Hi there. I'm Gina Bettelli, Senior Artist for MAC Cosmetics. Today, I'm gonna show you how to get a Hunger Games look Effie Trinket. What we've done is we've already prep the skin. I've started with Strobe Cream. It's a moisturizer that adds a little bit of glow. We're using a combination of white and the actual skin tone of whatever you are. It's the perfect start for all of the other elements that go into Effie's makeup. Okay, so we're gonna get into the fun part of Effie. She's known for wearing really loud, bright colors so I chose to go more pink on the eyes. I can just wrap this color really wide around the eye area and then I'm just slightly pulling the color out onto the cheekbone. And the creams are really great to use as a start because eyeshadow sticks to them so well. So it allows you build up the look pretty quickly. Now I'm gonna go in with a little more intensity and using the same brush, I'm sort of saturating my brush with the color and I'm patting. This gives the most intensity color and then sort of sweeping or blending that I'm doing is really softening the color. So depending on the technique you're using, the same brush does both technique just depending on how you use it. Next, I'm going to add a lighter color. This is Pink Freeze eyeshadow. I'm just gonna press this right to the center of the eyelid just to give the eye a little more dimension. Next, I'm going to add some false lashes and then I'm just gonna line up the very end of the false lash with where your lashes stop growing. To really go there because Effie does, we're gonna add a few more pieces of lashes. I've cut up a pair of [unknown] number 36s and you could see the pair of tweezers and then you can just stack them right on top of these pair of lash. And then I'm gonna move on now to the rest of the face. So I'm using a concealer. I can just take out the sides of the lips and then going back to the White Studio Fix and just buff a little bit of that over to make sure the concealer stays in place. This is a product called Lipmix. It's from MAC Pro and I'm using white, Hi-Def Cyan, and Process Magenta to make a gorgeous lavender. And then using a lip brush, I can just fill in the [unknown] and kind of work my way out into that heart shape. You can take it to the next level if you like, adding a little pigment on top. It sets the Lipmix in place, making it an incredibly long wearing product and I think the final touch for Effie would be a little gem. So I'm gonna start first with a little bit of a cream color base. Instead of the pink, I'm using white and then taking pigment is the silver and then just press the silver pigment on top of the [unknown] to create a really beautiful, perfect silver star. There you have it, Effie Trinket. Let the games begin.
