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.
(Pin the picture above so you don’t lose this tutorial! And, others will benefit from it too!)
You Don’t Have to be an Artist!
Seriously… I am SO the opposite of an artist… as you will see in the pictures in this post. But guess what!? My daughter loved her witch face, had tons of fun trick or treating, AND she and I had some great bonding time while I painted her face! I can that a win!
With that in mind, I want you to drop any self doubt at the door before you read and follow the steps in this post. You can do this!
Here’s the 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.
- Pull hair back with a headband.
- 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 like the ones HERE.)
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 next 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 witch! (Actually, pretty witch, but we won’t tell her!)
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.
