Hunger Games Series: District 9 - Grain

Hi all. I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't awfully excited by this district. After all, what can you do with grain?! District 9 is also a district you don't hear much about, with not many memorable characters and not a lot of page time, it was hard to come up with something inventive.
So I did something that I felt used the sandy earthy hues of grain and nature and actually quite liked the result. It is a very easy look to wear and while not very adventurous, I think the series in general has lacked in neutral looks! So I hope you enjoy this little break from the madness :)











I used the Nars God Created Woman palette for this look using Belissima all over the lid with Alhambra in the crease and Kalahari to soften the crease and define. I then used Coconut Grove as eyeliner. This is my favourite everyday eyeliner for when I want something softer. Its crazily pigmented but still soft and smokey and I find this is much easier (and quicker!) than liquid for when I'm going to work and the like. This palette has also come back into stock recently, so grab it while you can here! I can honestly say I use mine a tonne! 
The overall look I felt, was quite neutral, sandy and represented grainy tones quite well! I have also been rocking this look on the regular as its so quick and easy to do! 
Funnily enough, I took a test on this website here to see which district I came from (I know.. I have too much time on my hands!) and I would apparently come from District 9! Appropriate non?

Out of interest, which district would you come from?
