Cover Up

The video seems to be making waves all over the world.

The video below was commissioned by a British foundation, Refuge, which provides aid for women in or fleeing abusive relationships. It features Lauren Luke, a professional makeup artist in the UK, showing how to apply makeup in order to hide the bruises and wounds from an abusive partner.

Those of you who are not familiar with what happens to a woman who is abused by her partner, may find this tough to watch.

Despite the tremendous progress made over the past couple of decades in dealing with domestic abuse, as this video demonstrates so well, the progress is not enough. Not only does the phenomenon continue apace, but women who are being abused are the ones who feel shame, who need to hide the truth from the world.
