Electric Summer Eye Makeup Look

Since we're approaching the summer season, I've been using my Urban Decay Electric Palette a lot more to create bright looks. The look I'm sharing with you today features reddish orange shades with a pop of purple.



After applying an eyeshadow primer, I highlighted my brow bone with a cream colored eyeshadow and blended a medium brown shade into my crease. Then I took the bright orange and placed it on the inner and outer parts of my eye, leaving the center blank. I put a shimmery gold eyeshadow on the center of the eye lid, making sure all of the shades blend together nicely by going over all of the areas with a blending brush. Finally I placed a bright purple eyeshadow on the lower lash line, and I finished the look with eyeliner and mascara.





Products Used:
-Billion Dollar Brows Brow Duo Pencil
-Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil
-Benefit Stay Don't Stray
-Paula Dorf Aztec City Eyeshadow Palette (cream and brown colored eyeshadows)
-Urban Decay Electric Palette (Slowburn, Urban)
-Urban Decay Half Baked Eyeshadow
-Mary Kay Black Pencil Liner
-Maybelline Master Graphic Liquid Liner
-Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I hope you all enjoyed this look! Have you been inspired by the warmer weather to change up your makeup looks?

  1. That's really gorgeous!! I like the color combination, and the shades look great on you. I'll have to try and replicate that with the eyeshadows I have. (With the exception of Sleek's i-Divines, I'm not a palette person...)

    1. Thanks, Katy! And I think it'll work for you! I was intimidated at first, but pairing it with my neutral eye palettes really helped tone things down!

  4. Loving those colors together! I've been so busy and a bit lazy these days to experiment with color like I use to but I think when I recover from jetlag I will start pulling out my palettes.

    Enjoy your weekend :)
