9. The footwear

Wear rubber bathroom or Hawaii chappals and not leather footwear as they get soaked in water and may give in. If you have sensitive skin it is best to cover yourself as much as you can. Wear a full-sleeved t-shirt or shirts that cover your arms fully.

10. White and light colours

Wear white or light clothes if possible as the colours of Holi are best showcased in white. Also it is best to wear something old and worn out so you do not regret getting spoilt.

11. Holi Make-up Idea

Though there is a widely held concept that there’s no need for make-up on Holi since it gets spoiled anyway, this is not true. Make-up is more important on this day than any other function as it will help protect your skin from the dangerous chemicals in the colours. So use waterproof make-up, especially as a base and eye make-up, and don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your face and all visible body parts. Bold eyes will enhance your looks even after you have been covered in colours. 

12. Jewellery

Don’t ever wear your precious or expensive jewellery on Holi as it might get ruined. Instead, try going for the cheaper yet funky jewellery available almost everywhere. If you are wearing a traditional dress, try some jhumkas as they seem to be made for the occasion and are available in so many eye-catching designs and colours. For a Western look, you could go for bracelets, earcuffs, rings or necklaces. But try to keep minimal accessories as much as you can.
