Tell your audience that your eyes are itchy, so you must have pink eye, then hold out a Pink I. "But I rubbed it so hard, I got a black eye!" (sold separately). Also fun for use on hospital visits - "It looks like you've got pink eye!" Approx. 2 inches tall, 72 per bag, all pink.
ESTABLISH a makeup area in your home where you apply your makeup.
CAP or CONTAIN your hair with a headband or hair gel to keep it off your face and under your wig.
APPLY makeup starting with the lightest color and ending with the darkest color. Darker colors will cover lighter colors and outlining will bring colors together for a crisp, sharp look. Work from top to bottom (eyes to mouth) to avoid smearing lines.
UPPER LIP application has white or Auguste base, NEVER red or black (except for "specialty" mouth types such as Betty Boop or heart-kissie mouth). This is because your upper lip isn't involved in smiling, and you'll wind up having a scary "watermelon" mouth.
LOWER LIP application is red or black.
POWDERING: Always close your eves and exhale when powdering. Fold powder sock together and/or turn it between pats on your face to avoid the transfer of colors.
ALWAYS FOLLOW THE "THREE P'S"
PAT - Your makeup to smooth out streaks and even makeup application. POWDER - To set makeup and give it a velvet look. PRACTICE - To make you LOOK like the clown you FEEL like.
TAKE CARE of your makeup.
Keep out of heat or extreme cold. Use a different brush for each color. Do not share your makeup to avoid contamination. Keep makeup containers closed between applications and during powdering.
