ProColorRingTM Bruise Makeup Palette by Mehron includes all of the various colored Professional Makeup needed to create the different coloring of the stages of a bruise. Create realistic looking bruises with the Professional Special Effects Makeup of the ProColorRingTM Bruise Makeup Palette by Mehron, Leaders in Theatrical Makeup since 1927. New Trauma Bruise - Using the Bruise Ring and a sponge, apply a small amount of "Bloody Rose" to desired area and blend outward. For realistic effect, keep color and shape uneven since blood doesn't spread evenly around fatty tissue. This will give the appearance of the point of impact. A Few Hours Old- Apply "Burnt Maroon" color to center of the bruise area and blend outward. Always leave the center darker. To achieve the uneven color you need, use a stippling or patting motion with your sponge. At 24 Hours- After blending the "Burnt Maroon" towards the outside of the area, apply "Midnight Sky" to the center and along the outer edges since there may be additional bruising in this area. 3 Days Old- As the bruise begins the healing process, the color will become more greenish in hue. Apply " Olive Green" color to the edges and blend towards the center, since outer areas will heal sooner. 5 Days Old- Older bruises appear yellowish on the outer edges, gradually turning greenish towards the center. Use "Maize Yellow" for the outermost edges of an older bruise, "Olive Green" towards the center and "Midnight Sky" blended into the very center. Broken Nose- Follow steps 1-5 to create a bruised and swollen area around the nose. Leave a flesh colored area in the middle to create the illusion of puffy, swollen tissue. Abrasions- Abrasion effects can be made by using a small amount of "Bloody Rose" on a stipple sponge and lightly dragging the sponge across the skin in random streaks. A little "Midnight Sky" may be added to give the appearance of dirt or pavement
