This Powerful Makeup Tutorial Does So Much More Than Teach You How to Apply Eyeliner


Marie Claire has introduced us to Reshma, who is without question one of the most inspiring beauty bloggers ever. She’s an acid-attack survivor who bravely decided to post a “beauty tutorial” that sends the world an important message about the effort to ban the sale of over-the-counter concentrated acid in India.

In one of her videos, Reshma meticulously applies eyeliner to her one remaining eye. Toward the video’s conclusion, she boldly states her most important insight: People can buy an eyeliner in India for 100 rupees (close to $1.50), and they can also buy concentrated acid for the same cost. “That is the reason why every day a girl becomes a victim of an acid attack,” explains Reshma. She then urges viewers to sign Make Love Not Scar’s petition to ban the sale of acid. Can you imagine a more powerful “tutorial”?

According to the organization’s petition letter, acid attacks are a form of gender-based violence, with women accounting for nearly 90 percent of the victims. India has seen about 1,000 acid attacks a year; the frequency has increased 250 percent from 2012 to 2014. Watch Resma’s powerful video below, and sign Make Love Not Scar’s petition here.
