Blue eyeshadow (AngieCle uses Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Blue Crush)
Orange eyeshadow
(AngieCle uses Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Tequilla Sunrise)
Purple eyeshadow (AngieCle uses the purple shade from the Morphe 35P Palette)

1. Create a base layer with the white clown face makeup. Don’t worry about making this layer completely opaque or perfect.

2. Apply a white base to your eyelids so the colours will stand out. Apply all the way up to your eyelids and around the lower lashline. Set the base with a white eyeshadow.

3. Fill in your brows with orange eyeshadow. This will provide the base for the orange eyebrow hair you will stick on later.

4. Apply blue eyeshadow to one eye from the lashline to the brows. Keep building the colour until it looks opaque. Take the colour all the way out to the ends of your eyebrows and aim for a full, even coverage. Blend out the edges of the eyeshadow to get rid of any harsh lines.

5. Repeat the process with your other eye, this time using purple eyeshadow.

6. Using an eyeliner brush, apply the white clown makeup you used in Step 1 to line your top lashes. Set the liner with white eyeshadow.

7. Apply bright pink eyeshadow to your lower lashline, then blend the colour down to the hollow under your eyes and outwards to meet the edges of your blue and purple eyeshadow. Build up the colour until you get an opaque look.

8. Using the same pink eyeshadow, contour your nose by starting just under the corner of your brow and taking the line down the edge of your nose. Build up the colour by applying the shadow then blending so the line does not become too stark.

9. Do the same on the other side of your nose.

10. Paint your upper lashes with the white clown makeup from Step 1. Use an angled brush to apply the makeup to the top and bottom of your lashes to coat them fully.

11. Use a thin eyeliner brush to paint your lower lashes onto your lashline using the same white clown makeup. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfectly neat as it will add to the Mad Hatter’s crazed look.

12. Line your lower waterline with white eyeliner to finish off the eyes.

13. Using the pink eyeshadow, begin your pink contouring by filling in your temple and blending the colour out to get rid of any harsh lines.

14. Contour your cheekbones by creating a line with the pink eyeshadow using a fluffy blending brush. Extend the contour under the cheekbones towards the lower jaw and build up the colour, making sure you blend it in at the same time.

16. To create the eyebrows, AngieCle chopped off small pieces from the underside of her wig and glued them together using eyelash glue. To attach the eyebrows, apply eyelash glue to the ends and hold them in place until the glue sets.

17. Once the glue is completely dry, go over your brows again with the orange eyeshadow you used in Step 3 so that the false eyebrows blend in with your natural ones. Take the colour all the way into the false brows to create a natural colour transition.

18. If you like, you can trim the ends of the brows to tidy them up.
