Do you need a quick bloody scab to go with your costume for Halloween or for an up coming Halloween party? Then look no further, I got you covered with this quick and easy bloody scab technique! Ready?! Let’s do this!

I start by making strips of glue onto plastic wrap. The length will depend on how big you want the bloody scab to be. I crinkle up the plastic wrap a bit to give the scab a bumpy look, but you could keep it flat to make a scar instead of a scab.

I put a good amount of Elmer’s glue where I want the bloody scab to go. Make sure your skin is clean and completely dry with no lotion or the glue will not stick.

I immediately add the scab to my glued skin. I will let it dry for a minute or two before I start applying the makeup. This is going to be creepy and cool!

I used this Halloween grease makeup I had, but I think any red and black makeup will work to.

I first apply the red makeup to the center of the scap. I had to use chunks of the grease makeup to get the right color.

I then add some to of the black makeup to the outer edge of the glue scab.

It is time to start adding my liquid concealer. Powder foundation with a small brush would work as well. I put the makeup on the outer edge and onto my skin.

I now take a make up sponge and start blending the skin tone color around the scab to my skin.

Here is my finished bloody scab. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! You can follow me for more style tricks and tips!
