Since a new Joker just debuted on the big screen, and it’s almost Halloween time, I just needed to recreate this new Joker look. Unfortunately, I’ve seen a lot of people do this new look already. So, I wanted to do something a little different and give my own twist to it. So, watch me transform in a very bling-bling Joker in this post and follow along with my tutorial. Let’s go!
Don’t be frightened! It’s just me. I don’t think I have ever looked more scary. I was pretty iffy about doing this look, since I’m pretty scared of clowns and seeing myself as a clown is kind of weird then. But the eventual clown look was way less scary than this photo. Just the fact that my eyebrows and top lip are missing is enough to give me the heebie-jeebies. Oh, I’m rambling again. Let’s start with the first step, which is covering your entire face in white facepaint. Nothing special.
Step two is adding the blue details to the face. This consists of two triangles above the eyes and two directly beneath. For this I used the colour Cola from the James Charles palette. After I achieved the desired shape, I blended the edges using Brother from the same palette.
For all the red details I first drew the shapes using a red facepaint. When that dried, I applied a layer of red eyeshadow (You’re Kidding) onto the facepaint and then I blended the edges out. Now your simple Joker look is done, if you’re going for the normal version. Well, if you want the normal version you shouldn’t blend the edges, but okay. This, to me, is the normal version. So let’s go bedazzle that face.
The final step actually just consists of bedazzling. I did this using red and blue rhinestones in different sizes, sticking them to my face using eyebrow gel. I tried to do it in a fun pattern that fit the shape of the facedetails. I think it looks quite fun! The hair is actually photoshopped, if you didn’t notice already, haha.
I loved doing my own spin on this iconic look and just playing with makeup for a couple hours. It was a bit weird seeing myself painted as a clown, though. I don’t think I’ll ever do it again, haha. I hope you enjoyed this look as well and got some inspiration from it. I want to thank you for reading and I’ll see you next time!
