Duplicate this layer, apply Flip Horizontal and move it to the left:
Name them as "bandage 1", "bandage 2". With bandage 1 layer, I add layer mask and use hard black brush ( remember to choose brush with very big hardness, 90-100%) erase unecessary parts as shown below:
With bandage 2 I use transform tool ( hit Cmd/Ctrl+T) and choose warp mode to warp it around model head:
Add layer mask and use hard black brush on layer mask to clear unecessary parts:
Now we will group bandage layers to be easier to edit them together. Choose bandage 2 layer, hit Cmd/Ctrl+G to make a group with this layer inside.
Choose bandage 1 layer and drag it into new group. Name this group as "bandages". Change the mode of this group from Pass Through( default mode of group) to Normal.
On bandage 2 layer, create two new adjustment layers to change color and reduce saturation of bandages. Because the mode of group is changed to Normal ( no Pass Through) so these two adjustment layers only affect the layers inside this group ( bandages).
To make the bandages look more realistic, we will add shadow for them. Create a new layer under bandage group. Use soft black brush with different opacities to paint under them.
Now we'll add some blood to model face. Create a new layer above bandage shadow one ( and under bandage group) and set foreground to #c99ca1. Use soft brush to paint along the cheeks. This step is to create some blood stains:
Create a new layer and use glossy blood splatter brushes with color #970314. Use any blood one you like and paint on left model cheek and transform it to be fit.
Add layer mask to clear any parts you don't find suitable.
Create a new layer again and continue painting on the right side of model cheeks. I use a smaller brush and transform it as I usually do.
In this step we'll add some soaked blood effects on bandage ( blood from the eyes). Create a new layer above bandage group, name it " blood wet" or whatever you like. Use soft brush with color #979314 paint on the eye parts covered by bandage. Change the mode to Soft light 100%:
