Melanie testified on Wednesday that she covered up Amber’s bruises before her 2015 appearance on James Corden’s Late Late Show. “I just did makeup, just a little thicker,” she added, according to Hollywood Life. We used a somewhat heavier concealer to hide the discoloration or bruises, one with a peach undertone that I would not typically use on Amber, but peach cancels blue, so I used it beneath the eyes.
“Though Amber normally wears a red lip, it’s one of her defining looks, I recall talking to Amber about how we had no other alternative that night except to use a red blood… a bright red lipstick to ensure we could conceal the lip damage” Melanie admitted in court that working with Amber was “extremely consuming,” so she opted not to continue working with her.
