Allure has gotten the scoop on how Ve Neill, makeup artist for the Hunger Games movie, created the below look for Katniss for the opening ceremony.
“Eyes: Neill used M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Orange to create the flare in the outer corners before lining her eyes in black cream liner. She added Urban Decay False Lashes in Lure for extra intensity. “The more makeup you put on a beautiful woman, the more exotic and mature she looks,” said Neill. “We wanted to keep her looking really youthful.”
Cheeks: Neill drew attention to her “beautiful, heart-shaped face” by highlighting her cheekbones with M.A.C. Lustre Drops in Sunrush (a liquid gold highlighter).
Lips: Those lips (which spend the last half of the Games kissing Peeta) were amped up with L’Oréal Infallible Lipgloss in Fiery (a bronzey pink). “We wanted it to be clean, crisp beauty with touches of color,” Neill said.”
In The Hunger Games, Katniss describes her face for the ceremonies as “relatively clear of make up, just a bit of highlighting here and there”. How do you like the makeup? Do you think that Neill’s interpretation matches the book?
