Halloween Makeup: Melted Clown

Evil Grin

Don’t ask me what I was googling, but a while ago I came across what I can only describe as a melted zombie demon¬†painting by Dan Harding. I like to think I can come up with some slightly disturbing looks, but that painting took the grand prize for disturbing, so obviously I wanted to do a clown look based on it.

For someone who hates Clowns I sure do like doing looks for them, but then I also hate spiders and I have a horrible look planned involving spiders for Halloween too. I also can’t stand blood in real life, so I’m not sure what that says about me. Maybe I’m trying to face my fears through makeup?

Detail Close Up

Also, sorry in advance for the HD bad skin. I filmed when I was starting to come down with my flue and you can really see it in the state of my skin. But then again there’s no better way to hide bad skin than to make yourself look like a melted demon clown.

I'm Coming To Get You

You can find the creme palette I used here (**)

Apart from the lenses and the white eyeliner the only thing I used for this tutorial is the flash palette dupe. I still want to test it out a little longer before I do my review, but I can say that I am seriously impressed so far! You do have to be a little careful with the reds and pinks, they do have a tendency to stain the skin, but that’s a problem you’ll find with most red face paints and cremes in general.

I hope you like the tutorial (don’t have nightmares :)
