For Part 4 of my Suicide FX series, I have decided to create a look for one of the most popular/common method, which is slitting the wrist. I really like how this piece turned out. I also found a new method of getting the skin tone without using foundation.
– Trylon Latex Liquid Rubber
– Cotton Wool Balls
– Maybelline New York, Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black)
– Rimmel London, Stay Matte Pressed Powder (Translucent)
– TheBalm, Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette (Matt Rosen, Matt Garcia, Matt Singh, Matt Hung, Matt Johnson)
– Smiffy’s, Water Activated Paint (Red)
– Fake Blood
For this look, I started off by sketching out and filling in the shape I wanted for the wound using a black gel eyeliner, I then went around the shape with liquid latex and cotton wool, smoothing it out as much as I could to blend into the skin. I also added some into the center of the wound for the broken flesh layers.
When the latex had dried I got rid of any shine using a translucent powder. Then I used a mix of brown eyeshadows and a neutral pink shade from TheBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette, and went over all of the latex and blended it into the skin. I then went over the edges with a yellow shade to help blending it together.
To create the bruised irritated look, I used the shade Matt Hung, a neutral purple to create some subtle bruising before using the red water activated paint on a sponge to go over the skin flaps to create more of a flesh tone before using stippling motions over the latex to create an irritated look.
And finally I added a lot of fake blood and held my arm in a position over the sink which it would be in to let the blood drip and run in an accurate direction.
