When it comes to Halloween costumes, sometimes it’s good to just stick with what you know. Instead of racking your brain for some super creative costume idea, why not just pull off a classic really well? Luckily, you can learn how to do witch makeup from a variety of online tutorials and really take your costume to the next level. Sometimes you just can’t beat being a witchy woman for Halloween. It's a classic for a reason, you know?
The good thing about recreating a this wicked kind of look is that there’s a wide spectrum of different witch makeup looks that you can try out. You can have spooky yet wearable makeup, you can go for a black lip ‘90s grunge kind of look, or you can go full-on witch mode. I’m talking green face, pointy nose, long chin, all of that. Simply decide what fits your Halloween vibe the best, and then pick the tutorial that works best from the following list.
These four tutorials will show you how to pull off each of the looks that I mentioned. They’re super easy to follow, and the great part is, unless you’re going the green face paint route, you probably already own most of the products you’ll need. And if not, shop some of the products featured below and you'll have your costume party makeup completely sorted.
