India’s most celebrated and awaited festival Diwali is just round the corner and the parties have started in full swing! We tend to finalize our wardrobe and accessories but hardly notice the trends for makeup and hair. Worry not…I shall help you stay up to date and trendy with your look.
First of, let us discuss the trend in garments and accessories. The good news in this department is that there is something for everyone! While some designers are going gaga over bright colors, others want to keep it subtle and sophisticated. One thing that is common among all of India’s best designers is that the emphasis on the silhouette.(JJ Vallaya creation below)
Keep the lines clean and wear clothes matching your body type. For the tall and slender there are beautiful kitted long kurtis with pallazos and for the petite ladies there is lovely lehengas in different styles. Sarees with velvet pallas are big this season as well (Sabyasachi creation below).
To compliment these lovely outfits one must keep in mind the makeup and hair. The makeup trend for this season is mostly very classic and elegant. Lets see how we can look absolutely gorgeous this season
Face: a good skin care regime will help you in achieving flawless skin, which never goes out of fashion. Heavy caked up look is an absolute no no. Stick to tinted moisturizers and foundations that give medium to light coverage and focus on a natural look for the face.
Cheeks: a light blush just on the apple of the cheek is sufficient to give you a healthy happy glow. Peach and strawberry pinks are still hot this season.
Eyes: If you are adventurous and like to draw attention then smoky is the way to go. keep in mind that brown smoky is much more popular this season. One can active a smoky look in any color so go ahead and try shades of purple, green or blue to look dazzling. For the sophiticates I suggest a base color or nude eye shadow with little sheen and a clean eye liner. The Mascara needs to be given more attention in this case. False lashes are hugely popular this season and go very well with most eye shapes. Just check the length and width of your eyes vis a vis the lashes before buying them.

Lips: the focus this season is mainly on the lips and the colors that are selling like hot cakes are maroons, reds, plums in matte finish. I’m sorry but the neon shades are passé. apply a lip balm at night to make the lips soft and apply these bold and beautiful shades.

Hair: It is all about braids and messy buns this time around. Complicated braids are in demand and look fab on anyone. With minimum effort one can make lovely braids and accessorize with fresh flowers. The hair is mostly tied this season with soft curls around the face. People who like to part their hair from the middle are lucky because this is one trend that has seen a comeback after ages and all celebrities are going for it. Part your hair from the middle and make a neat bun and accessorize with flowers. Metal accessories are again out of the window.
So i hope you got some helpful information. would love your feedback and other tips if you would like to share on my blog.
Have a safe, prosperous and Happy Diwali!!
