The Nostalgic Little Dots of Beauty

By Nagashree

A bindi right in the center of the forehead gives a complete look to the bridal makeup. The ritualistic dot is one of the integral parts of a bride’s solah sringar and compliments her overall look quite elegantly. It is considered a taboo for a married woman in India to keep her forehead devoid of the traditional red dot, popularly known as bindi.

As with all the other accessories of a bride’s attire, there have been lots of improvisations with the pretty bindi as well. The latest trends in Bridal Bindis are:

Traditionally, the bindis were elaborately painted on the forehead, covering the arches over the eyebrows with colorful dots and diamonds. “Many brides still opt for these designs and many chemical free colours have been used for the purpose”, says Seetha M, an employee at ‘Sringar Bangles’. “Shimmers can be used to outline the designs and add to the bling”, she adds.

Sticker bindis are extremely popular which come in a range of designs, some with kundan and other semi-precious stones embedded into them. 

The choice of bindi is usually made in a way such that the size of it is proportional to the size of the forehead. “Brides with not-too-wide forehead region can go for single diamante bindis that are available in infinite colours. These are simple yet attractive. There are long bindis too that brides can wear to accentuate their overall look”, says Suma, a bridal makeup artiste.

When it comes to the bridal bindi, different communities follow different customs. For example, a Brahmin bride has to put a half moon shaped bindi in red, the Bengali brides adorn their forehead with a large solid red dot in the centre with smaller white dots along the eyebrow arch. Similarly, Marathi brides use crescent shaped bindis, decorated all around with colorful dots and designs.
