Acid Attack Victim Beauty Tutorial

This Heart-Wrenching Red Lip Beauty DIY Will Make You Cry

In 2014, Reshma was a pretty teenager living in Mumbai, India, looking forward to completing school and finding a job. But in one day, her life was completely shattered. During a visit to the northern town of Allahabad, where she would be taking an exam, her brother-in-law attacked her with sulfuric acid. Reshna lost her left eye, while her right eye is partially closed and infected. She suffers from severe burns and disfigurement and needs cosmetic surgery to correct the tight muscles around her mouth.

Unfortunately, Reshma's is not an isolated case. According to the BBC, India sees approximately 1,000 acid attacks each year, which is claimed to be a low estimate as many victims are too humiliated to report. Through a simple red lip tutorial, Reshma is raising awareness for fellow victims and the organization Make Love Not Scars. This group has started a petition calling for the Indian government to ban the sale of acid (which some people use to clean their homes) to the average consumer. "You'll find a red lipstick easily in the market . . . just like concentrated acid," Reshma warns.

Watch Reshma's moving video, then make a difference by signing this important petition.
