The Hunger Games 'Catching Fire' Inspired Makeup & Outfit;

I finally got around to seeing the new Hunger Games movie 'Catching Fire' and as predicted, I loved it! I loved the videography, the over all aesthetic, the Capitol Couture fashion and of course the makeup. Oh yeah, and the actual story line didn't completely suck either :P
My favourite makeup look for the film was the one Katniss wore at the dance in the Capitol where she has striking red eyeshadow with glitter over an interesting double-lined wing eyeliner design. The rest of the makeup was kept fresh and delicate, really allowing for the eyes to stand out!

For my recreation I decided to change a couple of elements to make it more christmas party ready, like adding gold glitter over the red eyeshadow and obviously adjusted the eye shape slightly to adapt to my own eye shape.
