Where does The Joker buy his make up? (Dark Knight)?

He must get it from some kind of store, right..?

    Assuming you mean the late Heath Ledger's Joker, right?

    It's interesting because when The Joker gets caught, he has no wallet, no ID, no cash on his person, only knives. His fingerprints aren't _in_ Gotham's police system either--either from the Joker's not getting caught before, or perhaps from Gotham having a corrupt police department.

    And the clue is in the Joker's attitude towards money later in the film, when he _burns_ a big wad of it, telling the gathered mobsters that he likes bullets and gasoline "because they're cheap!" (definitely living in a pre-Peak Oil world, that guy).

    My humble guess is: Mr. J is cheap. Not just an anarchist, and cheap in the Do It Yourself sense (the way he rigged himself in explosives in the first full speaking scene of his). The Joker is cheap in the sense that he _never_ handles money or does anything that would leave a trace of himself, anywhere.

    So how does he buy anything? He's a pimp, that's how. *lol* He works connections--charming people one minute, bullying them the next--and generally knows people in Arkham, in the homeless shelters, in the gutter, in the cheap dorms and cheaper frat-houses on Gotham University's seedier parts of campus, and generally makes himself a presence wherever he goes.

    My guess is he's always bartering and always sleeping around. Always dealing in some sort of vice so that when the time comes, one of his "honeys" (not Harley Quinn--she's the only girl in town he _won't_ touch) can go online, buy theatrical grease-paint makeup in bulk, have it sent to a discreet P.O. Box only _he_ has a key to. Only the P.O. Box traces back to a name and face--and it's a name and face of a homeless guy that went missing two months ago, who bought the box for Mr. J in exchange for enough Vodka and Red Bull to stupefy an elephant.

    If Bruce Wayne is about having the best toys money can buy.....Mr. J is always about bartering, always about keeping it under the table and paid-for "in kind". Half of the art majors at Gotham U. have probably bought him makeup at one point, shipped it to his P.O. Box and kept it quiet because nobody _admits_ to sleeping with _him_ if they can help it at all. That or liking it.

    That's how. Between that and raiding church food pantries and pawn shops, he's good.

    He probably got them from Mac or Sephora or some other beauty store.

    You can get make up from any party store, joke shop or supermarket.
