Seems like many style tips work better in theory than in practice. I know that pointy shoes will visually elongate my leg line, but most of them just make me feel like an elf. I know that eyeshadow should make my peepers look large and luminous, but even when I get my makeup professionally done it never seems to amount to much. I know that pencil skirts are supposed to be an absolute classic, but I feel awkward and un-lovely in them myself.
Which style or beauty advice have you heard that sounds good in theory, but flops in practice for you personally?
