How to Paint a Scary Witch Face

Painting a scary witch face is not that difficult with a little face paint. Because it is supposed to be scary and wicked looking, it is OK if it is not perfect. You can make your witch face as elaborate as you like, for example, by adding an ugly prosthetic nose to enhance the look, but it is not necessary. Just using some black and green face paint, along with black lipstick, will help you easily create a scary witch face.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cotton balls
  • Green and black face paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Eyelash glue
  • Black lipstick
  • Black eyeliner
  • Make-up brushes and sponges

  1. 1

    Put the rubbing alcohol on to the cotton ball and wipe it all over your face. This will clean off any facial oil or old make-up before beginning.

  2. 2

    Cover your face in green face paint. You can go as dark or light as you like, but a lighter face paint tends to look a little more realistic.

  3. 3

    Use the black face paint or eyeliner to draw wrinkles on the face. They can go on the forehead, at the corners of the eyes and around the mouth.

  4. 4

    Paint a small mole on the face somewhere. The chin or nose are the most common places.

  5. 5

    Pull a few hairs out of the paintbrush and stick them to the mole with the eyelash adhesive.

  6. 6

    Put the black lipstick on your lips. You can do it very lightly so it is just a shadow, or apply it very dark so it provides a sharp contrast from the rest of the green face. Try it both ways to determine which way you like better.

  7. 7

    Dust baby powder over the entire face to help the paint stay in place the entire time you need it.

Tips and warnings

  • Add a hat, robe and broom, and your witch persona is complete.
  • Be careful around the eyes with the face paint.
