Just two days before the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Moroccan state television aired a handy tutorial featuring these tips:
After the beating, this part is still sensitive, so don't press. Make sure to use lose powder to fix the makeup, so if you have to work throughout the day, the bruises don't show through.
The make-up tutorial instructed women on how to cover up bruises received following a beating by her husband. It was all part of helping Moroccan women return to their normal lives.
"When your normal life is getting beaten, we hope it does not continue," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

PAT: You talk about a War on Women. And we continually hear how Republicans are waging a War on Women.
In Morocco, a smiling woman on a daily Moroccan TV show gave tips -- gave women tips on how to apply makeup after that beating your husband gives you.
PAT: Comparing --
PAT: -- brands and hues of face foundation and demonstrating how to apply it. Seated next to her was this host -- seated next to the host was a woman with what appeared to be a black eye and bruises on her cheek bone. And here's what this hostess said in Arabic: After the beating, this part is still sensitive, so don't press. Make sure to use lose powder to fix the makeup, so if you have to work throughout the day, the bruises don't show through.
PAT: The makeup tutorial, which aired last Wednesday on Moroccan state television, instructed viewers how to use concealer to camouflage the traces of violence against women.
It spread a little bit of outrage, as you can maybe imagine. Even in the Muslim world. The segment was broadcast two days before the UN international day for 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 said in the tutorial. We hope that these beauty tips help you carry on with your normal life.
STU: When your normal life is getting beaten, we hope it does not continue.
PAT: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That kind of should be the message.
Use foundation with yellow in it. If you use the white one, your red punch marks will always show.
STU: Hmm. That's sad.
PAT: That is unbelievable!
JEFFY: That sure is.
PAT: Why is it that women's groups in this country cannot band together against this? Why is it that we have to say, "Well, you called her Miss instead of Miss. Oh, that's wrong."
PAT: Really? That's what you're going to argue about, when this kind of stuff is going on?
