The Hunger Games Series- District 9

By  |  39 Comments


Here we are at District 9! These tutorials have been really fun for me so far, and I just reread the first two books of the series this past weekend, so it’s all fresh in my mind and making me ridiculously excited for the movie premiere, which is both good and bad. The same thing happened when the first Twilight movie came out, I was insanely excited and all the hype just made it worse.. and I left the theater insanely PISSED because it was horrible and nothing like I imagined and no one could act and blah blah blah. Hunger Games is getting a ton of hype and promotion, and I really really hope it lives up to it.

District 9’s industry is Grain. It’s actually the district that I was assigned to on!


Classy, right? I’m a plower. Just what I always aspired to be in life.

I wanted this look to have golden tones of beige and browns, and I really liked how it turned out. I also added some glitter and sparkles just to make it a little more fun.

    Will you be doing any Hunger Games looks with a darker &/or more dramatic lip and simpler eye?

    I absolutely love this look! I’m loving all the looks you’ve been coming up with.. And I agree with you on the hype. I was so excited for Twilight, and everyone was talking about how awesome it was.. I read the books as soon as I found out a movie was coming out. I was severely disappointed. I can’t even believe they let a movie like that get so popular.. The eye contacts, the hair, the horrible “pale” makeup.. It just was bad to me. I was terribly done, and New Moon is my favorite movie, not just because I’m a Jacob fan, but because it meant way less of the cheesy ass idiocy they made the vampire clan. I liked some of the actors, and I did like how they tried to be the characters, but everything else just kinda ruined it for me. Sorry! Total rant. :D What I’m saying is: I hope Hunger Games is bad-fucking-ass, because it has so much potential!

    When did they give the districts official duties? I just looked it up and apparently District 6’s industry is Transportation. I could have sworn they never mentioned it in the books (Or maybe I’m just a terrible reader, eep!
    The lips are so fun! :D I watched the video on my phone last night but it really didn’t capture the true beauty of the look. By the way, does the cosmetic glitter feel rough and scratchy on your lips?

      there are some that they didnt mention in the books, but once the movie website came up, they sort of filled in the blanks :)

    It made me laugh when you mentioned being disappointed with the Twilight movie, I felt the exact same way lol. But anyways, this look is gorgeous, and so wearable in my opinion! :)

    I’m loving all the Hunger Games looks, you’re doing an awesome job! I’m also hoping its nothing like Twilight was (I don’t like Kristin Stewart at all. Her and that stupid eyebrow!).

    I’m a Technician in District 3 while my husband is a Perfumer in District 1. I think we need to switch. Lol.

    I love Hunger Games make-up looks and this is one of my favourite :)
    And I feel the same way about the movie coming out. Usually the movies destroy my perception of the book and in the end I’m very dissapointed. I’m even debating if I’ll watch the movie or not. I didn’t watch Twilight and I’m happy that I didn’t :)

    I have really loved this whole series! And I really can’t wait for some of the fancy districts and I’m really curious about what you plan to do for the Capitol :)
    And yes, Twilight was so disappointing, but the Hunger Games trailers look so good and I do think it’s worth all the hype (crossing my fingers like crazy). I guess it seems more likely that this will be better, because on paper Twilight looks good but translating it into film you are just like ‘Oh, a creepy vampire falling for some bland girl mixed with bad acting,’ idk I think Hunger Games has better potential.

    lol I did the card thingy too. Did you know you’re able to order an actual copy of your card? I saw the link on the Hunger Games FB page. It’s free, just gotta pay shipping. I don’t have mine yet, so I hope it wasn’t a scam for them to make an easy $4 over and over hahah
