SPFX Tutorial by LeeAnn Rubin
Step One: How Did It Happen?
Every wound needs a backstory.
This one happened by hammer.
Step Two: The Shape
Now that you have the origin of your wound, the next step is to create the shape of the bruise.
Using Mehron Paradise Paint in Black, I created a circle where I was hit. To apply the powder, I used a medium-sized eyeshadow brush.
Step Three: The Blood Beneath The Skin
After creating my black bruise circle, I gently went over it with dry Mehron Starblend Cake Makeup in Red, patting it over the entire area with the medium eyeshadow brush.
The mixture of colors creates a nice purple hue.
Step Four: Final Touches
I went back to Step Two to really define the black circle.
Then as a final touch of realism, I used Graftobian Blood Paste just to give it that “smashed so hard it broke through the skin” look.
I hope you enjoyed my mini-tutorial!
Thanks for KILLING IT with me!
