Holi is one of the world's most celebrated holidays and undoubtedly also one of the most fun. Spring begins with Holi in the Hindu religious calender (for more on the significance of Holi and the role of Lord Vishnu, read up here), and it happens to fall on March 20 this year. Celebrants worldwide will honor the day by having color parties, where people have a raucous good time throwing brightly pigmented powder and water at one another. By the end of the day, everyone is soaked, dyed in an array of colors, and usually pretty blissed out.
Even if you don't have a Holi party invitation this year, you can still honor the day with a little color of your own. Whether you decide to wear bright red lipstick, turquoise eye shadow, or something else entirely, let Holi's hues guide your look this weekend.
