Halloween is just around the corner and if you still have no idea what to dress up as, why not add a desi spin to your look? The look involves dressing as a traditional desi bride…with scary face makeup.

This trend started off with an Instagram post by artist Maria Qamar, who posted a image to promote an exhibition she was running alongside artist and Instagram influencer Babbu The Painter. Make up artist, Jasmine Lakhesar later recreated this image and brought it to life adding her own unique spin to the look and sharing it on her social media page. Since then this trend has exploded with various Youtubers, bloggers and make up artists creating their own versions of scary make up, paired with Indian attires and absolutley slaying it.
