A sneak peak of the make up from Catching Fire

We covered the run-up to The Hunger Games movie last year faithfully, and it’s safe to say we’ll be doing the same for the sequel, Catching Fire, the trailer for which has just been released by Lionsgate!

The first film had some amazing hair and makeup, particularly from Elizabeth Banks’ character Effie, whose entirely pink look was nothing short of a masterpiece in our opinion – so we couldn’t wait to see where the team had gone for her look this time, and it’s as wacky and amazing as we’d expected with her made up from a palette of blue and purple, with crazy metallic powder blue hair.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss also appears in a Capitol-esque look, wearing her signature fire-inspired look – this time in the form of very-trendy-for-summer red eyeshadow, HUGE lashes, some interesting Cleopatra-style eyeliner and a half up half down braided updo. Braids are big in this movie too, and Katniss’ sister Prim sports a very cool one that wraps around her head to fall down the other side. Going to need to learn that one for definite.

As a lot of this film takes place in the Capitol (if you’re as obsessed with The Hunger Games as we are you’ll know this is where residents really go crazy with fashion and beauty) we’re expecting a lot more in the way of flamboyant makeup – we’ll keep you updated! In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
