Chopped Off Hands Makeup Tutorial

Hi guys!
I wanted to do another makeup tutorial for you guys! I was going to do one on my face and film it, but it never ended up looking good, and I was unhappy with the footage, so I decided to do this and write a blog post on it!



Prosthetic:
I applied a two parallel lines of liquid latex on my wrist, around an inch and a half apart. You can vary the width of the lines and the space between them, although remember that the wider the space, the easier it is to contour it! Then put on either rolled up pieces of toilet paper or strips of cotton on top, and cover with another layer of the liquid latex. 

Makeup: 
Cover everything with a foundation matching your skintone. Use a matte burgundy/red eyeshadow to fill in the space between the lines as well as around the perimeter. Then take a matte black eyeshadow on an angled brush and apply it on the inner parts, where the shadows would be if it were real. Then take a liquid lipstick (red) or fake blood, spread it around the inner part of the "wound" and around the edges too! I took a sponge to buff out the edges to make it blurry and seamless, but you could leave it rough and rugged if you wanted!

So I hope this made sense! I'm definitely not the best at explaining, but this was all pretty straightforward and I think you should be able to do this easily! Let me know what you think of it in the comments, and remember that if you're going to do this, you can do it on the top of your hand, bottom, or all the way around!
