Learn how to make a fake cut appear to bleed from makeup artist Ciara Rose Griffin in this Howcast special effects makeup tutorial.


All right, now we're going to show you how to make the cut bleed. So I'm going to take my palette knife again, and I'm going to separate this cut a little more. There, it's separated, and now I'm going to take some stage blood, also a lot of different companies make stage blood, or you can make it on your own, but I like this Ben Nye because it's really liquidy and oozy. I'm just going to put a little bit on my palette knife and stick it in the center of that cut. You can spread the cut with your fingers a little bit, to give that blood in there, stick that in there, and it will naturally start to drip out. And whatever way you want the blood to flow, you can just changed the way of your arm, yeah. So that's how to make a bleeding cut.
