Creating a Sexy Witch Costume Look

Witchcraft and stories of witches go way back into history. The origin of the witch, however, is likely far less sinister than you may imagine. In ancient days there were women who were skilled in the art of natural medicine and who knew a great deal about the use of herbs and plants as forms of medicine. During the more archaic and far less progressive times in history, women possessing such important medicinal skills were highly frowned upon by the male hierarchy of the church. Rumors were started of sorcery and witchcraft, which weren't exactly true, but were sufficient enough to strike fear in the more naive amongst the local villagers and these healers became labeled as something far more notorious than what they actually were.

The witch is one of the most classic of all the Halloween costume looks out there and with good reason. These days you can find a wide variety of witch looks from haunting and ugly to sultry and sexy. The very pretty and sexy witch look is one of the most popular Halloween looks out there as it combines a clever dichotomy of haunting beauty and spellbinding sex appeal. If you are looking for the perfect makeup look to go with your sexy witch costume, follow our easy, step-by-step instructions.

Follow These Steps to Create this Look

Step One:  Begin by applying a foundation to your face with a damp makeup sponge. We have used Celebre foundation in Light Beige, (#DD46) but you will of course want to find the foundation color that most closely matches your natural skin tone. Blend the foundation in well.

Step Two:  We have used the Silver Siren makeup kit for the majority of our dark and sexy witch look. (#PM410072) Begin by applying the lighter grey eye shadow to the eyelids, blending well with the sponge tip applicator that is included in the kit.

Step Three:  Using the darker charcoal color eye shadow in the makeup kit, apply this color with the sponge tip applicator inside the crease of the eyelid and extend the color out from the corners of the eyes. To add a deeper, dramatic look, wet the sponge tip applicator a little and apply more of the dark color. This will deepen the shadow and create a very haunting, smoky eye look.

Step Four:  Using a sharpened black liner pencil, (#DE02) line along the lash line on the upper eyelids. Then repeat this process underneath the lower eyelashes.

Step Five:  The Silver Siren makeup kit includes some glitter-enhanced false eyelashes, which will be applied next. Apply a thin stream of eyelash glue to the edge of the lash. Allow the glue to begin to set up for a few seconds and then press the lash gently to the upper lash line using your fingers or tweezers if that is easier. Hold the lash gently in place for a few seconds until the glue is set. Repeat the process on the other eye.

Step Six:  Using Mehron's Cheek Color in Shell Pink, (#DD140) and a damp sponge, lightly apply the cheek color to the apples of the cheeks. The effect should be very subtle as this makeup look is designed to emphasize the eyes and lips so the cheek color should be barely there.

Step Seven:  Lightly dust the entire face with Mehron's Colorset Powder (#DD321) in order to set the makeup and prevent it from smudging.

Step Eight:  Using the dark charcoal lipstick found in the Silver Siren makeup kit, (PM410072) smooth the color onto the lips.

Step Nine:  Using a cotton swab, lightly press some Pixie Dust (#FW9476) onto the lips for very sexy shimmer and sparkle. Using the puff applicator, gently press some of the same pixie dust onto the cheeks and anywhere else you want to add a glittery effect. Pixie Dust can be especially sexy on your decolletage.
