Glamour has compiled “6 Secrets You Need to Know” from The Hunger Games. While some of the “secrets” are already known by most fans (other actresses who were up for Katniss, Suzanne Collins’ background in TV), there is some new and interesting info, plus two new stills of Katniss and Effie.
Katniss’s archery skills are real. Twenty-one-year-old Lawrence trained with Olympic archer Khatuna Lorig. “She shot about 100 arrows a day on an Olympic-style bow,” says Lorig. “Her technique was great!”
The movie used 35 full-time makeup artists. And there were more than 450 wigs on set to create the Hunger Games look, according to Linda Flowers, the movie’s hair director. For her freaky look as Effie Trinket, above, Elizabeth Banks was airbrushed with pale pink foundation and had a different eye makeup design for each outfit.
You can buy these eyelashes! Makeup artist Ve Neill used these super-edgy false eyelashes on Katniss and Effie for the final ceremony scene. Into it? They’re selling at paperselfstore.com for $19 a pair.
