Witches are always a popular choice for any Halloween event! For this blog, I wanted my witch to be different from the usual green style, so I decided to research the different witchcraft symbols. Follow these steps to create your own scary witch Halloween Makeup.
Scary Witch Halloween Makeup Tutorial
I began by painting the witch's star on my forehead, using red face paint by Kraze FX with a number 3 brush. Next I built up layers of liquid latex and tissue paper around the edges and in the middle of the star, using a cotton bud to apply the latex as this can be thrown away after use. I ensured that I kept any latex away from my eyebrows, otherwise they would need to be protected. This process is explained in many of my other blogs if needed.
To give myself a pale complexion, I loaded a teardrop sponge with white face paint and applied it to my face and neck. I used black powder with my Paradise brush to add shading to all the areas I wanted to change on my face ( ie, down the sides of my nose, cheekbones, eyes, forehead etc). I also added some shadows inside the witch's star to create depth.
For the finer lines on my face and neck, I loaded my number 3 brush with the brown from my Kryolan Zombie wheel and used the very tip of the brush. ( If your brush does not have a fine point, I would recommend using a number 1 or 0 brush.) I also used this brush to paint the position of where I wanted my Witches mouth to be. I wanted the witch's star to look sore and realistic, so I added some small amounts of Fresh Scratch by Kryolan. I used an Orange stick to apply this.
I have tried lots of different wound fillers, but Fresh scratch is by far my favorite.
Next I loaded my round number 5 brush with white face paint and added a few teeth to my witch's mouth. Then using the same brush I reloaded with pink by Diamond FX and painted the gums inside of the mouth. To paint the black inside the mouth, I used my number 3 brush again and then used the tip of the brush to create some deeper wrinkles around my eyes and mouth.
To finish the look, I loaded my number 3 brush with Blood Red by Diamond FX and added some sexy lips to my Witches mouth. Then finally I put on a long Black wig and Witches hat. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog!
