Rand Jarallah is a Palestinian activist who’s using art and makeup to raise awareness about different issues that she is passionate about. Her work is thematizing gender-based violence, global warming, psychological disorders and other different issues related to activist work. As Jarallah says, she has always been into art and has been volunteering since she was a child.
Her work is a fusion of innovation and creativity. “I haven’t met anyone who uses makeup in activism. I like to think that I am breaking the barriers and the stereotypes that accompany makeup. The general idea is that it is only used for superficial purposes,” Jarallah said. She does not find makeup itself, the products, neither feminist nor misogynist. It’s the branding, gendering and the beauty industry that is anti-feminist and limiting. Her work is thematizing gender-based violence, global warming, psychological disorders and other different issues related to activist work.
