I hope you received my reply this morning, very simple. Used a bright blue pencil on already white madeup skin, (cream and powder), then softly draw on the veins, a little darker in some spots than others. Finish with setting powder.
When I did mine, it was an after thought, meaning my makeup was already set, and dry. Powdered and all. Also, the blue pencil I used was HARD. It cant be really soft (the cheaper pencils are sometimes softer). You cant draw the veins on to moist foundation, also, it should be sharp, and the pressure very light. Stick with blue too. Good luck and keep me posted.Ok maybe the pencil was not sharp enough, but I tried it and all it was really doing was smudging into the white foundation, not coming out right at all. Than after trying to powder it, smudged more and stainded the powder puff or whatever you ladies call it lol. Any tips?
I had to mention this. I'm not wanting to hurt anyones feelings, especially not Ladygrimm. I just want good information out there, and I understand that sometimes we get bad info from trusted sources, so please don't think I'm judging.I actually like the idea of blue liner the best. But red over purple would darken the value, just don't know if the actual color is what you want, it'll probably look like the color of a bruise, which could be cool too. Blood is blue until oxygen hits it. So for under the skin veins blue really is the best.
That's really interesting to know. I actually thought the blue was due to amounts of CO2 being carried from the lungs and the red was Oxygen going to the brain or something. I think this is a case of "a little info can be harmful." Good thing I'm not conducting surgery.It's an urban legend that blood is blue until oxygen hits it.
