Millions of people everywhere celebrate Diwali every year. With so many people participating in the festivities, you might worry you will blend in with the crowd.
But, there’s no need to panic. Read on to find out how to shine like a star during the Festival of Lights!
Get Good Rest Before Diwali 2018
Diwali is an exciting holiday. After all, it’s 5 days of celebration!
With all of the buzz around this time of year, you’re tempted to stay up all night to prepare for the festivities. But, we caution against that.
It’s important to be well rested in general, but it’s even more important when it comes to dazzling on Diwali 2018. When you’re well rested, you’ll look and feel your best. Get a good night’s sleep before Diwali, so that you’ll have enough energy to party!
Highlight Your Best Features with Makeup
They say the eyes are the window to the soul. But, they’re also an asset to your overall look on Diwali.
This Diwali 2018, go for a more dramatic look by accentuating your eyes. Add some gold eye-shadow to the inside corners of your eyes to give them an extra pop.
If you want to play up your lips, use a darker shade of lipstick. Or, go bold with pink lipgloss.
Get Your Hair Done
Traditionally, hair is plaited into several types of braids.
- French braids add a bit of volume and keep stray hairs away from your face
- A twisted side braid looks chic and is easy to do
- A single braid is a classic look that will never go out of style
But, if you want to stand out on Diwali, try something different. Leaving your hair down and sweeping it off to the side is a dramatic way to showcase your gorgeous hair while also showing off your makeup.
Accessorize with Jewelry
Adding bling to your outfit is an easy way to make sure you’re shining on Diwali 2018. Gold accessories go well with almost any outfit. But if you’re wearing an outfit made of silk or another shiny material, try out diamond accessories instead.
Dress to Impress
The most stressful part of choosing a look is what you’re going to wear. After all, your hair, jewelry and makeup all have to match your outfit!
It’s important to be as comfortable as possible during Diwali 2018. If you can help it, try to avoid heavy materials that might inhibit your movements or make you too warm.
