Halloween Makeup: Modern Green Witch

I am very excited to show you all my Modern Green Witch Halloween Look that I have created in collaboration with Paul’s Hair and Beauty World! Witches for Halloween are usually green, but this year I wanted to come away from the ugly, old hagged Witch with warts and grey hair. Instead, I wanted to create a stylish, almost chic Witch. Paul’s Hair and Beauty world have got an entire section of their website dedicated to all things Halloween and scary. Including beautiful wigs! Here, I am wearing the ‘Fashion Wig Black*’ at £16.99 reduced to £9.99. It’s a very thin wig which means I have to make sure my hair is securely tucked away but the shine on it is incredible. I decided to mix a green eyeshadow from a Makeup Revolution Palette with Illamasqua’s Rich Base in White for the green skin, as it’s my favourite way to create a thick body paint. But you could always use Green Horror Flesh. I contoured my face with a darker green from the same palette to slim it down and create more depth, as I imagine a chic Witch to have killer cheekbones.

For my eyes I used the Sleek Palette Vintage Romance* with the silver all across my lid, the dark pink all over the top of my lid and the darkest purple in the crease and underneath my eye. The colours are mostly shimmery and blend together beautifully. It’s my first time using a Sleek eyeshadow palette and I’m incredibly impressed with it! The colours definitely made my Grey Mesmereyz  1 Month Contact Lenses* pop and really stand out. I also took the same dark pink down the sides of my noise just a little bit to add extra dimension, and to slim my nose slightly. Using the dark shimmery colour with a wet brush I created some very powerful brows and squared brows. Using the same black shadow and a wet brush, I lined my lips and blended it in with Sleek’s lipstick in Vixen* to create a vampish, ombre lip. I finished off the eyes with a couple pairs of very basic Ebay lashes.

I decided to keep the look quite simple, however, you could step it up with a slightly gore cut on the face with Special FX Wax*. This was my first time creating a cut and I absolutely loved it, sure it’s not the best as I was using Vixen for the blood, but for my first attempt I’m pretty impressed. Unfortunately any pictures I took with a plain background washed the colours out of my face thanks to the flash, so the best photos I have are with messy backgrounds, hence the shabby blurry editing.
