Copy 6 Hunger Games: Catching Fire Looks
Game On1 of 7
By Naomi Chrisoulakis
Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the much anticipated sequel to the 2012 film, comes out this week. And while we're invested in the Katniss-Peeta-Gale love triangle, we're also eager to see the best looks from the movie. We consulted hair and makeup experts to find out how you can re-create the styles in real life. May they be ever in your favor!
Do the Wave2 of 7
You can rock Katniss's wavy style with clean or dirty hair. "Use Oribe Dry Texturising Spray on the roots to suck up excess oil," says Calvin Louis of Los Angeles' Román Salon. "Make a center part, then wrap sections of hair around a one- to one-and-a-half-inch curling wand, with the direction of the hair going away from the face, and hold for 15 to 20 seconds. Allow hair to fall off the wand and leave in place as you're doing the rest. When you're done, flip your hair upside down and spritz on more texturizing spray. Rake hair oil through curls to make them fall into a tousled wave."
Red Eye3 of 7
Katniss's look during the tribute parade in the Capitol is appropriately fiery and rebellious, but it's also surprisingly wearable paired with a neutral palette. "Pat Becca's Papaya Beach Tint on your lids for a warm red base," says Kerry Cole, Becca Cosmetics style director. "With a brush, layer neutral brown and orange-based shadows on top, like the shades in our Sun Chaser Ultimate Eye Colour Quad, blending darker colors at the base of the lid and lighter colors towards the brow bone. Line the upper and lower lash line with brown liner and blend with an angle brush."
Pretty Plait4 of 7
Aside from Katniss and Primrose's touching sisterly embrace, we can't help but notice the little one's asymmetrical French braid. "Make a side part and comb hair in the direction of the braid," says Nick Penna Jr. of Boston's SalonCapri. At the end of the part, take a small triangular section of hair and begin French braiding towards the face in a forward direction. Begin to follow the hairline. Once you get to the top of the ear, transition the braid to the opposite direction. When the braid is diagonal from the part, gather hair to form a loose, detached braid and secure at the end."
Half Time5 of 7
"This look doesn't need to be perfect, so you can be a little sloppy," says Louis. "First, blow dry your hair so it's sleek but has volume. Using a one-inch curling wand, take one-inch sections from all over your head and curl them. Then brush your hair out, spritz Shu Uemera Liquid Fabric Spray for texture, and select a couple of wispy face-framing pieces. Finally, take two pieces of hair from just below your temple and twist them back and up toward the crown, securing with a pin."
Eyes Have It6 of 7
Sure, Katniss's dramatic look is part of her campaign to win the Hunger Games, but it's a good look for your next night out too. "It's all about layering eye shadows," says Cole. "Sweep a champagne shade over the lids, and follow with a light mossy green in the crease of your eye. Finish with a deep green shade on the outer third of your eye and blend the shadows. Line the lower lash line with a metallic color to make your eyes pop."
Classic Hit7 of 7
For Katniss's classic, no-fuss braid (perfect when you're training for the Quarter Quell, or in your case perhaps, working out), don't shampoo your hair. "Braids hold best on textured tresses," says Penna. "If your hair is freshly washed, dust with Shu Uemura Volume Maker Invisible Texturizing Powder first. Then, apply a coat of Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide Shine Serum and pull your hair to the side. Create a loose three-strand braid starting a few inches from your part and secure it. Gently pull out pieces for a messy look."
