We all remember the fun that we had when we were kids dressing up and getting our faces painted like clowns, but who knew that the fun could be had when we were adults as well?
Of course as adults, we don't always want the same sense of innocent fun as when we were kids; a brief glance around will tell you that there are plenty of happy and sad clown faces, or even evil clown faces that we might be interested in wearing.
If you are interested in choosing a slightly less innocent clown face to wear for a masquerade, keep some of the following tips in mind.
Remember that the more thickly and smoothly that you apply the white base paint, the more like a mask you will appear. The best way to apply base face paint evenly is with a sponge, so invest in some good paints and make sure that you cover up every inch of your face.
This will give you a solid base to start with, and when you look, you'll find that the effect can be wonderfully eerie on its own. If you like the effect as it is, simply color in your eyelids and a very small area of skin around your eyes and you'll have a wonderfully spooky face as it is.
If you are looking for something a little bit more elaborate, take a look at the harlequin clowns of Italy's Carivale. Start by adding accents of color around the eyes and on the cheeks.
You can use draw in a blue teardrop with white accents for a crying clown, or very plump and shining red hearts high on your cheeks. Think about what accents and what mood you are the most interested in conveying. You'll find that there are plenty of small accents that can get a lot of information across.
The clowns to be for Halloween are the wicked clowns Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. You will see a fair amount of Insane Clown Homies, Juggalos, and Juggalettes Halloween night and at parties!
You can also choose something a little more homey and normal looking; after you put the white face on, simply paint your lips up just a little bit larger than their normal shape and in a bright red.
You can also add a little bit of color by using a narrow black line to delineate circles over your cheeks or your eyes and coloring them in.
Think about coordinating with your costume; you may wish to think about colors that are slightly muted or blended for a more subtle effect.
Remember that anything on that solid white foundation will look wonderfully striking, so think about putting some accents over our eyes as well. On top of the white, consider some "flesh” toned paint that will give you a slightly more human look.
There's no better place to play and have a good time than a carnival, so the next time you step out, make sure that you have your face on straight!
