The Fulani are one of the many ethnic groups that live in the South of Mali.
Beauty is a very important issue,especially for the Fulani women.
A distinguishing feature of a Fulani woman is her lips, which are many times a blackish color from the use of Henna or tattooing done on her mouth.

The Toposa are one of the biggest tribal groups living in the south eastern border area of South Sudan. They live in well organised villages, with different houses for dry and rainy season, granaries, where they not only keep their supllies but also their jewelry. Traditionally, the men only wear a piece of cloth draped over the body, while the women have different types of leather skirts, depending on their age and marital status. These skirts are also different if the women are working or for festive occasions. They are embellished with different coloured beads. Both men and women adorn their bodies with scarifications.
