Every time a new image is released from The Hunger Games, fans react like it’s a gift from their sponsor flying in by silver parachute. (If you don’t know what that means, you still have 55 days to read the book before the premier.)
But we have to admit, even we squealed a bit over this new picture, which shows Katniss before the chariot ride in the opening ceremonies. Her dress, which earns her the nickname “Girl on Fire,” is amazing—but what we’re really impressed with is the smoldering makeup. In the book, Katniss describes her face in this scene as “relatively clear of makeup, just a bit of highlighting here and there.” But from the looks of the photo, makeup artist Ve Neill either didn’t read the book (we’re guessing probably not so likely) or took some creative license (and we don’t mind!). Here’s how she got the look:
Eyes: Neill used M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Orange to create the flare in the outer corners before lining her eyes in black cream liner. She added Urban Decay False Lashes in Lure for extra intensity. “The more makeup you put on a beautiful woman, the more exotic and mature she looks,” said Neill. “We wanted to keep her looking really youthful.”
Cheeks: Neill drew attention to her “beautiful, heart-shaped face” by highlighting her cheekbones with M.A.C. Lustre Drops in Sunrush (a liquid gold highlighter).
Lips: Those lips (which spend the last half of the Games kissing Peeta) were amped up with L’Oréal Infallible Lipgloss in Fiery (a bronzey pink). “We wanted it to be clean, crisp beauty with touches of color,” Neill said.
What do you think of Katniss’s makeup? Do you love it, or do you wish Neill had stayed more true to the book? And most of all, would you wear it?

You have not heard much about House at the End of the Street and for good reason. It’s not going to make its spring release date.
The film, which stars X-Men: First Class and The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence, was anticipated to arrive in theaters on April 20. Relativity, however, has decided a September 21 release is more appropriate. An odd maneuver, considering Lawrence’s Hunger Games would be opening March 23 and one would think Relativity was hoping to cash in on the actress’ recognition in the film and its potential box office success.
House at the End of the Street also stars Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot; Mark Tonderai directed.
The film centers on a teen girl (Lawrence) who moves with her mom to a new town and learns that their home is next door to a house where a double murder took place. Complications ensue when the teen befriends the massacre’s sole surviving son (Thieriot).
In her Interview, Amandla Stenberg who is playing Rue in Jennifer Lawrence’s up coming movie The Hunger Games where Jennifer is the female lead; Katniss Everdeen.
Is there anyone on set who was especially fun to meet? There are so many people I was so psyched to meet. I was so nervous before I met Jen [Jennifer Lawrence, who has the lead role of Katniss Everdeen]. But then I became so relaxed when I got to know her. It’s really rare to have such a great group of people. The cast and crew of this movie were so fantastic.
