I recently went to India (in December) and did a heck of a lot of shopping when I was there. One of the things that I bought the most of was bindis! Seriously though…I bought about 15 packets of them. Not to worry, I am putting them to very good use. Below are some such examples of looks, both simple and more elaborate, that I have created using them. Check out my Instagram (@subitamaria) for details such as the products used in the specific looks.
By now I’m sure you can tell that I love using bindis/rhinestones, whether as a feature or accent piece. They’re perfect to draw attention to the lips, or to add a little bit of sparkle and shine to a look. Although I bought mine in India, I’m sure they’re available on eBay, at Indian stores (grocery/fabric) or craft stores. Pick some up if you’re feeling experimental!
Would you ever incorporate them into a look, or d’you feel this would be too much for your lifestyle? Let me know your thoughts!
