Mally Roncal

Celebrity Makeup Artist

Celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal learned at an early age the importance of accepting – and loving – who you are. Growing up in upstate New York, her parents instilled in her the philosophy that “the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful.” This statement has become the mantra by which Mally lives and the power behind it has led to her incredible success.

As a young girl, Mally began experimenting with color and makeup on her mother, an incredible beauty who undoubtedly served as her inspiration. Motivated by her parents, both doctors, Mally pursued a pre-med education, yet she never abandoned her inner passion for art, makeup and fashion. Luckily, with encouragement and inspiration from mentors (including fashion stylist team Mathu and Zaldy, and celebrity hair stylist Danilo, whom she met while designing for Kalinka), Mally soon put aside her pre-med education to pursue her ultimate dream – exploring the power of makeup.

Mally quickly moved to the top of the “it” list of “who’s who” in the beauty industry, quickly becoming one of the industries most dynamic and in demand talents. With her passion for art, color, and design, along with her charm, contagious enthusiasm and magnetic personality, it is no wonder that some of the world’s top celebrities turn to her to prepare for their most important career moments. Mally has also been featured on Oprah, the Today Show, Isaac, the View, and many more.

Mally has a natural ability to make her clients not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful. This has made her a favorite among a versatile group of music industry heavyweights and actors including; Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Hayden Panettiere, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, and Ashlee Simpson.

Top magazines also routinely turn to Mally for her flawless makeup technique, incredible beauty tips and witty copy. According to her long-time agent Jim Indorato, “Mally has a unique relationship with everyone she touches. She gives them the support and love to believe in themselves, which ultimately effects how they look and feel.”

Mally has the ability to create a diverse range of looks from natural and elegant, to colorful and ultra-glamorous. Her beauty philosophy emphasizes healthy, breathable skin that looks flawless and dewy. According to Mally, “Makeup is simply the accessory that allows someone’s true nature and beauty to outwardly manifest itself.”

Now, with the introduction of the Mally Beauty makeup collection, Mally takes her message, and her makeup to women everywhere. Both reinforce the positive energy that is Mally, who believes that “if you do what you love, and you follow your dreams, they can become a reality.” And that’s a beautiful thing!
