Psycho clown makeup tutorial

By  | 

Straight from the year of the clowns madness in the world comes this psycho clown.

2016 was the year of the clowns and to celebrate this we wanted to do a super easy but crazy clown for all of you clown lovers out there. The psycho clown is basically a friendly clown that is torn up and covered in metal shrapnel after the makeup has been applied. So in essence this is two tutorials in one. You can chose to stop when you are in “pretty clown mode” or you can go on and turn this into the psycho clown that will haunt people forever.

To make this psycho clown look accessible to as many people as possible we went with a simple water colour approach. A basic palette of water colours will take you all the way. Even though you will need some skin adhesive, a bald cap and some fake blood too, it’s still fairly simple supplies that should be available to everyone almost anywhere in the world. If you don’t have silver paint to use on the shrapnel pieces you can always you aluminium foil to create the shrapnel. That way you will have an instant metal feel to the pieces.

If you want more clown action be sure to check out our complete clown series playlist. We have quite a nice collection of clown tutorials for you with everything from sweet ones to murderous crazy clowns.

    No clown ever spends that much time on the eyebrows or has such detailed make-up. That's not the point of clown make-up!

    Something I want to point out real quick about being a "friendly and nice" clown. DO NOT use pointed shapes if you are going for a nice clown look. Use rounded shapes. All carnival clowns and kids clowns use rounded shapes, you only see points on bad clowns.

      I imagine she already had her make up on for the day to do normal day things and when its time to work there's no point taking it off just to reapply different make up.
