All set to celebrate Friendship Day with your new homies from college? Here’s how to put the most fashionable foot forward

After helping you ace the perfect look for the first day of college, we are back to make this Friendship Day memorable for you.

College is one of the easiest places to make friends and yet, the first time celebrations may get overwhelming. Just remember, you’re not the only one and others are probably stressing too. So, put on your brightest smile and take cue from these cool tips to make sure you look your best.

Au naturel makeup

We suggest you enjoy this day to the fullest by opting for light, carefree makeup. Waterproof mascara, a tinted lip balm and most ­importantly, a great BB cream are enough to make you look bright, happy and friendly. Carry a tube of the new Fair & Lovely BB cream, which gives a flawless makeup ­finish. The Fair & Lovely BB cream brings together the benefits of both foundation and fairness cream that instantly covers spots, ­blemishes and dark circles to give you a natural makeup finish. Its SPF 15 PA++ factor protects you from the sun. Just apply it evenly on your face and neck, and voila! You are all set to go without ­having to worry about touch-ups.


Keep it chic

The way you dress up and carry yourself will reveal a lot about your personality. So, wear something special, but remember to dress in a non-threatening way that is still you. According to your college crowd, you might have to jazz up or tone down your dressing style. The key is to mix up but still stand out.

You can sport a chic look by teaming florals and pastels. Wear a nice knee-length skirt with a floral top. If you have a more tomboyish approach towards your dressing, then wear a denim dungaree along with a bright T-shirt. You can also rock leggings with a nice sheer top.

Since the occasion is ­informal, keep it casual. Don’t overdo it, but don’t kill it either. A messy braid, pony with a puff, or just untied hair will do the trick. Don’t forget to accessorise — it is very important. Wear one blingy piece that goes well with your attire. For girls ­opting for ­florals, just grab a nice scarf and small stud earrings. On Friendship Day, you will be constantly on your foot, so wear something trendy and comfortable. Neon colours in footwear are the in thing this season.

Funk up with florals
Jazz up your look according to your college gang. The key is to mix ‘n’ match and yet play safe with pastel hues and floral prints. Wearing a nice knee-length skirt with a floral top is the right way to be dolled up without being too ­obvious. Keep your hairstyle simple and breezy with a messy braid or just leave your hair untied. Flaunt flawless skin by opting for a great BB cream and finish off your look with a light pink tinted lip balm.

Keep it casual with denims Keep yourself comfortable and ready to create memories with your favourite pair of denims. Teaming dungarees with a bright-hued top will keep you cool and stylish during the humid day. Pair them with neon-hued sandals or your favourite sneakers for a relaxed, fun look.
