The Urban Decay Electric Palette was released recently, and makeup lovers everywhere rejoiced. If there's one thing that Urban Decay does well, it's insanely pigmented bright eyeshadows. Now, if I'm to be completely honest, I'm kind of over bright colors because, as it has been documented on my social media and probably on here too, I'm an old lady. But, that doesn't mean I can't have some fun every once in a while. 10 PM bedtime be damned, sometimes I just wanna play with color! So I did. But, to switch things up a little, I created a wearable look, a somewhat crazy bright look, and an avant-garde "omg-I-triple-dog-dare-you-to-wear-this-to-the-grocery-store" look. Read on for instructions!

LOOK ONE: The Wearable and "Office Appropriate" Look
With all of the intense pigmentation and general craziness that comes with the Electric Palette, sometimes you just want to take a breather and try not to pile on thirty colors at once. This look is incredibly easy, and ultra feminine... If you're into that sorta thing. On the eyes, I took a big, fluffy brush and lightly tapped it into Jilted. Then I really blended the color onto my lids, and blended outwards towards the crease. I also took a little bit of the same color and added it under the eyes. For mascara, I used the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara.

On the cheeks, I applied a bit of the Le Metier de Beaute Traviata Blushing Bronzed Duo onto the top of my cheekbones. On the lips, I pressed the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma into the lips. And that's it! My totally ridiculous "demure" look not included. ;)

LOOK TWO: The "I'm Ready To Hit Up The Next EDM Music Festival" Look
Well, it's music festival season once again, so it was only appropriate for me to create a "music festival inspired" look. After doing this, I realized that this is probably more "Electric Daisy" than "Coachella", but you do you, boo boo! For this look, blending is key, so make sure you have plenty of clean blending brushes at your disposal. Or don't, because like I said... you do you!

Using a flat, stiff brush, I patted Thrash all over my lid. Using the same brush, I added Freak to the outer half of my lid, and blended it into Thrash. Next, taking a clean, fluffy brush, I started blending Fringe onto the outer corner of my eye, and blended it into the crease. Use another clean, fluffy brush to really blend out this color. Next, I took an angled brush and lined my eyes with Chaos, and winged it out. I then cleaned the angled brush (or you can use another angled brush) and then added Jilted to the lower lashline, and also winged it out (basically making it parallel to the Chaos wing). Clean the brush again, and take Revolt to fill in the gap between Chaos and Jilted. Then, using my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, I took Venus and applied it to the inner corners of my eyes. I then lined my eyes with a black pencil eyeliner, and then for mascara I used the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara.

On the cheeks, I used the Le Metier de Beaute Traviata Blushing Bronzed Duo and slightly contoured with it. Then, on the lips, I used the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss Lip Tar in New Wave. Now you are basically ready to rage under a black light all. night. long.

LOOK THREE: The "I'm Running Away to Clown School and Possibly Joining Cirque du Soleil" Look
 All joking aside, I am totally into this look. Although I rarely play around with color anymore (because life as an adult is soouuulll suckingggg), creating this look brought back fond memories of my earlier days as a Youtuber. Plus, if you take away the blush and ~maybe~ only do the eye look or the lips, and this look could definitely be perfect for a night out!

On the eyes, I took a stiff fluffy brush and applied Urban all over the lid, and blended into the crease. To help blend it out further, I took a little bit of Jilted to help transition Urban into the crease. On the lower lashline, I used Chaos on the outer third, then Gonzo and Thrash in the middle third, and then used Revolt on the lower inner corner. For my brows, I used a combination of Chaos and Gonzo. For mascara, I used the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara.

For the cheeks, I started off with Slowburn. This is sort of the base color, so I concentrated it on the temples, and brought it down onto my cheekbones. Next, I took Savage and mainly concentrated this color on the tops of my cheekbones. This is more of the "main" cheek color. Then I took a combination of Jilted and Urban, and used this to contour.

For the lips, I used Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Flamingo Pose and applied this on the outer areas of the lips, keeping the center of the lips empty. Then, taking Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Sweet Nectar, I applied this to the center of my lips and blending it into Flamingo Pose to create a cool, gradient effect. Now you are pretty much set to perform for Cirque du Soleil. Congrats!


These are just a tiiiiiny sampling of the looks that you can do with the Electric palette. It's extremely versatile! I've even seen some people use some of the colors in their hair, kind of using it like hair chalk. The possibilities are endless! If you have the Electric Palette, what are some of the ways you've electrified yourself?
