Be A Harry Potter Slytherin Witch For Halloween!

There is a lot going on in the Harry Potter fandom world including these Harry Potter Make-Up Brushes that just look so cool. So being an insanely obsessed Harry Potter fan I thought I’d share what make-up I’d wear if I was a witch in Slytherin House. What?!? No Gryffindor you may ask? Alas, as much as I love Hermione, Harry and Ron I’m on Team Snape.

So here’s a little Slytherin House inspired make-up to inspire you for Halloween!

The Color Palette…

I wanted to use colors that represented Slytherin House like green but I also wanted to capture the essence of witches and wizards so I used a lot of purple, gold and red. The rust felt like a potion color for me so I added that in too.

The Eyes…

I spent the most time on my eyes because I wanted to go super dramatic. Don’t be afraid to get dark on your eyes, think stage make-up for Halloween.

While using just green might be the obvious choice for Slytherin eyeshadow I wanted to go dark so I used a combo of the Urban Decay Shadow Box Palette and the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Quads in Rust. The Kat Von D case reminds me so much of Harry Potter, it is gorgeous!

I went super dark on my eyes using the purple, green and dark brown from Urban Decay and Kat Von D. I also added a little Lilac Lust from the Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayon. I highlighted with the white shade from the Shade + Light palette to give myself a ghostly effect.

I also went dark with my eyeliner and mascara. I used a Smashbox Kohl eyeliner because I felt like the crayon was more true to Harry Potter than a liquid. I used Urban Decay Perversion for my mascara. Up close and in person it looked dark but very witchy!

The Lips…

I choose the Borghese B Lip Gloss in Shimmer Berry because it looks a bit like a red shiny apple, with a shimmery shine of course!

The Face…

I use my NYX Bright Idea Illuminating Stick to give a little all over gold magic shimmer to my face. Very appropriate for walking the halls of Hogwarts.

The Nails…

I used the SinfulColors Nail Polish in Rich in Heart because it’s a beautiful blackish red. Perfect for holding a quill pen in Snape’s potion class.

I topped it off with a purple witch hat and a black jacket. The look took me about 45 minutes to complete and it’s a great way to give homage to Harry Potter and Slytherin House while handing out candy on Halloween. Once the kids are gone you can eat the left over candy and watch The Half-Blood Prince.
