Is your daughter going to be a witch this year for Halloween and you have no idea how to paint her face?  Or, maybe you didn’t even plan on painting her face because you thought it would be too hard.

Here’s an easy tutorial for you to follow to do a witch face:

Have you child already in her witch outfit so that you don’t mess up your handy work or get paint on the costume when putting it over her head.

  1. Pull hair back with a headband.
  2. Use a makeup sponge (or your fingers, if you don’t have a makeup sponge) to put green face paint over the entire face.  (There are non toxic face paints you can use.)

3. Next you will paint a curved line over her eyebrows to coincide with her own eyebrow, then make some curved lines off of the top of that line like so:

4. I don’t have a picture of this step all by itself, but at this point, you will have your child close her eyes and you will put black paint on her top eyelid, just as you would eyeliner, and then extend it out a little past her eyebrow.  (you will see it in the next picture)

5. Now you are ready to put some cobwebs on the witch’s face like so:

6. Your final steps are to use the black paint or eyeliner to line the witch’s lips and the crease in her smile (between the corner of her lips and cheek.  See picture for clarification).  For the smile crease, start on her nose and go down from there.

Alright, you are done!

There is your finished scary (pretty) witch!

Now, get her hat on, if she has one, and go have fun scaring people!

P.S. One thing to notice about this witch face is that all the lines don’t have to be perfect.  You don’t have to be an artist for this to be a success!  Just have fun with it.

    Fun! I was a witch for a few years when I was a kid. My girls haven’t asked to be one yet, but they may one year!



    OMG that is adorable! My son went through a huge face painting stage, and I got quite good at it. I’ll be stocking up on extra facepaint this Halloween season for boring cold winter activities.



    How fun! Great job, mama!



    Great job, love it! I’m actually dressing up as a witch this year (our family is doing the Wizard of Oz) so I might have to try this on myself, haha.
