You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different coloring and how she would use these to touch those up to be able to cover those.”
Rottenborn and another of Heard’s attorneys, Elaine Bredehoft, held up the makeup kit in court while talking about Heard’s covering her alleged bruising.
