We’re just a week away from the release of the much-anticipated remake of Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and to keep us excited, the Grand High Witch — also known as Anne Hathaway — posted a behind-the-scenes photo of her character’s hair and makeup.
On Sunday, Hathaway posted a photo on Instagram from inside the makeup trailer on set of The Witches, with the caption, “Resting witch face. #TheWitchesMovie”, and we’ll give it to her: not only does she look terrifyingly wicked, but she also wins for having that genius caption. In the photo, the Grand High Witch wears a white-blonde wig with ashy roots, which is styled in a towering beehive. For the makeup, she wears a smoky, winged purple eyeshadow with dramatic false eyelashes with a deep, blackened plum lipstick to finish off the striking look.
According to IMDB, the beauty pro responsible for this wicked beauty look is a hair and makeup artist by the name of Paula Price, who has an impressive CV, including a Hollywood Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Guild Awards nomination for her work on Mary Poppins Returns in 2019.
In the background of the photo, you can also see behind-the-scenes test shots and hair and makeup inspiration mood boards from the movie, which tells us one thing: we’re in for a treat (albeit a terrifying one) when it comes to the beauty looks in The Witches remake.
