Make-up for Joker Cosplay?

Recommended Posts

Just this last September, I cosplayed as the Joker for comic-con.  I used regular grease paint and Snazaroo face paints.  However, I soon found out that wearing a lot of grease paint is 1} very uncomfortable (my face was tickling like crazy!) and 2} the stuff smears rather easily.  This would be okay if I was going for the messy Heath Ledger look, but I was going for the classic comic look (I'll post pictures down below for reference.)  

 

I'm planning to go to comic-con again this coming spring, and I was wondering if you guys might be able to help me figure out what make-up to use to make it both convincing and comfortable to wear.  I did a little bit of research online, and I'm thinking of using powder makeup because it looks natural on the skin.  Overall, I want the skin color to be similar to Jared Leto's Joker, more pale than just flat out white, but still white enough.  I also want make-up that won't crack either.

 

I'm also wondering what hair dye I should get.  I kind of want my hair to be a bright candy green, something that really stands out.  The dye I used last time wasn't exactly what I wanted.

 

What would you guys suggest?

it doesn't matter what you paint your face with, it is always going to be uncomfortable, especially on stage. I felt like my face is dipped in boiling chocolate when I used to perform on stage. I have heard of a few homemade solutions. But, not sure whether it will fade or wear off while you are performing.

Please share the images by the way.

    • Hi,  I have pale skin and freckles and find it hard to figure out which type of concealer and/or foundation I should use. On top of that, I blush quite easily and would feel more comfortable if it didn't show through my makeup. That would make me feel a lot more confident. Any advice? Thanks!! Kristen
    • Thank you❤And I like grey too. It's so mysterious!
    • Your skincare routine should involve the following  1. CLEANSE- Thats the main part of any routine. Cleanse two times a day-once in morning and other in evening. 2. MOISTURE- The key to any healthy skin is by moisturizing it daily. ,  3. PROTECTION AGAINST THE SUN- Protection against the sun is the most important for oily skin. I would recommend you to use  water-based sunscreen as oil based sunscreens make you look greasy. And the do's other than this -Remove makeup before going to bed Keep your skin and body always hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables that are highly rich in water.
