In children’s fairy tales and antique decorations for Halloween, witches they are often depicted as old, exhausted, and “ugly,” with warts on their noses and missing teeth that are revealed when they give an evil scream. But witches have come a long way since then – many of them are even beauty icons. (Hello, have you ever admired the way the Evil Queen enters Snow White does this red lip and purple eye shadow with creases work?)
Just like real witches, the ones we see in movies and TV shows wear all kinds of makeup, serving as inspiration for last minute Halloween costume if you need one. Yes, there are many people who have the typical glamorous-gothic look, with long black hair and black or red lipstick. But there are many who prefer more neutral eyes and lips. Either way, there’s a witch beauty icon for everyone, whether you’re leaning more towards Glinda the Good Witch or the Evil Witch of the West (hey, green base could be TikTok’s next trend, you never know!).
