Girl boss and cosmetics guru Manna Kadar developed a passion at a very young age for not only the finest beauty products on earth, but for the business behind the most cutting-edge brands.In January of 2012, after years of careful research and development, Manna Kadar Cosmetics was born. A prestige line of products that merge the most cutting edge color trends with the finest ingredients, Manna Kadar Cosmetics are long-wearing and double duty. Adhering to the philosophy that less is more, Manna’s tricks of the trade are found in double-duty products such as Fantasy 3-in-1 that can be used as an eye shadow, blush, and highlighter.
Manna Kadar was featured in the Beauty Store Business Magazine for top 20 CEOs under 40 in the beauty industry. Proving that women can be successful in both beauty and business. (side note, BSB Editor Breanna Armstrong will be on my “How To Work with Celebrities and Influencers” the following day at ISSE).
Fun Fact: Manna uses a Silver Vanity Girl Broadway mirror to help light up her beautiful jewel box of a showroom in Orange County, CA.
How We Met: I sent out a newsletter to my customers and Manna responded and suggested we meet up for lunch. We settled on Le Pain de Quotidien on Melrose, and bonded over our love of beauty, champagne, Paris and all things beauty boss. Tip: Be proactive when you want to meet another beauty boss – there is serious power in collaborations!
My Favorite Manna Kadar Cosmetics Item: Liplocked lippie priming lip wand. I always get compliments when I wear it and I love the easy one-handed chubby stick application. It’s really long wearing and creamy!
