Urban Decay Electric Palette

Urban Decay just released their 'Electric Palette' which is comprised of 10 insanely bright, pressed pigments. If you are thinking that you love the colors but would never want to wear a look as vibrant as this, don't worry; the shadows in this palette make excellent eyeliners as well! You could always do a simple neutral eye and just add a pop of color for a liner. 

1. Prime the eyes to ensure pigmented, long lasting, crease-proof shadow application. I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2. Blend 'Savage' (hot pink) into the crease and above it towards the brow bone.
3. Trace out the curved shape in your eye socket using a small brush (I used the one from the palette) and cream shadows. I used the purple and green creams from the Illamasqua Paranormal Palette.
4. Press 'Urban' (deep purple) into the tail and wing, 'Jilted' (lighter purple) into the middle lid and 'Freak' (green) into the inner corner of the eyelid. DO NOT blend these colors heavily, just press them into each other so there are no harsh lines. 
5. Line the lower lashline and waterline, I used 'Deep End' 24/7 pencil by Urban Decay and a little bit of the Illamasqua green cream shadow for the inner corner.
6. Top the liners with colors from the palette, I used 'Fringe' (teal) and a little bit of 'Freak' (green) for the inner corner.
7. Add mascara and false lashes if you like them, I used a purple pair (now discontinued) to stay with the electric theme.
8. Highlight under the browbone with a matte white pencil or eyeshadow.
9. Finish the look by filling in the brows, I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in 'Medium Ash'.
