Setting Clown Makeup with a Powder Puff
- Press puff into setting powder. Use finger to spread out the clumps to create an event layer.
- Press onto face in sections (you get about 3 or 5 sections before you have the dip the puff back into powder).
- Fold the puff in half to fit into the eye sockets.
- The eyebrow area will take extra powdering.
- Check for any wet grease on your skin, and re-powder those spots.
- Let sit 30 to 60 seconds to give the grease a chance to absorb the powder, then brush off excess.
