Colourful Clown Makeup Tutorial


Hey goys!

Tired wearing your boring old ‘natural’ look makeup to work?

Ditch it today and try this vibrant clown makeup on for size! 100% guaranteed to be a talking point at the office.


There are a lot of steps to this but don’t let that put you off, there’s nothing complicated here. You can get away with just having the white and black facepaints for this and any colourful eyeshadows will do for the rest.

Keeps scrolling for a step-by-step guide on how to create this look.

Products Used


  • Sleek iDivine – Acid
  • Sleek iDivine – Ultra Matte Bright
  • Inglot Eyesadow – 50 (Red)
  • Maybelline Fit Me Powder – 120 Classic Ivory
  • Eyelure eyelash glue
  • Fake lashes (the bigger the better, but I just had natural looking ones on hand)
  • Dazzle Dust by Barry M – 2 (any pearly sparkly goldy fairy dust stuff will do, but you can do without either. )
  • Pack of stick on gems
  • Snazaroo paints – White, Black, Purple, Lavender Sparkle, Bright Pink, Blood Red
  • A makeup or facepainting sponge
  • Various makeup and paint brushes (make sure you have one with a small tip for detailing)


Ok, so I completely forgot to take a photo of actual step one before the eye bit, but I’ll go through the steps anyway so calm down, I’ll make it up to you!

Step 1

Wax your  eyebrows down (NOT OFF) with eyebrow wax or a bar of glycerin soap (because who the hell has a bunch of eyebrow wax lying around?)

Step 2

Apply white facepaint evenly over face and neck.

Step 3

Draw a large cat eye shape around your eye, making sure it is drawn above your eyebrow. Don’t worry if it ends up a bit wonky like mine, once its filled in it’ll look sound.


Step 4

Apply white shadow to the lid of your eye so the paint doesn’t crease.

Step 5 

Take a dark purple shadow and apply to the socket, trying to keep the line between socket and lid as clean as possible (which seemingly I had difficulty with)

Next, apply a lighter Purple above the darker purple.

Apply a nice blue above the light purple – we’re making a rainbooow!


Step 6

Pick your favorite green shadow and apply above the blue


Step 7

Continue to add colours (yellow, orange, red) until you have a bunch of rainbow crap on your face.

Sidenote: I applied the Brights first and added the corresponding Acid colours on top to make them look a bit brighter)


Step 8

Whack on some crazy cartoon eyebrows with black facepaint.

At this stage you should look like you should have put on your makeup before you took that acid.


Step 9

Using a blusher brush and some hot pink eyeshadow, start underneath your new eye line and blend out in order to achieve that ‘anemic raver that just got pepper sprayed’ look.


Step 10

Line the your lids

Paint on some lashes on the lower outline of the eye and add some clown spikes. (whatever they are)


Step 11

Apply Dazzle dust all over the lid and the rainbow part of your eye (because glitter).


Step 12

Give your nose that frostbitten and about to fall off look by painting it purple.

I used sparkly lavender as a base and shaded with purple and black. Don’t forget your white dot to make it look all shiny and shit.


Step 13

Fill your lips in with pink facepaint, add white on top once the pink is dry

Use your blood red paint as you would lip liner to line yours lips, taking it slightly past your natural lip line.

Now use the red to extend your lip parting with some creepy ass clown streaks.

Congratulations! You now look as mental on the outside as you already were on the inside.


Now go down to Tesco and freak out some old people.


Or go be a Juggalo and be straight up clownin’


Peace out.

Masquerade Ball – Lace Mask Painting

I went for smokey eyes and bold red lips for this look but you can pretty much do whatever kind of makeup you want to start, but I suggest you go bold everything. 🙂

Citrus Sunburst Look (Sleek i-Divine Sunset Palette, NYX Black Label Lipstick)

So I decided to treat myself to a few bits off and they arrived today. There’s a clearance sale on at the minute and I got the lipstick and polishes for dirt cheap, staying true to my bargain hunter nature:


CHINA GLAZE: Pretty crazy colours, but I’m a fan of lots of colour so they are perfect for me. Never used this brand before but I have the yellow, ‘Sun-Kissed’, on at the moment and I’m liking it so far. Turns a more muted pearlescent yellow when dry. The green is called ‘I’m With The Lifegaurd’

SLEEK: I am in love with this palette already. Lovely warm shimmery gold, copper and bronzey sunset tones. I don’t wear blue eyeshadow really, but I’d be interested to attempt an ocean sunset look, which is what I’m guessing the blue is there for.

NYX: I wasn’t too sure if this lipstick was going to suit me, I’m not used to wearing orange tinted lips. I found it on sale on for just 3euros and the reviews online were great so really there was nothing to lose. Its really smooth and moisturising and hallelujuh! – I actually love the colour! It goes really well with the colours in the sunset palette too, which is kind of a happy accident. This is now officially my favorite lipstick.

Products used:

  • Maybelline Super Stay 24h Foundation – 005 Light Beige
  • Rimmel Clear Complexion  concealer – 001 Ivory

The Haunting Horde of Halloween Hellions!

LOVE Halloween parties. It’s always fun to see your friends get dressed up and get creative.

This year we had:

  • giant spider webs EVERYWHERE (the room looked like the inside of a spider filled cave by the time we were done!)
  • lots of cool Jack-o-Lanterns
  • scarily alcoholic jelly cocktail (sampled by a few magpies before we got to try it)
  • pumpkin jar full of obligatory Halloween candy
  • garden graveyard complete with hanging skeletons
  • some friendly ghost armchairs
  • the typical gross Halloween games (bowl of spaghetti hair and eyeballs)
  • and a LOT of booze.

SO, I’ll leave you with some pics of us all out in the graveyard, a few of peoples costumes, and a few close ups of my pop-art zombie costume (inspired by Redditor Ssssamanta’s original look).
