Choosing the Right Necklace for Different Necklines

Choosing the right necklace for an outfit is an ultimate must-do when aiming for a stylish look. If this is done wrongly it can turn your outfit into a big Nah!

First things first, you  have to know the different types of necklines and what necklaces go best with them. Some necklines are very versatile, so almost any necklace works well with them, while others suit only one or two specific styles.

The V neck line:

A necklace that mimic’s the v neck of the dress works well. Go for a piece that ends somewhere mid chest, and avoid things that would drape into you cleavage. A shorter necklace would keep attention off your chest and more on your face, and the necklace won’t get lost in your shirt.

Wearing Heels to Work

How to wear high heels to work without loosing it

Wearing high heels makes women walk in a more feminine way but how do you this for the whole day?

Before we begin, note this! Make sure you buy and wear shoes that are the right size. Have your feet measured when you’re buying shoes, for width and for length as well.

1. Heels and Soles

If you are required to stand all day at work and you choose to wear heels, then go for thicker/blocked heeled shoes such as wedges. They  are a great comfortable option. They provide more cushioning than the thin soles/ stilettos. Likewise, opt for thinker soles/platforms. They cushion your soles and take some of the pressure off when you walk.

2 . Have a healthy routine 

For those ladies who sit at a desk all day, you can just kick off your shoes and allow your feet breathe & rest. Put them back on when you have to stand or move around. Taking put time to stretch your toes and ankle is very healthy and relives some of the pain. Stick with lower heels as they tend to be more comfortable and cause less pain.

Modern Muslim Bridal Dresses

We have come across a lot of stylish Muslim brides and that prompted this article. Most people believe that a Muslim bride cannot be stylish; well we beg to differ.

A Muslim wedding ceremony is called a Nikah. A Muslim wedding dress is basically based on personal preference and style. The only clear rule regarding Islamic wedding dresses is that they have to adhere to religious customs; this means that women are not allowed to show their legs, torsos, shoulders or arms.

There is no specific colour that is off-limits for a woman involved in a Muslim marriage ceremony. Brides are free to choose gowns in whatever shade they please, though many modern women choose to stick with white or light shades.

 

Henna, Mehndi (Indian) or Lali (Hausa) which it is a form of beautification is applied on the feet and hands of the bride and her friends to make them stand out. Finding a modest yet stylish  white wedding gown may prove difficult, but see a lovely collection that you might like

How to Apply Foundation Flawlessly

Foundation is the base of our make-up, like the name applies is the anchor in make-up. When your foundation goes wrong, there is no hiding it, it’s out there for everyone to see. The problem most of have is finding the right shade for our face but this can be remedied by seeking professional help. Once this is settled, applying it flawlessly is next.

  2. Mix and match: Some areas of our faces are oiler than the others, so you can use a mate foundation on the oiler parts like your t-zone area and a dewier one for the rest of the face.
  3. Prevent creasing: Creasing is almost inevitable, but it can be minimized. If you use an eye cream, blot out the excess eye cream with tissue paper before applying foundation.
  4. Colour correct darker skin tones: Darker regions of your face can be propped with a corrector to prevent dark purplish tones around the mouth and under the eyes.

Wearing the Colour Green to Work

Green represents the planet earth. It is calming and refreshing. It symbolizes nature, representing life, growth, and renewal. Despite all these qualities we tend to run away from green probably because it’s the colour of our national flag, but really this colour should be embraced because it’s a beautiful colour.

Going green all over might seem a little unsuitable for a work place but this depends on your kind of work environment. If yours wouldn’t allow this you can incorporate this colour into your work ensemble by adding touches of it to your work outfit. Are we ready to be patriotic to our country?

How To’s: Fixing False Lashes

When it comes to makeup, we all know that the eye is a feature that can make your face POP. Fixing lashes can totally transform your appearance and make look glamours. Celebrities wear them a lot on the red carpet or on a daily basis, and I know we wouldn’t mind looking like one of them.

Most of us shy away from it because of how some girls have abused false lashes by letting a non-professional fix it or by using the wrong tools which as we know doesn’t end well. Because we can see the glue sticking out or they use lashes that are too full. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be like that.

There are basically two types of false lashes; the cluster/single lash and the strip lash.

The Cluster Lash

They are fixed individually on your natural eyelash using glue until a desired volume is attained. They last for a week or two and require a professional to fix them.

The Strip Lash

They are a “wear and take out” kind of lashes. They are removed right after use. The pros of this kind of lashes are that it is reusable and can be fixed by you.
