Posts Tagged ‘Effie Trinket’

Where on Earth have I been? Well this past week I’ve not been feeling the best so updates/looks have pretty much stopped. However this past Saturday (almost a week ago!) I had a photo shoot with my aunt. Yup, a full fledge makeup, outfit, location photo shoot! So I really wanted to portray a Citizen of the Capitol from The Hunger Games, but I wanted to go a tad more extreme then just makeup. So after trying to do this for weeks, I finally got a date planned and a look planned! I’m so excited to finally post these photos and share with everyone out there. Now this look started out as a random citizen, but once we started shooting we kept giving my aunt Effie references so this became a neo-Effie look. Had I known that when I started I would have tried to make her makeup look more like her at some point. So Enjoy!

Can I say how much I loved reading Effie Trinket’s parts in the book? She reminded me of a retroish Glinda. I love every photo I’ve seen of her because you never know what you’re going to see. I’ve seen several tutorials and looks of her pink Reaping Day look and the look for the “Color from the Capitol” nail polish campaign (pink shadow, paper lashes). However I didn’t see too many if any recreations of her teal top look. The colors are way more daring then the other looks so it takes several tried to get things to look right. I really love the way it came out and I think I took way to many photos (206) because I was loving the look and having an Effie-esque attitude. In the photos I’ve seen of her they cover her brows, but I’ve been having an issue lately with mine so I didn’t want to put them through any more stress. I hope you enjoy!
