Lumps, Bumps, and Bruises! A painfully satisfying look.

Another week, another crazy look. This week, to focus on the basics of FX makeup in general, we worked with bruise tones. My mentor and I got together on the one day, where we went through each step one by one together. She kindly left her kit with me this week, so I first replicated a similar bruise on my own, then experimented on my own with a different type of bruise by looking at images online. (Would not recommend by the way it was pretty gross.) By asking questions of my mentor, I gained further insight into why we placed colours where we did, and why harsh lines were so bad.

By the way, if you were interested, the different bruise tones represent:

White/Lighter tones = swelling or bone

Yellow/Green/Blue = add depth

Purple = old blood pooling

Red = new blood pooling

And harsh lines look fake, when in doubt, blend it out!

Kylee was very patient with me through all of my questions, and really helped assuage my anxieties about the whole mentor-mentee situation. We had a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy the images I posted on my Tumblr!
