Amber Heard’s former makeup artist has testified that she covered up injuries to Heard’s face before her performance The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Melanie Inglessis testified Wednesday (May 18) in the ongoing $50 million defamation lawsuit that Johnny Depp has filed against his ex-wife Heard.

Appearing on behalf of Aquaman Actors in court Wednesday via video deposition Inglessis described covering the discoloration and bruising on Heard’s face on December 16, 2015.
“We covered up the discoloration and bruising with a slightly heavier concealer,” Inglessis testified, adding, “One that has a slightly more peachy undertone that I don’t normally use on amber, but peaches cancel out blue, so I have.” that under the made eyes.”
“Although Amber always has a red lip – that’s her signature look – I clearly remember that we didn’t have a choice that night [of the interview] than using a real red lipstick to make sure we can cover up the injuries on her lip,” she also told the judges.
When Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, asked Inglessis if she could cover up all of Heard’s facial injuries, she replied, “Yes.”

Inglessis also testified during Depp’s defamation case The sun newspaper — via an article that called the 58-year-old actor a “wife beater” — that she had used makeup to cover up bruises on Heard’s face before appearing on Corden’s talk show.
During her testimony, recorded last February, Inglessis also said she had told Heard a month earlier that she had “no interest in continuing in a relationship, either work-related or friendship-related.”
“It was always, it was always a conflict, a struggle,” Inglessis said of Heard and Depp’s turbulent relationship, adding, “There was always a problem.”
“It was a very consuming friendship…that’s why I decided not to continue it,” she said.

Pennington testified that he saw Heard’s injuries after a December 2015 argument with Depp and intervened in a separate altercation in 2016 at the penthouses they lived in just before Heard filed for divorce. She also said she feared for her friend’s safety.
