Be brave, be beautiful, and be who you want to be!

Limits, like fear, is often an illusion!

As huge believers of the above statement we’re incredibly in awe of the Burning Man festival. Set in black rock city in the middle of the Nevada desert it is the ultimate place to express yourself.

What is Burning Man?

This spectacular annual festival is described as the “temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression and self-reliance”

Burning Man is not your typical festival, everything that happens there is created entirely by the festival-goers. They create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance and the experience.

Dedicated to anti-consumerism and expression Burning Man follows the following guidelines:

Radical inclusion, Gifting, Decommodification, Radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, Civic responsibility, Participation, Immediacy and Leaving no trace.

Each year the festival has a theme which forms the inspiration for artwork and outfits alike. This year the theme is I, Robot.

Burning Man Makeup

Whether you’re lucky enough to be going to the festival, or you’re throwing your own Burning Man Party, self-expression is of the upmost importance and what better way to start than with your makeup!

First off consider the ‘leaving no trace’ principle by decorating your face and body with our range of biodegradable glitter! Made from renewable raw materials, this glitter is environmentally safe and biodegradable.

Step up your festival glitter makeup with our jewelled headpieces, jewelled chest pieces and face gems. These festival beauty accessories come with self-adhesive and are re-usable!
