EVERYONE knows that showbusiness is an exciting business. With all the glitz and glamour that come with the biz, people can’t help but be in awe of the stunning celebrities they see on film, on TV and on magazines. But behind every beautiful celebrity lies a masterful celebrity make-up artist. One such artist is Filipino-American Mally Roncal.
Mally grew up in upstate New York where her parents instilled in her the philosophy that "the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful." This same statement has guided Mally on her road to success.
As a young girl, Mally has always been interested in color and make-up, experimenting with her mother, who happens to be an incredible beauty herself. With her parents both being doctors, initially Mally was determined to follow in her parents’ footsteps. Still, she never abandoned her inner passion for art, makeup and fashion. Fortunately, 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 decided to let her pre-med education take a backseat and instead pursue her ultimate dream: to explore the power of make-up.
And it seems Mally did make the right move.
Mally quickly moved to the top of the "it" list of "who’s who" in the beauty industry, quickly becoming one of the industry’s most sought-after talent. With her passion for art, color, and design, along with her charm, infectious enthusiasm and bubbly personality, it is no surprise that some of the world’s top celebrities turn to her to prepare for their most important career moments. In addition to that, Mally has also been featured on several top-rating TV shows like Oprah, The Today Show, Isaac, The View, and many more. Her long list of clientele includes Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Hayden Penettierre, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion and supermodel Petra Nemcova (who is the newest image model for the Kamiseta fashion line back in the Philippines).
Some of the best-selling magazines also has Mally on top of their lists for their pictorials for her flawless make-up 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 is truly an artist as she 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, which is what most Hollywood stars aim for. According to Mally, "Make-up is simply the accessory that allows someone’s true nature and beauty to outwardly manifest itself."
Recently, Mally introduced the Mally Beauty make-up collection, where she takes her message—‚and her make-up—to women everywhere. Among the bestsellers are the Perfect Palette Total Face Kit, Discovery Kit, Paint the Town Ultimate Brush Kit, and the City Chick Nude Lip Kit, among others.
To complete the whole package, Mally has also launched her newest product: a signature fragrance of a modern floral citrus theme with a captivating tropical twist. Core to the fragrance is the sampaguita flower, the national flower of the Philippines as captured in nature by Givaudan’s Scent-trek technology. The sampaguita flower, has been scientifically and artfully reconstructed in its natural expression without damage to this delicate flora resource. This multilayered fragrance is said to wrap you in the love, happiness and hopeful energy that powers Mally’s open, warm philosophy and life. One spray and the scent will lift your spirits… the Mally way!
