2012-13 Girl finds out she can perform sorcery, get a mark on her hand, theres purple portals.

I believe this movie is from 2012 or 2013 and its about a rather young girl, she finds out somehow that she can do magic of sorts and I do believe she gets a mark on her hand, I think that all the magic she performs is purple and theres some scene where there's purple portals being used, might not be very specific but the actor that plays the girl has quite thick eye-brows that's about what I can remember. Theres also other people that can perform magic and there are people that are against her, you don't get to see her use it alot in the movie.
