The Hunger Games FINALLY opens tomorrow (duh) and we could not be more excited. We've followed every development: from
Katniss' Braid: A lot of thought went into the making of this braid. The movie's hair stylist, Linda Flowers, gave
Cinna: The male beauty looks are just as important in this movie as the ladies'. Sometimes even more so. Cinna, Katniss' stylist, is a dignified, quieter character, and his only nod to Capitol outrageousness is some metallic eyeliner. The head makeup artist for the film, Ve Neill, used Makeup Forever's Metal Powder #1 for a shimmery peek of color. Can't get your guy to sport it? Try it out on yourself. You can get it at
Effie Trinket:Effie has so many crazy beauty looks in this movie. The one above is technically from the China Glaze Hunger Games nail polish ad, but we love the eyelashes, so chose this look to break down. We don't know the specific products that were used in this look, but we're very resourceful, so here are some choices for you:
-Lips: We're seeing a bit of Prabal Gurung spring 2012 influence there. And fuchsia lips are a big trend for spring. Try
Seneca Crane: Seneca Crane has some nutso facial hair. According to
Katniss Girl-on-Fire: This is arguably the scene that fashion nerds (and just plain, well, nerds) want to see the most in the movie: Katniss' big moment when she steps into the opening ceremony and is lit on fire. First of all, forget about trying to DIY that hair. Movie hair stylist Linda Flowers told Seventeen,"I used basket weaving, plaiting, French braids, everything. There were 10 different braids in there and I made this headdress out of braids."
