Amber Heard Explains Using Makeup To Conceal Injuries Before Appearing On James Corden’s Show

“I did what I always did. I told people that I had an accident.”

Amber Heard has described using makeup to conceal injuries inflicted by Johnny Depp while appearing on James Corden’s show. In her trial, she told the court that her makeup team had to work around the wounds and apply heavy, red matte lipstick to hide her bloodied lip.

“I got worried that I wouldn’t be able to hide the bruising and swelling. I iced it all night and the next day checked in the mirror to see if I could get away with it, meaning hiding it, so I couldn’t make an appearance.”

The injuries were from a fight in which the actress said she believed she would die after Depp head-butted and tried to suffocate her with a pillow. The next evening in December 2015, Heard appeared on The Late Late Show to promote her film The Danish Girl and said she had to hide her cuts.

“I gambled and thought maybe I couple pull it off, I had my hair and makeup team come. They worked around it, meaning worked around the lesions on my head with hair spray because that stings.”

“They worked around the bruising by covering it with heavy makeup, heavier makeup than normal bruise covering makeup. I remember my lip was still bleeding and swollen so we did this thick super heavy matte red lipstick and I remember very well at the time that we had no choice in color and that was one of my favorite colors to wear. On this occasion we had no choice because we had to hide my busted lip. I did what I always did. I told people that I had an accident.”

Of the previous night’s violence, Heard told the court how Depp punched and dragged her by the hair.

She said Depp had told her, “you want to go now, tough guy,” before punching her and that at the moment, all she could do was just look him right in the eyes. She added: (He said) you want to go again, tough guy. I looked right up at his face; he balled up his fists, leaned back, and head-butted me square in the nose. Instantly (I felt) searing pain; it’s one of the few memories I have of physical pain, searing pain.”

However, this comes as Heard detailed how Depp s*xually assaulted her with a liquor bottle. So far, her testimony has been branded by Depp’s attorneys as the performance of her life.
