It will heal; cover : Sorry to hear of your trouble within the family--i certainly hope it was an isolated incidence/accident. Minor bruising will likely heal completely without trouble, but will need time. Bruising appearance may worsen over 2-3 days, then should slowly improve. Make-up cover is easiest/fastest way to hide it until resolved. Consult doc if headache/vision trouble occur. Good luck.
