Mello Scar Makeup Tutorial

By gw33t3r-love

AND NOTE: In the manga and anime, Mello's scar DOES NOT travel like a crazy thingy down to his shoulder, HOWEVER A LOT of people put the scar going down that far, so we did that version of the scar because it looks looks more like a big ass scar. So yes. you don't need to do the shoulder part, but we did. So yeah. It's really up to you!


So, after I put up my pictures of the Mello scar makeup I applied on myself, ~Plush-Mello asked me how to do it, and I thought "Hey...I'll make a tutorial!"

And here it is!

AS A NOTE: This makeup tutorial does NOT include using liquid latex, which I know some people use when they are applying the scar makeup for Mello. I used makeup exclusively, and my Mello (~BloodyHell13) got asked all night if the scar was real.
This method makes it look real and gets the point across just fine.

As a bonus, I threw in a few pictures of us all Matt-and-Mello-ed out. X3

I hope it helps...I tried to put as much info in there as I could in the simplest way possible.

Tell me what you think, and if you have any questions or comments, ask away!

Also...I'm sorry if there are any spelling mistakes.

THANKS! I hope ya like it!

Thanks! I saw this, and I Was wondering, how did Mello get his scar? If it's in the manga, please don't tell me, I haven't finished yet. :)

I just started watching the anime yesterday night and I'm on episode 16. >.< Oh gosh I'm dreading the scene right before I meet Near and Mello. (You know what I mean, right?) I teared up in the manga, I can't imagine what it'll be like in the anime. I'll probably :iconcryforeverplz:.

It's pretty traumatic, yeah D: when I was reading the manga, I actually STOPPED reading it at that point. I went for like a year before I picked it up again because one of my friends was like "there's this character I know you're gonna like. You need to keep going." and I did. And it's true. XD

Oh, good. I just started reading it again because I love Mello, and I haven't met Matt (is it weird that I say "meet" like they're real people?) yet.

Could you post the make-up products you used? If you still remember them. Because I tried this and it didn't work for me, I'm pretty sure it was just the make-up, though. I'd really appreciate your help. <3

Aw man, really? Yeah, I can give you a mini list (since I still have all the stuff lol).

The eyeshadow that I used for a majority of the scar is really crappy 'The Color Institute' stuff that I got in a giant box set of makeup years ago. It works great, but it's not the highest quality makeup (I've used professional stuff since I made this tutorial, and I actually found that a combination of stage makeup (mainly ben nye) and glamour makeup (like anything you can buy at walmart or target or even sephora) works the best.) This is a combination of stage makeup, regular makeup, and liquid latex (which is kind of awful to get out of your eyebrows, btw. And never use it if you have a latex allergy): Me with CRAZY scar makeup!

The coverup is a CoverGirl coverup stick. It's essentially a liquid foundation compressed into stick form (like lipstick). The eyeliner pencil is also from The Color Institute. And I believe that that powder is CoverGirl, too...but I could be wrong (that's the one thing I actually used completely, so I can't check that.)

I hope this helped a little! If anyone's interested, I was also going to do a tutorial for the scar makeup I linked above. But...yes. lol Anyway, thank you and I hope I was a little bit helpful~!
