Reshma’s tutorial on how to get the perfect red lips begins just like any other makeup tutorial, but in the end, she reminds her viewers that in India, beauty products similar to the ones she used are just as easy to obtain as concentrated acid.
In 2014, Reshma’s brother-in-law threw sulphuric acid on her face and as a result, she lost her left eye and her right eye is partially closed. She suffered from severe burns and disfigurements, especially on her face.
She urges viewers to sign the Make Love Not Scars petition that aims to ban the over-the-counter sale of acid. There are about 1,000 acid attack cases in India every year, and most of these victims are women who are usually attacked for rejecting marriage proposals and sexual advances.
