Professional makeup artist Stevie Calabrese directs all the ooey-gooey freaky makeup for one of Chicago's haunted houses, The Realm of Terror. She seemed like the perfect person to teach us a thing or two. Here, she breaks down Femme Joker makeup that will make the late Heath Ledger proud.

And as it turns out, creating elaborate Halloween makeup only requires a trip to the drugstore and these nine steps.

Supplies: (You can find all of these items at your local costume shop and pharmacy)

  • Paintbrush
  • Eyeshadow brush
  • Cotton balls
  • Makeup sponge
  • Matte black eyeshadow
  • Black, white and red face paint
  • Liquid latex

Directions:

Step 1:

With black face paint or eyeliner, draw a line where you want your smile to go. This will also help keep both sides even.

Step 2:

Paint on latex above and below your line. Do not use a nice makeup brush because it will have to be thrown out once it dries.

Step 3:

Lay small strips of cotton on top of the latex, creating an extension of your upper and lower lip.

Step 4:

Using more liquid latex, paint over the cotton, blending the edges outward. Let the latex dry.

Step 5:

Using a sponge and white face paint, dab a light layer of white all over your face and neck.

Step 6:

Using an eyeshadow brush, darken all around your eyes and up into your eyebrows. Fade the edges out. Use your finger to smudge a few places around the edge of the eyeshadow.

Step 7:
