Step 1: Prepare
FAKE EDIBLE BLOOD
In a small mixing bowl mix 1/2 cup corn syrup, Tablespoon Cocoa, 1/2 oz red food coloring & tablespoon cornstarch with whisk.
Cover face & neck with with liquid foundation.
Using Elmer's glue, place several glue dots in clusters where you would like "scabs" on forehead & neck. Allow glue to set for 10 minutes.
Step 2: Skin Flaps
Using Elmer's glue, put a generous amount around eye ( be sure to make it in a large circle) this is the area you will want the ripped skin. Rip up toilet paper in 1.5 inch strips, make sure to rip the square edges off. Place toilet paper on glue around eye in about 2 layers, be sure that they are completely wet with glue. Allow to dry.
Using the same method, put glue on one side of mouth where you want your jaw to be ripped. use same toilet paper technique.
Step 3: Scabs
On glue dot clusters you made earlier, put pieces of oatmeal. These will feel loose but will stay on as long as you dont touch them. Allow to dry.
Step 4: Veins & Lips
Using a tiny paint brush or toothpick make vein like lines on forehead & neck using light purple acrylic paint or grease paint.
After it dries, apply a light coat of baby powder to lighten.
Cover lips in dark foundation.
Use purple eyeshadow on lips over foundation.
Step 5: Eye & Mouth Wounds Continued
Apply foundation on toilet paper around eyes & mouth to make skin color.
Using blush brush apply black & red eyeshadow on "skin flaps" very lightly. This is just to make flaps look like they are decaying.
Using a nail file or butter knife, pull back toilet paper from inside wound just enough to flap out. Be careful not to rip off.
Using a makeup foam or foam paint brush apply a light layer of red grease paint inside facial wounds. Be sure to cover entire area of eye including lid.
Using blush brush apply a bit of black eyeshadow over grease paint to darken.
Step 6: Finishing Scabs
Apply a light layer of foundation on oat cluster using finger tip or makeup foam. Allow to dry for a minute or two.
Using blush brush apply a good layer of red eyeshadow over oats followed by a light layer of black eyeshadow.
Using a cottom swab apply a few dots of red grease paint in oats.
Step 7: Eye Bruising
Apply red eyeshadow generously around eye that does not have the wound.
Follow up with a light layer of black or dark purple to creat bags to your liking.
You should also apply black eyeshadow under cheek bones lightly to slim face.
Step 8: Finishing Touches
Apply a generous amount of baby powder to neck & arms.
Using a blush brush apply baby powder to face as well to lighten tone.
Using prepared blood, apply within eye and mouth wounds as well as down chin and neck. Be generous as it does dry quickly.
Apply blood in areas to your liking.
