There are plenty of techniques out there but this is handy because it dosnt use any specialty materials.
This can be used to create whatever kind of bruise you can think of from a black eye to bruised shin.:)
You can mess around with the colours to get the effect your looking for.:)
and it will literally take 5 minutes to do..!
Step 1: Materials
you need the following colours or close to it.:
A deep blue colour
A pink colour
A green colour
you'll also need a makeup brush and your finger to smudge.
Step 2: Prepare the Skin and First Layer
Then apply the first layer of the deep blue and smudge it to blend it in. Try not to make it round because it wouldnt look realistic.
Step 3: Second Layer
Step 4: Final Layer
Step 5: Result
Apparently theres different stages of a bruise (Hard to notice when your cursing and swearing at being kicked or something) so heres the basic colours in each just to make it easier for you..:)
As far as I can figure out there are three main stages. I could be wrong here so dont quote me.
The early/fresh stage
-the bruise goes a redsish colour at the start basically just after you've been kicked..:/
The middle stage
-After the few curses and swears the bruise starts to turn to a a darker red to purple then a black or blue.
(im fairly certain this is the stage mine is based on)
The healing stage
-It then starts to turn a brown then greenish colour then to a yellow. If you do have a bruise I think this means its healing (again dont quote.:))
Step 6: Removal
Thanks for viewing and let me no what you think..:)
