Mally Beauty makeup for Tracy Reese 2012

The Tracy Reese collection for Spring/Summer 2012 showed lots of florals and pastels. And Mally Roncal of Mally Beauty was on site to provide the fresh and dreamy look that Tracy Reese sought to compliment her collection. The foundation was more of a satin finish than the dewy complexions that we’ve been seeing on the Spring 2012 runways. Mally was sure to let her team know that No translucent powder was to be used, instead the artists used Mally’s Face Defender.

The lips were very glossy and in two different shades, Life is Fuchsia pink on the top and Be a Peach orange on the bottom. The blush, in 24/7 medium was placed high above the apples of the cheeks for flushed look. And eyes and brows were kept strong.

I asked Mally to tell me about her color inspirations for the Tracy Reese show and here is what she had to say:

·     To create a smooth, even base for the foundation to glide over, Mally used her Perfect Prep Poreless Primer.

·     To achieve a satiny-matte finish, Mally’s Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation was applied all over the skin.

·     For a non-shimmery, healthy flush, Mally used her 24/7 Blush in Medium high on the apples of the cheek.

·     To set the makeup and reduce shine, Mally’s Poreless Face Defender was applied all over the face.


·     Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Midnight was applied to the top and inner lash line to create the illusion of thicker lashes.

·     Two coats of Mally’s Black Volumizing Mascara were applied to the top lashes.

·     To emphasize strong yet natural brows, Mally used her Brow Boost.


·     To create a multi-dimensional shade, Mally used Lip Magnifier in Fierce on the top lip and Lipgloss in Be a Peach on the bottom.

  1. I love the concept of two tone lips, and the pink & peach is perfect for spring. The blush seems a bit washed out in the photos for a ‘strong blush’ – but the look is very fresh for S/S.

    • Not all of the models had their makeup done at that point, it was 2 hours before the show. The model in the first image gives a better representation of the strong blush look that Mally was looking for.

  2. Love these backstage shots. I have always found backstage way more interesting than the sleek runway show. It’s real!

  3. Mally has a LE Tracy Reese kit available too. I’m pretty sure it will be a TSV on QVC this FRiday!
