On April 17th at 8 P.M., QVC is scheduled to air their yearly Beauty with Benefits broadcast featuring 19 different beauty brands. 80% of the purchase price of the merchandise will benefit CEW’s Cancer and Careers, a charitable program established to empower, educate and provide essential tools to people with cancer so that they can thrive in the workplace. This year, Mally Roncal is one of the benefit’s spokespeople, and since she has such an incredible story to tell and so many beauty tips to share, we caught up with her for a quick Q&A.
Q: Mally, where do you get your beauty inspiration?
A: My mother. She passed away from breast cancer when I was 17. From a very young age, the thing I found most beautiful about her was not only her beauty on the outside, but also her beauty on the inside. She always treated everyone she met with respect and kindness. She inspires me every day.
Q: What is one beauty product that you carry with you at all times and why?
A: My Poreless Face Defender. The thing about traditional translucent powder is it is actually white. It does everything translucent powder is supposed to do without making you look white, dry and cakey. It helps to soften lines and wrinkles, mattifies skin and sets your makeup. I cannot live without it!
Q: What is your favorite product for every day wear?
A: My Volumizing Mascara! I used to spend nearly an hour trying to create perfect, thick, full lashes on my celebrity clients. My Volumizing Mascara formula takes that whole process and puts it in one tube! Apply two coats on the top lashes, one on the bottom and you’re good to go! It’s the fastest easiest way to look awake and well-rested!
Q: What is one beauty secret that every girl should know?
A: Don’t forget to do your eyebrows! So many people neglect them. They lift your entire face. Also, when in doubt, smile! It always makes you look prettier!
Q: What is your favorite spring beauty or fashion trend? What is your least favorite?
A: Pastels! I am obsessed! From clothes, eye shadow, nail color, shoes etc. I love it all! I rarely have a least favorite. As long as you own it and love it you can’t go wrong!
Q: One thing that every girl should never leave the house without is…..
A: Lip product. There’s nothing less attractive than dry lips! Whether it’s balm, gloss or lipstick, they’re all great ways to keep your lips looking juicy and healthy.
