She’s worked her-- makeup magic on some of Hollywood’s hottest A-listers. Mally, good to see you back here. Good morning. MALLY RONCAL: Good morning my lovey. NATALIE MORALES: Let’s start off with Jennifer Lopez because, boy, every-- she-- every woman would love to look like that. She’s got that constant glow 24-7. How does she get that? You’re going to show us on Margaret (ph) here. GFX: Insert photo of actress and singer Jennifer Lopez. MALLY RONCAL: Absolutely. Miss Margaret is ready to glow. We’re going— NATALIE MORALES: There she is to get her glow on. MALLY RONCAL: --to go there. Exactly. Exactly. We’re going to give her the shimmer, shape and glow. It’s kind of like— NATALIE MORALES: That’s what you call it? MALLY RONCAL: Yes, so it’s like a three-step kind of system to get everything you want. So first what you’re going to do is you’re going to take like a soft shimmer powder. Okay, and what you want to do is take that and I like to take it like all over the lid and just around the corner, around the cheekbone. So what you’re going to do is-- this is going to kind of make you look like you had a face-lift. Roncal applies makeup to model Margaret. NATALIE MORALES: Hmm. MALLY RONCAL: It’s going to lift everything up, it’s going— NATALIE MORALES: Enlighten. MALLY RONCAL: --encompass the entire area with luminosity which is also going to make you look like you had a little sleep which nobody ever does. Next, the next step is the shape, now I want to you make a fishy face. There you go. Fishy face, like back when we used to put our blush back in the eighties, remember that. GFX: Supers “Mally’s Tips For A Signature Glow: Use A Matte Contour Shaping Powder In Hollows Of Cheeks, Temples, Hairline And Down Neck”. NATALIE MORALES: And you’re using a contouring darker shade of powder for that, right? MALLY RONCAL: Exactly. A contouring like a shaping powder. NATALIE MORALES: Okay. MALLY RONCAL: This makes you look like you lost five pounds, which hello— NATALIE MORALES: Gives her the cheekbone. MALLY RONCAL: --who doesn’t want that. NATALIE MORALES: There you go. MALLY RONCAL: Exactly. It makes them pop. And then, finally, here comes the glow. NATALIE MORALES: All right. MALLY RONCAL: This is the blush. This is the thing that kind of makes you look like you just had that very romantic evening, if you know what I’m saying. Right on the apples of the cheek— NATALIE MORALES: Right. MALLY RONCAL: --blend it in, shimmer, shape and glow. You’ve got that JLo glow. NATALIE MORALES: She looks fantastic. MALLY RONCAL: Love it. Thank you, Miss Margaret. NATALIE MORALES: Okay, wonderful. Okay, now let’s move on another one of your clients. She looks great. MALLY RONCAL: Thank you. NATALIE MORALES: It’s Beyoncé and she has the famously nude lips. GFX: Insert still of singer Beyoncé Knowles. MALLY RONCAL: Yes, very gorgeous. NATALIE MORALES: Which is a look that we’d all love to create, but sometimes we can’t find the right shade of nude. MALLY RONCAL: Exactly. NATALIE MORALES: So what do you do? MALLY RONCAL: Exactly. Well, number one, you want to use like a great nude lip kit, something that really is made for that nude lip. And the secret is you want to have it based in some color. A lot of nude-- oh, good catch. Roncal applies makeup to model Star. NATALIE MORALES: Almost-- yeah, almost lost that. MALLY RONCAL: There you go, girl. You want it to have like a little bit of a color base as opposed to like a flat brown or a beige. Like this is based in a little bit of a pink or an apricot. So that’s going to give you that perfect, perfect color so you don’t look like night of the living dead walking around with your nude lips. GFX: Supers “Mally’s Tips For A Signature Glow: Use Liner Matching Your Lip Tone And Line Outside The Lip Line”. NATALIE MORALES: Right. MALLY RONCAL: So you take it, a-- a nude lipstick. And I love to use a lip liner that matches your lip tone exactly so you can really, really work the shape of the lip. And here’s a big tip. NATALIE MORALES: Okay. MALLY RONCAL: You want to kind of join the cupid’s bow— NATALIE MORALES: Why? MALLY RONCAL: --of the lip because what that does is it gives you that sort of bee stung, Naomi Campbell fuller lip. NATALIE MORALES: That’s the secret. I like it. Okay. MALLY RONCAL: Good secret. And then, of course, you top it off with a great gloss. NATALIE MORALES: A gloss. MALLY RONCAL: Yes, exactly, so you’re getting that high shine. When you’re doing a nude, it’s a good idea to make it little glossy, so it doesn’t look so-- look, sexy. NATALIE MORALES: That’s a good color on you. That looks good on you. MALLY RONCAL: Lucky girl. NATALIE MORALES: Wonderful. MALLY RONCAL: Wonderful. Exactly. NATALIE MORALES: Okay, thank you so much, Star (ph). MALLY RONCAL: Thank you, Star. NATALIE MORALES: And over here, let’s talk about the perfect eyebrow. MALLY RONCAL: Yes. NATALIE MORALES: Because it’s so important, really does frame the face. And Lucy Liu is an example. Somebody you worked on as well. So how do you achieve that look? GFX: Insert photo of actress Lucy Liu. MALLY RONCAL: Well, the trick is this is about choosing the right tone of the brow. NATALIE MORALES: Right. MALLY RONCAL: Just because we have gorgeous brunette hair. Oh, my goodness. Really dark. You don’t want to necessarily match it. NATALIE MORALES: Right. MALLY RONCAL: That’s really going to make the brow look very sort of Groucho Marx-esque, hello, not the look we’re going for. So you want to go a little bit lighter with the brow when you have a dark brunette hair like this. Roncal applies makeup to an unidentified model. NATALIE MORALES: And I imagine the grooming of the brow, very important. GFX: Supers “Mally’s Tips For A Signature Glow: Choose Shade Based On Hair/Brow Color And Skin Tone”. MALLY RONCAL: Absolutely. NATALIE MORALES: Keep the eye open and wide. MALLY RONCAL: Yeah, keep it nice and groomed, nice and clean. Sometimes you just do that and you’re kind of looking polished and done. Another little secret that I love is I like to marry a little bit of a pencil and a powder. Instead of just doing like a pencil which can look really harsh and a powder that can be too subtle— NATALIE MORALES: Powder just softens it up a little bit. MALLY RONCAL: You got it baby girl and it makes it bulletproof, so you can like shake your booty in, you know, rainforest. NATALIE MORALES: So she is bulletproof for shaking booty in a rainforest.

NATALIE MORALES: And then finally, Angelina Jolie’s smoky eye. You have got the gorgeous Danielle (ph) here. You’re going to show us how to get that look. GFX: Insert photo of actress Angelina Jolie. MALLY RONCAL: Of course. So a smoky eye is I have to say sometimes gets a bum rap. NATALIE MORALES: Yeah. MALLY RONCAL: Because everyone is like smoky eye, you look like you got punched, you know, on face or so whatever. NATALIE MORALES: I think it looks gorgeous. MALLY RONCAL: Right. I love, you’re working it, let’s be honest. Okay, but the secret to it is this. You want to use an eye shadow base always. Okay, that’s the thing— GFX: Supers “Mally’s Tips For A Signature Glow: Always Start With An Eye Shadow Base”. NATALIE MORALES: Why? What does that do? MALLY RONCAL: What that’s going to do is you put that on first, you like dab it all over the lid. That’s going to keep your smoky eye from getting messy, or getting sort of like-- it keeps it very professional and polished looking— NATALIE MORALES: Sure. MALLY RONCAL: --which is what you want when you’re doing a smoky eye. NATALIE MORALES: Okay. MALLY RONCAL: So make sure you use a base that makes it not crease, it makes it stay where you want to put it. NATALIE MORALES: Okay. MALLY RONCAL: Now we have actually done a great sort of soft smoky gray here, but the trick is also that you don’t always have to use a dark color. You can do a great smoky eye in like a gorgeous green or a plum or something like that. We want to— GFX: Supers “Mally’s Tips For A Signature Glow: Place Soft Shimmer In Inner Corners To Lighten And Brighten”. Roncal applies makeup to model Danielle.
