Turn heads this puja with these style and beauty cues

The year 2020 has, so far, proven to be bleak and unsavoury. But with the festive season knocking on the door, there’s much to look forward to. While it may not be safe to step out amid a pandemic, there’s no reason to not slip into gorgeous outfits and beautify your face! After all, even house parties and mandatory festive photo sessions call for a well put-together look, don’t they? In an exclusive photoshoot with CT ahead of Durga Puja, actresses Tnusree Chakraborty and Gargee RoyChowdhury serve a masterclass in styling and makeup. These looks are easy to achieve and perfect for the festive season. Give these a shot!

Will dress up for video call: Tnusree

Apart from a house party, I’ll attend the Puja at my friend’s place and have dinner with some school friends of mine. My sister, who lives in Pune, will be in Kolkata, so we’re planning a get-together as well. A video call with friends who are out of town is also planned, and I can’t wait to dress up for it! I’ve decided on the gold maxi for the dinner soiree and the black suit for my friend’s puja.

I’m gearing up to host Ashtami lunch at my place: Gargee

The pandemic has compelled us to look at life differently. This Puja will be very different but one that’ll be etched on our minds forever. Coronavirus cannot dampen the spirit of Bengal’s biggest festival, can it? I’m gearing up to host Ashtami lunch at my place, with all my relatives over. To maintain social distancing, we have decided to shift it to our spacious terrace this year. An adda session with friends has also been planned and I’ll slip into the beige dress for it. The red sari will be perfect for the Dashami dinner that I will host at my place.
