Urban Decay Electric Bright Wearable Orange Eye Look

Makeup Inspiration: a Wearable, Bright Orange Look

I absolutely love the Urban Decay Electric Palette. As soon as it launched last year, I knew that I had to have it. I bought it mainly because it was different from anything I owned and so damn gorgeous, but I didn’t really think I would get much use out of it. Boy was I wrong! In the summer, whenever I can be bothered to do an eyeshadow look, this is the palette I reach for.

Bright Wearable Eye Look

The UD Electric can be very wearable, as long as you only use one or two shades at a time and pair them with some neutrals. In the pictures above, I used Slowburn, a gorgeous bright orange, in combination with shadows from Too Faced Natural Matte palette. Here is how I created this super quick and easy look:

  1. I primed my lids with Too Faced Shadow Insurance and set it with Heaven.
  2. I applied Slowburn all over the mobile lid and blended it out using Honey Butter in the crease.
  3. I tightlined my upper and lower waterline with a dark brown pencil.
  4. I smudged Sexpresso and Chocolate Cookie on my lower lash line.
  5. I lined the outer half of my upper lash line with Sexpresso.
  6. I highlighted my inner corner and under the brow using Heaven.
  7. I finished off with Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

It is a very simple look and I often wear it during the day, as well as in the evenings. I think it would be especially flattering on someone with blue eyes, as the orange shadow would make them pop like crazy.

      Yeah, you’re right! I had blue eyes in mind when writing the post, but it would definitely work great with green as well: an orange like Slowburn, which has a strong red tones, would work wonders on green eyes!
