VIDEO: Domestic Violence Victims Urged Not to Cover Up
6:02am 2nd July 2012
A new campaign is encouraging domestic violence victims to get help.
The charity Refuge is launching a new, hard-hitting video online.
It shows makeup artist Lauren Luke, with her face covered in cuts and bruises.
She shows how to use cosmetics to cover the injuries up.
Refuge says around 65% of women who experience domestic violence are believed to keep it hidden.
It wants more sufferers to seek help.
It comes as test powers, used to ban abusers from victims' homes, are extended across Greater Manchester.
Lauren Luke has a huge online following of teenage girls and young women.
Refuge hopes that the video will be shared far and wide, helping to raise awareness of abuse.
