FOTD: What I Wore To The Hunger Games Premiere! Girl On Fire Inspired Makeup

First off, The Hunger Games was amazing. Probably one of the best, if not outright the best, movie adaptations of a book I've seen in a while. Really, I don't want to spoil it for anybody because I've already seen it twice, but it was so, so, so good. 
I went to the midnight premiere in my area, and sported a Hunger Games inspired makeup. It was really more inspired by the nails I was wearing but that, in turn was inspired by the burning embers/burning coals look that Cinna made for Katniss in the Tribute's Parade.
I did a smokey eye - the base was a golden/bronzy base and then I layered an opalescent glitter on top. 

  • UDPP
  • Jesse's Girl Pigments - Sparkle Gold (gold shimmer), Penny Arcade (bronze glitter)
  • Mac Lantern Light Crush Metal Pigment
  • Mac Carbon Eye Shadow
  • Mac Rice Paper Eye Shadow
  • NYX Sparkling Glitter Powder On The Go in "Snow"
  • Stila Stingray Smudgestick Liner
  • mascara
  • Nars Laguna
  • Nars orgasm
  • Illamasqua Furore
  • Revlon Creme Brulee Lip Butter
I specifically wanted to use that Nyx glitter because it looks sort of blue/green reflecting in the pot, but when you layer it, it transforms into this fire-y orange color. Very much like those flakie polishes that you find that if you layer over black, they go super orange gold as well. In fact, I used a flakie like that on my nails lol.
The combination of the glitter over the gold/bronze base and then next to the smokey black just seemed very appropriate to me. I loved my makeup that day and in general had a great time at the movie premiere, so I thought I'd share with you all :)
I def will do this makeup again, who knows, maybe for the Catching Fire premiere? Lol. Idk. But still, loved the way it turned out so I hope you guys do too :)

BY THE WAY: if any of you saw the movie, what did you think????
