Makeup is an essential part of every Burning Man costume. But it’s something we constantly have to battle with. Keeping your skin healthy is essential on the playa as the alkali dust that blankets Black Rock Desert and turns into a no-visibility storm at times can cause something called playa foot, a reaction similar to a chemical burn, if you have cracks in your skin.
Some quick pieces of advice:
- Accept the fact that facial wipes will replace the majority of your showers.
- Moisturize the shit out of your skin.
- Don’t assume your hair is a lost cause.
- Take care of your hands and feet and avoid Playa Feet.
Here are some easy to use, Burner proven and dust proof makeup for your desert adventures.
