This can also double as dead or zombie makeup, for your creepy costume lovers!
*THIS IS ALL MAKE UP SO DONT WORRY. THIS IS ONLY TO BE USED IN COSTUMING PURPOSES*
Step 1: Supplies Needed
Mehron Coagulated Blood Gel
Mehron "Charred Ash"
Cosmetic Latex Free applicator sponges
You will also need a lip brush (blood gel) and a blush/powder brush (charred ash powder). If you don't own these, a small paintbrush and sponge brush will do just fine.
Step 2: Base
Step 3: Apply to Leg
Apply lightly. If you have light skin like me (I'm called Paper Ghost by my friends) you just want to BARELY see it. If you have darker skin, make sure it's extremely light.
Apply in the shape of an eye longways (so not facing you; to the side)
*Note in the phot it's JUST BARELY VISABLE. This is important in the realistic-ness of it.
Step 4: Powder
*I recommend doing this over a bag as it's sorta messy.
Take the lid off the powder and tap a little into it. You don't need very much.
Then, ever so carefully, take your blush brush and dip it into your lid
Step 5: Apply "Charred Skin"
Basically, just started on the outside being light, and gradually get darker closer to wherever you want your "blood" leaving a small section of the skin showing.
Step 6: Brush Out the Edges.
Step 7: Blood... ;-D
Open the blood gel carefully and put some on the lip brush.
*Tip. If you want the blood to look more real and less blob-y, try making little tributaries branching from the main cut, and make some areas of blood thicker than others.
Just follow the pictures for step by step.
Step 8: Finished
May the odds be EVER in your favour
