Witch Makeup Tutorial

Since Halloween is only a couple of days away, I thought it might be fun to share a last minute Halloween makeup tutorial. I think that it's pretty easy to throw together a fairly decent witch outfit at the last minute. If you're really desperate, you can just wear all black. To really make sure that you look like a witch, all you really need is a witch hat which you can get almost anywhere, including the dollar store. 

If you're not in the mood to paint yourself green and give yourself a huge nose and warts, then this may be the witch makeup for you. 

Step 1: Apply foundation and concealer

Step 2: Contour using bronzer. Apply bronzer under your cheekbones, around your hairline, along your jawline, and down the sides of your nose. Apply this more heavily than you typically would. It's Halloween and you're being a witch- it's okay for your makeup to look a little harsh!

Step 3: Cover your eyelids with white eyeliner to help the eye shadow you're going to apply on top to pop

Step 4: Apply a shimmery, light green eye shadow to the inner third of your main lid. I used L'Oreal HIP Shocking Shadow Pigments in Rebel (available here)

Step 5: Apply a shimmery emerald green eye shadow to the rest of your main lid, blending it with the light green. I used a shadow called Vert from Urban Decay (available here)

Step 6: Apply a dark green shadow to the outer corner and along the crease of the lid. I used a shadow called Bender from Urban Decay's Book of Shadows Vol. 4 (available here)

Step 7: Apply a dark brown/green shadow to the outer corner of the eye. I used L'Oreal HIP Shocking Shadow Pigments in Intrepid (available here)

Step 8: Apply a dark purple shadow just above the crease of the eyelid. I used Gravity from Urban Decay's Book of Shadows Vol. 4 (available here)

Step 9: Apply a light purple shadow above the dark purple shadow. I used Grifter by Urban Decay (available here)

Step 10: Apply black liquid liner across your top lash line, winging it out along the outer edge of the shadow you applied.

Step 11: Line the bottom of your eye with black eye shadow. I used Oil Slick by Urban Decay (available here)

Step 12: Apply mascara and false lashes. I used Maybelline's Mega Plush Volum' Express (available here) and Ardell's Natural Lash- 109 Black (available here)

Step 13: Fill in your eyebrows, making them thicker than you usually would.

Step 14: Apply a dark, purple toned lipstick. I used Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Mauve It Up (available here)

Step 15: Apply a peach colored blush to the apples of your cheeks

That's it! Enjoy being a wart-less witch!
