So this morning I had the pleasure of meeting Zimbabwe’s very own, world renowned make-up artist, Jackie Mgido. She is the perfect combination of grace and energy, and with her international accent, a mix of everything between American and Zimbabwean, she has an appealing conversational manner and makes you feel instantly at ease in her company.
Jackie is the founder of Vault Cosmetics and although her roots are from Zimbabwe she has lived in the USA for some time now developing her skills as a make-up artist. She enrolled in an elite beauty school, undertaking a Masters degree in beauty and special effects in California and went on to earn coveted opportunities working with some of Hollywoods hottest celebrities, Sylvester Stallone, Neo, Maya, Snoop Dog, Cuba Gooding Junior, Russell Brand, Wiz Kalifa, Far East Movement , Randy Jackson, Ted Danson and John Legend to name more than a few.
Jackie’s career lead to her instructing and help develop other make up lines, until she eventually decided it was time to create her own. Vault Cosmetics has been created in line with the belief of enhancing your features, not changing them and Jackie “wanted to create a makeup line that would help to make every women’s dream to look and feel beautiful a reality”.
Vault Cosmetics have therefore developed an extensive range of fresh formulas and stunning colors. Whether you want to indulge in your outter image or unlock the inner vault of your beauty Vault cosmetics is designed to compliment women of every age, creed and colour.
Although Jackie is set to continue touring the world and is leaving Zimbabwe soon, you will still have the chance to meet her and see her amazing product line at a couple more events that are lined up. With the launch of my own Non-Surgical Studio in the very near future, we are hoping for a collaboration with Vault Cosmetics, for the ultimate in pampering and skin perfecting solutions to make women out there look and feel beautiful.
