Established by a self-made mom-preneur, Manna Kadar Beauty creates bold impact with luxurious, multi-functional products and an unshakeable philosophy of philanthropy

IRVINE, Calif. – Beauty can refresh, inspire, and enhance self-confidence. When you look good, you feel good, and whether your concept of beauty is minimalist or total glam, Manna Kadar Cosmetics (MKC) is designed to simplify the process. Founded by self-made, self-funded minority mom-preneur Manna Kadar, the MKC family of brands includes Manna Kadar Beauty, Goddess by Manna Kadar, Beauty and the Bump, Haute Dog luxury pet products, Mason Man Skincare, and Manna Kadar Luxe Bath and Body. Each curated line creates a full 360 luxury experience, offering uniquely formulated beauty solutions that delight the senses and elevate your surroundings. Now, meet the bold-spirited innovator behind the award-winning, three-step Beauty Simplified System and an Inc. Magazine “Top 5,000” brand that gives back 10% of annual profits to those in need.

“Feeling beautiful and beautifying your space can be so impactful on your day,” explains Kadar. “I’ve found that by really listening to the product issues men and women experience, it’s possible to create high-quality, luxury options capable of changing a person’s entire outlook. I’m here to help empower customers to be the best version of themselves, whatever that looks like for them.”

Born in Paris, France, then raised in Lincoln Heights, California, Kadar learned to define beauty - and life - for herself. A natural-born entrepreneur and multi-tasker, Kadar juggled owning and growing her own business at the age of 16, while at the same time earning a degree in Finance and Distribution Management from USC. She has gained power through education, and today she empowers and educates customers to create beauty efficiently and effectively all while raising a family and growing her 6 brands into globally recognized names. Establishing what would become the MKC empire, she built a business around empowering customers to define and create their own concepts of beauty.

Today, Kadar’s six beauty brands offer a complete luxury experience for men, women, and pets. Her Beauty Simplified System provides instructions to help makeup lovers of all skill levels coordinate their products and create easy, gorgeous looks in just 7 minutes. With bestsellers like LipLocked Priming Gloss Stain, Manna Kadar Beauty simplifies and streamlines the makeup process, offering feel-good luxury products that are built for real life. Each long-lasting, multi-functional option is made to go the distance, helping women feel beautifully confident in the boardroom or on the playground.
Successful, in part, because of the sacrifices of others (particularly by her mom and grandmother), Kadar now seeks to give back by advancing local and global causes. That includes supporting families of sick children (through a non-profit called Miracles for Kids), along with donating more than 30,000 beauty products to those in need. She also serves on the boards of both Goodwill and USC Women in Business, in addition to helping combat today’s greatest social injustices through volunteer work with Gen Next.
