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

So close to the end now, but the districts left are some of my favorite! Or at least some of the ones I know what looks I want to do :). So District Ten is Livestock. The symbol on the seal is that of a cow with two butcher knives behind it (kinda sick I know). So I didn’t want to just put spots all over my face so I started looking at different pictures of cattle. If you’ve ever seen a cow’s eye up close then you’ll notice two things, one that the entire eye and surrounding area is black and two they have long full lashes. Once I saw that I know exactly what I was going to do. This look was all about the lashes. Now I used white and black which are your typical colors, but then I also included some brown for the lesser noticed cows that are white and brown. So I hope you guys enjoy it and I’m really looking forward to the next two districts! Yay!

Oh my….I swear Lionsgate’s press department is working over time with The Hunger Games movie coming out soon. There was quite a bit of drama related to this collection and I’m so glad they decided to move forward with it. Now before you go all crazy on me for buying 12 polishes, I’ve never been a nail girl. At most I’ve had about 8 different polishes at one time and most are the same nude/pink color. So when I saw these colors there were some I knew I could wear to work and others I knew where going to be vacation only colors. But I do love them all. I don’t really have super favorites because I like them all for different reasons, although Agro is amazing (of course it’s green) and Luxe and Lush will have a special place in my heart since I was put into District One on the Capitol’s website. Enjoy! I will do swatches as I wear the colors, so it might take some time.

The third District of Panem is primarily responsible for creating the electronics the Captol uses. So appropriately they ‘in charge’ of the technology for Panem. When I first researched these looks I was at a loss. Then the new posters came out for each District and the ones from Facebook included pictures of gears and I had an idea, like honestly a light bulb went ‘ding’!! So enough blabbling! You can read about it, if you like or just go view the pictures. Enjoy! Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.
