Karwa Chauth is here, and it’s time for you to look your best, stunning and picture perfect for this special occasion. It’s always a good idea to get essential beauty treatments like waxing, threading, manicure, pedicure and facial well in advance to avoid last-minute chaos.

Get henna designs on the hands a day or two before the festival for best results and perfect darker colour. After applying henna, keep it on for an hour or two, dabbing with lemon juice and sugar mixture from time to time. The henna paste should be removed by scraping it off. Apply oil and avoid washing the hands with soap and water for a few hours. After the colour has developed, avoid working with water as much as possible.

Cosmetic treatments, new hair colour or style, or nail art, should be tried on a few days earlier. This will give you ample time for rectification in case of goof-ups. Also, spare enough time for hairdo, makeup, and sari-draping.

Cleansing

  • Use home remedies which include aloe vera, honey or green tea. You can also use milk while taking bath.
  • Mix a mask at home with two teaspoons wheat bran (choker), one teaspoon each of ground almonds (badam) curd, honey and rose water. Mix everything together into a paste and apply on the face, avoiding the lips and area around the eyes. Wash it off after 20 minutes.
  • For a ‘quick fix’ pack, mix honey with egg white and apply it on the face. Wash off with water after 20 minutes.
  • For dull and tired eyes, dip cotton wool pads in rose water and use as eye pads over closed lids. It helps to remove fatigue and brighten the eyes.
  • Mix one teaspoon each of lemon juice and honey with one egg. Beat them together well. Massage the mixture lightly into the scalp. Then wrap the hair in a hot towel for 20 minutes, before washing the hair.
  • For oily hair, have a hair rinse after shampoo. A tea water and lemon rinse will add shine to the hair. Boil used tea leaves again in enough water. After boiling, you should have about 5 to 6 cups of tea-water. Cool and strain it. Then add the juice of a lemon and use it as a last rinse after shampoo.

Makeup

First, cleanse the skin and apply a liquid moisturiser. For oily skin, apply an astringent lotion. Cover blemishes with a concealer, before applying foundation. To conceal acne pits (tiny holes in the skin, left by acne), take a little concealer at the end of a cotton bud and fill the pit with it. Then apply foundation.

  • Try gold foundation for this special occasion. Dot the face with it and blend with a moist sponge. Lightly dust golden tinted powder to set the foundation. Highlight the cheeks with a blusher, blending well, so that it gives the face a natural glow.
  • Outline the eyes with kajal or dark eye pencil. Apply it to the upper lid and smooth out with cotton bud. Gently blend a line of kajal or eye pencil on the lower lid. Then apply mascara.
  • Gloss is popular for the lips. Go for shades of red. Use a lip liner of the same colour as your lipstick. Apply gloss on top of colour, unless you prefer the matte look.
  • Use a decorative bindi to match the colour of your bridal dress. A bindi, studded with small sparkling stones would be ideal.
