F/X Fridays is coming to you live from the premiere of TEMPTU LA’s first Special F/X Workshop. Today we covered the basics that should be in every makeup artists’ kit — new and old bruise, cuts & abrasions, burns, and zombie of course!
For this blog installment, I put together a simple step by step for your most basic abrasion. This is a simple wound that you will throw on at a moment’s notice, something every makeup artist should have in their bag of tricks.
TEMPTU PRO TRAUMA Palette
Ben Nye FRESH SCAB
TEMPTU PRO Brush #1
Stipple on Prime Red from DURA TRAUMA Palette with stipple sponge.
Dip stipple sponge into Ben Nye FRESH SCAB and drag across skin where Prime Red was applied.
Using TEMPTU PRO BRUSH #1, add a bit of Black from TEMPTU PRO TRAUMA palette to FRESH SCAB for depth and grit. Go alongside FRESH SCAB with the brush to add contrast to the blood.
There you have it – a simple abrasion.
