A black eye: update

Anonymous

I have one. How do I cover it up? It's not the worst, but it's day 2 and it's still swollen and is now purple and black.

Liquid foundation and concealer only go so much. The black and purple still show. Is there anything better?

Update: dermabond is like magic! It was about $40 but it covers the bruise in one layer. My face is puffy on that side but you can't see the purple and black. I'm going to keep trying the potato peels and hope it helps it heal faster. I couldn't do they egg thing, it hurt too much.

Thanks for the help!

I tried just caking it on a la Tammy Faye but it cracks or something when I smile.

Ice it 10 min on and 10 min off for an hour. The discoloration you just have to do the best you can with make-up.
