Find the creepiest, ugliest, scariest clown online and go to town with face paints that dry. Use your imagination. This way you don’t have to spend a lot of money on costume materials. Be creative, when you create your costume with face paints, you can alter it and do ANYTHING you want.

I used Snazaroo face paint, it’s cheap and it will last the longest if you will be at a party or out for the night and can be easily touched up. You can add a creepy clown costume, and my wig was bought at a flea market for $1.00! This costume/make up is so versatile!

The best part was winning the grand prize for the Muse Beauty Annual Halloween Makeup Contest! I had over 1,060 votes. It was the absolute best feeling in the world. The prizes didn’t even matter to me, I just wanted to win! All my hard work paid off.  The hardest part about it all was staying up nearly 3 days straight to get votes for the big contest.

The funniest part was watching everyone with clown phobias freak out, and tell me how scary it was, and that it was now going to give them nightmares.

Other than that, my family and friends and even complete strangers were highly supportive, and rooted me on for my costume/makeup design to win! I cannot believe the overwhelming amount of responses I got, and how much support I received along the way.

With this costume/makeup I have won a free Airbrush Course, and an Airbrush Kit. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me on this journey. I am absolutely still in awe, that my own creation won something so large!

Basically, the moral is, if you can dream it and put your mind to it, you CAN do it! :)
