The Online Makeup School Is Live!
OK, so here we go. I have (had) a giant bruise on my upper lip and thought why not take a purple, mustache shaped lemon, and make some delicious concealer flavoured lemonade? I use this concealer technique more often than I would like to – I must sleep walk or something because I am constantly finding mysterious bruises on my appendages. So today I’m showing you how to cover a dirty big bruise, using makeup you probably already own – no specialist colour correctors here.

But I suppose I should address the elephant in the room – why do I have a giant bruise on my face in the first place? Well….*deep breath… I only went and got my bloody lips done. It’s something I have been thinking of doing for years, and if you have been watching my videos for any length of time, that should come as no surprise – I overdraw my lips in about 90% of my tutorials . I will be writing about my lip injection experience in greater detail after I get back from the wedding, and I have some decent before and after pics (I’m still a little swollen), so if you have any questions about it, let me know and I’ll try and answer them for you.

Here are some bullet points though

I am delighted with the results and have no regrets
It hurts
I researched my doctor for months, and am so happy to have found Dr Naomi, a fellow blogger, incredible injection specialist and all round lovely person
I am very swollen in this video so please please be kind and understand that I’m quite fragile about this right now so don’t judge just yet.

    I’m only here because I auctioned a mini m&m container onto my forehead and now there’s a huge circular bruise xD

    I know this video is 4 years old, but here's a more comprehensive list for Canada (I'm Canadian and didn't want to leave us looking like we don't care about domestic abuse!)

    You’re so lovely, so many people get all sorts of stuff done and lie that they didn’t they even get angry at people that ask.

    The fact you mentioned the sensitive topic and you offered links below for helping anyone, wow. I love you for that. I was just here to check out how to cover bruising from my lip fillers and that you’re so caring and sweet and went the extra mile, is just so wonderful of you. You’re amazing!!!

    Absolutely, it's your choice to do what you want with your own body. You covered the bruise so completely! And… your skin looks incredible. I seem to have a lot to say here – it looked like the bruise was blue. I thought you're supposed to use a complementary color to knock that out, which would have been yellow. But you used pink! And it worked but I wonder why…

    This was SO helpful! Thank you so much! I also have a bruise above my lip from getting my lips done and I have school tomorrow, so it would have been pretty embarrassing walking in with a huge bruise on my face.
