A clown is a big part of children’s lives when they’re growing up. One look at the white makeup and the typical round red nose, and you know you’re in front of a clown. The earliest clowns were entertainers who told the people of a town funny jokes and sang funny songs. Against the colorful backdrop of circus tents, clowns put on their amazing shows delighting both kids and adults. Entertaining people are what a clown’s life is all about, so today you can find musicians dressed up with a clown face, or friends wearing clown costumes on a festive day in town.
The face makeup is what identifies a clown, and the makeup can range from just a blob nose, to very dramatic thickly applied paint to create interesting looks. With a touch of artistry clown faces can be made up to show different expressions, from sadness to joy, to anger, and much more. Along with the clown’s made up face, the costume also plays a big part in making the right impression. The brightest colors, the baggy trousers, and large amounts of imagination go into designing the costume of a clown. Often, clowns wear wigs in neon shades to add more drama to their getup. Color is not all there is to the appearance of a clown, as it is the patterns also that make up the complete look.

Clown makeup can show all the shades of human feeling, and the mask-like frozen look can be also used to show dark emotions, like the figure of the Joker in the Batman series.
