Clown Make-Up

Take Your Career to The Next Level and Learn to Apply Clown Make-Up from Professionals

Applying clown make-up in the correct manner, so that it doesn’t look like a lot of effort went into it, takes a lot of energy. Don’t be fooled by the intricacy and artistry involved in applying clown make-up. It takes a lot of creativity, inspiration and concentration, but when you get it right, you help bring the character alive, and children and families will be grateful for the hours of escapism and fun that they will enjoy.

When applying clown make-up, you will need a few basic supplies, including:

  • Professional white make-up base;
  • Brightly coloured cream liner clown make-up;
  • Make-up sponge;
  • Theatrical face powder;
  • Rouge; and
  • Powder puff, to name a few.

At Face to Face Beauty & Make-up Design School, we offer theatrical make-up courses, which include clown make-up classes and tutorials. Other theatrical make-up courses include introduction to body art, jazz age, animal face painting, restoration and eighteenth century make-up application, as well as Classic Greece, Renaissance and Elizabethan make-up application.
