Sabrina from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

To portray this young half-witch, half-human, you’re going to want to focus on your complexion, dark lipstick, and brows — and icy blonde hair, of course. To achieve Kiernan Shipka’s flawless complexion, apply the Armani Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Foundation ($64; sephora.com) all over and blend.with a foundation brush ($30; sephora.com). Accentuate your lashes with a volumizing mascara, like the Ilia Fullest Volumizing Mascara ($28; sephora.com). Shape, tint, and thicken your brows with the Benefit Gimme Brow Tinted Eyebrow Gel ($24; sephora.com). Complete the look with a deep red lipstick like the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Scarlet Spell ($34; sephora.com).

Alexandra and Camryn from Twitches

If there’s one thing these sister witches were genetically blessed with, it’s dewy, glowing skin. Even in IRL (Looking at you, Tia and Tamera Mowry). Start with a lightweight foundation, like the Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 ($48; sephora.com) for natural coverage. Apply a cream blush, like the MAC Glow Play Blush ($30; ulta.com), to the apples of your cheeks to get the sister’s rosy-complexion. For the eyes, both sisters rock a natural smokey eye in purple, brown and gray hues. Try the Tartelette Clay Matte Palette ($39; ulta.com). Complete the look with a dark gloss, like the NYX Professional Butter Gloss in Devils Food Cake ($5; ulta.com).

Melisandre of Asshai from Game of Thrones

“Focus on bringing forward your inner fire with reds, and rustic browns,” says New York City-based celebrity makeup artist Stephanie Flor. To start, she recommends going with a full coverage foundation, like the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Moisturizer ($40; ulta.com). Next, you’ll want to grab the Senna Cosmetics Fire Palette ($40; sennacosmetics.com). “Place the hot metallics only at the crease and blend outwards towards the brows and under the water line in the Brazen and Flame,” says Flor. “You can go in with a white liner in the inner rim.”

Flor says to skip the bronzer to maintain her icy complexion, but use the MAC Raizin Blush ($25; ulta.com) for a colder bit of color. Complete the look with deep lip color. Flor likes the Body Shop Speak Up Vinyl Lip Gloss in My Voice ($14; bodyshop.com). To set and hold the makeup in place, Flor suggests the Skindavia Makeup Setting Spray ($29; skindavia.com).

Elphaba from Wicked

If you’re going in a more theatrical direction, why not choose Broadway’s most fabulous witch: Elphaba from Wicked. You’re going to need a breathable green face paint or a professional foundation in a green hue, like the MAC Pro Performance HD Airbrush Makeup in Landscape Green ($36; maccosmetics.com). This special silicone-based makeup is specifically made for HD Media performance. Complete the look with gravity defying (OK, sorry I had to) mascara, like the Lancôme Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting and Volumizing Mascara ($26; sephora.com).

Endora from Bewitched

As Samantha’s sharp-tongued mother on the 1960s sitcom Bewitched, Endora’s makeup game was on point with her signature electric blue eyeshadow, graphic liner, and contrasting red lip.

So who better to consult on execution than the makeup artist on the HBO Max hit show Euphoria, Donni Davy? “It’s more about impact than perfection and all you need is a wig and your makeup bag with some fun colors,” she advises.

To get this ultra-mod look, Davy suggests applying MAC’s Longwear Paint Pot as primer ($23; ulta.com) before applying eyeshadow using the ColourPop Blue Moon eyeshadow palette ($21; amazon.com). She suggests combining a few of the blue tones to achieve Endora’s iconic look.

For the infamous winged liner, Davy recommends using the Chanel Cream Eyeliner ($35; chanel.com) or the Inglot Gel liner ($17; amazon.com). Then paint a dramatic wing on each eye with black liquid liner. On your lower lid, snake your liner from the inner corner of your eye to the wing and create dimension by tightlining your eyes with a white pencil. Davy says to finish it off with a coral lip, like the MAC Lipstick Cream in Vegas Volt ($19; ulta.com).

Bellatrix from Harry Potter

Bellatrix may be the most evil witch in the world of Harry Potter, but we can all agree that her makeup is every bad witch’s dream come true. Start by creating an exaggerated smoky eye using a dark brown or purple eyeshadow. Then, apply a bit of eyeliner and smudge it out to give your eyes the sinister appearance of a Death Eater. To achieve Bellatrix’s powerful pout, apply your favorite deep purple lipstick and use gloss for extra shine. Now for your hair: use Revlon’s ¾” Perfect Heat Curling Iron ($13; amazon.com) to curl your hair at random and pile on top of your head in a messy half-up do.

Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus

The Sanderson sisters in Hocus Pocus are known for their dramatic makeup looks, but Winifred’s beauty routine takes the cake. Because this witch has a big attitude, give your brows some drama and create a high arch using your favorite pencil or powder. With a heavy hand, apply a deep blush to the apples of your cheeks in circular motions. We love Maybelline’s Fit Me! Blush in Berry ($6; maybelline.com). To achieve Winifred’s buck-toothed pout, conceal your lips entirely and apply red lipstick in a semi-heart shape, leaving the corners of your mouth bare.

Rochelle from The Craft

The trio of witches in The Craft may be considered high school outsiders, but in our book, they’re beauty icons. “For Rochelle it’s all about glowing complexion, and a powerful deep berry lip,” says Flor. She suggests starting with a natural base like IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream ($40; ulta.com), followed by the Laura Mercier Transluscent Setting Powder in Cosmic Rose ($39; lauramercier.com) on your cheekbones and highlights of your face for that glowy complexion.

Next, accentuate and thicken your brows with IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pencil ($25; ulta.com). Finish with black or dark brown mascara and the Nars Lipstick in Fire Down Below ($25; sephora.com). Complete the look as many layered cross necklaces as you can find.

Sabrina from Sabrina the Teenage Witch

You may not come from a long line of witches, but don’t let that stop you from channeling your inner Sabrina. To achieve that quintessential ’90s teen look, apply NYX’s Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Kandi ($5; nyxcosmetics.com) to your lids and rim your eyes with your liner of choice. Dust some bronzer on your cheeks and add a swipe of neutral lipstick. Top off this look by sweeping your hair to the side to create a defined part and secure with a barrette. The ’90s called, they want their teen witch back.

Grand High Witch from The Witches

Anjelica Huston’s Grand High Witch in The Witches may look more like the stereotypical witch you grew up imagining from fairy tales: terrifying, hairy chin, and covered in warts and boils. Though her character often hides behind a “mask” of glamorous lavender eyes and red lips.

To channel her glam side, Flor says to start with the IT Cosmetics CC Cream again, this time in oil-free matte ($40; sephora.com) followed by strategically placed contour using the MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder ($37; ulta.com). Next, Flor recommends adding Laura Mercier Passionfruit Blush ($32; sephora.com) to the apples of your cheeks.

For the eyes, sweep the MAC Powder Kiss Eyeshadow in Such a Tulle ($21; ulta.com) across your lids, and add some black liner and the IT Cosmetics Lash Blowout Volumizing Mascara ($25; ulta.com). Then create a menacingly high arch in your brows and finish off with an enchanting red lip, like the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($8; target.com).
