Halloween Tutorial: Freaky Clown

Following on from yesterday's skull tutorial, we've teamed up with Jamie again to bring you something a little more scary - this freaky clown face. Read on for the easy steps...

Start with a bare face and apply a lighter or white foundation all over, blending evenly for an almost grey look to the complexion. Jamie went for Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation (£32) once again, as it lasts so well on the skin and blends seamlessly for a really flawless finish.

Pencil in dramatic eyebrows and create a peak upwards at the start of the shape. Choose quite a dark matte shadow to do the brows, extending them down further than you usually would.

Using a gel liner like the Illamasqua Precision Liner (£18.50), draw a vertical line down through the centre of each eye lid; extend it all the way up to the brow and down towards the cheeks. Create a horizontal line along the lash line and out towards the temple.

Blend the lines out with a black eyeshadow like Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Obsidian (£15.50) - don’t worry about the result being neat, it only adds to the drama.

Use two bright shades of eyeshadow; Jamie went for KIKO 138 Eyeshadow and Illamasqua Fiasco Eyeshadow (£15.50) - use a shade on either side of the lid and blend.

Draw a heart shape on the tip of the nose using a black eyeliner, but don't fill it in.
Next, draw the outline of a large, teethy grin. Take the lips from the Cupid’s Bow to the middle of the cheek, making sure the corner of the mouth is arched upwards to form a sinister smile.

Draw jaggy triangles for teeth, making sure they’re pointed. Then use a red lipstick to fill in the nose and the lips, choosing a precise lip brush for best results.

To make the teeth look more realistic, use a white liquid liner like Illamasqua Precision Ink in Scribe (£20) to fill in the teeth and add a shine to the nose.

Use a gel liner again to fill in the back of the mouth, carefully going around the teeth and making a really black mouth. Then line the lips for added effect.

Even if you're not a makeup artist, this is easily done in just a few steps! We dare you to give it a try.
