Ethnic Indian Look This Diwali

Diwali is the time of the year, besides Karwachauth that I bring out all my traditional finery. This year, on an impulse I decided to wear a sari. I had picked out this silk Paithani many years ago and finally opened it up this year in Diwali. Since this was an impulse, I did not have a matching maroon or green blouse ready so paired it with a dull golden blouse. This blouse has been so handy whenever I want to wear saris on an impulse (which generally is the case with me) that I am now thinking of getting a silver, black and multi coloured brocade one a well!

Ethnic Indian Look

Our Diwali celebration was simple. As always, we were going to do the pooja at home and light a few sparklers. So I kept the makeup simple and quick. A wash of gold eye shadow by Hard Candy, a big round bindi, sindoor and lipstick. Ah, the lipstick. When I was looking for the best lip colour to go with the sari, I realised I did not have a single maroon one. I ended up mixing a blue based red with a brown red brick colour to come up with a shade that went with the look. It is not a true match but I think it goes. What do you guys think?

    I did wear a saree last year. This year was a pretty dull affair compared to your resplendence here! 🙂
