Scary Clown Halloween Makeup Tutorial by BeautifulYouTV

Scary Clown Halloween Makeup Tutorial by BeautifulYouTV


Last time, our friend Karina, a.k.a. BeautifulYouTV on YouTube, created a fun and family-friendly Minions face paint design to pair with our Minions costumes. Check out that link if you haven’t already seen it. It’s adorable, we promise.

Today’s Halloween makeup tutorial is a little bit more extreme. We challenged Karina to create a scary clown makeup look, and here’s what she came up with: peeled-back skin and stapled flesh expose the facial muscles where red clown makeup should be.

Simply put, this Halloween makeup tutorial is proof that the right makeup can make or break a costume look. Who would have thought that an ordinary rainbow clown wig could be turned into something so terrifying with just three colors of makeup? Learn how to re-create this look and dial up the fear factor on your own creepy clown costume with Karina’s step-by-step video tutorial:

Hello, beautiful! Today I’m going to show you how to create this scary clown makeup for Halloween, or any other costume party.

I’ll start off my look with primer in order to prevent the makeup from creasing.

Next, I outline the main features of my clown with the help of a black eye pencil.

Here comes the most natural step for this look: the white face. I apply Cinema Secrets clown white color I got from, and wow – I have to tell you that this is the best white foundation that I have tried so far.

Using red paint, I fill in the eye space. I did not go onto the lid area, as I’ve reserved this space for the black eye shadow.

Speaking of the black eye shadow, I use it to create the black and smoky eye, as well as to create a bit of shading on the red area.

In order to complete the black smoky eye, I add a bit of black gel eyeliner onto the water line.

Using the same white cream color that I used before, I fill in the clown’s teeth.

Next, I add some dark shades to the teeth.

I finalize the mouth by adding red and black cream colors to the look.

In order to hide imperfections I did while drawing, I outline the teeth and eyes with a black paint.

Using a common black eye shadow, I begin to create wrinkles all over my face. I first create a barely visible line, and then deepen it by adding more color to it. I do a bit of blending where needed.

I move on to the nose. Using the black eye shadow, I add some shades, and using white cream color, I add a light reflection line. Last but not least, I draw some staples and apply a clown wig I, again, got from

And, we’re done! Thank you for watching, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. All products used are listed in the video description.
