DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PSA URGES WOMEN TO SPEAK UP, NOT COVER
 
by Katie moisse, July 3, 2012

Lauren Luke is famous for her YouTube makeup tutorials. But her latest clip, “How to look your best the morning after,” is a plea for victims of domestic violence to speak up rather than cover up. The video shows a battered-looking Luke working makeup magic to conceal the signs of abuse. “If you apply a color that is just gently off-tone with your own skin tone, you can cover up any fresh bruising,” she says, gently brushing foundation around a black eye. “It might hurt, just try your best.” The scene is part of Refuge.org’s “Don’t cover it up campaign” – http://refuge.org.uk/lauren/ a call for abused women to reach out for help ( . . . ) Luke’s bruises were fake. But for some women, the morning after routine is all too real.
