I am selfish. I am brave.

This is the second part of my Divergent series. Click here to see my Tori Wu inspired makeup and hair look.

If I had to choose between factions, my stubborn, foolish self would choose Dauntless. It scares me, much like it scared Tris, but I would selfishly abandon a life of comfort for a life of thrill.

As a Dauntless member, I would maintain my femininity with blouses and jewelry. Legging-like pants would allow me to maneuver and climb when needed. My symbol is the star because, well, I already have one tattooed on me so hey, convenience.

Which faction would you be in? What would your style be?

Today is the last day to enter my Divergent makeup kit giveaway. The winner will be notified and announced Wednesday. Good luck.


Divergent: Tori Wu inspired makeup

I am doing two Divergent looks inspired by one of my favorite characters in the book, Tori Wu.


She just looks like a bad ass. Today I have recreated one of her hair and makeup looks from the movie so I can pretend to be half as cool.

Her look is a much edgier version of a neutral eye and lip, and her hair gives the illusion of a shaved side part. I recreated the look using products from my new Divergent palette because let’s be honest, I wasn’t going to do a Divergent giveaway and not get anything for myself from the collection. Limited edition = need to buy it.



From left to right: NARS Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, Maybelline Rocket Mascara, Make Up For Ever Concealer in 5, Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked, Buxom Foundation in Meet Me Latte, Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown, Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder, Divergent Collector’s Palette.

I used Luminous Taupe (middle eyeshadow) all over my eyelid and blended Envious Chocolate (right) into my crease and smudged it along my top lash line. I highlighted the inner corners of my eye with Candor Lace (left) and contoured and added blush with Compassionate Copper and Rosy Horizon. I finished the look with Artistic Mauve over Naked. The lip gloss and bronzer are definitely my favorite in this palette. Both are extremely pigmented and the lip gloss is far from sticky.

Do you plan on dressing up as your favorite Divergent character for the premiere? Who would you choose?

Next week I am doing a Tori inspired outfit. Time to bust out all my black.

Have a great Thursday and thank you for reading.

Daylight Mourning Time

I do not like Daylight Saving Time.

I love cold weather and bright mornings, but I always end up missing long evenings and endless days. Even my dog was disturbed by the time change and demanded to be taken on a walk at 4:30 p.m., his internal clock telling him it was 5:30 p.m., his usual time.

Despite the time change, I finally bought a copy of Divergent by Veronica Roth, which made my day a little better. My boyfriend and I had fun exploring the aisles at Barnes and Noble and gasping when we saw something nerdy and fun. I immediately found Divergent on a shelf advertising it as popular teen fiction. I may be 24, but I still love a good YA novel. Plus I write for teens so…you know…
