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.

2. Cutesy witch

On the other hand, this super sweet makeup is perfect for anyone who wants to stick to the witch theme, but still slay. The pop of neon green eyeshadow and the fake freckles adds a fun, flirty touch.

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.

5. Creepy witch

If you want to be a little extra this year (or every year, who are we kidding?), try out these wicked witch vibes. Think reds, greens and spooky dark hues. We love the detailing around the eyes using eyeliner and the manicure with black nail polish.

6. Basic witch

Ok ok ok we know this one is pumpkin spice and everything nice, but it’s just so cute. We love the autumnal vibes and the hat adds an extra special touch. To recreate this look you need all the orange burnt tones of this eyeshadow palette and a matching irresistible brown lip.

7. Mystical witch

Spooky doesn’t have to be all blood and gore, instead opt for an enchanting witch look. To achieve this makeup, you need a liquid eyeliner and a steady hand. If you want to elevate it, why not add purple contact lenses?

8. Good witch

Halloween costumes don’t have to always be scary, right? Take a little inspo from Glinda. We also love this cute facial glitter and gems makeup. Combine the pretty flush of blush and the shimmering flecks of silver for a glamorous take on Halloween.

As if we’d forget about The Craft. Whether you were more a Willow or Sabrina fan, you can totally recreate a 90s look with a witchy spin on things. Think grungey makeup, with plenty of kohl eyeliner and a brown lip, duh! And don’t forget the must-have 90s choker and long leather jacket.
