10 Clown Makeup Ideas to Try This Halloween

Clowns are well-known for their dazzling smiles and larger-than-life personalities. But it takes more than just red lipstick and white face paint to create an iconic clown face. Clown face makeup is one of those areas where people think there is a simple rule (thick red lips and blue eyes), but in reality, there are lots of options. 

The clown looks we are sharing today will give you a unique appearance but also let others know that it’s you under the makeup!

  1. Pretty Clown Makeup 

After you put on everyday pretty-looking makeup, just transform your lips like that of a clown. Also, with a black eye shadow, draw those typical markings under your eyes.
