"Burmese Faces: Two Burmese girls peek around an old teak door, proudly wearing the make up they had just been applying on the floor of their home in front of mirrors. The thanaka paste on the younger girl is made from a ground up tree root mixed with water, and is applied to the skin for beauty and skin protection." Photo by David Lazar, via Flickr.
