Take a look at 15 stunning and easy-to-do Karwachauth inspired mehndi designs for new mothers!
Karwachauth is finally here and all the North-Indian married women must be gearing up for the special day! But, for all you new mothers out there who are finding it difficult to be completely involved in the celebration, worry not! We totally understand how difficult it really is to be able to take time out and figure all the nitty gritties of this festival. If you are going to keep a fast, make sure to keep it in a healthy way. As for the decking-up part, we have handpicked 15 simple (and a couple of intricate/more elaborate) Arabic mehndi designs that can be sported on Karwachauth. Some of them can be easily tried at home too!
Karwachauth is a special day. It is all about looking extra special! If you haven’t got much time to spare, try out a few home remedies and homemade beauty tips for a naturally glowing skin, wear smokey eye makeup (it’s easy to do, really) or just watch a couple of video tutorials on Youtube to get makeup ideas. Who says, you need to follow the exact instructions? Just tweak it as per your need and opt for a trendy Indian tradition outfit from your wardrobe. If nothing else, go for a traditional saree. A red outfit never goes wrong on a day like Karwachauth. Avoid anything very heavy as the intricate embroidery of the blouse can irritate your baby’s skin. Jazz up your look with a few jewel pieces/accessories/ornaments. A statement neckpiece or just a pair of earrings and a bracelet would do. With a little baby to look after, it gets difficult to wear glass bangles. So, TCT recommends you avoid it. A gorgeous bindi (or a pinch of vermilion powder) on the forehead will complete the look!
As for the hands, opt for a simple design which isn’t very time consuming. Back of the hands is the best area to go for if you are a new mother. The rationale is that you don’t have to wait for long for the mehndi to dry off and so the baby-related chores can be tackled easily. A square at the center of the hand with the mehndi dipped tips is also a good idea. Or just decorate your fingers with a stylish Arabic vine.
Here are a few images for you to draw your inspiration from.. So, mommies, look fabulous this Karwachauth 🙂
The Champa Tree wishes all the ladies a very Happy Karwachauth!
