Karwa Chauth 2018 will be celebrated tomorrow i.e. October 27 which is observed on the fourth day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik. ‘Karwa’ means an earthen pot and ‘Chauth’ means fourth in Hindi. On this day married women observe fast for the longevity of their husbands and worship Lord Shiva and his family. Just like every other Indian festival, it also marks an occasion to dress up in traditional attires. One of the important rituals followed by married women on Karva Chauth is applying mehndi or henna on their palms. To help you with the latest trends, we have compiled some traditional mehendi designs that you can apply this Karva Chauth 2018. Karwa Chauth 2018 Makeup Ideas: Latest Trends, Tips & Video Tutorials to Follow to Shine Like the Moon on This Festival.

There are different types of mehendi designs, from traditional, Arabic to contemporary and floral, women are spoiled for choices.

With changing times, people also have tweaked the traditions, but some remain intact. Apart from applying henna, women also deck up from head to toe just like a bride. The shringaar includes wearing bright and vibrant traditional outfits and adorn beautiful jewellery. The festival is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in North India as compared to other parts of the country. We hope that these designs are helpful for the upcoming festival. Happy Karwa Chauth 2018!
