Makeup Monday {Color Challenge} Hunger Games inspiried look

Welcome back beauties to our fun Makeup linky party. Hosted by myself and Maria with Agape Love Designs. If you have been hanging around for a bit now, you probably know that this is not your normal linky party. We offer fun challenges and step outside of the box when it comes to beauty related posts. It's fun right? We think so. When Maria and I were putting together this Linky Series one of the challenges we came up with was a "Color" Challenge. One specific color that you don't normally see people wearing as far as beauty items. We choose Orange. Neither one of us ever wear orange for our eye makeup so this was quite the challenge for us both.

When I think of orange, I think of the Hunger Games. Not this fat girl racing for a burger...but the Book/Movie. I see that mocking bird...girl on fire. So that was my inspiration for this look. Plus I showed some love to an old palette that I had thrown in my drawer. One that I used once and wasn't too impressed with it. I am all about second chances.

Palette Used: Sephora MoonShadow Baked Palette. Verdict: I STILL DON'T LIKE IT. The shadows are too powdery and it takes a lot to make the color pop...even with primer and a base.

How bout it? Are you ready to link up your color challenge or any other beauty related posts you have worked on. Old posts are welcomed. Remember if you do not have a blog...Instagram, Flicker, Facebook or any other media site you share on are welcome. Please remember to link up the specific post not your whole site.
