One of the most favored kinds of spells out there are beauty spells, or glamours, as we often call them.
Glamours are spells that are used to alter one’s appearance, change how people perceive you, or how you perceive yourself.
This can be used in terms of beauty and outward appearances, or emotional perception.
Glamours are known for working fast, almost immediately, and are considered to be somewhat of a specialty in the witchcraft community, meaning that certain witches are fantastic at glamouring, while others may not have as much skill in casting them.
While some believe you have to be naturally talented to cast certain kinds of spells, I’m here to tell you that anyone can learn and master any kind of magic without having natural talent in it so long as they practice enough and are dedicated to it.
White and Black Magic Beauty Spells
Beauty, or Glamours, also seem to fall under the category of ‘white magic’. Well, I need to mention white magic reference.
There is no such thing as black and white magic, and frankly the use of the terms is racist.
The association of African based root magic, curses and baneful magic with being ‘black’, ‘dark’, negative, bad and evil.
Meanwhile European rooted magic, love spells, glamours and protection styled magic is labeled as being ‘white’, ‘light’, positive, and good is an internalized and historically racially discriminate way of thinking.
Magic, as I’ve also waxed poetically about before, is not inherently good nor bad, so there can be no ‘black’ or ‘white’ magic, anyway.
Magic, and therefore witchcraft, is a tool, it is a practice.
Just like medicine is not inherently good nor bad. So, I encourage you to toss conventional ‘black/white’ magic thinking out the window (in this post, read more about Black vs White).
Use of Beauty Spells
Glamours, like magic as a whole, can be used for good or for bad.
That is to say, you can use them to accomplish honorable goals such as
- making you a more pleasant person,
- increasing your self esteem
- making you feel good about yourself
- seeing yourself as a beautiful person.
Or, you can use them for less favorable goals, such as
- influencing the way others see or feel about you,
- changing the way others see or feel about someone else negatively.
Obviously and ultimately the intention of any spell depends on the witch and their emotions and true purposes for performing a spell.
Beauty Spells Examples
Glamours are fairly simple and I will just be sharing two easy glamours with you in this article.
The first is the well beloved sugar spell, which I’ve modified into a face scrub you can use regularly while also reaping the magical benefits.
The purpose of this spell is to
- sweeten your appearance, outward and in, to yourself and to others,
- lessen the prominence of any negative personality traits you make have,
- generally make you a more pleasant person as a whole.
Ingredients and Supplies needed:
- Clover Honey
- Brown Sugar
- White Sugar
- Coconut Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil (optional)
- A container with a lid, 1 oz plastic or clear jar works well
- In your container, mix together the sugar and oil until you get a paste-like consistency.
- Add your honey. Just a few drops will do, or more if desired.
- Stir it with a toothpick or a Popsicle stick three times counterclockwise, chanting out loud three things you want to banish or remove from your life.
- Stir it three times clockwise and chant out loud three things you want to attract or add to your life.
- Do a skin patch test on your arm to make sure it doesn’t irritate your skin.
- Once safe, apply it to your face. Really scrub it on.
- Rinse with cold water, and the spell is done.
Beauty Spells Ritual #2
This second spell is to glamour an object, which will have the desired effect on you anytime you wear it.
Ingredients or Supplies needed:
- A glass or ceramic bowl
- A tall, white pillar candle
- Moon Water (New or Full, either works)
- Rose petals
- Jasmine buds
- Lavender buds
- Chamomile buds
- Wild flower petals
- Rose Quartz crystal
- Amethyst crystal
- Your object you want to enchant
- With a toothpick or knife, carve a sigil or your full name into the candle.
- Set the candle in the center of the bowl.
- Fill the bowl up with one inch of moon water, so that it reaches about 1/4 of the way up the candle.
- Add your flower petals and buds as well as a pinch of sugar and a pinch of salt to the moon water.
- Set your rose quartz crystal on one side of the bowl (on a dry surface)
- Set your amethyst crystal on the other side of the bowl (on a dry surface)
- Light the candle to formally begin the ritual.
- Take your object and hold it in the palm of your hand.
- Chant, “Change me, change me, alter how we see, a charm I enchant, so mote it be.”
- Charge the object with a gentle pink energy.
- Now dip your fingers into the water and stir it three times, repeating the chant three times.
- Smear the water on your forehead and on your object. Feel the energy flowing through you and around you and into the object.
Remember, as always to use your magic responsibly and most importantly, to have fun and be safe.
