After a few sips of my delicious mojito mocktail we were ready to get started. Urban Decay's key artist Haddie went about discussing how we were going to learn to acheive three different stages of looks with the new palette. Starting with a subtle day look... And ending with an intense colour explosion at the end!
- FREAK - bright green with gold shift
- THRASH - bright lime green matte with floating gold pearl
- REVOLT - bright metallic silver shimmer with silver glitter
- GONZO - bright turquoise matte with floating tonal pearl
- SLOWBURN - bright red-orange matte with floating pearl
- SAVAGE - bright hot pink matte
- FRINGE - bright metallic teal
- CHAOS - bright blue matte with floating tonal pearl
- JILTED - bright metallic fuchsia with blue shift
- URBAN - bright metallic purple
And as these are pressed pigments the colour is much more vibrant than a normal shadow.
Some colours are matte and some have a shimmer.
So back to the masterclass.... As usual always apply your eye make up first, especially if you are using a heavy eye - you don't want drop out ruining your entire look and ALWAYS use an eyeshadow primer. I personally love the Urban Decay Primer Potion... And Urban Decay recommend you use the Eden primer for looks with the Electric Palette.
The first look that was worked on was a simple pretty eye mixing shades from the Naked 3 palette in Strange, Darkside and Nooner mixed with Savage from this one. The result? An ultra pretty simple look showing that you don't need to go all out each time you use this palette.
The next step was to introduce more colour and create a liveable look using the boldness of the palette. Again the idea is to mix in the shades from Naked 3 but this time Haddie used; Savage, Chaos, Freak and Thrash from this palette. At this stage matching 24/7 pencils in Freak and Chaos were applied along with a black liquid liner and Big Fatty mascara.
(Sorry for the light in the pic, the sun was blaring through the window. Hopefully you can see well enough)
Final step - all out colour chaos! Using additional Electric colours in; Gonzo, Slowburn, Jilted and Urban and also applying colour to the brows. Haddie went on to demonstrate how these colours can also be used as blush or if you are really bold - through the brows too.
Haddie then completed the look using Urban Decay's Naked Skin range of products, lashes in "Babydoll" and applied the Jilted pigment mixed with Pore Perfection primer to create a paste suitable for lips - showing just how many uses this palette has away from the conventional eye make up. Finish with glitter and Voila!
I also forget to mention.... The palette can also be used in the hair! Obviously it will work best on lighter shades but you can see in the picture above it has a great effect.
This palette may seem shocking at first, but the master class opened my eyes to the other ways this palette can be used!
The Electric Palette retails for £37. It's perfect for the summer and any festival lover will love this palette.
Will you be trying this palette or are you more of a Naked palette fan?
