Killer Clown Halloween Makeup

I’m back with another Halloween tutorial! This time I’ve decided to do a Killer Clown Halloween makeup. This look is fairly easy, and all you need is a simple basic face paint along with some artist brushes. For this tutorial, I used Wolfe FX Face painting palette called Hydrocolor Essentials, which are water activated. Other water-activated brands that are easier to find in Canada include MAC Pro Chromacake (can be found on their website or MAC Pro store at Bloor, Toronto), and Snazaroo face paints which can be found in most Art Stores (Curry’s, Michael’s).

Even though water-activated face paints are easy to use, they can also be easily removed. So, be very careful if you like to lick your lips or if you’re going to drink a lot of liquid while wearing this makeup. Also, please note that certain colors are not recommended to be used near the eyes, esp. those with red and orange dyes.

A trick to make the face paint stays well on the skin, and not crack is to dip the brush very lightly into water. Try not to cake on the face paint, the thinner the layer, the less likely it’ll crack. For this Killer Clown look, I didn’t want a smooth white face since why would a killer pay so much attention to their white base anyways, right?! So, don’t worry about the imperfect and streaky white base since it’ll add a bit more to the character.


  1. I applied White face paint all over my face, and on my neck.
  2. Using a Black face paint, I created some evil looking brows.
  3. With a red paint, I created a diamond shape on my right eye. As well as a round shape on my nose.
  4. I created a huge smile on my face, and the outlines of teeth using a Black face paint.
  5. Add details on the teeth by adding light brown, then dark brown at the edges of the teeth. I also added some cracks on the teeth.
  6. Add some scracthes, blood splatter, dirt splatter all over the face for added effect.

The pictures above are pretty self explanatory, I think. If you have any questions/inquiries feel free to comment or message me.

Halloween – 3D Spider Face Painting

Today’s tutorial is a good option for a last minute Halloween makeup idea! If you still haven’t decide what to do for Halloween, you can try to do this quick 3D Spider Face Painting look! Let me tell you that I have no background whatsoever in Art, and I managed to complete this look in about 20-minute. It’s fast, easy, and you don’t need many tools to create this 3D spider. You can also do it anywhere on your face/body. Actually my sister wanted me to do this on her face for Halloween when I showed it to her. So, there you go! A last minute Halloween idea without the need to wear any costumes!

So, I googled “Black Widow Spider” and also “realistic spider tattoo” to be used as reference for this look. You’ll see a tons of images on the web, so just pick one you like, and put it in front of you when you’re doing this. It’s a lot easier to create this look when you have a visual right in front of you.

All you need for this tutorial is:

  1. Image of spider (or tattoo)
  2. Brown eyeliner or eyebrow pencil (optional)
  3. Black liquid pen eyeliner – the easiest to work with. Try to find a pen-type liquid eyeliner so you can use it like you would use a marker.
  4. Red face paint or lip liner or lipstick
  5. White face paint or eyeliner
  6. Black pencil eyeliner

For brands I used, please check out the list of products at the end of the tutorial.


1. I began by sketching out the outline of the spider on my arm using a brown eyebrow pencil.

2. Using the same brown pencil, I also sketched out where the shadows of the legs and body going to be. Make sure the “shadows” are thinner (use less pressure on the pencil). This way, you won’t mistook the legs from the shadow.

3. Using a black eyeliner pen, I thickened the body and legs of the spider.

  • The spider legs have 3 parts – upper thigh, middle thigh, and the long thin thigh. These thighs are separated by 2 joints. The easiest way to imagine the way their legs work is to look at your finger, or just use your reference photo as a sample.
  • To draw the thigh, just create a long almond-ish shape (look at photo below to see what I mean).

4. I created the red marking of the “Black Widow” spider using a red face paint, then I filled out the rest of the body using a black liquid eyeliner.

5. I filled in the gap on the thighs using the same black liquid pen eyeliner.

6. I cleaned up any excess of the sketch from step 1 using Maybelline Clean Express Mineral Water and cotton bud (i.e. q-tip).

  • For example, you can see that I made the top front leg slightly shorter with the black eyeliner than my initial sketch using brown eyeliner.

7. You can skip this step if you want to, but I darken the shadow of the legs and body slightly using a black pencil eyeliner.

  • Make sure all the shadows of the legs touched the tip of the spider’s “real” leg where it touches your body. This will create that 3D effect, where it looks like the spider is on your body.

8. Lastly, using the tip of an eyeliner brush and a white face paint, I applied some highlight on the legs of the spider and 4 dots on the head, and VOILA! DONE!

Halloween #1- Monster Teeth

Alright! I finally decided to start my Halloween tutorials early this year! I’m super pumped since my parents are setting up a haunted house at work for everyone to enjoy! Anyways, you can be sure I’m going to be there with full makeup on! For my first tutorial, I decided to do a Monster Teeth or monster smile, since I always find difficulty creating these teeth. I’m not that happy with the result, but oh well, I think it worked pretty well.

One tip that I should keep in mind for myself, is to use water-based white paint for the teeth instead of cream face paint. I think the cream is hard to work with since it moves around so easily, but that’s just my preference. Also, funny story (not so funny when it happened), I was so close to finishing the whole look, and I decided to “fix” the two teeth on the bottom lip, then my hand slip and smudged everything. I had to remove the 2 teeth and just created 1 since it was getting late, and I had to go to bed.

Ok, let’s get this whole thing started!


1. I started out by drawing an outline of the smile using a black eyeliner pencil.

2. Using the same eyeliner pencil, I started drawing the outline of the teeth. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it can be as sharp or as big as you want. I drew the teeth at the back of the mouth a little bit curved in to create an eerier smile.

3. Using a small synthetic artist brush, I applied black cream face paint outside the teeth area.

4. Using a clean synthetic artist brush, I applied white cream face paint inside the teeth.halloween makeup tutorial

5. To create some depth, I created some smile lines at the end of the monster mouth, above and below the monster lips.

6. Using an angled eyeliner brush, I blended the lines down for the lines on below the lips, and upwards for the lines above the lips. This will create an illusion of depth.

7. For the rest of the face, I applied foundation and smoky eyes just for fun.

8. I also set the cream face paint using eyeshadow of similar colors – black for the black areas, and white mixed with beige for the teeth.
