CoverGirl Creates Panem-Inspired Looks for Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Capitol Beauty by CoverGirl

We’re feeling the Hunger Games anticipation here at FTD headquarters. Not only did we love Jennifer Lawrence’s coat dress at the premiere earlier this week, the newest collaboration for the movies has us wanting even more. CoverGirl has teamed with famed makeup artist Dotti for a capsule collection of makeup inspired by the different districts of Panem. But there’s more: the beauty juggernaut also posted each look on its Capitol Beauty Studio, so that you can create each look on your own thanks to their YouTube vids. Do you have your tickets ready for Thursday night? Get your brushes ready, because you’ve only got a a day to master your technique before heading to the theaters come midnight.

District 7: Lumber

For those who fantasize about being a resident of the ¼ber-luxe Capitol, you can make like Effie Trinket and douse yourself in gilt glitter (the District One look is pictured above) with a statement-making blood-red lip. Hair tutorials, unfortunately, are not part of the program just yet, but all 12 districts — no spoilers here — are accounted for.

The couture-inspired looks might be just the thing to wear if you’re heading to the film’s opening night (we’re all for cosplay, but the some of the headwear featured in the film might distract other fans).

The collection isn’t just about crazy, out-there looks, however, because while the photos are inspirational, nobody at team CoverGirl expects fans to paint their faces just like these photos on a daily basis. Feel free to use the cream shadows, lipsticks, nail polishes, glosses and more in more natural ways after you’ve soaked in the action of the film.

District 11: Agriculture

The Capitol Collection by CoverGirl (available now!) is the perfect pairing to go with Trish Summerville’s collaboration with Net-a-Porter, though we have to say it’s a little easier to splurge on a few lipsticks and eye shadows than a backless gown.

So take your pick, because the looks of Panem are must easier to attempt than actually volunteering to fight to the death (and choose between a pair of dreamboats). Take a sneak peek below for a time-lapse video from Dotti to see just how the Luxury look of District One comes to life. We’ll see you midnight on Thursday, and of course, may the odds be ever in your favor.
