For those of us not lucky enough to be born into the high status life of Panem’s Capitol, soon we can get the look of The Hunger Games’s elite thanks to Covergirl’s upcoming Capitol Collection, which is slated to hit stores this fall. But like the games themselves, the details regarding the collection are hush hush.
If the name and preview images (like the one above) are any indication, we’ll probably see products inspired by the outrageous and high couture looks often worn by the Capitol’s residents. The only question is how extreme they’ll go—bright purple lipstick? Large, delicate false paper lashes? Neon green eyeshadow?
What products do you hope to see from The Hunger Games universe?
If you missed it (or perhaps want to watch it a few hundred more times), check out The Hunger Games: Catching Fire sneak peek here.
OMG – Watch The New Sneak Peek for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Now!
As you probably know by now, we are huge Hunger Games fans here at Birchbox, and we can’t stop watching the new sneak peek for Catching Fire that debuted last night at the MTV Movie Awards. Katniss! Uprisings! Effie’s makeup! Prim’s dutch braid!
This may just be a teaser for the upcoming full-length trailer, but that hasn’t stopped us from playing it on repeat and making silly predictions for Katniss’s evolving plait, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s creepiness, and the epic competition between Peeta and Gale.
Unfortunately, Catching Fire doesn’t come out until November 22. But the upside is that you have plenty of time to re-read the book and debate how the movie will portray the—ahem—very special 75th annual Games.
While you eagerly await the premiere, perfect your Katniss style with our Hunger Games-inspired Dutch braid tutorial.

We’re big-time fans of Kiehl’s products! These are our favorites. Which are yours?
We loved the film-inspired concept behind Saturday’s Band of Outsiders show. Creative director Scott Sternberg looked to Japanese cult classic Battle Royale, which follows a class of ninth graders who are forced to fight for survival, while creating the collection. (Pop culture fun fact: In the last year, Battle Royale has often been referenced as a potential inspiration for the Hunger Games for somewhat obvious reason). The militaristic and feral influences inspired a clean, natural and slightly wild beauty look.
If we had to name just one style savante at Birchbox HQ, it would have to be Emily, our ops manager. First it was her shoes we oggled over, but now it’s her desk. Who else could house four drinks in her workspace and still keep clean? Click through to read about what else Emily keeps behind the walls of her cube.

I’m an award show devotee and in my opinion, the MTV Movie Awards is one of the best for fashion and beauty looks. Unlike at the Oscars or the Emmys, which are more buttoned up, the MTV Movie Awards give celebs an excuse to have fun on the red carpet. This year’s event didn’t disappoint: from short shorts and high buns to orange lips and peek-a-boo jumpsuits, here are my four favorite looks from last night.
Jessica Biel: One thing Jessica Biel knows how to do extremely well: balance. The beauty showed a lot of leg last night, but her dress kept her nicely covered up on top. What’s more, her stick-straight strands nicely offset her billowy sleeves. Plus, you’ve gotta love anyone who can sport a perfectly blunt fringe.
