Happy Hunger Games! Makeup

Hunger Games

"Hmm...What to wear to Opening Ceremonies..."

So, I just finished reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins…and oh. my. god! Love!! I see what all the hype’s been about! What a great series! It really sucks you in with it’s post-apocolyptic-modern-Logan’s Run-Battle Royal-ness.

Lots of people are doing looks based on the books, and I too was inspired!

I’ve done a Capital look. I was quite proud of how this one turned out, and it gave me a chance to really play with my BH Cosmetics 120 Palette.

For those who haven’t read the series, the country (Panem) is broken down into 12 Districts, and the Capital. The Capital’s citizens are free, and and enjoy a posh lavish lifestyle with very little concern for anyone outside of the Capital.

They are known for insane style, wild unnatural hair colors, elaborate make up, and they even dye their skin different colors….I had to do it.

I really wanted to do something with bright colors around the eyes, and a dyed skin. Working with the wigs I had, I picked my favorite blue one, and drew colors from there settling on a primary color palette of Red, Blue, and Yellow.
