Hello, my name is Roger Bennett Riggle, and I am a professional licensed make-up artist. I have been a make-up artist since 1985. I own a company called Faces by R & R, and we supply make-up, consultations, on-location shoot, make-up labor, and things like that through our company. So, we turn to fantasy make-up, and Halloween today, and we are going to shoot a series of make-up techniques, simple enough for you to be able to do, and to actually transform your face into a Halloween design.

In this next segment, we are going to show you how to make a very, very effective, but simple technique, to make a bruise. So, what we need to do is to make a bruise, are the following products. You can select three to four colors to make a bruise-wound. When something is hit, when you are hit with a fist, or you run into a piece of furniture or something like that and a bruise happens, the most immediate impact has a reddish, bloody color, and here we have a medium plum, and a dark burgundy, which would both work nicely for the most wounded part of a bruise.

Then, here we have a sallow green and a midnight blue. When a bruise happens, you basically have your reddest part in the middle and then it goes to more of a blue, bluish-purple color, and then as a bruise starts to heal, it turns a very strange, sallow green, yellow color. So, if you are doing an aged bruise, this sallow green would be good for the outskirts of the wound.

Now, you can also buy four colors pre-combined for you in wheels. This is a special effects palette made by the Ben Nye Company, thats N-Y-E. This make-ups made in California. Ben Nye was a very famous make-up artist for the movies. He did Ben-Hur and other large movies in his life. Here we have the four colors already pre-combined for you. This in fact, is a bruise wheel; it's a wheel for making your bruise effects. This is Bruises and Cuts, so, it has a bright red in it so, that a sharp cut would have more of a bright red color than a bruise which would have a more muted kind of red color at its centre, and this is Severe Exposure, thats a wheel for making severe burns. The products that we are going to need are these three to four colors to make your bruise happen. We also again, need the cotton pads, and the astringent to wipe down the face, so the face is nice and clean before the make-up actually goes on. Then we need a powder puff, this is a Velour Powder Puff, and this is a setting powder. This particular powder is called Neutral Set Powder, marvelous, marvelous, powder made by the Ben Nye Company. It has a slight antiperspirant in it, and it also looks white in its container, but it has no color. This Neutral Set Powder is made to set all bright colors. When we are using creams, you need to set the creams, because they are constantly creamy and wet. So, when you set them with the powder, they hold up for quite a long time for you. This is all the products that we need to create the bruise effect.
