Makeup Isn't Just For Beauty: It Can Also Show Society's Ugliness
Palestinian activist Rand Jarallah uses her face as a canvas to make a statement.
Makeup can be used for more than just beauty. It can also show the ugly parts of our society.
Palestinian activist and makeup artist Rand Jarallah uses her face as a canvas to confront anorexia, child marriage, military occupation, natural disasters, gender-based violence and environmental destruction.
Jarallah told Marie Claire: "I do find that lots of people question my feminism because of it — they believe that make up is a sort of suppressor, which disempowers women. But I want to challenge that idea, and show everyone what I can do with it to make it powerful instead."
