    Heels.. Shmeh.
    On to eyebrows. Is waxing better or plucking? Done by salon people ofcourse.
    Also my brow hairs are darker towards the middle of my forhead unlike the thinner hairs going outwards. I don't want the appearance of short little brows. Yucky. I usually take care of my eyebrows by myself, they look fine but not like everyone else's eyebrows.. Literally. Except for the occasional girl that's not so girly, every girl that I have seen has pretty eyebrows.

    I'm not so great in heels, but the wider the heel, the easier it is. Maybe start with clogs? Or low heel? Or even boots with a heel?

    You need to spend a month with 1 inch, then a month with 2 inch and then a month with 3 inch heels. Over that? It isn't good for your back, so save them for special occasions.

    Really you can't be taught per se how to walk in heels. It just.. happens. But I will say that when going up stairs, I generally just go up on my toes. Down is a little more complicated... [​IMG]

    I don't think you're too tall for heels. My sister is 5'7" and she wears them. The two of us just bought matching shoes with @ 2 1/2 inch heels, and she walks fine in them. She's the type who doesn't really like heels too much. You can get smaller heels so they don't make you too much taller in appearance.

    However, if you think the heels may be too much, they make pretty flats -- one of my friends who is shorter than me (I'm 5'2") wears them all the time.

    ETA -- Don't try those spiky heels. Been there, done that. All that happens is you sink into the dirt... and feel unstable on any surface. Squarish or wedge heels are great.

    Quote:Practice!!!!! It isn't as hard as it looks. Get the shoes you want to wear and wear them around the house for a while until you get comfortable w/ them. Getting used to walking isn't as hard as getting used to the discomfort. (but it's all worth it for that killer pair of heels)

    I've worn ankle boots before and they killed my feet. So pretty but so much pain.

    Some heels are great on your feet, others will kill them [​IMG] Like others have said you really can't be taught. It just takes practiced. I will say tho when going down steps I place my foot sideways ( if that makes sense [​IMG] ) So my foot is placed more horizontally. You don't want to be going down the steps and putting your weight on the heels. Like Lothiriel said, when going up the steps I place my weight on my toes. Start out with a thick heel, not a Stiletto heel. I still have a hard time walking in Stiletto heel. Wish I could be more help [​IMG]

    I'm going to be no help at all with my post, so just scroll on past without reading it. [​IMG]

    My girly side is demonstrated with nice earrings, pretty rings, and lots of skinny bangles when I dress up. I have a couple of nice pairs of pumps and two pairs of actual high heels I should never have purchased. I sure wanted to wear something like 'em, but ONE special occasion in one pair of them was enough. Comfy shoes on the way, changed into the high heels upon arrival, and I was far too worried about my balance and if I would step on something uneven and go down, all pretty, of course. I had practiced in them, but it wasn't worth practicing to wear them routinely.

    Jewelry. THAT'S girly!
