With Diwali just a week away, I have come up with some smart fashion and decor ideas to prep you up for this festive season. Do have a read!
1. Give A Grand Welcome
If you’re a family get together or planning to invite some guests then even plan for giving your guests a hearty welcome. For this, you can decorate your hallway with beautiful lighting fixtures in different colors. You can either place a vibrant floor rug or go for a bunch of small yet colorful lanterns made up of stained glass. You can also put a stained glass kandeel atop your dining table to give a contemporary feel.

2. The Half Sari Fashion
While lehengas, sarees and anarkalis are the expected ethnic wears for any festive season, you can add a twist to your festive fashion by opting for a graceful half sari this year. Now get rid of the hassles of draping your heavy 9-yard ensemble, instead flaunt your curves in this South Indian classic just like Deepika did in Chennai Express. You can ditch the embellished pallu this time for tulle drapes.
We have an array of gorgeous half sari designs in our collection. Each one is unique with its design and detailing.
3. A Perfect Hair Do
In order to look best this Diwali, you should prepare before hand. You can follow a simple and easy haircare routine and pamper them before the D day arrives. Here are some haircare tips – Apply mayonnaise on your hair. After one hour wash it. The protein-rich ingredients make the hair look shiny, soft and bouncy.
4. Bold Lips
Bold and dark lips are quite a rage this season. So, you can just go with the trend and paint your pout in a gorgeous shade of pomegranate. This particular color falls between burgundy and scarlet. However, do remember if you’re going for dark lips then keep the rest of your make-up clean and nude.
5. Flaunt Your Lashes
Eyes are the most significant areas in make-up. You can enhance your eyes by grooming your lashes. Apply lip balm to your lashes every night to have naturally thicker and fuller eyelashes. Do not forget to rinse them off next morning. MAC offers splendid false lashes, which can instantly enhance the beauty of your eyes. You can also try for them if you do not have thick and full eyelashes.

6. Graphic Eyes
When we’re discussing on eye makeup, how about going for graphic eyes, which became a huge hit on the Fall/Winter fashion runways?. I have already given a simple tutorial to get those eyes. If you’re focusing on eyes then go for a nude pastel shade for your pouts.
7. Hair Fixers
With such a busy schedule and playing the host for your Diwali bash, you’ll be left with little to no time for touch-up. For your hair emergencies, you should have some handy hair saviors. If you’re running out of time for shower then you can go for dry shampoo trick. Have some hair ties, hair parting comb, portable flat iron and hair serum arranged to fix your hair for the evening.
