Going the Traditional Way - South Indian Traditional Saree and Makeup

This post is in continuation of my previous OOTD post - Check it out here !!

I always prefer wearing accessories that are not the usual traditional ones that others would wear, but wish to stand out in the crowd. Though reluctantly due to lack of time I had decided I would be wearing my gold jhumka for my cousin's wedding , I was constantly looking for something that could replace it at the last minute. I have been lucky most of the times that I will find what I desire for it because to some extent I believe in the concept of Law of Attraction.

I spotted this Jhumka for INR 450 at the same exhibition where I bought the Chandbalis I wore for my cousin's sangeet.

It matched my saree so well that there was no thinking twice. Let me reveal the makeup and outfit details :

Ignore my expression - Purple Silk saree form Kanchipuram

Saree is from Prakash Silk Sarees Kanchipuram - Bought in 2012

It costed me INR 23000 that time. Now Silk saree rates have gone up.

The reason I couldn't click my pics properly was because the ladies went off to the Mandapam to get ready and my husband joined us later. So I had to click my own pictures but I was truly impressed with the makeup.
