Clown Makeup Ideas
So here we are! Keep the hand on your heart and move along.
Basic and Easy Clown Makeup
Here’s the most basic and easy-to-do clown makeup is this one. All you have to do is grab the eyeliner, kohl, and black lipstick. You can also use black eyeshadow for creating points above and below brows. Put on black lipstick and give it an elongated shape using a kohl pencil. Here the model has created a collar area as well.
Super-Cute Clown Makeup
Cute and colorful clown. The most attractive point of this look is its color selection and inverted design. This cute clown has three color combinations – green, purple, and black for eye makeup, while lipstick is of golden shade. Here you have to design triangles on above and below the brows in right and left respectively.
Scary Clown Makeup
Here the darker color selection and white lens together make it look scary. Black eyeshadow with purple smoking is giving it a killer look. The darkest purple lipstick shade is making it look somehow creepy, while the embellishment on the points gives it a dramatic look. I guess the model has used the foundation of lighter shade for bright skin.
Halloween Clown Makeup
You should never go wrong with Halloween makeup, so here’s the easy to do makeup idea. You need eyeliner, eyeshadow, and maroon lipstick. Use black eyeliner to create the points above and below the brows. Smokey lip shade will give you the perfect Halloween face.
Comic-style Pennywise Makeup
Have you ever seen a joker in a comic book? It won’t exactly look like this, but the graphics effects are the same. Here artists have tried to achieve that look. The main color palette is blue and black. Red lipstick and nose tip with white highlights make it look come straight out of a comic book.
This is a piece of art! Here the makeup artist has depicted the two most common emotions in an amazing way. Whether it is about finishing or color selection, both are intriguingly amazing. Here you have to create a sad look, and what can express better than a teardrop? And for the happy side, the color selection has expressed it well.
Traditional Clown Makeup
When looking for clown makeup, it was obvious for us to select the traditional look. It is pretty hard to do the exact same clown makeup but we can always spruce it up with joker clothes and similar makeup. Here the model has created a look with bright eye shadows, red glitter lipstick, nose tip, and kind of jester’s eyes with eyeliner and kohl.
It’s time to go colorful. Choose the brightest shade of rainbow colors and paint them on your face. Here the model has painted her neck in colored stripes making a collar and jester eyes with eyeliner. The forehead part is covered in colorful embellishments.
Black and White Clown Makeup
Let’s go back in time with black and white clown makeup. The makeup artist has shown her skills by creating an amazing clown look. I would rather say it’s cute and expressive. The inverted eyebrows and itty-bitty teardrop is expressing a lot of things. The lip shade is done precisely in the mid part.
Neon Clown Makeup
Here the influencer has out-did herself by creating a look that isn’t only neon-y but she also colored her hair in one of the colors. Trust us, it takes a lot of guts. You will need to paint the heart above and below the brows with eyeliner. The pretty pink lipstick with a black outline is giving the comic feel as well.
Glittery Clown Makeup
You might have not thought about going for glittery makeup. The one here is scary as well as something unique. You have to get the red glitter and paint nose tip and jester’s eyes. The lipstick used here is also glitter but to equalize it with the entire look the smoking effect is given with black eyeshadow.
Joker Makeup Ideas
Clown makeup ideas will definitely have a joker makeup on the list. Why? It is an iconic character in Hollywood. Besides its negative role, the audience has showered much love on him. Creating this look is a bit tricky but there’s no harm in typing.
First paint your face white, then create pointed triangles above and below the brows with blue eyeshadow. The next step is to create the fake red eyebrows on the top of the forehead and put on elongated red lipstick. The last step is to paint the nose tip.
The simplest and easiest of all is the jester makeup look. All you have to do is eye and lip makeup, that too with black color only! Use black eyeliner to create the jester eyes and black lip shade for the elongated lips. Do the smokey eyeshadow with black and grey color.
Unveiling Pennywise Makeup
Show the true colors with pennywise makeup but in an unveiling pattern. Confused? Look at the image you will see the model revealing her pennywise version. Don’t worry, it is an illusion. But isn’t that great? She has perfectly depicted the look with white face paint, red lipstick, and yellowish-green lens.
Smokey Eye Clown Makeup
Here the emphasis is on the eye makeup. The smokey eye is known for its darker and perfect blend of two colors. Creating the same effect on any part is challenging, but if you know how to do it, you are at a benefit.
Pastel Clown Makeup
Rather than going for bright colored makeup, consider pastel shades. Look at the image above, how the model has used pastel crimson pink for a pennywise smile and a mixture of shades for eye shadow. Simple and soothing!
Trendy Joker Makeup Idea
This one is the perfect joker look with green hair and lens as well. From face paint to eyebrows, lips, and even the outfit. You need to observe closely to create such an amazing look, hats off to the artist.
Red Clown Makeup with Painted Collar
Red and black are indeed scary colors. The above image is beautifully creepy to look at. For this look, you have to gather black and red color eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, and face paint. Create a jester face with an entire red shade. Now as for the collar use face paint.
Outlined Clown Makeup
The artsy clown it is! Don’t want to go too much with the makeup? Use your artistic skills and create an outlined clown makeup. It isn’t as simple as it looks, but practice will make you perfect. The glossy lipstick and nose tip is creating a wonderful outlook.
Clown Skeleton Makeup
Halloween and Skeleton are related to each other. There’s no fun without a few skeletons here and there on the hallow’s eve. For creating this look, you have to use contour to highlight the cheek, jaw, and chin bones. Eyes will be of the jester, while lip will be of the skeleton.
Beautiful Clown Makeup
Last but not the least, let everyone praise the beauty with scary looks. Who said you can’t look beautiful with clown makeup? Look at the one in the picture, isn’t she amazing? That cute heart-shaped nose tip is looking too charming. Enchant everyone at the party with your beautiful looks.
