I found this while browsing through your gallery and had to check the description because for a few seconds there I seriously though this girl had actually been beaten for real. That's how good your make up is. You should feel proud.

I would love to know how you did the bruises, if you don't mind sharing? Mine never turn out quite right.

Really good make up. The scar through the right eyebrow is not real as well I suppose. The rest is really realistic which is something usually seen in your works. But this one is say... more real life like I guess ^^:

those dirty tears are such a fantastic touch. I would never have thought of something like that. O_O

The director actually asked for those! :) The title of the film is "Black Water", which all us crew thought was referring to the special brand of oil that's in it, but then he explained it's a reference to the last scene, where she's crying and her mascara makes her tears black.

Aaah. Good idea to keep for future make-up jobs and costumes! :3

Its actually rather good. A lot of people make bruises over the top and ruin the effect. The only way I could say it could be improved is perhaps if you'd split her lip as well to balance the side of her face and put some effect on the upper eyelid.
