Here we are in October of the year 2018 already and it’s the festival time. We wait for this period as it gives the chance to meet our family and friends. Navratri has started – It’s the festival of 9 days. Goddess Durga is worshipped during these  9 days and it celebrates the victory of good over evil. It’s celebrated across many parts of India and across the globe. Navratri is fully packed with activities like Dandiya nights, Garba, Durga Puja, scrumptious feasts, Rawan Dahan and much more.  Everyone from children to adults can tap their feet to the folk music, remixes and enjoy Dandiya nights.

Everyone is gearing for the festival season to look your best of ethnic during these celebrations.
It’s the perfect occasion to take our all your dark shades of makeup, which you avoid.
Go with dark and glitters for your Navratri makeup.
Don’t forget to apply ice before starting your makeup as dancing may lead to sweating and it may spoil your makeup.
If you are wearing outfits like salwar suits then go for light and matching makeup.
