How To Pull Off Witch Halloween Makeup

By Rebecca Jenkinson - 2 years ago | Updated
Three images of women with witchy makeup

Believe it or not Halloween is just right around the corner – I know, we don’t know how it’s that time of year already. Whether you're heading out out or keeping it quiet at home, you can still get your glam on.

At Cosmetify, we love experimenting with makeup, especially when it comes to spook-tactular looks. And one our fave costumes is obvs the classic witch. From the Wicked Witch of The West to Sabrina The Teenage Witch, pop culture is full of mystical Halloween inspo.

But how do you pull off the witchy look and still look mega cute?

Don’t panic, there’s no green face paint, just ten easy ways you can pull off spellbinding witch makeup looks this Halloween. Whether you want an easy-peasy tutorial or something a bit more gothic glam, there’s something to suit every ability.

1. Gothic witch

Dark lips? Dark eyes? Bold brows? Check, check, check. At Cosmetify, we love black lipstick you can wear all year round, but even more so at Halloween. These gothic glam looks give us the perfect excuse to whap out the black lipstick and recreate our best moody Judy look.

3. Old school witch

I mean, is it even Halloween if you don’t get your annual viewing of Hocus Pocus? Winifred is the leader of the Sanderson sisters and has the most iconic look with big red curls and a pop of red lipstick. Why not rope your two besties into it so you make the troublesome trio into a reality?

4. Glam witch

Halloween witch makeup can still be glamorous. Just take a look at this sultry red eye and liquid lip combo. We’re obsessed with that pop of shimmer on the lids and the killer false eyelashes. Dark lipsticks are not only ideal for witch costumes, but also great if you want to try a vampy look this spooky season.
