Spellbound Witch - Halloween Makeup Tutorial

This look is focused on the pale matte skin, which lets the black and purple really stand out. Dark, black eyebrows accentuate the darkness of the look and help to give a more eerie feel. And everyone knows that a good witch needs a pointy nose, and the answer’s all in the contouring. The key is to use darker colours on both sides of the nose and highlight the tip; this helps give the appearance of a pointy nose for a true witchy feel. Now here’s my favourite part; the lips and eyes.

Dark, pointed eyeliner blended into purple and black and purple ombre lips. I love how much this stands out on the paler background, and it truly does look like hat I would imagine a witch to look like. It’s spooky with a touch of glamour, and has the true witch vibe without being too over the top.

I absolutely love this look. It has such a spooky, witchy feel to it and it’s kind of scary-pretty, if that even makes sense. It gives you a true Halloween vibe and is the perfect finishing touch to any costume. To make it believable you need to go all out. And this makeup is definitely the perfect finishing touch.

  • Wet an eye shadow brush and sweep purple onto the eyelids, and under bottom lashes. This helps to intensify the colour.

  • Use an angled brush to apply black eyeshadow to the outer corners of the eye, going above the eyelid crease and below the lower lash line, creating a curve and blend together.

  • Using liquid eyeliner, draw 2 dots in a diagonal line – One at each outer corner of the eye, roughly 1cm out – This will be used as guidelines to create a flick.

  • Line the top and bottom of the eyes with the eyeliner, connecting the dots, making the outer edges slightly thicker.
  • Now time to create the spiderweb. Choose an eye and using the eye liner, draw 4-5 slightly curved lines coming outwards from the eyeliner already applied.
