The Hunger Games Series: District 1 Make Up Look - Luxury

Hey guys and girls. So the other day while browsing tumblr, a little light bulb went off in my head when I saw this particular picture. I thought, why don't I do make up looks based on each district in The Hungers Games books. I know this idea isn't terribly original as many other bloggers and youtubers have done it, but I found it odd that being such a huge Hunger Games fan, I hadn't done any looks based on it yet! So without further ado, I bring you District 1!

District 1 represents luxury. This is the district that makes luxury items for the capital, so its about a lot of precious jewels, gems, silver and gold. The first palette I thought of to create a look was the Urban Decay Vice palette for some reason, I don't know why but it had a lovely gold that I was dying to use. I wanted to create a look that was luxurious and glamorous without being over the top. I wanted to create a classic look that Glimmer herself would perhaps wear and I actually really like where this look ended up!







Yes that is my sully onesie peeking through ;)


As you can't properly see the shades in the first picture, I included a close up of what I used. Muse in the crease and Blitz all over the lid - both from the Urban Decay Vice palette. I also used MAC Charcoal Brown just to blend out with and add warmth.
So I hope you liked this look and the beginning of my new series! If unsure of what The Hunger Games is, its a brillaint trilogy of books written by Suzanne Collins. I went through them in less than a week as they are very very addictive and incredibly good books! They have been made into films and I myself cannot wait to watch the latest one when it comes out on the 21st! I'm hoping I can get all the looks up in time to celebrate the second films release!

Do you like The Hunger Games? Do you think I did District 1 justice?

  14. I love the combo of the gold and the brown! It's glamorous, yet not over the top so I can totally see Glimmer wearing this! (if she were still alive ... ouch, haha)
