This Severe Trauma Deluxe Kit is absolutely loaded!
Before You Start: Your make-up should be applied in a clean, well lit area. Give yourself plenty of room, and arrange your materials neatly in front of you. If you are doing the make-up on yourself, make sure you have an amply sized, well lit mirror. Wear old clothes - making up can get messy! Make-up should always be applied to clean skin, so wash your hands and face and you are ready to begin.
Time Needed: This will require 30 - 45 minutes to complete.
Please Note: If you have any known allergies to any of the listed ingredients of any of the components of this kit, do not use that component. Select a shade or item from your dealer's stock that will give you a similar effect or serve a similar purpose but does not contain the ingredient to which you react. If any of the products contained in this kit cause discomfort, remove as instructed and discontinue use.
As you are laying out your make-up as suggested above, be sure you have all of the items listed on the front label panel under "Complete Kit Contains." Use of optional suggested items will be discussed below, as will costuming tips.

About Liquid Latex: Liquid Latex is a very versatile and interesting make-up item. This kit makes extensive use of it and will undoubtedly inspire a variety of new ideas for its use as you practice and learn.
Please remember: Keep liquid latex out of your hair and off of your good clothing. Any fibre liquid latex sticks to will be married to that latex forever! Eg. carpets, sofas, drapes, etc. Do your work with latex over a formica or other smooth, non-absorbent surface and use a protective smock or drape to protect your clothing as you work.
Figure 1: Drip a penny sized dot of Liquid Latex onto one of your latex Sponge Wedges, apply the five areas of liquid latex to the forehead as indicated. One, two or three coats as desired depending upon how thick you want the blistered skin to be. Reload the sponge wedge as needed; let the latex dry between layers. If you prefer, use the brush cap in the latex instead of using the sponge.
Tip: use the latex sponge for large areas, the brush cap for smaller areas.
Figure 2: Pinch the latex in the centre of each area and pull away from the skin just enough to create a good air pocket, just like a real blister. In order to achieve the popped blister look, tear the latex air pocket or cut with your scissors and then roll back the edges away from the centre of the blister. The latex will stick to itself quite easily as you will see.
Figure 4: As in the above figure, apply two coats of Liquid Latex to the other cheek. While the second coat is still wet, take a crumpled paper towel and embed it into the wet latex. Allow the paper towel to be as crumpled as you would like to achieve your desired burned, mangled skin effect. Coat this very absorbent paper toweling with 3-4 additional coats of the liquid latex. Next, apply an area of latex to the lower lip as indicated. Take a bit of cotton ball and stick it to this lower lip area.
Figure 7: Sponge on the Maroon Creme Foundation around the forehead blisters, around and on top of the nose wax, the broken boil and on various low lying areas of your burned / mangled cheek area. Apply Dark Purple Creme Foundation to deepen some of those low lying areas just mentioned. Apply the Thunder Grey Foundation to further deepen and shadow the low lying areas, and the under eye areas and anywhere else you wish to spread that dead, grey flesh look.
Use your Yellow Creme Foundation to coat the highlight areas of your cheek scarring. Use your Stipple Sponge with a bit of the yellow to stipple areas of jaundice around your other wounds. Finally, use your Red Pencil to colour in the insides of your forehead blisters.
Once everything is blended and looks as you wish, load Powder onto Powder Puff by sprinkling a small pile of powder onto the middle of the puff, folding the puff and rubbing the puff's sides together until the powder is substantially loaded into the velour of the puff. Using a gentle but rapid patting motion, powder deliberately across the face, one section at a time. Reload the puff frequently to avoid excessive "offsetting" of the make-up onto your puff. When the face is fully "set" you will be able to touch the make-up without any coming off.
Figure 8: Using a sculpting tool or just a popsicle stick, score a gash in the Modeling Wax on the bridge of the nose. Paint Maroon Creme Foundation into the crack.
Figure 11: Add Blood to the gash on the bridge of the nose. To make it look like you've lost a tooth, dry the tooth with a tissue - the drier the better. Scoop a pea sized ball of Black Tooth Wax out of its dish. Press the black wax into the tooth and smooth around the entire tooth covering that tooth completely. If any of the black gets on an adjoining tooth, scrape it off with your fingernail or a toothpick. Once the tooth looks entirely black, now you can lick the tooth and it will stay black until you scrape off the wax later.
Figure 12: Dab blood over the surface of your traumatized cheek until you feel you're sufficiently gory. While at the party, you may wish to really gross someone out by pretending to tear off your skin as shown in this figure - Yuck!
Costume & Accessory Tips: Since trauma, or gore make-up is used in so many different ways, your application will determine the suitable accessories. If you are part of a local medical trauma unit, making up victims and casualties for a training event, torn garments and old, disposable clothing will be quite common. If you're haunting a masquerade party, you could be anything from an injured GI in fatigues, to a screaming ghoul in a black robe. Consult with your local costume retailer for ideas aplenty.

I bought this kit to simulate injuries for first aid treatment and I wasn't disappointed. The instructions are easy to follow and I created realistic wounds first time. I am now going to expand this kit with similar products.
