Clown Face Paint
Every one of these Halloween face paint ideas has its own unique characteristics, regardless of what kind of look your child is going for. For a very quick but lively clown, skip the base paint. Make the eyes larger with white sponge-applied face paint, outlined with a black paintbrush or makeup stick, and green highlighter lines also applied with a paintbrush or makeup stick. Draw a big red mouth with a pad applicator and outline in white and black, with black-rimmed white dimples at either end. Top off with a polka-dot hat, a big bow tie, and curly green hair. This clown is anything but scary, but this is the real reason some people are so afraid of clowns.
