eye white/Joker makeup recommendations?


I'm looking for something to do "eye white," as opposed to eye black, and I figured I'd go with whatever y'all have found to work for Joker makeup. My main requirement is resistance to smearing, smudging, and sweating.

Re: eye white/Joker makeup recommendations?


What is it for? I know a bunch of theatrical products. I might be able to help. With out knowing, I would say grease paint and do a sealer over the top of it. Maybe a bit of barrier spray before, and barrier spray/ setting powder after. The barrier spray will help with the sweat, and the setting powder will help from getting all over the place. Be super carefull as to not get the barrier spray in your eyes...it will burn like a mother. to remove just get makeup remover. Like I said, with out knowing what it's for, that's what I would do. Hope that helps-

Suiting up as Batman with white eyes instead of black. I'd like it to be self-contained--no multi-part applications

if you want it to be sweatproof you'll prob have to go alcohol-based but I wouldn't dare do that if I were you. there's a reason Heath's eye black was grease paint.

I'm guessing most use Mehron white, which is a grease-based creme. Heath had a few coats of alcohol-based Telesis Illustrator white (which provided the spongy look). visually, your probably better off with Mehron anyway. its thicker, covers well, and is opaque. it should hold up, but can smudge and run if not set. its typical clown makeup. just dont put any alcohol-based paint near your eyes :up

I believe Paulv used Ben Nye make up for his Joker costumes, and it always looked really good, didn't see it sweat off in any of the pictures he posted.

Since I'm just covering around my eyes, I wonder if their eye shadow would work just as well....
