This is the second Face of the Day for the current Makeup Utopia Challenge – the theme this time around is the Hunger Games.
This Face of the Day is inspired by the death of Katniss’ ally in the 74th Hunger Games, Rue. I didn’t really have a solid plan for this look, I just picked up my brushes and “winged-it”. It didn’t turn out exactly as I had hoped it would, however I like to share the good, the bad and the ugly.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin in 20 Natural Ivory. This is a touch too dark for me, and I figured after being in the arena, Rue wouldn’t be super pale.
Tom Ford Cheek Colour in Savage. I used this to simulate a bronzed / sunburned / exposed effect by dusting it across my cheekbones and nose.
Urban Decay Pressed Eyeshadow in Secret Service. I used this to create a full brow, and to shade my eyes. I kept the middle 1/3 of my eyelid free of this shade.
Mirenesse Eyeshadow Trio in Keshi Pearls. I used the lightest shade from this trio to highlight the centre of my eyelid.
Australis Lash Length Extensions Mascara. I used this because it was the closest black mascara to hand, but after looking at the pictures above, I do think my lashes look rather thick and long – this is worth further investigation.
Gosh Lipstick in Darling. I applied this as a stain, to drain some of the colour from my lips for more of a gentle death pallor.
Ben Nye Bruise Wheel. I used this cream palette to create the basic shapes of the wildflowers across my face.
Sugarpill pressed eyeshadows in Poison Plum, Tako and Buttercupcake. I used a selection of my sugarpill pressed shadows to add vibrancy and depth of colour to the wildflowers on my face.
