Urban Decay Electric Palette - Eyes of the Day

From the makeup mess pictured below you can probably guess what type of look I created.

I have had my Urban Decay Electric Palette for well over a week and have been neglecting to use it. I finally could put it off no longer. 

I decided to create a look with 5 of the "eye safe" colors in the palette. I am with a lot of other beauty addicts out there that don't necessarily have problems using all of the pigments on their eyes. I say when it comes to deciding if you should use all of the pigments on your eyes, well only you know how your body will react. For example, if you know you have sensitive skin you may want to steer clear of using some of the pigments on your eyes. 

I always recommend using a good primer and an eye base under the shadows. With all of that said let's get to the look. 

Pictured below are most if not all of the products used on my eyes to create this look. 


First, I primed my eyes with a concealer and used NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as my eyeshadow base. 

Next I used Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette and applied Venus to my brow bone and W.O.S. To my crease and up to my brow bone as a transition color. 

I then took my Urban Decay Electric Palette and applied Revolt to my inner corner. 

I applied Thrash to the first third of my lid, Freak to the middle of my lid, and Fringe to my outer corner. I then blended each of them together. I also took more W.O.S. and used it to help me blend out the shadows. 

Next I lined my top lid with e.l.f.'s black cream liner and went over it with an Urban Decay black liquid liner. 

I lined under my eye using NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Electric Blue. I then placed Gonzo over it. 

I lined my waterline with NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. 

I curled my lashes and applied the Smashbox Full Exposure mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

And there you have it, a wearable, safe eye look using the Urban Decay Electric Palette. I found that the Electric Palette can be toned down my blending the shadows or can be built up by packing on the color. Just because it is a neon palette doesn't mean that the shadows can not be wearable.

Have you picked up the Electric Palette yet? Thoughts?
