Open Wound Tutorial

Hey guys!
I probably should have filmed a video when I did this, but I didn't, so I thought I'd try to explain it as well as I could in this blog post! So here is how to make an open wound!



Apply a layer of liquid latex (you could also use normal tacky glue or eyelash adhesive if you want to), wait until it's tacky and place some toilet paper over it. Rip the toilet paper off, so the edges are jagged and it's stuck well to the skin. Continue layering the liquid latex and toilet paper until it is the desired thickness, keeping in mind that it needs to blend seamlessly with your actual skin. 

After it has dried a little bit, take a tooth pick and start picking at the center, making a circle and creating depth. Be careful not to pick at your actual skin, though, and take your time! I also took some tweezers and lifted the layers around the wound to add dimension and depth. 

Cover everything with foundation! I did this on my hand, so my foundation didn't match perfectly, but try to get it as close as possible to your skintone!

Take a matte red or berry shade (I used a blush) around the edges and in the "wound". I then layered a burgundy matte shade and layered it over the top, making sure to blend well. Finally, I added some black around the inside portion to create shadows and more depth. 

You could use liquid "blood" for this step, but I actually used my OCC lip tars! I put a drop or two, and spread it around the wound, and let it drip down my hand. I used a cotton swab to spread it and create texture. 

So that's it! I hope that this was helpful, and I'm so sorry that I didn't make a video on this! Leave any questions below if you have any, and I'll be sure to answer it! Also, make sure that you have fun with this and tweet me some of your pictures because I'd love to see you recreate it!
