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.

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
