Being Effie Trinket for a Day Using Sugarpill

Wow that's a lot of pink!  Follow Me on Pinterest
Last Friday I took the day off with my girl friends and we went to the theater to see (duh) The Hunger Games. I got into the spirit by trying to take Effie Trinket's "pink" look and change it into something that was a little more accessible for me. So here is my Effie-Inspired Face of the Day!

Me as Effie Trinket

Hey, it's far from perfect but I put it together in about 15 minutes after rolling out of bed.  I heard it took Ms. Banks 3 hours in hair and makeup to get her look. So hey, she had a team working for her! And my friend's daughter knew EXACTLY who I was when she saw me. So that, at least is something. Yeah I'm defensive. But you would be too if you didn't do looks like this often.

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • MAC Miss Piggy Pink - Patted over center lid.
  • Sugarpill Dollipop - in crease and lower lash line, a little close to the outside edge.
  • Sugarpill Tako - Inner corner and a bit dusted close to the brow.
  • MAC Stars n' Rockets - Blended all over then spread to the outside corners across the top of the cheek.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Perversion - Just used this incredibly inky black along the upper lash line.
  • MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder - lower lash line and filling in some gaps along lash lines.
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara
  • Mary Kay Mineral Foundation in Ivory 6
  • MAC Truth in Light Face Powder
  • Sugarpill Tako - To try to simulate Effie's pale face I just dusted this all over. Obviously I'd have to use it wet or use a different product.
  • MAC Cream Color Base in Slick - tapped over lips. This wasn't exactly the most ideal product to use, but I grabbed it on the fly. Next time I try this I'll do a bit more blue with something more conventional.  Perhaps a Fyrinnae Lip Luster combined with MAC Blast 'o Blue lipstick. Yes I said next time. I totally want to try this again. 
Doing a crazy look and wearing it out on the town was as actually quite liberating! And I enjoy my eyes with pink. This look actually got better as the day got longer (unless that was the caipirinhas we were having with dinner). I think I'll be trying Effie's teal look next. That one is gorgeous. Maybe I'll even do the Cupid's lips.

Did you dress up too and go to The Hunger Games?
