Festive Fashion - Part 1
Welcome back to my fashion page and thanks a ton for returning!!
This one is a quick post as many of my friends asked me about my ‘Ganesh Chaturthi Look’.
Hey! But before that take a moment and realise, festive season 2018 has already dawned upon us with Bappa gracing our abodes and hearts. Besides food, family and friends, this is also the time for exquisite fashion. So put your best foot forward and look your best this season, unapologetically be yourself. This is the time for positive vibes and even if you are in pain, have faith that great surprises are in store. As I always mention, external façade will fade, what will remain are relationships, smiles and accomplishments. And one more thing, promise to kill the judgemental self within you and enjoy the euphoria with an open mind.
Now straight to the look, which is so typically bong, and I love it.
Dress details: I have worn a black linen saree, with orange border on one side and fuchsia on the other side, the ‘pallu’ too has the same colours. This contrast itself is like a promise for vibrancy. However this is not pure linen, it has some cotton mix. I had bought it from an online store called, https://www.roopkathaweb.com/ last year during Durga Puja. The feel of the weave is very comfortable and laid back. I have teamed this exquisite yard wonder with a ‘Kalamkari printed cotton blouse’. My sister had gifted me the fabric which I got stitched in the most conventional and elegant style. The beauty of Kalamkari print is that, it goes well with a range of sarees and adds on to its charishma. I am wearing an oxidised jhumka and statement neckpiece from Jaypore.
Face details: I am super excited, for this time I have pancaked my face a bit and was quite thrilled with the way things turned out. I have applied a base for coverage of undereye circles. Applied some Mac bronzing powder and Sephora Sweet on you blush. For eye shadow, I used matte brown shade from Maybelline Nude pallete, and heavy kajol. First I lined the lower line with deep black kajol from Lakme Iconic, then just below black line I put classic brown colour, again from Lakme Iconic. Then I have smudged the colours for that smoky look. I mixed colours on my lip as well, Coffee brown from Maybelline nude collection and a vibrant orange from Mac. I completed my look with that big, round red bindi.
Hope you liked my look. Do create your own and share with me.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi, Ganpati Bappa Morya!!
