Elizabeth Hurley’s make-up artist is working overtime to cover up an ugly black eye after the British beauty suffered an embarrassing accident during a charity trip to New York.

The Austin Powers star jetted to the Big Apple on Tuesday for a four-day fundraising trip in aid of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

But the actress/model has been forced to wear layers of concealer on her face during her round of TV appearances – after a mishap in her hotel room on Wednesday night left her with a painful bruise to her right eye.

In a post on her blog, Hurley writes, “Back in hotel & just walked into the end of a clothes rail. Big bruise coming up by right eye. Not ideal for tomorrow’s TV.”

She later adds, “Thanks for all the black eye tips… don’t have any Arnica, trying an ice pack. It hurts!… Staring in mirror at large bruise. Make-up artist about to arrive. Will definitely get told off.”
