What Be For Beauty Wore on Diwali 2016

Hey, guys! It’s Monday morning, and a fabulous week has just come to an end. Every year, I tell myself to enjoy Diwali to the fullest and this month I actually did it. After celebrating Ganpati for 10 days, enjoying and fasting on Navratri, I enjoyed the days before Diwali just like I did when we were little–sans the bijli bomb. I attended melas (Sundar Nagar mela and Blind School Mela were the highlights), attended pop-ups and exhibitions. I shopped for puja, the house while, Mom, had already finished getting the house ready for dinner. Vigorous cleaning sessions, god knows how many  maintenance workers made it to our house.

Our parties started early: I attended 3 back to back functions. Here is my makeup for the first day!

This kurta-churidar was a combination of pink and peach and my Faces Ultime Pro Crayon in ENVY went perfectly with it. I think I also did a good job of my eyeliner: thanks, KIKO!

Day 2 of Diwali was spent and embraced in white, one of my favorite colors that I don’t get to embrace formally. Since most of these card parties started in the day, I could wear white! I decided to wear this beautiful slit kurta (I bought this last year) with plain palazzo pants, earrings from GK and heels from Clarks. My FACES Ultime Pro Creme in Mochalicious helped give it a classy touch with shades of brown.

Come Saturday, and it was the last Diwali party: I had lost more 10 rupee notes than I could count. So I decided to embrace the Delhi girl in me and wore a BIBA Anarkali Kurta with a contrast dupatta in orange. Instead of wearing the same shade churidar, I wore gold-rust trousers I’d bought from GK. Since my outfit was very heavy for my taste, I wore Polki studs and wore AVON Lipstick in Hot Pink.

Since Mom and I had spent almost the entire week out, we skipped our annual ritual of going out for lunch. All in all, it was a great Diwali day: with lights, diya’s, good food and a great Lakshmi puja.

And while that happened in India, we had a small celebration here as well in Switzerland. I decorated the house with lights and diyas. We had a sumptuous vegetarian meal and celebrated the day with close friends and family. It was quite cold outside and hence the day was spent indoors.

I wore one of khadi silk kurtas which was apt for the season and the occasion. Make up was minimal – a light lakme foundation, a maybelline kohl on the eye lid and a bronzer on the lips from Dhania Kosmetics.
