These Bruises Wheels consist of essential creme shades that flawlessly replicate the shades that naturally appear in the skin throughout the lifespan of a bruise. Ben Nye's highly pigmented creme colors allow them to have maximum impact with minimal use, making this wheel an efficient part of anyone’s makeup kit. This compact wheel fits comfortably in any makeup kit or touch-up bag and has a clear lid that allows for easy visual access at all times. It’s ideal for use by Halloween enthusiasts, students, special effects, theatrical, and cosplay makeup artists.
To create a bruise using Ben Nye's Bruises Wheel, start by identifying the age of the bruise being replicated. Utilize the red tones to create a fresh bruise and mix in the purple tones to start aging it. Apply darkest colors where blood would pool up under the skin’s surface. Introduce blue to signify the peak age of bruising, while the yellow and green tones can be used to mimic the end of a bruise’s life cycle and indicate that the bruise is healing. For exceptionally subtle detail, mix colors with a small amount of foundation or concealer.
NOTE: ONLY the Master Bruise Wheel contains the shades Chrome Yellow and Blood Red. All Bruise Wheels contain the shades Sallow Green, Midnite Violet, Dark Burgundy, and Purple. Creme FX Bruise Wheel is available in .5oz or 1oz.
