Now for the best part of all – the make-up! Planning out and applying your witch's make-up can be so much fun. You might want to make your face green or you might want to leave it skin-coloured. Warts are a must if you are an ugly wicked witch. For a witch's nose you can purchase a nose to wear or you can make one yourself. A very simple and inexpensive way to make a witch's nose is to shape a piece of aluminium foil and tape it over your own nose, taking care not to cover over your nostrils. Then you can colour the nose the same shade you are using on your own skin. Then you can add false eyelashes if you are a female and you can also use black eye liner around the eyes and black or deep red lipstick.
What about your hair? You must have a witch's hair. The simplest way to accomplish this is to wear a wig, which can be purchased for a low price. Men might be in need of this even more than women because wizards often have long hair. Female witches can have short hair, but it is more traditional to have long hair. If you have long hair, you can colour it grey with temporary hair colour and you can also use glitter hairspray for a different look. Then all you have to add to complete the look is your fabulous witch's broom and your best cackle. You can also add a wand if you wish.
No matter how many times a person dresses up as a witch it never gets boring. You can easily change up your costume and make it different if you dress up as a witch more than once. You might remember dressing up as a witch as a child and now you can do the same as an adult. If you are looking for great couple's fancy dress costumes you and your partner can dress up as a witch and wizard. You can even get the whole family in on it and be a very witchy family. There are so many options to explore and you can have fun with all of them.
