Makeup artist Mally Roncal’s love affair with all things glam started at an early age. As a young girl growing up in upstate New York, Mally began experimenting with makeup on her mother, an incredible beauty who was and continues to be her biggest inspiration. From that early age, Mally’s parents instilled in her the philosophy that the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful—a mantra that has guided Mally in her every pursuit.

Determined to follow in her parents’ footsteps, Mally pursued a pre-med education. But the pull of her first love—makeup—proved too strong, and she put aside her plans to become a doctor to follow her true passion: beauty. Mally quickly moved to the top of the "it" list in the beauty world, working first at the Shisheido makeup counter at Barneys and ultimately as a makeup artist for private clients. Her passion for art, color, and design—along with her charm, contagious enthusiasm, and magnetic personality—helped her become one of the industry’s most dynamic, in-demand talents. For a decade, Mally traveled the globe doing makeup for some of the most fab faces in the world, including Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. Renowned for her ability to make her clients look and feel beautiful, Mally became the go-to makeup artist for all things beauty, sharing her advice in the pages of top magazines and on shows like Oprah, The Today Show, Rachael Ray, and The View.
But for Mally, looking your most glam isn’t just for Hollywood A-listers; every woman deserves to look as "gorgois" on the outside as she feels on the inside. Mally made it her mission to share her beauty philosophy—empowering women everywhere to celebrate the differences that make them so fierce, fabulous, and amazing. Her experience as one of the most sought-after makeup artists in Hollywood means that Mally knows all the tricks of the trade, and why traditional makeup comes up short. From so-called translucent powder that shows up in the flash of red carpet photos to lipsticks, concealers, blushes, and bronzers that fade all too fast, Mally identifies endless makeup no-nos and fixes them.
That’s what originally inspired and empowered her to found Mally Beauty, a collection of over 1,000 products designed to deliver what Mally calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day. Created for the real woman who doesn’t have time to touch up her makeup midday, the high-performance products are developed to offer real results and ultra-glam looks.
Since first founding Mally Beauty nine years ago, Mally has given millions of women the strength—and the tools—to find the beauty within themselves. She created her collection in keeping with her original philosophy that the things that make you different also make you beautiful, and dedicates every day of her life to helping women celebrate their unique beauty. As a wife, mother of three, makeup maven, and entrepreneur, Mally is a firm believer—and living proof—that if you do what you love and follow your dreams, they can become a reality.
