Unique Ways to Style Your Sneakers


Although we love our towering platforms and high-heeled pumps, there’s no denying that we’ll always have a weak spot for sneakers. Who wouldn’t love them when they’re totally on trend, they’re ideal for creating a cool vibe, and they look amazing with just about anything you pair them with. That said, we’ve listed down some of the easy ways on how you can take your sneaker styling up a notch.


  1. Think About Going Monochrome

Loved by stylish stars, bloggers, and fashion editors alike, the black and white running shoes fit just as well with the latest designer clothes with spandex leggings. It might seem counterintuitive, but the best way to style this pair is to treat them the same way you treat your pair of pumps.

  1. Sport Those With Fun Colours

Apart from providing great arch support, another reason to love a pair of jogging shoes is the array of cool colours that they come in. The neon details on a basic show is what will add some fun flair to your favourite neutral coloured outfits.

  1. Wear it With Your Favourite Tough Skirt

While it sounds like a style equation that only your 12-year old self would wear, the technique in sporting a skirt-and-sneakers combo relies on the textures of the pieces that will be worn. Wearing a feminine top, such as a lace crop, will help in balancing out tough pieces like nylon sneakers and a leather mini.


  1. Try it On With Your Jumpsuit

Although there’s no denying that satin slip-ons look good when paired with shorts, everybody can just pull off that look. So take a step back from that pairing by wearing those kicks with your favourite dressy jumpsuit instead. You’ll be surprised as to how Instagram-worthy your OOTD will be.

  1. Pair it Up With a Dress

Want to give your favourite printed shift dress some style overhaul? Then consider pairing it up with a colour-coordinating kicks. This getup will surely create a lovely contrast with your accessories and ladylike topknot.

  1. Remember the Classics

Whether you like a worn-out or a clean pair, canvas shoes have been a wardrobe staple for decades. Since they come in pretty much any colour conceivable, all you need is a little creativity to make these kicks completely your own.

Wearing your sneakers in a more stylish way is actually easy. All you’ve got to do is let your creativity flow with your outfit choices, and you’re set to achieve those blogger-like getups that you’ve always wanted to try.


How to Choose the Perfect Makeup Palette

Makeups should enhance and accentuate one’s features not the other way around. Many Singaporean women apply makeup whether going out to party or to work. That seems to be acceptable. What is not acceptable is not using it accordingly. Why not start by learning how to choose the perfect makeup palette? Choosing the perfect makeup palette can make a difference at the end of the day.


You can say that you have the perfect makeup palette when your eye, cheek and lip color flatter your beauty. If not, it is time that you learn how to choose the right makeup palette. Choosing the perfect palette is also an art and science. If you religiously learn it, you will surely be successful. Here are some things that you need to consider in terms of choosing the perfect palette:

Skin Undertones

The first lesson that you need to consider is how to determine your skin tone. It is imperative that you determine your skin tone first because it will serve as your basis when choosing the perfect makeup palette. When determining your skin tone, you should stand in a well-lit room. Remember to remove your makeup. In the mirror, try examining your cheeks closely.

If you have peach-colored skin, the best undertone includes orange or gold. This means that you will look good using earthy hues like green, brown, gold and coral. If you have pink-colored skin, the best undertone includes violet or blue. You should consider colors like purple, pinks and pastel; burgundies and reds are also best colors for you.

Skin Tone

Now that you know your color, it should confine and refine your search. Stop thinking about other colors. If you have very fair skin, you have to use dark colors carefully. Save dark colors for special evening occasions. For dark-skinned girls, choose bright or light hues. If you are in the middle, you only need to mix dark and light hues.


Balancing Hues

Now for the final touch, you need to balance hues. You should be careful not to apply bold or dark shades to cheeks, eyes and lips at the same time. Just identify a starting point (one area of your face) and apply dark colors keeping the rest in neutral or light hues.

Buying for makeup is not easy with the coming of formulations and different palette but it doesn’t mean that you have to stop applying makeup. Just believe in the power of enough makeup. The point of this article is to help you avoid overdoing it and making other mistakes.


Beauty Tips for a Beach Holiday

Summer is almost upon us. Beach outings are just in the corner. One cannot just resist the lure of the sea and the breeze. The feel of the sand while frolicking under the sun is the best experience. There’s a stretch of beach here in Singapore but if you want to go overseas, there is no problem with that. Make arrangements as soon as possible.

  • Packing the essentials: It is crucial that you pack light. You can be successful if you only pack essentials. The good news is that there are multi-functional skincare products that you can consider. These multi-functional skincare products will surely make your holiday simple and fuss-free. For example, look for a sunscreen that can be used as a makeup base as well or a multi-purpose pencil that can be used on the eyelids, cheeks and lips.


  • Exfoliating your skin: It is a futile attempt to cover the blemishes and make it disappear. You already know when the vacation is and as early as possibly, work on exfoliating skin.

  • Prepping your skin: To help the skin against sun exposure, you have to be particular about prepping it before, during and after sun exposure. Before exposure, apply sunscreen and moisturizer with at least SPF 30. During your exposure, reapply sunscreen every now and then. After exposure, remember to apply moisturizer to keep the skin from drying.


  • Combatting sunburn: Beaches are all fun and all but when the reality hits, it can be a painful one. Sunburn should be countered. Sunburn huts and it can inflict damage to your skin. You should nurse skin back to health after the beach holiday. You can do this by considering cleansing products and wearing light cotton clothes to avoid friction. Your goal here is to evade more aggravation of the sunburn.
