10 February 2017
  • Artist Rand Jarallah has used makeup to raise awareness of the harms of child marriage. The theme of her project is: Child marriage is not a good look. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder

  • It is part of UNFPA’s annual #IDONT campaign, which calls for ending child marriage. Five school-aged girls in New York volunteered to act as a canvas for Ms. Jarallah. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder

  • She used deliberately excessive makeup to create dissonance between the girls’ youth and the traditional trappings of a wedding. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder

  • If nothing is done to stop this trend, an estimated 70 million girls will be married, before their 18th birthdays, in the next five years. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder
