Make it look like your finger has been sliced all the way through and the tip is about to slide off.
This is a recreation of a makeup I posted on Instagram 18 months ago. I've seen several explanations and videos of how to do it but wanted to share how I originally created it.
Big thanks to Freakmo for suggesting this tutorial. Check her out here
What you'll need to create this look is:
Nose and scar wax
Spirit gum or prosaide
Mix of brushes and sponges
Skin illustrator palettes or cream makeups
Blood (preferably an aged or dark colour)

I decided to shoot this tutorial from the same perspective that I see while creating work. Let me know in the comments below if you prefer this angle.
