District One is responsible for creating the luxury items the Capitol uses. So I wanted to represent the diamonds and rubies they would probably fashion into beautiful necklaces and rings. Champagne and gold to be reminiscent of the shoes and clothing made for the Citizens. I hope my representation does my District proud. If you haven’t registered for your D.I.P. card yet, don’t worry there is still time. Just go over to the Capitol’s page and fill out the paper work so you can relocate to Panem. When I did mine I didn’t have a facebook account or a twitter account so I signed up for a twitter account and then logged in to the page and filled out a few lines and viola, I was placed in a District. Honestly it places you in a random district and you don’t get an option, you just are told where you are going to live and what you are going to do for a living. Here’s my D.I.P.

Can you believe it? I’m a perfumer!

Anyway, this look was the most intense I’ve done to date (for The Hunger Games) and I really loved the way it came out! And don’t fret, the fur is completely fake and very old, from my grandmother I believe. I almost forgot, this was done for the Capitol Couture website’s contest, to do a makeup representation of your district.

The final district, District Twelve. The home of Katniss Everdeen and the main setting (if you will) for the Hunger Games trilogy. Well it’s definitely the most mentioned. I had this look stuck in my head from the very beginning. I wanted to do something more with coal since that is their export even though thanks to Cinna (Katniss’s stylist) they are mainly known for fire. I played the fire element with my lashes and lips so the fire is still there, just more muted. I really like how my brows came out in this one, who knew it would only take like 5 weeks to get things right! Lol, anyway so I hope you like this journey I’ve taken you on but it’s not over yet. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve ;).

Enjoy! Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.

Agriculture. The main food supplier for the Capitol. The birthplace of Rue. The second poorest district in all of Panem. All these terms describe District Eleven. The people of District Eleven spend most of the daylight hours high in trees picking food to eventually send to the Capitol. In the Games Rue knows about plants and how they work to cure aliments. I really wanted to pull the greens from the area (since with all the trees and plants I know it has to be very green) but still give a sense of the beauty the area had before the Dark Days. I really like the way the eyes came out and once I took off the roses I wore it all day long lol. The coral lipstick is normally much brighter but I applied it over a nude liner and with a brush so that muted it quite a bit.
