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!

Grain…yup grain. So I realize that most of the District looks are very extreme. Nothing you would wear out day to day. With grain I wanted to do something less extreme. I didn’t want this to just be an experiment of what can I glue to my face. So short of buying some bits of oatmeal and sticking it to my face (I thought about it) this is the look I came up with. I wanted to use my loose pigments for this look and I actually really liked them. I thought I was going to hate them and that I was going to have bits of shadow everywhere but they stuck to the pencils fairly nicely. If you look at the crease of my eyes then you’ll see a hint of a red color. Originally I had used a red from the 120 palette and I hated how it looked. So I just placed Wild over it and it looked much better. The first face picture is with a flash and natural light so that’s why I look like a ghost. The 2nd face is with just flash.

Oh my! I need to update more often! I had all the images done but I was procrastinating on posting anything, so I apologize for that! Anyway, District Eight in Textiles. They are responsible for making the textiles that other districts clothe themselves in and for the clothes that the Capitol Wears. Peacekeeper uniforms are their main export however. I wanted something that really represented the making of clothes but when I tried fabric pieces they looked really off. I tried using some netting but it didn’t show up either. So I decided on buttons! The white buttons represent the white color of the Peacekeeper uniforms and the colored sequins are for the very colorful clothes the citizens of the Capitol wear. Note to self; when glueing sequins to your face, the brighter ones pinks and oranges will leave some coloring staining behind.
Enjoy! Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.

As soon as I was done with Transportation I knew exactly what I wanted to do for District Seven and Lumber! Have you ever had a moment when you were doing what you normally do and you feel less than adequate? Well after District Six I was feeling like I really couldn’t do anything and wanted to stop. I’m so glad I didn’t! I don’t think I’m amazing or anything like that but I do think that this is exactly what I wanted this to look like. I added the small hint of green under my eyes after I took a few pictures because even though District Seven mainly handles lumber, one of the past winners, Johanna Mason, states that pine needles remind her of home. So I figured there have to be some actual trees left, right?
