CoverGirl Hunger Games Lookbook and How To Exclusive


In a TME exclusive, CoverGirl shared “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Capital Collection Lookbook on Friday, Oct. 11. Included in the Lookbook are the visuals and complete beauty breakdowns of all 12 District Catching Fire beauty looks from CoverGirl’s Capitol Collection.

Each avant-garde District look draws inspiration from the district’s specialty trade and has transformed them into a couture Capitol representation. To achieve these amazing looks, CoverGirl’s Capitol makeup artist, Dotti, used CoverGirl’s Flamed Out Collection and the new, limited edition Capitol Collection. Although the looks are not what one would don at the office, there are aspects of each look that are so on-trend for Fall and Winter 2013 and can easily be incorporated into an inspired new look to update your makeup for the cooler seasons.

Of course with Halloween just a few weeks away, going full-tilt with any of these looks makes for the sexiest costume at any party. And for the hardcore “Hunger Games” fan, like TME’s intern Mal, why not go all out for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” on Nov. 22?

CoverGirl’s Capitol Collection is finally here


As expected, yesterday Oct. 1, CoverGirl launched “The Beauty Rebellion” via the Capitol Collection. The highly anticipated collection did not fail to impress both beautynistas and “Hunger Games” fans. As previously reported by The Makeup Examiner, CoverGirl also released additional “District” looks yesterday. Currently, you can catch the how-tos for Districts 3 (Technology), 8 (Textiles), 5 (Power), 12 (Mining), 1 (Luxury) and 4 (Fishing) at the Capitol Beauty Studio.

The beauty odds are totally in our favor with the on trend colors included in the Capitol Collection, which includes lip glosses, nail polishes, nail decals, and mascara, and all of which were used on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” set. Yes, the products that were used in the movie are the ones that were launched in stores on Oct. 1! The Capitol Collection begins with Flamed Up Mega Curl mascara ($5.99) that offers a mega lash look via the “curl igniter” brush and is smudge resistant.

While the District looks may be over the top for your daily beauty, the Capitol Collection isn’t. With a full dose of perfect “Panem-glam,” the Capitol Collection is ideal for integrating this season’s metallic trend into your beauty regimen without going over the top. The Makeup Examiner isn’t a “shimmer” woman, but the Capitol Collection’s Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle glosses ($5.99) are a lovely avenue for TME to enjoy the season’s trend.

Of course, most beautynistas are going to be hyper over the nine limited-edition nail lacquers ($2.99) and six Catching Fire-inspired decal overlays ($6.99). Suitably named “Inferno,” “Pyro Pink,” “Sulfur Blaze,” and “Seared Bronze,” (to name a few) the lacquers capture attention for fall/winter and complete a look for any “Hunger Games” gal. The Capitol Collection nail decals offer versatility and ease for those that are seeking to punch up their nail look.

As stated above, CoverGirl has released looks for six Districts. Release dates for further Districts are as follows: Oct. 3 - District 2 (Masonry), District 6 (Transportation), and District 10 (Livestock). Oct. 7 - District 7 (Lumber), District 9 (Grain), and District 11 (Agriculture). The CoverGirl Capitol Collection is available online and at mass retail locations nationwide.

CoverGirl Capitol Beauty Coal Mining District (District 12)

Courtesy of CoverGirl

"The precious mineral coal translates to stormy eyes.

Our districts make countless contributions to society and we in the Capitol are forever grateful to them. To celebrate the spirit and tireless efforts of our districts, we asked COVERGIRL to translate the various industries into captivating looks. Our first glimpse of the coming collection? An avant-garde take on District 12, which mines the coal that powers the many workings of Panem.

To capture the dark, foreboding work of this district, COVERGIRL Capitol Makeup Artist Dotti created an eye palette of shades reminiscent of the iridescent natural resource.  “I was inspired by the interpretation of coal mining, by the colors in coal mining: the dust, the grey, the silvers and the black,” she says of the collusion of strong colors that enhance our District 12 model’s blue-grey eyes.

Of the bright, bold sweep of canary yellow in the inner corner of the eye, Dotti adds: “It signifies the power in coal.” The model’s monochromatic black attire and long, thick braid is a nod to District 12’s very own heroine, Katniss Everdeen," Capitol Couture.

CoverGirl ‘Capitol Beauty’ update


Ahead of a huge CoverGirl Capitol Beauty reveal, yesterday Sep. 25, CoverGirl sent word via messenger that simply read, “The Beauty Rebellion Begins 10.1.13”. This was a good indication that the brand was about to reveal another look for the CoverGirl Capitol Collection, and indeed they did.

Yesterday brought beautynistas and Hunger Games fans, alike, the look for the Power District (District 5), which was revealed via CoverGirl’s Instagram. To date, CoverGirl has revealed four looks for their Capitol Collection and have opened the Capitol Beauty Studio, with tips and tricks to achieve the looks for the Fishing District (District 4) and for the Luxury District (District 1). The look for the Coal Mining District (District 12) was revealed on Aug. 23, but the “how-to” will not been revealed until Oct. 1.


CoverGirl is set to launch the Capitol Collection on Oct. 1, just ahead of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Nov. 22 release date and just in time for the most spectacular Halloween looks, although The Makeup Examiner has fallen in love the fabulously rich crimson lip from the Luxury District for Fall and Winter. In the coming weeks, CoverGirl will reveal more avant-garde images for each district. Until then keep an eye out for the hashtag #CapitolCOVERGIRL, check back often for more updates, and … may the beauty odds be ever in your favor.

Top Secret CoverGirl The Hunger Games Catching Fire collection



On Aug. 13, The Makeup Examiner received a mysterious envelope from CoverGirl. Marked “Top Secret,” and with a “District One” embossment, her heart pounded as she knew it could only contain the most dreaded information. Well, okay, not really. Yes, The Makeup Examiner received CoverGirl’s Aug. 13 announcement of The Hunger Games Catching Fire Collection complete with a Lottery of Panem ticket that began with “Happy Hunger Games!,” but there was no dread … just pure excitement for a sneak peek at this year’s most anticipated makeup collection.

CoverGirl had first made the announcement in May of their partnership with Lionsgate to collaborate on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” both with makeup for the film and a collection inspired by the film. Since then, we’ve all been anxiously awaiting any word from CoverGirl’s Capitol City. With Tuesday’s release of two of 12 looks, (one for each district and inspired by that district’s trade specialty), the excitement is palpable. The Makeup Examiner received an exclusive sneak peek of two of the districts, Fishing and Luxury, and is sharing them with TME readers.

CoverGirl’s Capitol makeup artist, Dotti, used CoverGirl’s Flamed Out collection and the yet to be released, Hunger Games collection, to create the two looks. For the Fishing District (District 4), the model has been transformed into a stunning sea creature and for the Luxury District (District 1) Dotti creates a look of a model that’s been covered in gold from head-to-toe with a fabulously rich crimson lip. Perhaps an interesting look for fall?


In the upcoming weeks, CoverGirl will release more avant-garde images for each district. The brand will also be launching the Capitol Beauty Studio on Aug. 26, so keep your eyes out, and CoverGirl The Hunger Games Catching Fire Collection is expected to launch on Oct. 1. Until then … May the beauty odds be ever in your favor.

CoverGirl and ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ seal exclusive beauty deal


CoverGirl announced, today May 17, its first-ever major movie sponsorship of Lionsgate’s highly anticipated “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. CoverGirl will launch a first of-its-kind creative advertising campaign inspired by the film, featuring new products from the brand’s upcoming Capitol Collection from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which will be announced at a later date.

Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson lead an all-star cast in the second installment of The Hunger Games franchise, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. The trailer, which debuted last month, has been viewed over 25 million times on YouTube. The film promises to illustrate the exquisite splendor in the world of the Capitol in rich detail, and the film’s makeup department used CoverGirl products on set to create the film’s luxurious, high couture looks.

“With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire partnership, we wanted to redefine cosmetics’ relationship to film with a fantasy-meets-reality beauty experience,” Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager, Global P&G Cosmetics shared with The Makeup Examiner. “The film inspired CoverGirl campaign coming out this fall truly will bring beauty transformation to life in an aspirational, dramatic fashion. All of us at CoverGirl were captivated by Suzanne Collins’ novels and the first film, so we’re thrilled to collaborate with Lionsgate on such a bold beauty partnership with the release of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’”

Over the past year, CoverGirl has stood out in the beauty category with its addition of several new spokeswomen, including Pink, Janelle Monáe and NERVO, who, along with the brand, embrace beauty with a sense of authentic individuality and fearlessness. CoverGirl’s partnership with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is the latest expression of the brand’s passion and commitment to continue to break barriers in beauty.

Lionsgate and CoverGirl will be celebrating the movie partnership at a Cannes Film Festival Gala on Saturday, May 18. More updates about this exciting partnership will be released on CoverGirl’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is scheduled for North American release on Nov. 22.
