When first reading The Hunger Games one may not have paid much attention to all the wonderful Capitol inventions for staying beautiful, but the beauty editors at Allure could not keep their eyes off of them. Here is a partial list they put together of their favorite beauty inventions from The Hunger Games:
Never a Bad Hair Day. Katniss finds she doesn’t even need a hairbrush. “Instead of struggling with the knots in my wet hair, I merely place my hand on a box that sends a current through my scalp, untangling, parting, and drying my hair almost instantly. It floats down around my shoulders in a glossy curtain,” she says. Even our salon blowouts don’t render those kinds of results.
Microderma-what? Rather than going through painful laser surgery or trying every miracle cream under the sun, the citizens of Panem simply wipe their skin clean of any imperfections with a full body polish. “Not a flaw left on your skin,” one character notes. Dermatologists, are you listening?
Color-Chameleons. While many of us go from pale to paler between the seasons, the citizens of Panem adjust their skin color at will to make a statement. In the third book, many aristocrats have green skin. “It’s a fashion thing—like wearing lipstick,” Everdeen explains. Gaga would be all over that.
