Hi Hannah. I’ve taken to dressing up and have been out a few times in low public areas. I don’t want to go down the road of shaving my legs or arms yet.On those days I did go out I wore black stockings.Now with the warmer weather here, what would be best thing to do? I could wear jeans but sometimes it’s too hot for those. I have got a few dresses but would I need to wear something to cover my legs. Would I have to stick to stockings or tights? Also, I’m struggling to get my eyes right, probably due to still having a shaky hand. Any tips?
When it comes to makeup, the only thing you can do to overcome a shaky hand is practice, practice, practice. When I was learning eyeliner my lines were usually shaky and smudgy but the more I did it the more progress I made. Don’t practice right before you go out, practice when you have time to do your makeup, wash it off, and try again. A trick I learned when I was first doing eyeliner was drawing small dots on my eyelid and then connecting the dots to make the line. Makeup tutorials can help, but it all comes down to practice and learning through repetition.
I always, always, always wear stockings or tights when I go out, no matter how hot it is. I wear stockings because they help even out my skin color and well, because I love the way a stocking looks. I tend to wear brighter colors, or floral patterns in the summer so nude stockings and tights tend to look better with what I am wearing compared to black stockings. If you aren’t ready or able to shave your legs you may want to consider wearing two pairs of stockings to help hide your leg hair. But just because it’s summer it doesn’t mean I’ll avoid black stockings. If the dress or occasion pairs better with black, then I’ll go with black, no matter the season. I tend to wear black stockings with skirts for some reason.
And one more thing, you can do what you want, but I never wear non-nude stockings or tights with open toe heels. I think you can get (barely) get away with nude stockings (and fishnets) with open toe heels but anything else looks a little tacky.
If it’s too hot for jeans, have you considered leggings? Leggings are super cute and super femme and can be paired with a cute top, certain dresses, or a casual t-shirt. The versatility of leggings is a-maz-ing.
Have a question for me? Oh yes you do. Ask me here!
