Our interest in all things occult has taken off. Over on social media #witchtok is its own bubbling community with 32 billion views. So expect to see witch makeup fly this Halloween. Even if you’ve not quite got your head around cleansing your crystals in the full moon, burning sage, or DIY enchantments, anyone can tap into the witch aesthetic.
Even better, there’s tons of different ways to interpret the look, whether you connect more with mystic vibes, something more natural and earthy, full out glam, classic and, um, green (we see you Elphaba), or super scary like the Grand High from The Witches, or creepy and complete with special effects. The TikTok babes have even been offering up witch lewks based on your star sign, so maybe looking to the stars is your first step on the road to becoming the witch you were meant to be.
Take a look at some of our favourite witch makeup ideas ahead. So… which witch will you be channelling this year?
The Enchanter Witch
Makeup influencer, Amber Pitkin has been busy putting together looks for the signs of the zodiac. Leos, it looks like you’re the enchanter witch, which is equal parts chic and scary pick a palette like Beauty Bay’s Midnight Palette with lots of blacks, greys and deep purples, and make sure you have a liquid liner ready, we love Stila’s Stay All Day Liner.
The Violet Witch
Witches don’t have to be monotone, we love this mystical violet interpretation by Sophie Hannah. To recreate that stunning metallic purple lip, we’d recommend MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lip Metallic in Atomized.
The Simple Witch
Wanna keep it stylish, cute and simple, an eyeliner stamp can do the hard work for you, like the Lottie London x Vampire Diaries Moon Stamp Liner, for instance. Complete with a few extra dots with your regular liner and you are good to go.
The Green Witch
If you’re properly committing, you’ll be needing some green body paint (try the Snazaroo Classic Face and Body Paint) and make sure you have a deeper green eyeshadow to contour and sketch your features back in. For the lips, try Makeup Revolution’s Lip Contour Kit in Midnight Kiss.
