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.
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 ^^:
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.
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.
The lower lip maybe, but the upper eyelid no. Its the only actual flaw I can see and its so absolutely minor. The lower lid wouldn't bruise and swell without some action in the upper lid. Since the one eye is so heavily bruised under it should be bruised on the inner corner of the eyelid as well.
I agree, makeup is pretty well done. Usually the eyes are a huge factor in any beating. Usually blood shot or discolored especially since it looks like her right eye was hit. But other than that, pretty convincing.
Well, they're both pretty convincing that they'be been in a brawl recently, I'll say that. Of course, as a paramedic I've seen worse, but if I rolled up on them on the street I'd be be like "Damn who kicked your @$$es?!"
