To create this look, first of all I pinned half of my model’s hair back before putting cling film over it, acting as a bald cap, this is to make sure no hair gets into the latex. Using the cotton pad, I stuck it over her ear using the micropore to make sure no latex got into her ear.
I then went over the entire area with liquid latex and torn up cotton wool, going from the back of the cling film into the sides of their face and down part of their neck to create a vein like appearance and like the skin has grown over their ear.
When the liquid latex has dried, using foundation, I went over all of the rubber, before setting it with a translucent powder. I then used a red water activated paint on a sponge going over the entire thing in stippling motions to add irritation and make it look more like flesh. I then went in using a gel eyeliner into the grooves, this was to deepen them which added more texture to the piece before going in with some matte shades from TheBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette, I didn’t use any colors in any specific areas, I just did random stippling movements to add texture and depth, this also made the skin look more irritated and bruised like if the skin had actually stretched and grown. I then used the shades Matt Hung and Matt Johnson where the latex blends into her face to create a bruising effect.
I then went in using some fake blood on a sponge and did some random stippling motions again, this was to create the effect of some blood vessels being broken due to the stretched out flesh. Finally I used a matte red eyeshadow to go over the black eyeliner to make it look more fleshy and natural, well as natural as flesh growing over your ear can be.
