Watch: Make-Up Insights From A Clown - And What You Can Learn From Him

You may actually be using the same products as the Cirque du Soleil performer. Now who’s clowning around?

The circus is coming to town once more — and so are the clowns. Nah, nothing like the sinister clown attacks that hogged headlines. Instead, the whimsical clowns from Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza will have you LOL-ing. The show, which gets its name from the Sanskrit word for box, is also a treasure trove of entertaining stunts, including the death-defying highwire bicycles and the Wheel of Death, performed by a cast of 50 acrobats, musicians and actors.
