There has been a lot of talk these days about Burning Manan artistic and musical festival that has been held since 1991 in Black Rock City, a city that comes to life thanks to man only one week a year and is located in the Nevada desert, in America.
What made the event more popular was the unexpected rain that transformed the arid desert dust into mud, blocking us inside the city itself, which turned from a playground into a quagmire. But that’s another story…
Burning Man attracts from hippies to celebrities
For some time, however, the festival had made itself known not only for the celebrities who attend it (Cara Delevingne caused a scandal last year), but above all for the breathtaking shots with cover makeup and hair that the influencers post on social media.
In the desert the climate is hostile
However, you should know that in Black Rock City, as in any desert, the conditions are very hospitable: the sun beats down very strongly during the day accompanied by scorching heat, while at night the temperature drops dramatically. The icing on the cake are the frequent sandstorms and, now it seems, also the rains.
This justifies (in part) the way in which the participants dress up Burning Man: bandanas, balaclava, glasses and hat to protect yourself from the sun and dust, afro braids to prevent your hair from drying out and to overcome the difficulty of taking a shower in the desert, and so on.
The beauty allies in the desert: SPF and Vaseline
The beauty repertoire to use over there also has some essentials indispensable: they play it on equal terms Sun protection and Vaseline, to be applied often on the hands and lips, and almost everywhere, to avoid cuts and peeling. I couldn’t have survived without it.
Also saving is the refreshing water spray for the face, which I happily shared with fellow partygoers hot under the sun.
Burning Man is an explosion of colours, lights and music
However, the climatic dangers do not discourage the participants of the event from expressing their creativity also through skin, body, hair, contributing to the joyful riot of colours, lights, music and bizarreness that is the master of Black Rock City.
We therefore want to show you the real faces of Burning Man, rather than the influencers, faces from which neither heat nor cold, dust nor mud have taken away their smile and style.
