Halloween season comes with a huge purpose this year with everything that has been happening in the world ever since the most recent Israeli aggression against Palestine. If you have been keeping up with the news already, it is most likely you have seen Israeli content creators mocking Palestinians using some ugly makeup, as detected and compiled by Al Jazeera English. Some Israelis even taught their children how to mock Palestinian children who are just of their age or even younger.
We do not have it in us to go about the spooky season with the same fun vibes we bring to our readers, given all the heaviness we feel in our chests at this moment. However, we have come across some talented Muslim women who have been reclaiming the narrative imposed by these heartless Zionist content creators to spread awareness about the genocide in Gaza to those who might have not explored what has been happening beyond the makeup and cosplay niches.
And with many pro-Palestine content creators and supporters losing their jobs and livelihoods because of standing with Palestine, we deeply respect these courageous Muslim women who have taken their support for Palestinians into digital spheres beyond those related to geopolitics.
We have brought you a list of the top eight prominent makeup looks that make up an opposite force for good in the face of the degrading content created by Israeli content creators over the past few days.
As the aggression against Palestinians keeps intensifying, please use your voice in whatever ways you can to get Palestine’s message across. If your talent is makeup, create makeup looks that speak about the occupation in Palestine; if you are a songwriter, dedicate a song to Palestine; if you are a photographer, use your camera to introduce Palestine-related images to your followers; if you can draw, draw an illustration about Palestine and educate your followers. Whatever it is that you can do, just do it. You can change the narrative in your circle, and your circle will take it from there.
Use your skills and talents to help in any way possible. Do not wait for world leaders to make a move. You make a move.
