How to Do Witch Nose Make-Up
Realistic make-up will make your wicked witch costume even more impressive. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

If you want to dress up as an impressive wicked witch, it's going to take more than simply donning a costume. You really must become the character through make-up, clothing and mannerisms. The clothing and mannerisms may be easy enough, but it's the make-up that's the real challenge. Adding a prosthetic, like a witch nose, can have a dramatic effect. Applying your witch make-up well is important if you want to make a lasting impression.

  1. 1

    Wash your face with soap and water. Use a towel to completely dry your face. The witch nose will have more difficulty sticking to your skin if it's wet.

  2. 2

    Apply a thin layer of spirit gum to the inside edge of the witch nose. Place the witch nose over the top of your own nose and hold it in place for a full minute. This allows the spirit gum enough time to stick to your skin. Wait another five minutes before you move on to the next step.

  3. 3

    Brush on liquid latex where the edge of the witch nose meets your skin. You want to blend in the line as much as possible. This may take a bit of patience to get it just right. Allow the liquid latex to dry completely.

  4. 4

    Apply green make-up to your entire face. Go back and add shades of grey in places like your cheekbones, under your eyes and along the lines of your nose. Blend this make-up well to prevent solid lines. You want to go for softer lines and shading to get the most realistic look.

  5. 5

    Add a mole to the witch nose to complete the look. Simply glue a store-bought witch's mole onto your witch nose.
