How to Apply Scary Jester Halloween Makeup

Batman's nemesis the Joker popularised the "evil clown" aesthetic and idea. Today, several metal bands and horror movie characters sport evil clown make-up and masks. Because clowns and jesters traditionally bring joy and laughter, evil perversions of these characters can be far more terrifying and twisted than classic monsters. Scary jester make-up is similar to evil clown, but with narrower, more sophisticated features.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Dip a damp sponge in white face paint and cover the entire face with white. Dab some extra paint on the eyebrows and slick them down.

  2. 2

    Paint two large diamonds over each eye with red face paint, using a make-up brush. The points of the diamonds should extend up to the forehead, and over to the bridge of the nose, cheek and temple. For a more gruesome look, paint blood dripping from one or both of the southern points.

  3. 3

    Paint the lips black, using a make-up brush or black lipstick. Alternately, use black paint to draw the outlines of teeth all around the mouth for a skeletal look.

  4. 4

    Paint enlarged black nostrils over the tip of your nose for a skeletal look.
