Hard-hitting make up tutorial hides signs of domestic violence
By Ed Staples on Tuesday, July 3, 2012
Here’s a great piece of work by domestic violence charity, Refuge.
It’s a hard-hitting makeover of the beauty tutorial video featuring one of the format’s best known stars, self-taught make-up artist Lauren Luke.
“65% of women who suffer domestic violence keep it hidden,” says the onscreen copy at the end. “Don’t cover it up.”
Powerful stuff made all the more so by the fact that Lauren was once in an abusive relationship herself and so can talk authentically on the subject. Gathering views and media coverage.
