Today I thought I would create an Urban Decay Electric palette eyeshadow tutorial. Several of my friends have asked me if I was going to make YouTube makeup tutorials, but since I am not really video savvy, I figured I would practice making photo tutorials first and work my way up to them. I decided to use my UD Electric palette today, since I am super in love with it. The pinks and purples were calling out to me today! Here’s a photo step-by-step of the eyeshadow look -
I’ll break the look down too. First of all, I prepped the eye area by applying UD Primer Potion to my entire lid. I used MUFE Full Cover concealer on the browbone and under my eye. Then I placed UD Savage on the inner 1/3 of my upper eyelid. Next, I placed UD Jilted on the middle 1/3 of my upper eyelid, and UD Urban on the outer 1/3, blending the edges of the shades together. On the inner corner of my eye, I applied UD Scratch, which is in the Deluxe palette. It’s a light, pinky beige frost. I placed M6 from the Smashbox Full Exposure palette on the lower eyelid, sweeping it up to meet Urban at the outside edge and blending. It’s a medium, matte taupe-brown color. Then I applied L’Oreal Lacquer liner along my lash line, creating a winged point where the purple and brown eyeshadows meet at the outer corner of my eye. On top of the black eyeliner, I created a second layer using a white eyeliner pencil. I also applied the white eyeliner to the waterline of my eye. I like using a white pencil liner on top or bright shadows in this way, because the pencil picks up a little of the color underneath and creates a subtle gradient effect. And lastly, I finished with a few coats of Smashbox Full Exposure mascara. Here are a few other details about my makeup here – my foundation is Nars Sheer Glow, mixed with a dab of ELF Shimmering Facial Whip. Cheeks are Nars Orgasm, and lips are a custom mix of OCC Lip tars in Strumpet, Electric Grandma, and Femme. Hopefully that all makes sense!
I especially like this makeup with my teal wig! I have a “more is more” approach when it comes to bright colors, haha!
