As the title says I have a real shiner and I'm going out on a reasonably dressy night out this weekend.

There's no way it can be covered so my temptation is to just keep tge rest of my maje up neutral, but maybe I should just go all out w red lips and do the other eye smoky?

What would you do?

Pirate eye patch?
Glam rock style glitter make-up star over the bad eye?
There are youTube make-up tutorials on how to cover bruises etc

If it's bad and you can't cover it i'd go quite light on your other make-up to avoid a zombie-prom-queen look - hope it gets better soon!

Ha, nothing so exciting I'm afraid!

I'd go neutral and front it out. I think doing a smoky eye might make it look worse than it actually is even if it's not on the affected eye itself. I think neutral is the way to go
