First, apply a dark red lipstick (Makeup Revolution – Rebel With Cause)  under your eyes, and two other places you’d like your wounds to be. Forehead and neck are two of the best areas. Then add lines on your neck like above, these all then need to shaded in using a sponge to create a bruise effect.

Once you’ve done that, apply a little dead-ness to your face. I used my E.L.F 100pc eyeshadow palette and used greys and whites over my cheeks and the contours of the face for a dark look. Of course you could use faint paint instead.

For my first wound, I used the helpful tissue trick. Not sure on this? Check out my tutorial here. I used fake blood and tissue to create a flesh like wound, then I added a little shadow to create a bruised effect using yellows, greens and blues.

For one eye, I decided to go for a bruised eye kind of look. so I used similar shadows and especially greys to give the effect of a beaten eye. I then, using a brush added a little blood for a dramatic effect.

This is such an easy look than is created in under 10 minutes.
