And there you have a super quick, really simple Joker makeup.

I'm just going to wet his hair and gel it back. If you have something like some kind of shine product that makes it look greasy that's even better. In fact, you can literally add grease or oil to your hair if you want, a little olive oil or something like that.

And that's the quick and easy Joker.
