How I create my ‘scar’…step by step

A few people have asked me how I created the scarring on my face; well, that’s super easy and really affordable . I took a kleenex tissue and separated it apart, then I started ripping it into pieces (make sure it’s not perfect, the more jagged, the better). I then applied a little liquid latex onto my face with a makeup wedge, and laid down the kleenex. I applied more liquid latex on top of kleenex and laid down another piece of the kleenex, followed by a little more liquid latex once again.

After it is completely dry; I apply a little foundation on top (not too much, because that can make it look unrealistic), and I then start stippling cream bases on top to create a ‘bruised’ effect (you can use eye shadows as well). The colors I stick mainly with are purples, blues, reds and to look even more gross; green.

After that, I take tweezers (or scissors – but please be very careful not to cut your actual skin) and start rippin through the ‘scar’.
Then once i open up the ‘scar’, I add some black in the middle, followed by ‘fake blood’, and VIOLA! – There you have it, a fake scar!

I hope this helps and I hope you try it out.
