Over 50 DIY Bindi Designs

Over 50 DIY Bindi Designs

During my college days my bindi designs were pretty popular as I used to draw my own new designs everyday. Over a period of time [don't know how] I stopped wearing bindis and I had almost forgotten that I used to sport so many different bindis in the past !!! When I was keeping Bindi for Neya it actually came to my mind and I thought I should share few of those designs to you ladies here at IMBB.

I have drawn a few designs in a paper to show it you.

You can use any eyeliner to draw it or Lakme Eyeartist will also help a lot. All the designs I have drawn here are simple and easy ones, so do try it and let me know your experience. To make it more interesting you can even try adding colors to these bindis. We get liquid colours in the shops especially for bindis which can be used to add colors.

Here are few simple easy strokes.

I have mostly used lines than curves as it is more easy to draw lines in the forehead. I have also enlarged the designs for better clarity, so the size of these bindis can be altered according to how broad or narrow your forehead is. I always prefer small ones so I make sure I draw very small and short lines when I draw these designs. While trying it for the first time, just keep a cotton swab dipped in oil with u, so that any mistakes can be corrected immediately. Everything comes over practice, so as you keep practicing you do not need any cotton swab by your side :)

Mathematical symbols can also be tried and trust me it looks cool and chic.

The second line shows how the design can be developed into a bigger or more complex one. These designs can also be used individually or clubbed together and drawn as a bigger bindi as shown in the 2nd row last. Both ways it is easy and look good too.

The third line again shows how one simple < and > symbols can be used in different ways according to one’s choice and style. I used to wear all long and big bindis when I wear saree and the small and tiny ones when I wear salwars and tees. The size of my bindi goes smaller as my clothes go from traditional to western ;) Sometimes it even becomes invisible and my granny keeps shouting at me ;)

The next set of designs are again easy and simple strokes but a mix of curves and lines.

First line shows designs with the base as alphabet ‘Y’ and the second line shows designs with base as diamond shape. First row last and Second row last designs are usually worn while I am rushing in the mornings to catch my college bus. Easiest and simplest at the same time attracts attention.

The third and fourth lines are again simple floral design and arrow design respectively. One my friend was crazy about floral design and she kept insisting me on trying all new floral designs. I have forgotten almost most of it now :( Wish I had noted it down in a paper then, but I am sure I would have lost that paper by now.

Finally a cute smiley that would bring a smile to anyone who has a conversation with us. A very cute design that was loved by everyone around me. ‘:)’ This way also the smiley would work.

So ladies, hope you all liked this post. Eagerly waiting for your feedback.

What a creative outlet! Wonderful article Aarthi. I love the mathematical signs & the smiley face best. They’re super cute & will make anyone who looks at you smile. Two thumbs up for this unique article :yes: :yes:

I had gone through a phase of buying LOTS of bindis a few years ago. I kept them in such good condition that I still have all of them. But I rarely use them now. Must start again.

Hey Aarthi.. u make me nostalgic..A friend of mine & me used to experiment with liner bindis so much that our bindis depicted our moods…a smiley fr happy..a frown fr anger (very artistically drawn infact so it doesnt easily show ;) ), & so on. I remember once we were homesick & drew a gal walking wid a suitcase in hand goin home :P .Angels with halo, icecreams, candies…the list goes on!! Ain’t it just soo much fun!! :)

Meera April 7, 2012 at 11:04 pm
