How To Make Fake Bruises
Use a bit of water and cotton wool
Right, now I'm going to show you how to make fake bruises. Now, many people use a lot of makeup, that sort of thing but not everyone has that at home. And so, were just going to be using simple things you probably would find at home. And in this case, we're going to be using felt pens, which I've got down here. Now, you need a number of different colors. Obviously, bruises, to get that realistic colour, you need to mix it in. You need a bit of red. Normally where you get hit, it tends to bit darker than the rest. You need a bit of green, now as bruises start to get a bit older, they turn to greenish yellow and we need to blend that in, so we will be using cotton wool to blend, using water as well, just to make sure you get an overall thing as opposed to just drawing on your face. So, what I'll do is I'll be using my forearm here. We're going to start with the areas where it's most damaged. So, you're going to have some purple, let's say, we'll go with a fake bite. Now, I'm using a different piece of cotton wool for each color and we'll just dab a little bit of water and then just put a bit on there, just to spread it out a bit. Now, we need some red in there, the water from before will help. Don't be shy. Again, I'll just mix that up a bit. We might put a bit of lighter blue in there. A bit of red in the middle. Now, important as I say, green. Green, green, a bit of green, looks a little too green at the minute but when we blend it out a bit, hopefully we'll get a nice bruise. Just a little more blue. A little more of our purple. We'll just keep blending it in until you're happy with it. So, there we go. Might not pass the closest inspection. Next time you're out for Halloween, something like that, it's a really easy simple way to make fake bruises. .
