Our Favourite Clown Halloween Makeup Looks

It’s that time of year again – where those neglected black, green, red, and purple hues in your fave eyeshadow palette finally get their moment in the spotlight.

Previously, you’ve rocked that classic Halloween cat look, attempted sugar skull makeup, and have most definitely turned up at a party as a half-arsed-looking vampire (we’ve all been there, don’t worry). This year, it’s time to try something that can be spruced up or down to your personal taste, all the while looking super cute…or super scary.

Whether you’re a Harley Quinn kinda gal or a die-hard Pennywise fan, we’ve got something for you. And, if the fandom world isn’t really your thing, we’ve got plenty of cute clown makeup looks to choose from, as well as easy clown makeup that is actually pretty scary.

1. Pennywise makeup:

This Pennywise tutorial is ideal for those that want to nail the balance between scary yet sexy. With this look, you get to rock a classic red lip whilst styling out a super smoky eye – what’s not to love?!

Get the look:

Eylure Dramatic No. 126 Lashes

$9.23 $10.26 (11% off)

Illamasqua Expressionist Artistry Palette

2. Traditional circus clown makeup:

An iconic and unmistakable style. @aaliyahjay combines high-shine shimmers with bold shapes to create a simple yet effective look that will have you taking selfies all night long; bonus points if you dedicate yourself to painting your neck and chest, too.

Huda Beauty The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette


Maybelline Tattoo Studio Smokey Gel Pencil Eyeliner

3. Candy clown makeup:

Halloween meets Katy Perry’s California Gurls music video. If you’re a girlie-girl and have some serious time and patience on your hands, this is for you. While we have you sorted for all of the pink and purple eyeshadow shades, you may want to pop down to your local Walmart for those sprinkles…and we wish you all the best in removing it once you’re done!

Get the look:

Maybelline Superstay 24 Matte Ink Lipstick

$14.08 $16.58 (16% off)

4. Easy clown makeup:

Eyeliner? Check. Red lipstick? Double check. You’re all good to go!

Get the look:

Stila Stay All Day Matte Lip Color

$20.91 $26.13 (20% off)

Huda Beauty Life Liner Quick 'N Easy Precision Liquid Liner


5. Harley Quinn makeup:

We know, this look has been done to death – but there’s a pretty good reason for that. Harley Quinn (aka Margot Robbie) is a bit of an icon, and if we can recreate her legendary look whilst going IN with the pink and blue hair dye, then of course we’re going to obsess over such a look.

Get the look:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Alyssa Edwards Palette Limited Edition


6. Scary clown makeup:

Sick of the cutesy, sweeter-than-sweet Halloween tutorials? Well, this one’s for you. If you’re actually wanting to scare people this year, then be prepared to dedicate a lot of time and effort into creating this masterpiece. It may take you all afternoon (and multiple YouTube videos) but trust us, the result is worth it.

Get the look:

SUVA Beauty Hydra FX

$12.92 $16.14 (20% off)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color


7. Psychedelic clown makeup:

Taking inspiration from the Jigsaw doll, this trippy look will require a steady hand and a lot of white face paint. But hey, at least the hair is easy to do!

Get the look:

L.A. Girl Pro.Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation


Inglot Cosmetics Freedom System Eyeshadow

$3.56 $6.48 (46% off)

8. Cute clown makeup:

Not a fan of the heavy black and purple shades that Halloween usually brings out? Make your clown Halloween makeup a little girlier by using mainly white and pink hues. Pink is the new black, after all…

Get the look:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Singles


Florence by Mills What's My Line? Eyeliner


9. The Joker makeup:

Loved by both men and women alike, Jared Leto’s take on the Joker has us reaching for the fake tattoos and ultra-fine liquid eyeliners. Temporary green hair dye is a must for this look.

Get the look:

Maybelline SuperStay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick

$13.71 $16.14 (16% off)

Huda Beauty Khaki Haze Obsessions


10. Sad clown makeup:

Get the look:

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color

11. Colourful clown makeup:

Not all Halloween looks have to be dark and dreary, not where Wesley Benjamin Carter is concerned at least. Go wild with the face paints and hair dye to discover a new type of clown makeup that we guarantee will be taking over Instagram.

Get the look:

By Beauty Bay Bright Matte 42 Color Palette


12. Glam clown makeup:

Hands up if you shamelessly love glitter? Yeah, us too. Luckily, Pinterest has not failed us when it comes to delivering a range of glitter-inspired clown makeup tutorials. This pink and black look is to die for, literally.
