Luckily, you won't need to empty your bank account to get this complete look. Use the skeleton makeup kit to create the wrinkles, bushy eyebrows, and highlights to the face. If you don't have any blush or foundation on hand, the Graftobian tattoo coverup makeup wheel should be able to help do the trick! For the lips, we have a two-in-one red nail polish and liquid lipstick that will work perfectly to paint on those sinister lips. The costume and wig are the exact accessories we used for this tutorial, though obviously, you can switch it up however you'd like to match your personality. Whether you're a witch with a conscience or a witch powered by pure evil, be sure to check out all of our witchy wigs and witch costumes to make sure you've got the perfect pairing.
