    Berber Make-up: Lipstick on your collar?

    berber-ochre-agadir

    Up in the mountains of Agadir it's a great experience meeting the Berber people. Take a look insight and into the unique culture of the proud Berber people with the most famous Blue People of the Tuareg Berbers (to meet the last group you have to enter the desert!).

    One of the products the Berber people use is made of the natural mineral of red ochre. For a make-up artist a special small bowl may be very interesting ...

    What to buy: I got able to buy this Berber small bowl, which had been made out of red ochre from the mountains, mixed with herbs, oil and others. Only when moistened it release a beautiful red dye the Berber women put on their lips. Hot trend for your beauty-suitcase ...

    What to pay: I bought the "Berber lipstick" for just a few Dirham. No make-up artist at home had ever heard of it! So great buy.

    In The Souk: Carpets In Hot Colours

    When you want to buy carpets, it's good to know there are 2 different types. The old ones are named "Rural carpets", next to the modern "Urban carpets". You pay for the value by the number of knots (so go for a count), or strands of warp I heard. When you absolutely donot know anything about this, just follow your heart, ... and visual attraction ot the harmonious combination of beautiful colors.

    What to buy: You'll find lot of touristshops here, though it isn't that traditional. Moroccan handicrafts maybe look great, it is better to visit a large souk (local market), or go up in the mountains to the Berber people. Ofcourse you'll hear the sound of bargaining, that is a habit and tradition! I love the coloured carpets, and could cover my whole place endowed with these carpets ...

    What to pay: Well... to start some 90 Euro will do good, though you won't get away to pay some 900 Euro ... guess when you really want a kind of special coloured one, you'll pay the price!
