Back to work: Lindsay was seen on the set of her new Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick yesterday
She requested to have her injuries covered up with make-up so she could quickly get back to work on Liz & Dick following her car accident on Friday.
And now the full extent of Lindsay Lohan's wounds have been revealed as a big bruise was seen on the star's knee yesterday as she resumed filming for the biopic.
The purple area of skin appeared to have been covered up with a heavy application of movie make-up, but it failed to conceal the full extent of the injury.
Yet despite the damage, the actress appeared to be in good spirits and walking around with ease. At one point she did however have a rest, sitting down to puff away on a cigarette.

Once again Lindsay was dressed-to-the-nines to play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie.
The star looked glamourous in a yellow sailor style dress with burgundy spotted necktie, a fur coat and some kitten heel stilettos.
Her hair was coiffed in a typical Taylor-style, a shorter curly shoulder length do.
Her day back on set comes after it was revealed that police confiscated alcohol in the trunk of the car she is accused of totalling on Friday, according to reports.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ the actress had a plastic water bottle filled with alcohol in the rented Porsche that ploughed into a truck in Santa Monica.
Fortunately for Lindsay, who is on probation from an unrelated incident, it is not a violation in the state of California to drive with an open container in the trunk.
Police told TMZ the bottle was found in the 'debris field' and 'scooped up along with other parts and placed in the trunk before it was towed away.'

The comments contradict reports from a tow truck driver at the scene who told the website the water bottle was confiscated directly from the trunk.
The actress, who was taken to UCLA hospital with her assistant after the incident, reportedly had no alcohol in her system.
Both women, and the driver of the truck, identified by RadarOnline as James Johnson, are said to have emerged with no major injuries.
Lindsay was back at work this week after the whole fiasco, reportedly refusing to allow producers to halt filming because of her latest personal drama.
Behind the scenes, however, her plan to put her legal woes behind her after a series of jail stints and probationary periods, seems to be unraveling.
Smoke break: At one point Lindsay had a rest, sitting down to puff away on a cigarette
Yesterday, reports emerged she could have probation revoked after lying to police about not being behind the wheel of the car before the collision in Santa Monica on her way to set.
The actress remains on probation in a necklace theft case, but is no longer being supervised by a judge or probation officer.
Speculation is mounting about what exactly unfolded at the scene of her accident.

According to TMZ, a law enforcement source said the Lindsay told police it was her assistant who was driving her black Porsche.
Eye-witnesses say both women hopped out of the passenger side of the vehicle.
When police questioned the actress' assistant separately, the employee allegedly put the blame on Lindsay, claiming her boss was in fact the one behind the wheel at the time of the collision
The Santa Monica Police Department is said to have discovered the contradiction when they visited Lindsay in hospital.

TMZ claims that the police will include the fact that Lindsay lied in their report.
Under California law, it is offense to provide false information to law enforcement.
That means Lindsay could now run the risk of getting her probation revoked from her shoplifting case last year, and may go to jail if found guilty.
