Winifred Sanderson Hocus Pocus Makeup

My Winifred Sanderson Hocus Pocus Makeup

Hocus Pocus it’s Halloween!  As you may have guessed I love this time of year and for my second Halloween Makeup Look of this year it had to be my favourite Witch of all….Winifred Sanderson.  Hocus Pocus is by far my favourite Halloween Movie of all time and I adore the great Bette Midler so this is my little tribute to the 90’s teen in me that used to dance around my bedroom to ‘I put a spell on you’ as well as the Divine Miss M.  I was lucky enough to witness Bette singing this as Winifred Sanderson at the o2 in London a few years ago and even more lucky to have spent a couple of Halloween’s with her, so Sissssssstas here is ‘my version’ of Winifred Sanderson and my Halloween Costume for 2017.

For me Winnie is all about the lips and rosy cheeks (plus the wig and dress), you could really go all out with this look especially with those cheeks and lips but I have tried to the keep the makeup colours complimentary to one another so it helps to tie the whole look together for me and my skintone.  For eyes I almost went with green eyeshadow but changed it to a red/brown so that the cheeks and eyes were the same shade, likewise the lips were a red/brown shade. Here’s a list of the full products I used:

And here is my Hocus Pocus Winifred Sanderson Makeup Tutorial in full, I had so much fun making this video and recreating the look, the most fun I have had on any project yet, I hope you like it ‘Sisssstaaas’ and Happy Halloween!
