Growing up, I obviously dressed up as a witch many times, but I can't recall ever actually being the wicked witch. So here's a little step by step of my take on Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West.
1. Prep the face with moisturizer, primer, etc. - whatever you would use for your normal routine.
4. Contour, highlight, and add blush. Just because you're green doesn't mean you can't have a little more color in there too! This is really when it starts coming together.
5. Add extras like long black lashes (I love these ones because they actually have a little bit of green in them, too), black or deep red lipstick, and your costume.
I had such a blast creating this makeup and am sure I'll revisit it in years to come!
