Glad you liked it.
I did real makeup one night out there and NEVER again, it was so hard to get off, just generally very annoying. The rest of the week I did face paint but that's it, it stays on really well AND comes off super easy with baby wipes, 2 very important things. I did get a few pairs of crazy fake eyelashes for 2013 but we'll see how often those get put on....
I love wearing makeup out there (or anywhere). Hey--extra SPF protection, that's my excuse. (I do like it that there is not an expectation
that I wear it, however.) Makeup comes off easiest with an oil-based remover (or jojoba oil) for eye makeup and any other stubborn parts, followed by a certain major brand of makeup remover towelettes (or baby wipes) with maybe a little extra water/a dab of body wash added, and a wastebasket between your knees to catch the drips.
My hat is off to you if you manage false eyelashes on the playa. I've seen some folks manage it, but between the difficulties of lantern light and the extra time (I've always got somewhere I needed to be YESTERDAY) I have always either given up mid-process or--more often than that--never touched 'em at all. And even when I was supposed to be wearing them for Rocky Horror.
(I normally give the lash glue about 60 seconds to get tackier and stickier, but something about playa air seems to makes the glue take longer to get sticky.)
