Ok, my hubby decided this year for the Halloween contest at our campgrounds, our family (2 adults and 4 kids) should dress up as the "Evil Clown Family" due to our love of ICP (Insane Clown Posse) My problem is, I can't wear the normal halloween greasy makeup. Are there any good recipes for home made makeup that is not greasy? My sister said she sometimes uses kids poster paint but it can get flaky.... Maybe there is a better (not too expensive) make-up that is NON-greasy? Our halloween party is Sept. 22 so we don't have much time to get ready...

On a sorta related note - Did you know Violent J and Shaggy started painting their faces with shoe polish when they first started out and were really broke? Now they mail-order KRYOLAN Professional Makeup http://www.kryolan.com

BTW, if you have ever done a Jugglalo/ICP costume before (even just for a concert  Wink ) please feel free to post pics and any tips you may have, this is a first for us!

Thanks for any help!!!!

I'd recommend using Paradise Blend AQ by Mehron.  It comes as a cake that you put on like watercolor paint.  Unlike other add-water cakes, though, this stuff is SUPER high pigment.  It worked better for me than actual Clown White.  And, it dries matte and doesn't smudge, so you don't even have to worry about powder setting.  Lastly, it washes off with pretty much just water.  If you take a look at my av pic, that's what I used for the white.  The black is from Ben Nye, and the red is Mehron ColorBlend Stick.  The last two are cream makeup, but not greasepaint.  However, I'd still recommend the Paradise AQ for you.

Also, good luck with the ICP facepaint!  Evil Clown is my main costume for this year, but I haven't done any test makeup yet.  Once I do a test run, I'll send you a pic.   Grin
