{Guest Post}

The movie "Hunger Games" has been all the rage lately, and everyone has been going crazy over the Katniss braid.  There are so many other fun looks in this movie if you keep an eye on the Capitol fashions.  One of our favorite was the fun eyeliner look that Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) rocked.  He played Katniss's makeup artist in the movie.  We loved the sleek gold eye liner that he was wearing and decided to come up with our own spin on it!

Products used:  
Stila eyeliner in koi
Lancome matte eyeliner in Pink Pearls
Eyelash curler
Black liner for bottom lashline (optional)

This was a super easy look to create.  I prefer to wear eyeshadow even if the color is nude on my lids, but you could forgo this step or use a concealer instead.  I simply added one thick line of my favorite gold shade, curled my lashes, and topped them off with a coat of mascara.  I like the extra definition that a little black liner on the bottom lashline gives me, but that step would be optional in creating this look.  I love how neutral, yet flashy this eye look is.

thanks for sharing Justina and Jessica!
