Plus, Special Glimpses of Durga Puja
“You can take a bong out of Bengal, but you can never take out Bengal from a bong’s heart!”
And most of you must be well aware of what a grand celebration we Bengalis have for Durga Puja. The few days of massive festivities that Bengal has, surpasses the grandeur and opulence of every other festival across the country. Food, fashion, beauty, people from every aspect of life become vibrant and radiate the enthusiasm of this occasion. Today I am sharing a few fashion and beauty tips to look your stunning best during Durga Puja.
• Kohl Rimmed Eyes
Bengali girls are famed for their beautiful eyes. Take up your beauty another notch higher with perfectly kohl rimmed eyes. If you are expert enough, create a smoldering smokey eye look that can catch the attention of all the cute guys out there. ;). Do consult IMBB for the smokey eye tutorials.
• Soft Shades for The Day
No matter how much you might want to create an impression, stay away from dazzling ruby red on Ashtami morning. Wear nude colors that works for your skin tone or a coral-pink shade which reflects your inner Goddess.
• Go Bold for The Night Out
You must have plans for the whole night pandal hopping. Right? Reserve your bold lippies for evenings and nights where you can create major lip drama. Colors like red, mauve and berry would aid in creating statement lips.
• Jewel Tones
• Shimmer Saga
You want some drool-worthy pics for Instagram; should you go for OTT shimmery makeup? Absolutely not! Balance shimmery looks focusing on one aspect (either eyes or cheeks or lips), or otherwise you might end up looking like a disco ball.
• Waterproof Makeup
Makeup wise, choose waterproof products. Surely as an IMBBan it wouldn’t be a difficulty. Waterproof makeup ensures that come rain or shine, you are ready to rock.
• Use Products as per Your Skin Type
Not all products are meant for everyone. Find your HG products according to your individual skin type and concerns, and stick to those. Don’t experiment now.
• Skin Care Routine
Do not overlook the CTM routine, every IMBBan swears by it. Also, do not go to bed with your makeup on, however log tired you are. It is a cardinal sin.
• Accessorize it Right
With your newest outfits, choose complementary accessories. Your accessories speak volumes about your personality and fashion sense. If in doubt, take a cue out from Rati mam’s lookbook.
• A Hairy Tale
Properly done hair can save the hassles of frequent combing before photoshoots. Keep your mane clean and conditioned and try out simple hairstyles to change your look every day.
• Don’t Compromise on Comfort
Most importantly, your comfort should be your priority. Ditch your heels for flats if that suits you, don’t overlook your problem areas while trying to dress up. Enhance and play up on your assets.
I thought of sharing a few Durga Puja pics (clicked by my sister cum friend Debolina) with the IMBB beauties that capture the quintessential spirit of life in Kolkata during this time. The city is at her glorious best during this time with the myriad hues dotting every nook and cranny of the city, sounds of dhaak (a musical instrument) echoing across the lanes and streets and the sweet fragrance of shiuli flowers welcoming Durga Maa. There is no way you can be immune to the joyous chaos and ecstasy of the city.
Stay beautiful. Enjoy!
