Materials Needed:

  • cream makeup in white, blue, pink, red and yellow
  • black eyeliner pencil
  • liquid black eyeliner
  • makeup sponges
  • flat makeup or craft brushes
  • red lip liner
  • red foam nose
  • curly wig (optional)

Apply White Face Paint

Use a makeup sponge and brush to apply white makeup to just the eyes and nose. Feather the makeup around the outside edges of the face so it fades softly without creating a harsh makeup line (Image 1).

Create Colorful Eyes

Use a makeup brush and blue face paint to draw a half circle over one eye following the brow line. Use a brush to blend the blue and white (Image 1). Do the same thing to half of the other eye, using red face paint (Image 2). Next, add yellow face paint to the rest of the eyebrow and the upper lid and blend slightly (Image 3).

Exaggerate Eyebrows

Use a black eyeliner pencil to make a half circle above the child's natural eyebrow, then a line that follows the natural brow. It should be thicker at the center then thin out from there. Tip: The more arch you have the happier your clown will look.
