, and now those moments of making herself glamorous in front of a bedroom mirror have grown beyond her own face. She now enhances the beauty of people all over the world.
The Mgido philosophy is encapsulated in one phrase - beauty is how you feel.
How you feel inside will always reflect on the outside.
The Jacque Mgido line specializes in bringing “color” back to all complexions because people from different cultural backgrounds offer an incredible palate upon which to bring out an inner magnificence. On many skin tones, color really “pops” helping to accentuate the gorgeousness of the human form in all its myriad hues.
Jacque says, “I teach women to look beautiful wearing makeup, not to be ‘worn’ by their makeup.” This skill and ability to reach so many people, and then empower them to surface their inner goddess is priceless, worth more than any physical work of art.
Jacque Mgido aims at bringing amazing makeup and skin care products to the world, but also to connect with individuals to teach them application techniques and beauty secrets.
She feels that education is a key component to her mission. That is why the Jacque Mgido line is offered with video tutorials, in-person trainings, and additional ways to soak up Mgido’s passion and expertise.
When you feel beautiful on the outside, it will change how you feel internally, and how you feel on the inside will overflow into your outer appearance. Jacque Mgido wants everyone to experience the heightened sense of beauty that resides within themselves, innately, but with a little help from a trusted source.
