How to do witch makeup

Makeup makes all the difference in the witch costume. “The colors for this makeup are very important, because the more funereal and frightening, the better”, suggests make-up artist Samuel Victor, from Salão Prime.

He emphasizes that the ideal are shadows with a more marked concave in purplish and more closed tones, to give depth, leaving the eyelid still and drooping. On the mobile eyelid, a darker brown background is usually used overlaid with black tones, so that the look is expressive and terrifying.

“Another important part of this makeup is the lipstick. Black is always a good option, but it is used a lot, so my recommendation is purple”, he says. He also adds that the purple lipstick in matte tones is sexy and contrasts with the eyes, which makes makeup much more fun.

“You can also use shades of orange and moss green. It is important that the tone of the lipstick and the blush are in harmony, so as not to weigh the makeup”, adds Samuel.

According to the make-up artist, the main feature of this makeup is the contours that enhance the features of the face (such as the chin, nose, cheekbones and forehead). The contour should be marked to create depth and make the makeup more expressive.

“One of the most used techniques in this type of makeup is the smokey eye, which makes the makeup sexier. The more smoky, the greater the depth in the eye, which also gives the impression of bigger eyes”, he points out.

The professional also declares that you can use the eyeliner and even make a cat eye, but always blending. For those who have a small or almond-shaped look, it is recommended not to use a black pencil on the lower cartilage (waterline). Ideally, use only from the root of the lashes outwards and blend.

Step by step: easy witch makeup to do at home

Below, you can see the step-by-step process of a production that is easy to do and looks very beautiful, even if it is a Halloween makeup. Follow:

  1. Start eye makeup. Apply foundation primer to eyelids, then apply foundation and powder.
  2. Apply brown eyeshadow all over the eyelid and blend just above the crease. For a more dramatic effect, pull a little cat-style smoky to the sides, as in the photo.
  3. Then apply black eyeshadow all over the lid and blend in the crease with the brown eyeshadow to create a smooth gradient.
  4. The next step is to correct the eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or another product suitable for this purpose.
  5. Now it’s the skin’s turn. Apply foundation primer to your face, then apply foundation and then powder.
  6. Ideally, your skin should be very pale, so you can dispense with the blush if you wish.
  7. To finish the eye, apply brown eyeshadow below the waterline and blend well. Finish off with a black eyeliner and lots of mascara.
  8. The last touch is the lipstick: apply with a brush, as this will ensure that the dark eyeliner of the lipstick is perfect. Suggested colors are black, purple or burgundy.

If you want to create depth on the face to make the look a little more macabre, contour using a powder 2 or 3 shades darker than your skin, blending well.
