I love high heels! So much so that I own over a 100 pairs.The second piece of woman’s apparel I ever wore were my mother’s high heels (after I slipped on a pair of her nylons). Since that initial crossdressing experience, I almost always wear high hee…

How to Walk in Heels: Lessons from the Stiletto Whisperer

How to Walk in Heels: Lessons from the Stiletto Whisperer

By | Fashion – Mon, Jul 22, 2013 6:08 PM EDT

Perhaps this model needs to take a high heel walking class with the Stiletto Whisperer?  High heels can be a quick and easy way to dress up your outfit, but Victor Chu, a former footwear designer in New York dubbed the “stiletto whisperer” claims most women are wearing them incorrectly. “Women think heels are sexy because men think they’re sexy,” he told the New York Post. “But, you see a woman wear this pained expression and shuffle. I’ve seen guys giggle at them – it’s not sexy. Bottom line is, you need to be fit to walk in heels with stability.” 

 Chu once developed comfortable shoes for Uggs and Reeboks, and teamed up with dancer CeCe Chin in 2006 to create the high-heel fitness routine, Legworks. This summer he created a series of personalized classes in New York for women to perfect their walk in their high heels. We reached out to get the inside scoop and tips on how to properly walk in high heels with minimal pain. 

 “We tell [students] to bring two pairs of heels to the class: ones you wear everyday and the ones that you want to wear,” Chu told Yahoo! Shine. The private classes start at $50, and Chu tells Shine that 60% of the class is perfecting your walk. “New York City is the capital of high heel shoes and fashion,” Chu told Yahoo! Shine. “Out of anywhere in the country, women wear heels everyday here. It’s easier for guys when they get dressed up because they just put on their dress shoes and start walking. There are essentially built in problems with heels and this is the main reason why we offer the course.” 
A recent survey released by The College of Podiatry, more than 40% of women say they suffer through the pain of wearing heels for the sake of fashion. Most women report that heels start to hurt their feet after an hour and six minutes of wear, while 20 percent say that they can feel the pain after just 10 minutes. According to researchers at the University of Portsmouth, heels can change the way the entire body moves, including the pelvis, hips, legs, knees, feet and even shoulders, to emphasize femininity. The researchers, whose study appears in the scientific journal Evolution and Human Behaviour, say men rate women wearing heels as more attractive then those wearing flat shoes.
Chu feels all types of women young and old could benefit from his classes, and that no one should be bashful about coming in. “We have a lot of overweight women who take the class, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to wear heels,” he told Shine. “It’s just a matter of adjusting the heel height and type of shoe. We don’t criticize or make anyone feel unwelcome.”

For those who can’t attend Chu’s personalized classes, the footwear expert shared five tips you can incorporate into your heel-wearing lifestyle today:
1. Make sure your heels really fit. Often we force our feet into improper shoes because we bought the wrong size or a style that isn’t comfortable or stable. “There are literally thousands of styles to choose from,” Chu advised when asked about shopping for heels. “A good fit means that it’s snug on your foot. if you have wobbling at the ankles or the fit is bad, go for more coverage around the foot like thicker straps instead of thin straps.”
2. Check your soles. Make sure that the sole of the shoe is completely flat to the floor and doesn’t tip over or wobble. “This will help to give you a lot of stability,” he said. “Avoid those shoes that have a ‘boat bottom,’ meaning it’s not completely flat to the surface of the floor.”
3. Improve your core. “It will give you tons of control when you’re walking, and that’s important for keeping your back straight and providing stability and control when walking,” said Chu.
4. Posture is everything. Remember to keep your head up high and your shoulders back.
5. Look straight ahead. When walking down the street, always be aware of what’s ahead of you at least 1/3 of the way down the block. “Look ahead, not down,” Chu said. “If you’re looking down, this means your shoes don’t fit well. There shouldn’t be anything hurting or pinching.”

Waterproof makeup for Crossdressers: Perfect for summer

If you love swimming, if you perspire heavily when you work out or if you

simply tend to shed a few tears here and there, waterproof makeup is a must when summer rolls around. Say goodbye to eye shadow caked in the creases of your eyelids, raccoon eyes caused by smudged mascara and foundation that fades.

Waterproof, water-resistant or long-wear makeup?

Long-wear makeup is formulated to last longer than regular makeup (4 to 8 hours more or even up to 24 hours) under normal conditions. It is not meant to resist sweat or immersion in water. As for water-resistant makeup, it will stay put during exercise, a hectic night on the dance floor or a dip in the pool. But if you want something that can withstand all conditions, anywhere, anytime, even under water, waterproof makeup is your best bet.
Quick tip!
Professional makeup artists recommend waterproof makeup for women who have drooping eyelids or fine lines around their mouths, as it keeps makeup from feathering and creasing.

Waterproof your look

Foundation, concealer, eye shadow, mascara and lipstick can all be waterproof or made to be. Here are some suggestions:
  • Complexion. During summer, you usually have a more even complexion and a sun-kissed glow. That’s why you can get away with masking any minor flaws with a waterproof concealer or foundation.
  • Eyes. Choose waterproof eye shadow or apply a liquid protective film over your regular eye colour to waterproof it. Finish off your eye makeup with waterproof liner and mascara.
  • Lips. Apply waterproof lip liner to your entire lip surface. Follow with clear gloss to add some shine. You can also just use waterproof lipstick.
Good to know!
If you have sensitive, reactive skin, waterproof makeup might not be suitable for you, given the extra ingredients it contains. Plus, if you have large pores, waterproof foundation might not be a good option, since it can cause some clogging.

Removing waterproof makeup

Waterproof makeup is so resistant it can sometimes be difficult to remove. To get the job done, you need the right makeup remover.
For eye makeup, you have two options: cleansing dry oil or dual-phase (oil- and water-based) remover. Oil-free makeup removers will only get rid of some of your mascara; you will probably end up wiping harder and harder and this will irritate your skin. For facial makeup, you can use regular remover. In both cases, finish off your routine with toning lotion to eliminate any oil and makeup residue.
