Cute Killer Clown Makeup

Hey there !

Welcome to ‘What-Was-Supposed-To-Be-A-Cute-Clown’ makeup tutorial! This clown makeup really started off as a harmless clown : I gave her a pretty little red heart nose and a luscious lollipop… No yellow and sharp teeth, no blood… I just wanted to do something different from Pennywise (at least I thought I did).

With the “It” movie coming out this fall, the nightmarish clown from the Stephen King novel had been aaaaall over instagram and youtube and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. (Yet). 

So I went for a cute clown instead. And I loved it. For about what… 2 seconds? Then I stared again at myself in the mirror and reckoned I looked way too nice and innocent and my makeup lacked a little bit of creepiness  (and blood, let’s be honest). So I put on my Darth Maul contact lenses and covered my chest in blood. Oh and I grabbed my favorite dagger. I only have one dagger actually but it’s still my favorite.

And so my cute clown turned into a not-so-cute killer clown. Sounds more fun, right? =D

I made the lollipop with cardboard, mehron paint and a red ribbon from last year’s christmas that was hanging out in the garage. People might think “girl why go through so much trouble and paint fake objects when you can just buy them at a carnival store or on amazon”. Well for starter, making your own props is cheaper. Then it’s creative and relaxing (at least for me). And every new prop is an exciting challenge ; I want my props to look as realistic as possible so I can keep them for future makeups. In reality I mostly keep them to decorate my house. I’m a little creepy.

Anyway, I hope you’ll like this makeup and will have fun recreating it !
