The controversial defamation lawsuit between ex-spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is a hot topic for netizens online.
In her final court statement on Monday, Amber Heard took the stand again to explain how Depp had covered the bruises left by her alleged attacks.
The actress stated that she used a make-up kit to hide the scars left on her body.
Here is everything you need to know.
Amber Heard’s makeup routine to hide ‘traces of domestic abuse’.
Johnny Depp’s legal team challenged allegations that Amber Heard was the victim of physical abuse at the hands of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
Depp’s lawyer provided photos of Heard attending several red carpet events after Depp claimed to have hit him.
Pictures shown to the jury revealed no serious injuries to the Aquaman star.
However, she claimed that the bruises were not severe enough to be visible and therefore easily concealed behind makeup.
She further discussed her makeup routine to cover up the marks. He used a color correction wheel, which he called the ‘rotten kit’.
Heard continued that over the years, he learned how to use different colors to hide bruises as he progressed.
The 36-year-old star added that she first used a green powder to hide the redness. Later, when the bruises started to turn blue and purple, they switched to orange tones.
It’s interesting that AH has testified about “theatre makeup”, he used it as a “bruise set” to cover up injuries, but that’s what came up when “theatre makeup bruise kit” popped up on Google. It is used to CREATE bruises. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #AmberHeardIsALiar #JohnnyDeppAmberHeardTrial pic.twitter.com/mOrZ25qThG

Amber Heard slammed online for her alleged makeup routine
Claims that Amber Heard used a makeup kit to cover the scars left by Johnny Depp’s attack became the subject of conspiracy theory among Depp’s defenders. They were also sponsored by the cosmetics brand Milani.
During the opening remarks of the publicized case, Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, held a Milani makeup kit in her hand and explained how Heard mixed different shades to hide her brands.
Milani Cosmetics released a video to refute Bredehoft’s accusations. According to the video, the kit he showed off to the judges was released in 2017, a year after the actress filed for divorce from Depp. The video immediately went viral on the platform and has been reposted multiple times on other social media accounts.
However, Heard has addressed speculation, saying it’s not “exact” that he used it during his relationship with the 58-year-old actress.
Depp sued Heard for $50 million, while Heard sued him for $100 million.
One of the moments I was waiting for in Amber Heard’s statement was how she used her makeup to cover the bruises. She grabbed the Milani palette and said ‘of course it wasn’t exactly that’, said ‘bruise set’ and then used it after foundation and concealer 👀 pic.twitter.com/JCqtfEpfv8

Amber Heard just admitted to using a set of bruises on the podium. OOPS. Color correction palette and bruise set are not the same. And AFTER you apply foundation and concealer, you will not color correctly. #JusticeForJohhnyDepp #DeppVsHeard #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser #AmberHeardIsALiar
