Making your own Joker mask can be done at home in front of the mirror. The Heath Ledger role in "The Dark Knight" brought the character back to the limelight after Jack Nicholson donned it in the first Batman movie. The more relevant and modern version has been a Halloween favourite for the last couple of years, and it is very easy to make with a Halloween make-up kit.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Clean your face with a clean cloth and soap to remove any surface dirt that would interfere with the make-up application.

  2. 2

    Apply white make-up all over your face using your fingers. Completely cover your face with the white make-up.

  3. 3

    Use black make up to darken the area around your eyes. Cover the eye socket, eye lids and area under the eye to complete the effect.

  4. 4

    Cover your mouth area with red make up. Use your fingers to draw the red make-up out from each corner of your mouth.

  5. 5

    Use brown and black make-up to simulate a dirty and grimy look. Lightly spread the brown and black make-up sparingly in different areas. Try to make it look as authentic as you can.

Tips and warnings

  • Wash your fingers after each colour is applied to keep from mixing colours.
  • Do not get the make-up in your eyes or mouth.
