Hunger Games Series: District 6 - Transportation/Morphling

Hey guys! I am super excited to bring you district 6 today! For me, this was the district I always had a clear vision about, despite the fact that initially the district may seem boring to do! After all, what can you do with transportation?! However Katniss nicknamed the tributes of this district "Morphlings" as they have an addiction to the drug morphling and when we first see the tributes from this district in Catching Fire (yes I finally saw it and its perfection!), they are painting themselves to match their surroundings. In the books, it is made out to be colourful flowers which is where I mainly got the inspiration for this look from, however in the film, it appeared to be more camouflage if I'm correct?!
Regardless, I went with something fun and floral and it allowed my creative juices to flow. I hope you enjoy this step out of the box for me. 







Hello x-mas jumper!! :)
 

For this look, I found these stick on gems from my local craft store. They were £2 and had such a variety I'm surprised I haven't used them before to be honest! They were easy to apply and I really think they MADE this look. For the eyes, I wanted to match the shades of the gems, so went for my Sugarpill palettes to create a funky sort of eye look. It really pops and looks completely crazy and bright, so very fitting for the morphling district! Tako (the bright white) is seriously the best most opaque white eyeshadow you'll ever find and they are hard to come across. I'd seriously recommend if you're looking to buy one! So anyways, I hope you get where I was going with this look. To be honest I'm kinda loving it. Need to invest in more gems!

Keep an eye out on Friday for my first x-mas look!

  1. I just want to hold up a peace sign and say "flower power", haha! This is so beautiful! Gems always seem to give a makeup look that extra kick and I could've totally pictured this when I was reading the books and Katniss mentioned the "morphlings", haha! I haven't got a chance to comment on all your other gorgeous looks, but I've really been loving this series! You're very creative :D

    1. Haha thank you Jess. That means a lot to me! I'm kinda sucking at replying to comments and commenting on other peoples blog posts as I am keyboardless most of the time (stupid me decided to spill a pint of water on my laptop waaah!) I have an external but its kinda a pain in the bum! So apologies for not commenting on your posts as much! I promise as soon as the boyf fixes mine I'll be back in action!
