Divergent Factions Inspired Make Up by StarberryCupcake Divergent Factions Inspired Make Up by StarberryCupcake
I read Divergent a month ago & thought about creating some make up inspired by each faction. It was fun, but some factions weren't as easy as others to represent xD

Erudite has a cold palette, from turquoise to blue with shades of violet and light blue; Candor (my faction, it seems...) has the typical black & white with an addition of gold; Amity is much warmer, with pinks, reds and fuchsia; Abnegation is softer, grey, browns and beige for it; and finally, Dauntless, with fiery orange, yellow, bronze, coral and a touch of brown.

NOTE: I've been told this so many times that I've decided to add it here as a note, I thought it was evident by the title but I guess it doesn't hurt to clarify: all of these are INSPIRED in the factions, they are NOT meant to represent something they would wear. I am aware that Abnegation wouldn't wear make up at all, this is my representation of the faction, not what I think they'd wear, that's why I used a palette that worked with my skin tone as the center of it. I hope that clears things out.

Seriously, it takes just a second, literally a second, to read the description before writing a comment like this, I'm going to copy and paste it for you: "NOTE: I've been told this so many times that I've decided to add it here as a note, I thought it was evident by the title but I guess it doesn't hurt to clarify: all of these are INSPIRED in the factions, they are NOT meant to represent something they would wear.

I hope that clears things out." Next time you decide to drop a critic like this, please take the time to read what the artist clarified, it's a sign of respect.

Look, I don't want to sound rude but I've received the same comment too many times to keep taking it in a stride just like that, I apologize if it seems too harsh but when you've put your effort into making something and the most frequent comment you keep getting from most people is not about your work or the dedication you've put in making what you did but that "Abnegation doesn't wear make up", even if you've already explained countless times that it's inspired, that it's your take on it, you end up getting really tired of it. I'm sorry if it seems like I'm taking it too seriously, but put yourself in my shoes: it's my time and my work and people prefer to take time to point out this thing again and again rather than comment (negatively or positively) about my actual work. If you think the make up is poorly executed or technically bad, I'd understand, I made this like over 2 years ago and I've learned more along the way so I'd understand the constructive criticism on my actual work; but this Abnegation comment is getting me on my nerves to the point that I'm considering disabling comments for this work. I'm sorry if I offended you but I'd like you to understand where I'm coming from.

I'm not angry or upset at you personally, not at all, it's just that I'd really like you to understand where I'm coming from, even if you disagree or if you think I'm exaggerating, that is up to you. All I want is for you to understand why I reacted this way about it, to put yourself in my shoes. I don't think my work is perfect, and that's why there are comments, to point out things we can do to improve. I promise I'm not angry :) I just want you to understand.

The problem is Abnegations don't wear make-up, they find it self-indulgent.

I honestly don't know how else to say this, I put it in the title, I wrote a note in the description that you can clearly read there and I've answered to every single person who has asked me about this in this very post before: these are INSPIRED in the factions, they don't try to represent the people in them and I'm not saying these are what they would wear in each faction AT ALL. They are INSPIRED in them, as my artistic take on each faction, judging by their characteristics and the colors they're identified with, among other PERSONAL choices. That's why I chose for Abnegation a palette that used my skin color as a base and worked with shadows and lights around it. I really don't know how else to explain this, I don't know if I'm not making myself clear enough, if my explanation isn't well written (English isn't my first language, so maybe it's me) or if it is just that people comment without reading the description, title and/or other comments. Really, I don't mean to be rude or anything of the sort, I'm just surprised that, despite how many times I've explain this and all the notes I've made, I still get these kinds of comments with the exact same critic.

Love these, although Abnegation would probably swear off makeup completely

Thanks! yes I know, I've been told that before but these are inspired in the factions, they're not intending to be something they'd wear in them, that's why I used a palette that had my skin tone as a base color.

I've been asked this a lot, maybe I should add it to the description: these are inspired make ups not literal, they're abstract representations of the factions, I didn't mean to say people in each faction would actually wear these. I couldn't leave out Abnegation, so I used a palette that had my skin tone as base and went from there with shadows and lights.

Colour and shading wise, I like Dauntless, Candor and Erudite. The other two are pretty, but I don't find them to be jaw-droppingly beautiful, and they don't stand out as much. I wish I could do my make up like that.

Thank you! =) I didn't want Abnegation to stand out but I did want to match it with the rest at the same time, which was not easy and I don't know how much I succeeded tbh xD
