Hunger Games Series: District 8 - Textiles

Hey guys, remember this series! I thought i'd take the opportunity to finish it off as recently, Catching Fire just came out on DVD (I already have my copy!) 
I got upto District 8 - the district of textiles! I'll admit, I was stumped when it came to this district as you don't really get a feel for any of the tributes - they are all killed off in the initial bloodbaths so I couldn't go off personality or anything like that. 
I did a bit of research and found that district 8 was responsible for making the peacekeeper uniforms. The uniforms have a colour scheme of black and white so I ran with that and used some false lashes I got for christmas which had a bit of lace netting on it (fitting for textiles non?)

I hope you like it!

Once again, the Lime Crime Chinadoll palette comes out! The black (Lotus Noir) is seriously the best black eyeshadow in my collection. I won't use anything else. The same goes for the Sugarpill Sweetheart palette and Tako, no other white comes close! The look I was sort of going for was quite a sharp cut crease, but I think I need more practise! I wanted it to be a sharp, strict sort of look kinda like the peacekeepers? I hope that came across! I think the lashes tied in nicely, although I do wish the lace texture came through more!

Have you got your copy of Catching Fire yet?


  1. Love how graphic this looks and the inspiration behind it is so cool! Killer look, as always! xo


  2. I totally see what you were trying to go for especially after seeing the picture of an actual Peacekeeper in uniform. I think you did an excellent job at it!

  4. This is a really great look, I've been wanting to try the cut crease for a long time, but I'm afraid it won't work on my eyes, I'm going to have to play around with it now after seeing this look!

  5. The cut crease in this is FAB! I love how the eyelashes correspond with the Peacekeeper uniform too :)

  6. Those lashes are gorgeous. I can see why District 8 would be hard, I don't remember much about the District itself in the books, but this look is beautiful

  7. This is a very sophisticated look. Well done.

  8. Love your eye makeup looks! Everything is always perfect. You inspire me <3

  11. Those lashes are amazing.
    Out of all the make up looks I've been doing Hunger Games inspired ones are the trickiest with Districts you don't hear much about, but this is perfect. Good bit of research there :D
