Elizabeth Banks turned heads with her bold orange Versace mini at the “Hunger Games” premiere in Los Angeles and her unique dress provided plenty of “retro-futuristic” inspiration for celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles.
“I have always thought that Elizabeth looks a lot like a young Jane Fonda,” Fiona says, “so I used Jane Fonda from ‘Barbarella’ as a reference for the makeup—a strong brow, a black line on the eye and the rest of the face left neutral and glowing. It was Jane Jetson meets Barbarella with a dash of the ‘Valley of the Dolls’!”

“I started by prepping her skin and doing a lip scrub,” Fiona says. “After moisturizing, I applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #5.5, Tarte Maracuja Concealer in Medium, Benefit Sun Beam Highlighter along the bridge of the nose and NARS Cap Vert Bronzer Stick under the cheekbones. I set everything with CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in #30. A dusting of Edward Bess Blush in Monte Carlo, a luminous peach shade, added a healthy glow to the cheeks.
I used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash to fill in the brows, giving them a bit of definition and length. For the eyes, I used Three Custom Color Cool Camel Eyeshadow over the whole lid, and then the Warm Pebble shade in the crease and under the lower lashes. On the top lid I used a black pencil to line the eye, and then used MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack over that since the gel liners don’t budge once they’re on. I applied Lancôme Virtuôse Mascara in Black, and added some individual lashes to open up the eyes and add flirty length. A warm peach on the lips, Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Folly was the perfect complement to her golden sun-kissed skin.”
China Glaze Nail Lacquer has collaborated with the creators of ‘The Hunger Games’ for a collection of 12 shades inspired by the film. The Capitol Colours Collection is available now in salon and beauty supply stores nationwide.
