Lehenga on. Earrings in. Bindi on my finger. And I’m perplexed. Where does the bindi go?
Okay, obviously I know that it goes on your forehead. But where on your forehead? Centered between your eyebrows? Sitting above? Halfway above?
Frowning into my reflection, I waved my bindied finger around trying to find the right spot, a task made all the more challenging by the fact that one of my eyebrows is higher than the other.
Thanks to my recent study of Madhuri Dixit’s pictures in painfully precise detail, I now know that proper bindi placement is halfway above your eyebrows. Which is great, since that’s exactly where I didn’t place my bindi before I went to that reception last July.
As the wise ones say, you can’t win ‘em all. And at least I had bindis on hand to f* up in the first place. A ton of them, in fact, all conveniently located in my bindi book.
A bindi book is exactly what it sounds like—a small, hardy book brimming with bindis of different colors and sizes. It’s perfect to have on hand if you’re one of 2 types of people: you wear bindis on the reg, or you wear them rarely (in which case your book will last you a looooong time).
Ready to get your bindi book? Here are some of the best ones I could find.
A classic selection of colorful, round, velvet bindis.
A classy choice for your soiree—the gold foil Henna Plant plates.
A big book of ombré bindis to give your accessorizes some added edge.
