A Capitol Style Makeover – The Hunger Games Chronicles

I know, I know, we’re supposed to have a new Makeup Utopia challenge this week, but I couldn’t move on from the Hunger Games challenge without doing a Capitol inspired Face of the Day.

Capitol Style 4

When I was selecting products to create this look, I considered which brands would truly embrace the eccentric and colourful style of the Capitol, and it was Illamasqua and Sugarpill that immediately came to mind. The makeup in this look is exclusively from these two brands, with the only exception being the eyelashes and eyelash glue.

I wanted to dye my hair purple especially for this look, but I didn’t want to fry it with an at-home bleach job, so I just did a dip dye on the ends. If you look closely at my top knot, you can see some of the purple coming through.
