Witch Makeup Ideas for a Little Girl

Little witches gracing the streets at night on Halloween aren't forced into being green with warts anymore. Little witches have options as to their wardrobe and make-up choices. Girls can transform into pretty witches, Gothic witches, spooky undead witches, sparkling fairy-witches or a hybrid of any of those choices.

Choose make-up that is age-appropriate for the witch. Test the make-up on her arm first before placing it on her face on Halloween.

Undead Witches

Undead witches are enjoyed for being a bit "rough around the edges." It's all right if their outfit is torn, and it won't hurt if a tear here and there happens on purpose. These witches need pale make-up, not white. Use the shade called "Porcelain" by many companies, and "Ivory" by others. It should be lighter than the witch's normal skin tone. Pat the skin dry with a bit of talc (not too much) when finished. Use a lip conditioner beneath black, dark red or brown lipstick. Blend grey eyeshadow around the eyes to create a shadowed effect. Avoid using mascara or eyeliner, however create darkened eyebrows with eyebrow pencil.

Medieval Witches

Medieval witches are known by their long hair and their otherwise plain appearance. They don't dress in fancy costumes or wear colour. Modern-day "medieval" witches do, however, sport black lips and blush on Halloween. These witches usually wear false eyelashes, glow-in-the-dark eyeshadow and black fingernail polish. These witches, being true children of the night, just want to have fun on Halloween.

Gothic Witches

Gothic witches enjoy red and black colours in their costumes and in their make-up. A dab of black eyeshadow, evenly blended and a bit of red blush adds to the Gothic look for little girls. Apply red lipstick and a bit of red to the tip of the nose. Blend the red on the nose and on the cheeks to give the face a rosy appearance. Apply black eyebrow pencil to the eyebrows, and give the eyebrows thinned, dark lines.

Fairy-Witch Hybrids

For girls of all ages, fairy-witch hybrid make-up styles are always exciting choices on Halloween. Use glow-in-the-dark glistening make-up around the eyes to create a base design, such as a mask-look, a butterfly design, wing design or simply wisps of glow-in-the-dark paint framing the face that resemble small, curly falling stars. Paint an insect, animal or item of her choice on her cheek, such as a frog, a dragonfly, a wand or a moon. Use a natural lipstick shade with glistening gloss.
