Re-create the Look of Samantha in Bewitched

Gorgeously Retro: How to Look Like Samantha in Bewitched

Watching Bewitched on Saturday afternoons was a childhood ritual for me, and I dreamed of being as gorgeous and funny as Elizabeth Montgomery. Sam is still my favorite witch of all time, and if pressed, I might admit to a small crush on poor, sweet, OCD Darren (original Darren, of course, not the second one). But what's even more classic about the show is Sam's gorgeous hair and makeup, which I think is totally timeless. Especially now, with the fashion and beauty vogue of Mad Men (and the huge red lipstick trend for Fall), why not indulge in a little stylish '60s nostalgia? To find out how to get Sam's pretty look, just wiggle your nose and read more.

  • Start off with a true, intense red lipstick — in the widget below, I put together a ton of variations on Sam's shade.
  • For the eyes, apply several coats of black mascara, followed by black liquid liner in a thick swath across your top lid only. If you have trouble with precise application for liquid eyeliner, try an eyeliner pen instead — again, I put a bunch of them in the widget below if you want to see who makes one.
  • For the hair, use a big-barrel curling iron — a two-incher is best — then apply a heavy hold hairspray, tease the hair at your crown, backcomb the front, and run your fingers through the curls a couple of times to loosen them up.
