Hair colour to dress – 5 hacks to be party ready this Diwali

In India, Diwali is synonymous with pujas, family gatherings and parties with near and dear ones. Diwali parties are inevitable and if you are sitting at home, then you are truly missing out on the most exciting part of the year. I understand, doing latest hair colour, putting perfect makeup and making a hairstyle seems tedious and never-ending. But we have got some simple hacks for you – some of which can even be done ahead of your Diwali party schedule. This will significantly cut down on the time spent in getting ready for the Diwali party, and you can stress less and snooze more.


1. Glowing Skin:

To get a flawless makeup look, even skin tone and texture is required. Having glowing skin makes getting ready quicker as less time is spent covering and concealing. The easiest way to get glowing skin is by putting the face over a steaming bowl of water for 5 minutes. This will enlarge your pores. After this put a face mask appropriate for your skin type – hydrating mask for dry skin, a charcoal mask for acne-prone skin and an aloe vera mask for sensitive skin. In the end, apply ice to tighten the pores. Lack of hydration can make our skin look dull and dry. So use a face mist through the day. For an instant glow before the party, you can invest in sheet masks too. Use them before the party and it will add that glow to your face. Glowing skin will make you look party-ready always and just a little kajal and bold lipstick will do your job.

2. Shiny Hair:

Like skin, shiny hair can do wonders to your look. Regular trimming of hair keeps the split ends away and makes your hair healthy. Also, a fresh hair cut with the latest hair colour has the same effect as a dramatic hairstyle. An easy way is to use latest hair colour for grey hair and look party-ready always. I trust Godrej Expert Rich Crème hair colour. It is ammonia free hair colour to cover grey hair and its unique formula has 10x aloe vera which makes hair soft and shiny. 4-5 days before Diwali, plan to do hair colour at home. This will allow the latest hair colour to settle and if you don’t like the look or have uncovered greys, then you would have time to fix your hair colour. Godrej Expert Rich Crème hair colour is the best hair colour for women as it is really easy to use. Just do proper sectioning and you will get 100% coverage in the 1st attempt of hair colour at home. Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair Colour comes in 5 beautiful shades – Natural black, black-brown, natural brown, dark brown and burgundy. All the shades of this latest hair colour go perfectly with the ethnic look for Diwali. Choose a shade that compliments your skin tone and highlights your features. Following a hair colour trend might be confusing for many. So you can safely choose natural black hair colour to cover grey hair.

Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair Colour comes in pre-measured single-use sachets. You just need to cut them open in a mixing bowl and apply it to your hair. If you have long tresses, then get 2 sachets of the same shade of Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair Colour. Rinse off the no ammonia hair colour after 30 minutes and you will get luscious hair in no time. Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair colour allows you to do professional hair colour at home.

3. Easy hairstyles for Diwali:

If you have done hair colour at home and used the best hair colour for women, it will cover your greys and amp up your look. With the shine of your hair, a hairstyle as simple as a high ponytail will make you the shining diva of the party. Natural brown shade or burgundy shade of the Godrej Expert Rich Crème hair colour adds volume to the ponytail. It is the best hairstyle to manage amidst sweat and keeping safe from lighting diyas and bursting crackers. I call it a no-stress, no-mess hairstyle that will grab a lot of eyeballs at the Diwali party. For ladies with long hair, a twisted side braid is equally good and can never go wrong.

4. Easy Make-up:

Let’s accept it, busy moms in the house have no time to open various palettes and sit down for elaborate make-up. So for ladies running short of time, focus on your eyes. Your eyes have the power to do all the talking and the right eye makeup will add glitz to your look. A bold Kajal, winged eyeliner and warm-toned brown eye shadow will make your eyes stand out. The latest hair colour, a simple hairstyle and highlighted eyes will make your face appear brighter and strikingly beautiful. Wearing a little mascara or putting on fake eyelashes will add the final touch to your eyes. They instantly lift up your eyes and make you look gorgeous. Using brown coloured eyelashes to match your brown hair colour trend can also add some drama to your Diwali look. Compliment your look with lipstick. Remember, to use contrasting tones for eyes and lips to shift the focus to your best features. Bold eye makeup with subtle lipstick or bold lipstick with simple eye make-up will make your features stand out and will up your beauty game for the Diwali party.

5. Classy outfit and basic footwear:

Diwali is all about being traditional. And traditional is not limited and restricted to saree and lehengas. A floor-length Anarkali in flowy fabric like chiffon or georgette with embroidery and embellishments will make you look traditional yet modern. Anarkali is a really versatile outfit. It can be paired with a dupatta for a traditional look or worn without churidar for a trendy and chic look. It is also a comfortable outfit to carry on with all the preparations and the hustle-bustle of the festivities. All in all, Anarkali is a favourite for all the ladies and a must-have in the festive wardrobe. But your look is incomplete without the right footwear. Choosing footwear can be tricky but just like an outfit choose footwear that is versatile. Multi-coloured flats add vibrant colours to the festivals of lights and complement all the outfits. Whether you choose to wear saree, lehenga, kurta, Anarkali or even indo-western, flats will help you look elegant and chic. Being comfortable is the key in festivities, so choose your style accordingly.
