in suri culture, beauty is everything.

lip plates, scarification, facial paint and flowers are used to enhance a woman's appearance.

younger girls grind down local rocks to create basic paint supplies and apply them in various designs.

flowers are used to complete the process.

the paint is often applied using sticks, bottle tops and bullet cartridges.

the suri take great pride in decorating their bodies, and it's not uncommon to see tribes-people carrying small mirrors. vanity is a human trait.
