I am so happy it’s October! I love this time of year and now that I’m finally living somewhere that gets a real Fall (read: not Florida) I couldn’t be more excited! I am already planning a trip to an apple orchard and pumpkin patch!
Let’s get back to the point of this post, Effie Trinket! I had to do a Effie Trinket makeup tutorial this year. I am big fan of the Hunger Games series and I always thought Effie was such a unique character. I think they did a great job bringing her character to life in the first film and I can’t wait to see all her unique style when Catching Fire comes out in November.
When you really dissect it, Effie’s makeup is pretty simple, but it’s striking. To be the lashes are key in having this look come together. Paperself makes these incredible paper lashes, and are the exact pair Effie wears in the film. However, they are a little pricey for a one-time-use item, but don’t worry because there is a much more affordable pair on the market that are basically identical! Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild have a pair of paper lashes in “Woodland Dreams” that are only $4.99 and exact match to.
To really bring the look together, you’re going to want to get a wig similar to what Effie wears. I found mine at Spirit Halloween for $19.99. To be fair though, even if you skip the wig, the makeup look is pretty and unique on it’s own with just the lashes. I finished off my version with a colorful blazer to complete the look.
Be sure to check out my video on this Effie Trinket makeup tutorial below, where I walk you though transforming into the lovely and mad Effie Trinket. I hope you enjoy!
