Victoria Jackson revolutionized the beauty world as a leading Hollywood makeup artist turned entrepreneur and infomercial pioneer. Founder/CEO of the global brand, Victoria Jackson Cosmetics, a passionate philanthropist and in-demand spokesperson, Jackson has a rags-to-riches story that includes teaching professional makeup at UCLA, a stint as a reporter/producer, and volunteer work at correctional facilities and hospitals. The author of two acclaimed titles, Redefining Beauty and Make Up Your Life, Jackson is a media veteran with most recent appearances in the Huffington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Oz’s radio show, AARP TV’s My Generation, and in two TV documentaries about her current transition from “mascara to medicine.” Married to Bill Guthy of infomercial giant Guthy-Renker, Victoria and her husband established the Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation (GJCF) in 2008 after their daughter Ali was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) Spectrum Disease. GJCF funds life-saving research to better understand, treat, and ultimately cure NMO.
Victoria and her family live in Los Angeles.
Ali Guthy — who attends the University of California, Santa Barbara and is pursuing a double major in psychology and sociology — has kept a journal since she was a young girl. At the Buckley School in Los Angeles, she won the school's first ever CIF Championship as Captain of the Girls' Varsity Tennis team and served as co-Editor-in-Chief for the award-winning newspaper, The Student Voice. She is also the managing editor of The Spectrum, the newsletter she created in association with the Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation. In Santa Barbara, Ali heads up Team NMO, the walking team that has set fundraising records during the MS SOCIETY’s annual walks. As the Hunger-Houselessless Coordinator for Community Affairs Board (CAB) at UCSB (the largest student-run volunteer organization west of the Mississippi River) Ali coordinates weekly Breakfast and Dinner Club events, during which volunteers prepare and serve meals for houseless individuals in the community. Ali also co-founded Swipes for the Houseless, a program that enables UCSB students to donate unused meals from their college dining plan to those in the area impacted by hunger.
