Time To Go Brown
Brown is a subtle color owned by Joker for his tie and shoes. Irrespective of what shades of brown you choose, all you need is to select brown colored tie and shoes. For perfecting your look have a close look on his wardrobe in movies.
The role of joker demanded different style to be adopted by people. Joker played by Mark Hamili wore a white strip over his black shoes. You may color the area over your black shoes to get that look.
Greenery Grows Overhead
Green hair is signature style of the joker. Whoever opted to play his role had to have green hair. Either you can buy it from your local stores or can buy online. A short green wig is something that you need.
The leader of the dark world must have his, own weapon. The knife is enough to give, chilly spine to his victim. Several backstories are supplied by him while holding the knife against his victim’s face. In reality, you do not have to carry the real knife. Several toy knives are available in the market place. Fake guns are also available in the market both off and online. Mark Hamill and few other used guns as their weapon while portraying the infamously famous joker. The color of your selected gun must be appropriate for keeping his character in mind.
Apply the white face paint or make up that suit you the best from forehead to chin covering up your ears too. Black paint or makeup must be applied around your eyes. Be careful while applying paint or eyeliner.
Messy Is Sexy
Smudge the liner or eye-shadow or the black paint over your both eyelids to get the Joker look of Heath Ledger. No fine line or appropriate shape is required. Cover up your eyelids properly and the edges must be little hazy giving it a dark and messy structure.
Previously Joker’s eyes used to look defined. To achieve that look go for grey and purple shadow. Apply the grey one on to the top lid and the purple one at the bottom. Use eyeliner for pointing your eyes.
For getting the looks like that of Jack Nicholson portrayal of Joker, draw fine lines on your eyelids towards outside of lids.
Apply red lipstick that covers up your lips. The lines should be vague and must cross almost a half inch to one inch across your face. Smudge the lines and it must form the demonic curve.
The lipstick must look hard and rough on to your face a smooth line is big no. Your smile has to be more powerful and scary rather than smooth.
To get, that sharp demonic teeth of Joker use prosthetic shark teeth. Whiteface paint generally makes your teeth yellower in comparison to your face. Though there is nothing to worry about as Joker’s teeth to appears to be yellow so do not worry.
