Being a student entrepreneur isn’t for the fainthearted. On top of dealing with a hectic university workload, you also have to map out operational processes, attend to customers, and reach high profit targets. 

Somehow, 20-year-old college student Miki Liuson manages to run not one, but two businesses alongside her studies at Ateneo de Manila University. But that’s not all—the BFA Information Design student is also a certified makeup artist and the Styling Head for the Company of Ateneo Dancers.

Given her background in the beauty industry, it comes as no surprise that Miki’s first business is a homegrown lip gloss brand. When she realized that the local market lacked budget-friendly lip glosses, she mixed her own formula in an attempt to bridge the gap between affordability and quality. Although initially established as a casual business for family and friends, Hypergleam’s *juicy* lippies are now local favorites among well-known makeup artists such as Jelly Eugenio, Anthea Bueno, and Miss Nate

If Hypergleam was born out of passion, Miki’s second business Hyperbling began as a source of comfort amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Upon finding old beads in her house, Miki crafted them into cute necklaces while unwinding to her favorite shows and podcasts. Ever the entrepreneur, she later on decided to sell her pieces on Instagram just for fun.

But behind that go-getter attitude and CEO mindset, Miki is just like any college student. She hates studying Philosophy, enjoys out-of-town beach trips, and hangs out with her friends at BGC.
