“Basketball Wife” Malaysia Pargo offers style, beauty and hair tips
Reality TV beauty Malaysia Pargo revels in the finer things but also doesn’t mind sharing the wealth with fans. The Malaysia’s Closet head is currently peddling gently used designer handbags, chic pumps and body skimming dresses for deeply discounted prices online.
Below, the “Basketball Wife” with scene stealing style, dishes on the goods for sale in her closet as well as her mane and makeup requisites that keep her camera ready.
What is your skincare routine?
I use Cetaphil products; you can get it from Target and it’s not expensive. I use a daily cleanser for my face and then I use their moisturizer. The trick is that whenever you wash your face, you should moisturize it again.
What are some of your makeup essentials?
On a daily basis I try not to cake my face up with makeup. I think that’s the biggest trick; you don’t wanna clog your pores. I use MAC mineral powder called Skin Finish natural. I’ll put my SPF moisturizer on and then use a clean foundation brush to put the mineral powder all over my face for an even glow.
What type of hair extensions do you prefer for your signature look?
It depends on what style I’m going for. Right now I have Indian hair in and it’s super silky, black and straight down the middle [part]. It’s 24 inch Black Label hair from Glam Luxe. It’s really nice and easy to straighten, so you can look cute and go.
What can you tell fans to look for in quality extensions?
Now that I’m definitely a hair connoisseur, [laughs] what I look for is hair that’s not processed. If there’s a process to it, the hair’s not gonna shine the way you want it to and it’s not gonna straighten the way you want it to. Some processed hair may work but for the most part extra virgin hair lasts longer. If you want to color it, it holds color and it doesn’t tangle. I like unprocessed hair.
Tell me about your Malaysia’s Closet online boutique.
I moved back to California and I just had an overload of things. I’m really a homebody, which people really don’t know; I love to be home in Uggs and sweats. [And while] I do like to get dressed, I figured if I cleaned out my closet and I sold the things to some of the ladies that may want it for lesser price [than retail], then we’re doing each other a favor. I have a lot of things that I don’t wear anymore so why not share it with others? I would want them to get the same joy and excitement out of it that I did the same piece.
What are some of your favorite fashion brands?
If I’m really trying to look sexy on a date I would say that Alexander McQueen because the dresses cling to my shape. I would probably throw on a leather coat with it or a blazer from BCBG and some Giuseppe pumps or Christian Louboutins.
What would you like to say to your “Basketball Wives L.A.” fans?
Keep tuning in! Thank you for all of your support; I love you dearly. You guys keep me grounded and keep me on my toes so thanks for holding me accountable. Make sure you go to 3Beats jewelry at Los Angeles’ Beverly Wilshire hotel, in Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan hotel and in Charlotte at the Ritz Carlton.
