Moroccan TV airs makeup tips for hiding the telltale bruises on a Muslim woman’s face from domestic violence
As beating your wife is allowed under Islamic law, this advice should come in handy.
Washington Post (h/t Grant B) The makeup tutorial, aired on Moroccan state television, instructed viewers how to use concealer to “camouflage the traces of violence against women.” “After the beating, this part is still sensitive, so don’t press,” the host said in Arabic as she applied makeup on the woman’s face, eventually concealing the woman’s bruises. The segment was broadcast two days before the U.N. International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
“It’s a subject we shouldn’t talk about, but unfortunately that’s what it is,” the segment’s host, Lilia Mouline, said in the tutorial. “We hope that these beauty tips help you carry on with your normal life.”
