Johnny Depp’s legal team intercepted photos of her looking good and without obvious injuries after allegedly being beaten up by Depp.
A video of Amber Heard on The Late Late Show with James Corden in December 2015 was shown to the court, showing no visible facial wounds or bruises.
Heard claimed that the night before the appearance, she thought she was going to die when Depp allegedly headbutted her and tried to suffocate her with a pillow.
She said she had two black eyes, believed she had a fractured nose and lip, and that Depp had punched her in the face.
Heard claimed that her make-up crew had to apply makeup around the wounds and use “super heavy, red matte lipstick” to cover her bruised mouth for her performance on the James Corden show.
She said in her testimony : ‘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 could make an appearance.
‘I gambled and thought maybe I could pull it off, I had my hair and makeup team come. They worked around it, meaning worked around the lesions on my head with the 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 really 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.
Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez challenged Heard on a number of incidents in which she claims he assaulted her during cross-examination.
Vasquez went back to the 2014 Met Gala, when Heard alleges Depp assaulted her again and fractured her nose.
However, the following night she was photographed at an event to commemorate comedian Don Rickles without any sign of harm.
‘You should see what it looked like beneath the makeup,’ she added in court.
