STEP 1:

Using Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette, build the foundation of the bruised effect by diffusing Venetian Red with a blending brush in the desired location.


 


STEP 2:

Using a dense blending brush, layer Red Ochre over your Venetian Red application. Keep the saturation and shapes inconsistent for a more realistic effect.


 


STEP 3:

Using Lip Palette, stipple the primary colors and deep red and burgundy shades with a makeup sponge to create edges or build up a 3-D effect.



 
 
 

PRO TIP:

Rip a makeup sponge and use the torn edge to give your application a jagged-looking effect.

 
 

BLOOD

Blood, guts, gore—oh my! If you’re going for a vampire mouth dripping after a fresh kill, a messy medical mishap or cast-off spatter from a murderous incident, these tricks will help you master your gruesome applications.

BLOODY WOUND:

Using Brush 3, sheer out and blend American Doll Liquid Lipstick around the edges of your application area.

Deepen the effect withJet Waterproof Creme Color.

Apply Lip Gloss in shade Moon Jelly to create the effect and texture of a fresh wound.


  

BLOOD SPLATTER EFFECT:

Roll and saturate a spool brush with American Doll Liquid Lipstick.

While holding the spool brush over your desired application area, flick the brush with your thumb and forefinger to create a blood splatter effect.
