The Hunger Games Series- District 12

By  |  38 Comments


About time, right?? :D This series will be based off of The Hunger Games! I’m SOOOO excited for the movie to come out, I finished reading the series before they picked the cast for the movie.. it was the first series that I had read before any movies had been made/casted, so that was fun to be able to see who they chose, and see set photos and the trailers as they were released :)

For the first look from this series, I decided to start with District 12, and do a look based off of that and Katniss. District 12 is the mining district, so I did a smokey shimmery look with fire elements for “the girl on fire”. I also have a brown wig with a braid, and a red asymmetric shirt to sort of look how Katniss does when she’s being interviewed in the trailers. Hope you like!!

    When are you making a video for this? I’d love to find out what the Inglot colours look like, since I have no idea by name, so I can attempt to do this with what I have in my makeup collection.

    I really, really like this look! This is an awesome example of how easy a soft smoky eye is to create. I feel that so many people get so wigged out about how to do it. And it’s so pretty on you too.

    Where did you get that wig?!?!?!?! I need a brown wig for my Katniss costume for the premeire, and I cant find one. I think the hair does suit you. ITS PRETTY!! On another note, I am super happy you are doing a HG series. I am a little obsessed, and I have been for a while, so having my favorite guru do a series on my favorite thing is amazing.

    Hi Leesha!
    Just watched your video The Hunger Games Series- District 12, and love it! That’s amazing how much ideas you get for the make-up just almost from everything :)
    I love black eye shadows, but they’re so messy, so I was wondering if you could do a video to show the best way to clean up the under eyes, as when I clean it up with some wipes and then put concealer again it doesn’t cover as well as in the first place and looks like I put too much of foundation.
    Thank you.

      I always do my eyes first and any face makeup last. I never have any problems cleaning up fallout that way and I don’t have to be careful to avoid fallout.

      There are a few tricks as well. Such as putting a thick layer of face powder under your eyes, then brushing it off after you’re done with your eyes. Or holding a tissue under your eyes. But like I said, it’s so much easier to just do your eyes first and foundation last.

    I know you’re into the El Dorado liquid liner but I’ve been using the 24/7 pencil and setting it with Goldilux from Sugarpill which I find is a much more brilliant gold. Did you consider that as liner for this look? And possibly adding some blue under-eye since most flames do contain that colour?
    I think the look is incredibly pretty, just thinking out loud-that’s how I do my gold liner and I just felt like the look needed some blue. I love it though, great makeup tute series.
    BTW if you want a good dystopian novel rec, you NEED to read Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. 1st of a trilogy. Fantastic, completely.
    And I have a feeling that the new individual rainbow falsies from Sugarpill are going to be used in the Capitol look. I know I’d use em. Any excuse, I’m in love/lust.

    This is beautiful! I’m so excited to see what look you’re going to do for the Capitol.

    What is the fluffy brush that you’re using? I see another green end angled crease brush in your other tutorial. Are they from the same brand? =)

    This is one of my favorite looks that you’ve ever done. And I think I’ve seen all of them… Does anyone else not like the girl who’s playing Katniss? Maybe seeing the movie will change my opinion but as of now… Eh.

    Leesha I have to say I’ve been watching your tutorials for a couple of years now, in each one of them you are beautyful but something about this look made you look absolutely gorgeouse! (I know that my comment is supposed to be about the make up itself and not about the way you look but I couldn’t help it)  Maybe it’s the dark hair that changed you so much, it really flatters you , makes you look so different! And of course the make up is beautyful and creative as usual.

    I found this on Pinterest and though it was amazing, I love the idea!!!! The look is so beautiful, it’s dark and smokey but the gold makes me think of hope and innocence! Great interpretation, I can’t wait to see the next ones!!!
