Everyone has a different love language — some show affection through acts of service, and others through words of affirmation; for some spending quality time is the best way to show they care, and others say it through gifts. Growing up, I’ve seen my parents have their own rituals like fasting for each other, pampering the other with everything they like, or something as simple as keeping each other entertained to keep their mind off food while they fast (cute, right?). This Karwa Chauth, we’re celebrating these little #RitualsOfLove that make this day so special and show your partner you care. An auspicious occasion for married women, Karwa Chauth calls for some self-pampering while you’re fasting and donning the colours of the day - red and gold, to mark the occasion. From skincare to look fresh and glowing, to makeup essentials to pull off a stunning festive look - we’ve curated a list of red and gold must-haves for the occasion. Whether you’re going for simple and subtle with a hint of bold, or you’re choosing the traditional route, these picks have got your back!
