Joker makeup steps by MMxVampire Joker makeup steps by MMxVampire
I wanted to show everyone the steps on how the makeup is put on. Special thank you to Amanda Matthews :iconvicious--mistress: for taking the photos with her amazing camera :) AND for letting us use her airbrush gun!

First step is clean face, hair gel back (makes bald cap go on easier) second step is to put bald cap on. We show what the bald cap looked like before we altered it, because when you get one you will have to cut it to fit you. After we cut it we apply the spirit gum on bald cap edges to his skin. Then we put the liquid latex over the edges to smooth out any wrinkles and to give it extra support to stay on. Then comes the prosthetics. Fake nose and chin is put on with spirit gum then liquid latex to give it extra support, just like we did with bald cap. Finally we start putting the white base of makeup on. This will take the longest. We use an airbrush with special liquid face paint for the airbrush gun. Multiple coats are put on. We also use other white liquid face paint and white powder for touch ups if needed. Then we add the red lips and black eye makeup. Finally we spirit gum the wig to the bald cap. (Hold parts of wig you spirit down for a bit until it is on good)

And that folks is how we do the makeup and put on the wig. :)

(this tutorial was used with photos of our practice run, we don't want to waste makeup and spirit gum before the event we have to go to, still looks alright, but full makeup, suit, finished everything will be seen soon. We just needed to see if things work...and it does!!! :)

Now to finish up some other things...

And here I was, thinking a noxious chemical bath was the way to go.
