The Hunger Games movie is upon us, Indies. In fact, I just bought my midnight premiere ticket. But how in the world can we stave off the pain of waiting a minute longer to see Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark fight among 22 other tributes to the death on the big screen? We have eight Hunger Games beauty looks for you to enjoy before the lights go down and the curtain lifts on opening night. May the odds of mastering them be ever in your favor.


Effie Trinket’s Rosie Outlook
Effie Trinket wants two things in life: to not be shamed by her District 12 tributes and to look fabulous all the time. During the reaping in 12, her rich plum ladysuit was complemented by striking reddish-purple eyes and lips. For the eyes, lightly dampen a brush and dot shadow along top and bottom lash lines. MAC Eye Shadow in Passionate is the perfect shade. $15 MAC Cosmetics

As for the lips, Lancôme ROUGE IN LOVE Lipstick in Divine Seduction is the perfect shimmering shade of copper. $25 Sephora
