Makeup Tips to Get the Sarah Sanderson Makeup Look

It can be overwhelming trying to recreate a complete look. But when you break it down into little sections, it’s really achievable! When you watch Hocus Pocus or search for Sarah Sanderson on Google, you notice a few things about her. Sarah Sanderson has:

  • Smokey eyes
  • Bold lips
  • Contour
  • Beauty mark on her chin
  • Defined eyebrows

You can recreate her sultry look by breaking it down to these steps. Here’s how:

Smokey Eyes

In my makeup artist course, I learned how to do a really easy smokey eye, and you can learn how too! Here’s what you’ll need:

Here’s how to get an easy smokey eye:

  • Apply black eyeliner with the Multitasker brush to the main part of your eyelid. Don’t go above the crease.
  • With the same brush, set the eyeliner with a black eyeshadow.
  • Take a warm brown eyeshadow and pat it above the black to blend the harsh line. Blend it until it looks seamless.
  • Apply the shimmer eyeshadow under the brow and on the inner part of the eye.
  • If you want more drama, add black eyeliner along your upper and/or lower lashes.
  • Apply a thick layer of Mascara.

Bold Lips

A bold lip is the perfect addition to this Halloween makeup look! But the tricky thing with red lips is that it either fades quickly or comes off on your teeth! And you want to look great all evening!

The absolute BEST long-lasting lipstick is from SeneGence. You apply it in 3 thin layers to really seal in the color and then top it with a gloss for moisture. Your lip color will not budge for HOURS! You can eat, drink, kiss, laugh, and talk and it won’t leave your lips.

Any of these long lasting LipSense shades would be perfect for this look: Red Blu, Plum, Lexi Berry, Fly Girl, Coco


Sarah Sanderson has defined cheekbones and you can easily get this look too! Here’s what you’ll need:

Here’s how to get those contoured cheekbones:

  • Find your cheekbones on your face.
  • Start at your hairline near your ear and take the Detail Brush and the cream contour and draw a line right below your cheekbones.
  • End the line near the outer corner of your eye.
  • Then blend the contour upwards.
