    Now it comes to getting the appropriate makeup for the Ronald McDonald costume. You will need red, white and black stage makeup. Apply white makeup to your entire face except the skin immediately surrounding the mouth; here you will need to apply red makeup. Use black makeup for darkening your eyebrows and eyelids.

    Add a curly wig to the costume. The colour of the wig should be bright red. To ensure that the wig stays on, it will be a good idea to attach the wig to a red cap.
