How to get ready for a holi party?

The festival of colors, playfulness, and fun is here. And so are skin and hair troubles if you have not prepared well for it. The chemical in colors have a bad effect on our skin, hair, and body. Thus to really enjoy Holi without any harmful after effects, it is important to prepare yourself.

Oil and Moisturise your skin

The simplest and easiest way to guard your skin against the colors is to apply some oil before your moisturiser. Now that may sound a bit greasy but here is a smart way to apply it. Have your bath before going to play Holi (yes do it, even if you don’t like it), and as you finish your bath before drying up just apply mustard oil or coconut oil all over your wet body. This way, the oil will get in your skin and you will not feel greasy. After applying the oil, dry your body as usual and then use lotion or moisturiser. Be generous with the body lotion as it will prevent the colors and chemicals to get in your skin.

Wash dry and oil your hairs

You can do this the night before Holi or in the morning before stepping out to play colors. While many people avoid washing hair before going to play Holi, thinking it will anyways get dirty. But the pre-dirt mixed with colors damages your hair, making it rougher. Thus, wash and condition your hair well. Also, apply significant amount of coconut oil or olive oil in your hair. This will prevent colors from settling down on your scalp.

Paint the nails

One of the biggest aftermaths of Holi colors is on the nails that often are left in unappealing multi-colored nails. To avoid this, apply double coat of good-quality nail paint on the nails of your hands as well legs. After playing with colors, you can just use the thinner to remove the nail paint and your nails will be as beautiful as they were earlier.

Put some makeup on

Make special efforts to use waterproof makeup so that it stays until you finish celebrating. Apply a layer of waterproof base on your face and neck to ensure that the colours do not stick to the skin. For your lips, slather on a lip guard and a good quality long stay lipstick. If you do not like dark shades, go for a natural shade kiss-proof lip colour.

So, follow these tips to save yourself from the onslaught of Holi colours around. With these tips, get ready to enjoy this Holi with a complete festive spirit!

How to wear Statement Jewellery?

Jewellery is the perfect way to bring life to an outfit and enhance your best features. What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewellery?

g

Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

The beauty of statement jewellery is that it only takes one piece to make your whole outfit stand out. The key is to keep it simple and either work your outfit around one big eye-catching piece, or to work well-coordinated statement accessories into your look by striking the right balance.

From cocktail rings to cuff bracelets and bib necklaces, statement pieces come in all forms, designs, colours and sizes. They can work wonders to add dazzle to a simple dress or can help to draw attention to parts of yourself that you would like to emphasize.

Either way, make sure you follow our rules to pull off a look that gets people looking at you in awe rather than dismay.

Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close proximity of each other. It is preferable to wear one at a time, but if you do want to wear more than one statement piece, make sure not to wear statement bracelets and rings together and avoid wearing statement earrings and necklaces at the same time.

Chandelier earrings and a cuff bracelet can look beautiful when worn together, while a long necklace and a cocktail ring can match perfectly. Just make sure to select items that coordinate. Try to stick with the same kind of metal and avoid clashing patterns and charms.

Layered chain necklaces can look extremely charming if worn correctly. Keep your look tasteful by making sure that you do not layer too many strands together and keep tabs on how much sparkle you layer on.

Avoid wearing long chain necklaces, however, if you are wearing a belt, as there will be too much going on around the same area. Wide chokers and bib necklaces can stand to be your sole statement piece, so let such items take centre stage and forgo other pieces of jewellery.

Keep it Simple

Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewellery. Remember, you want your statement piece to stand out, so match items wisely.

LBD is the perfect match for one or two attention-grabbing pieces, while jeans and a pure white top will make an ideal backdrop for something big, bright and colourful. Try to stick to neutral and block colour items when wearing bright and detailed accessories. Less busy pieces can work very well with patterned items of clothing, however.

Don’t pull the focus away from your bold jewellery. Coordinate smaller accessories with your statement pieces by keeping them to a minimum and sticking to the same colour or metal.

Choose Earrings wisely

Statement earrings are beautiful, ornate and cannot be missed. They will be the first thing that anyone talking to you will notice. To make sure they frame your face, choose a pair that suits your face shape and enhances your features. Choosing the wrong pair can be distracting, so take details such as length, colour, shape and outfit coordination into consideration when choosing adornment for your ears.

When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Remember, it’s all about balance, so while you can pump up the volume with simple earrings, larger ones will balance better with loose waves or poker-straight hair.

 

Pay attention to your hands

When wearing a bold ring, it is worth remembering that it will draw attention to your hands, and consequently, your nails, so make sure they are perfectly groomed. Go for simple manicure.

Make sure that the colour of your nail polish does not clash with the colours in your ring, and avoid wearing a bold and colourful ring with multi-coloured manicures, nail art and glittery nail polish. While this may look cute on an adolescent, it does not exactly convey a statement of elegance.

These eye-catching rings are the smallest of all the statement pieces, so have as much fun with them as you like. The bigger and brighter, the better. Just remember that balance is key, so it is better to wear one at a time.

Wear pieces that create an outfit

Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement, so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a prim and polished look, opt for pearls.

Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a romantic and feminine outfit, while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look. A bold cuff will compliment a block colour mini dress, while chandelier earrings will look gorgeous with a long flowing maxi.
