Let us Know the Steps to Fashion a Scary Witch Makeup

  • First wash your face with a cleanser
  • Do not use any moisturizer so apply Primer to the clean face. It is recommended to use a silicon based primer as this will smoothen the skin
  • Use a sponge and start applying neon green eye shadow and make sure you cover fully and evenly. Once you are done with your face, using a blush brush, brighten up your cheeks by applying a pale yellow eye shadow to the apples of your cheeks
  • When you get to the eyes, starting from the inner to the outer corners apply red eyeliner to highlight the bottom and top lash line of each eye.
  • Next, create a faint smoky eye using a red or berry color.
  • Once you are done with eyes, working your way up to the crease apply red shadow to the top of the eye lid.
  • Then using an eye shadow brush on your bottom lash line, apply a thin layer of red brick Shadow pigmented Powder right below the eyeliner.
  • Complete the eyes with a couple of mascara coats. You could choose to highlight the green features by using a green mascara
  • For a more striking effect you could choose to apply some grand false eye lashes.
  • Next you need to make some wrinkles on your face by using a black pencil
  • Highlight your lips by applying a red-hot lip color.
  • If you have long hair, leave it simple and if you have short hair you could either use a curly or straight long hair wig.
  • You could either complete the look with the above steps or if you would like to add more chilliness, you can use black nails, a prosthetic nose and moles. Use a black eye liner to make a mole on the chin or on the tip of the nose. As it is said that, the new scary witch look is a little more glamorous, so you could opt out the nose and mole jobs.
