Fresh Bruise Moulage Recipe of the Month
Using red make-up, lightly apply a medium-sized, approximately 2 inch × 2 inch circular pattern to the skin of victim. Gently blot the color with a tissue along the outside perimeter of the bruise layer, variegating the color intensity so that the highest level of color concentration remains in the center and fades out along the edges (see Figure 2).
Using a make-up sponge dipped in blue make-up, lightly apply the second layer of color stretching approximately 1/3 around the perimeter of the skin reddening and extending outward approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch. (This will be the point of impact; most objects do not hit with full force-evenly.)”
