Oozing blisters and raw skin - she's done it again! Caroline Healy presents this terribly realistic 3rd degree burn special effects makeup.
Begin by applying Liquid Latex, using a Cotton Bud to areas on the arm and hand and allow time to dry.
Cover all Latex using a Transparent Powder and a Powder Puff, then Brush away excess powder.
Then, using you fingers, pull parts of the latex away from skin and also make different size holes in the latex.
Using Maize Yellow and a Number 3 Round Brush, paint inside some of the holes created.
Sponge Bloody Rose over the latex and use a Number 3 Round Brush to paint inside the holes in the latex (don't paint over Maize Yellow.)
Next sponge Flesh-toned Makeup (use a tone which is similar to your model's skin) over the Bloody Rose on the outside of the wounds. This will create depth and the appearance of flaky skin and also to blend with models skin
Use a Number 3 brush again with Midnight Sky to paint the inside edges of the holes/ wounds and then add Burnt Maroon for a variation of colour inside the smaller holes. Also add small amounts of both colours around the wounds using a Makeup Sponge.
The blisters are created using 'Blister' by Vermilion FX, apply using a Spatula as it's sticky!
Finally, use Dark/ oxblood drying blood by Vermilion FX and a Number 5 Round Brush to paint inside the wounds, around the outside edges and also over parts of the latex so that the skin looks raw and fresh.
