Ben Nye's classic formulation of Clown White has been an iconic resource for clowns and character makeup for decades.  This original creme formula is Ben Nye's most densely pigmented white creme base, offering an unbeatable maximum coverage white foundation.  Use it to create a flawless blank canvas to build character makeup designs on.

Available in a vast range of sizes.  The advanced versatility and range of application purposes of this Clown White makes it ideal for use by drag, theatrical, club kid, stage, editorial, character, fantasy, festival, and glamour makeup artists.


Apply Clown White to the skin with a synthetic brush or sponge.  Stipple color for a smooth finish.  Set Clown White with Ben Nye's Super White setting powder for ultimate opacity and matte color.

Gently wipe off makeup with Quick Cleanse on a cotton pad.  Wash off residue with soap and water, oil-free Hydra Cleanse, or a facial wipe.

The nature of the Clown White formula makes it denser than Ben Nye's average creme color.  This provides the unbeatable maximum coverage finish, which may require more blending than usual.

To make Clown White blend more smoothly, warm the creme up by working it into the back of a clean hand, or heat it up on a mixing palette with a blow dryer until the creme softens.

Pair With

Mix custom character foundation shades by combining Clown White with Ben Nye's Creme Colors, Professional Creme Colors, or FX Cremes.  After setting Clown White, add strong line work details on top with Ben Nye's MagiCake water-activated paints.
