Not long to go until Halloween now! Weee!
I decided to start a little early and have been playing around with scar wax for the first time. Since I didn't really know what I was doing or hadn't the foggiest on how it would turn out, I thought I'd start out with something that seemed fairly simple. So here we have a little chelsea smile action going on.
I just used my regular foundation and concealer all over my face for my base, and applied my liner and brows as normal. Once I had applied the scar wax and made the 'incisions', I set the scar wax with powders that match my skin tone before painting on liquid lipsticks to the insides of the wound, just to give it a nice solid blood-red base before applying gel blood. I finished it up by using a light matte brown eyeshadow to the surrounding areas, just to give some definition and more of a swollen and irritated look.
Taken with my iPhone 5 front camera so not the best of quality, and I did apply a filter afterwards to make myself look queasy and poorly but hopefully you get the idea of how this would look in person!
