The Hunger Games Series: District 2 - Masonry & Weapons

Hey everyone. So who's excited for Catching Fire? I know I am! I keep watching the trailer over and over again and doing these looks are only getting me more and more excited. Today's look is based on district 2, the district responsible for masonry and weapons. It is one of the wealthiest districts and most children from this district are trained for the Hunger Games and volunteer to represent their district in the games. If you have watched the films or read the books, you might remember Cato and Clove, two of the worst and most powerful tributes in the arena! 

So I wanted to keep this look dark and earthy, to represent not only the stonework that the district is known for but also the power of its tributes. I kept it real simple and smokey and didn't fancy it up with falsies or anything like that. I hope you like it!









I used the Urban Decay Vice palette AGAIN! I'm sorry, I just found it had the colours I wanted for this look. I only used three shades, Desperation (fitting non?), Muse and Black Market to really deepen the crease. I used Anonymous to highlight. Desperation is this fantastic mushroomy colour with a spectacular blue sheen which was really unique. I actually really like this look and think it would be incredibly easy to do for a night out also! Sorry about the lack of full faced photos today too, my face seems to have exploded into spot city so I'm giving my skin a few days of being foundation free :)

Are you excited for Catching Fire?
