Trend Makeup Tradition
Several Middle Eastern countries have traditions relating to decorating the face and body in some form or another. I particularly love the Hindu application of Mehndi, the delicate designs that are applied to the hands and feet of a Hindu bride. Lawsonia Inermis is the plant that is used to make the henna mixture, sometimes people refer to the beautiful patterns and symbols as Henna. The paste made from the henna plant is not permanent but it can last up to 3 weeks.
