Katniss is all about the braids – whether twisted to one side or bound up like a crown, the Katniss look also cropped up this season at Valentino and Viktor & Rolf. It’s not going away either – alongside the new Catching Fire film, it reappears for SS14 at Moschino, so be prepared with a good stock of finishing spray! The truth is, we all want a slice of that legendary lady’s style!
Katniss’ nod to the Capitol styling in Catching Fire is, of course, a smoky with a flash of metallic. Thankfully, a wearable version of this look appeared at Roberto Cavalli, Gucci and Lanvin for AW13 – blend one colour across the lid with a soft brush, and a darker hue along the upper lashline, under the lower lashline and into the socket with an angled brush. Dab a metallic powder on the lid’s centre with your fingertip.
In comparison to the Capitol’s outlandish makeup looks, Katniss’ beauty is natural and wholesome, as pure as her personality. Jennifer Lawrence is known for this dewy, youthful look off-screen too. Her secret? Illuminating highlighter. Gently brush over your brow and cheek bones.
Effie Trinket may not be everyone’s beauty icon, but she sure rocks an embellished nail! From metallic ombre paint jobs to bejewelled nail art, it’s a part of Capitol fashion we can all enjoy. For the ombre look, simply start with a base colour then use a cosmetic sponge to apply a second colour to the tips – easy!
