Transformation Friday || Sleek Eyes & Red Lips

This may or may not be the face I make when my friends volunteer their faces to Mige’s Parlor: Today, I had the lovely opportunity to slap all types of makeup on my friend’s face to create a sleek eye and bold red lips look. The main trick to nailing any type of makeup look is to have a clean and even canvas. I achieved this by using a great primer that allowed the foundation to go on her skin very smoothly. Moreover, an accompanying tip…

San Francisco Food Crawl

Because we were bored and bougie, my friends and I took a trip to San Francisco this past weekend to embark on our very own Food Crawl. For eight hours, we ate, drank, and explored the city from the busy streets of the Mission to the posh streets of Hayes Valley. Our first stop was La Taqueria Cancun, where I got a soft taco with beef tongue. Then, we headed to a chocolate-lover’s dream: Dandelion. The smell of chocolate is quite strong as soon as you step…

Transformation Friday: Soft Gold & Mauve Lips

So yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to play on one of my friend’s face. The gif below may or may not be an exact replica of what I was feeling on the inside when she agreed to let me publish it on my youtube channel. Now when someone agrees to give you a blank canvas, you have to use it wisely! I decided to go for something fresh and soft- gold eyes and mauve lips. To start, I used the NYX Pore Filler. It helps…

I know everyone and their mother is obsessed with liquid lipsticks. I mean who wouldn’t? The name itself is completely revolutionary: liquid lipstick.

How To Wear A Purple Lip

“DAYUM MIGE, YO LIPS ARE POPPIN!” Said everyone that has ever seen me wearing this lip combo. Forget the classic red lip, the bold purple lip is now in session. I’ll admit that I’ve been more attracted to purple lip colors than I have been with red lip colors. There’s something about a deep purple lip that basically sets my face for severe #slayage. In order to wear a bold purple lip, you’ll need two things: a dark purple lip liner and a purple lipstick. I have…

10 Ways To Step Up Your Makeup Game

Last week, I got asked a question about what I consider essential makeup. Although I gave a very brief list (concealer, powder, mascara, brow powder), I’ve expanded it below to include what I consider my makeup essentials. (1) Face Primer: Before you put anything on your face, you want to make sure you have a good base, and that your makeup lasts a while. For oily skin, I’d recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte primer or my favorite primer ever, the Kiko Mat Base primer. The Rimmel…

An Unlikely Pair: Culottes & Blazers

When you live in SoCal, winter tends to look like fall. So I decided to try on my secret santa gift which were these culottes. I guess you can say culottes are a pair of high waisted, free fitting, bermuda shorts? I liked this pair because it’s quite unique and interesting. There’s some black, white, blue, and red colors in these culottes, so I decided to pair it with an off the shoulder fitted black top. Because the culottes are so busy, I found it easiest…

Get Smooth Skin: Bentonite Clay Mask Review

I’d first like to thank my friend, Ida, for changing my life by introducing me to this product! I got this jar of bentonite clay about two years ago for $12 off of Amazon. I didn’t really use it that much when I first got it. But then about a month ago, I said yolo, and the rest is history. The clay is a very fine greenish gray powder. To make the mask, you’ll need a plastic bag, a spoon, and a cap of water~1 tablespoon…
