Mary Anthony: Coachella 2014 Makeup Is So Indian!


The biggest music fest is on and we have seen a lot of style, fashion and glamour going on with it.
What caught my attention most was that a lot of Indian makeup and jewellery style used by the celebs this year. The theme of dressing mainly centred around Gypsy, Boho and Freestyle these Indian makeup trends go along very well with the look.

AUTOR: Mary Anthony 

1. The Bindi 

The bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating of all forms of body decoration. Its part of the Indian Tradition one can argue that it represents a religious or status symbol. In the modern terms its used more to enhance one's beauty.Wear a bindi or a decorative mark on your forehead and you will never go unnoticed as it is very eye-catching.
The bright and colourful bindi comes in various colours and can be matched with the outfit. Youngsters Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner have given a very fashionable twist to the traditional bindi.

2. Nose Ring

Nose rings may seem new and trendy in the west, but they have existed for centuries in many parts of the world and have stood the test of time in many countries, particularly India.
Nose rings, although closely associated with Indian culture, actually originated in the Middle East. Nose rings first appeared in India during the Moghul period around the 16th century. In fact, excavations in India have not turned up any evidence of nose rings in India prior to the 16th century.
In fashion terms its a piece of jewellery worn to contribute to the overall face lift. Its beautiful, delicate and intricately made perfect for a stylish traditional outfit. Kendall Jenner wearing the rose ring with short denim and top makes a simple outfit so stylish she has certainly started a new fashion makeup trend.

3. Silver Bangles & Statement Jewellery 

There is a sea of silver bangles and statement jewelleries and it makes very interesting to notice it.
Silver is very ethnic and tribal, most of the tribal women in India use it to adorn themselves. In modern fashion sense it goes along well with gypsy or boho outfits adding warmth and vibrancy to the wearer.
