Urban Decay||Electric Palette Eye Look

Hello hello my beauties, welcome back to my blog!  I’m going to make this blog short and sweet, just like me! (Pfft, yeah right!). I know I am a little late to the Urban Decay Electric palette game, but better to be late than not show up at all!

Here is the look I created today…


Please disregard my disastrous eyebrows. I had a bit of an emergency today. Which I will talk about in an upcoming first impressions blog. Today we are just focusing on the eyes!

My love for Urban Decay started more than 10 years ago, I believe. It was the first “high end” brand that I really liked, and I loved the fact that they had the out-of-the-norm eyeshadow shades. I got the Electric Palette for Christmas and I couldn’t be more excited to use it!  It is a little hard to create a full look because there is no base or transition shades, but it wasn’t that bothersome to me. 

I started out by going in with the shade Vintage from my tarte Tarteist Pro Palette.  It’s a great shade to set your eyeshadow primer with!  That was all I needed from this palette. 


Next it was time to jump into all those beautiful Electric shades! (Side note: there is a blue shade called Gonzo which makes me think of the Muppets and is also my dads nickname😜.)

The first color I went in with was Jilted which is a gorgeous deep fuschia!  It has a small amount of shimmer to it. I took this shade into my crease and brought it from the outer v to the inner v to create a halo look. 

The next shade I went in with was Urban which is the most beautiful deep purple color. Brown eyes and purple eyeshadow go together like peanut butter and jelly!  I used this in the outer v and then blended it in about half way through the crease. 

For the middle of the eyelid I used Fringe which is a dark blue/green shade. (Almost like the NYX shade Jaded, but darker.). I just tapped this on my eyelid and made mall windshield wiper motions. 

I used Revolt on the inner corner of my eyes to make them pop with color. This is a stunning sparkly silver color that you can’t help but love!  



Here is the completed look with no filter. I used my Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner. For lips I used a neutral brownish lip liner and then went in with the shade Khlo$ from the Koko Collection by Kylie Cosmetics. It is a long lasting liquid lipstick, and it is a great nude for my skin tone. This was my first time wearing it and I was very pleased!


Filter. 


No filter. 

I also took Jilted and Urban on my lower lash line. I used my 24hour Urban Decay eyeliner in black on my water line. I used Benefit‘s They’re Real! Mascara and no falsies!


I am so sorry for the lack of pictures through the process, I am learning as I go. 

I hope you liked this dramatic eye look as much as I liked creating it!  I’m a sucker for purples!  I love the Electric palette, I think it has some beautiful shades and I can’t wait to create more looks with it!

Thank you so much for joining me friends, enjoy the rest of your week!

What I Got for Christmas-Part 1

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you all had a great Christmas  (if that’s what you celebrate), and I hope you got to enjoy time with family and loved ones. It was just my mom, dad, sookie (my dog), and I this year, but that was good enough. 

Although I am 33 years old, I am able to admit that I am still spoiled by my parents, when they’re able to do so. This year has been a very, very challenging year for us. My health has been at an all time low which spiked my depression. Seeking help was definitely the best option for me, and I also found a lot of joy in watching makeup tutorials. This also gave me the energy to start doing my own makeup again. Makeup brings me a lot of happiness and it gives me confidence. That being said, this year for Christmas I asked for a lot of makeup, makeup utensils, and makeup organizers. Not to mention a few clothing items and such. 

Without further ado, let’s see What I Got for Christmas!

​ So funny story….I researched and researched on every brands palettes, and I wanted the most bang for the buck. I kept hearing mixed reviews about tarte’s paintbox set and too faced holiday palettes. After looking at the reviews I narrowed it down to tarte’s tarteist pro palette. I was like, this is it, this is definitely what I want!  Then I started looking around at other palettes and I found Violet Voss’s Holy Grail Pro Eyeshadow Palette. I fell in love with the colors “wine n dine”, “cranberry splash”, and “on fleek”. I mean, I fell in love with the whole palette. My mother had already ordered the tarte palette so I made a deal with her, order the Violet Voss palette and we’ll take back the tarte palette.  Well she surprised me and gave me both!  

The Urban Decay Electric palette was on sale, so my mom picked that up for me too. I love the bright and shimmery colors the Electric palette has, and I love that one of the blues is called Gonzo (my dads nickname). Not to mention, it also came with a dual sided eyeshadow brush that is incredibly soft! 

 These pictures do not do these palettes justice, they’re absolutely stunning. Once I saw the tarte palette in person, I really didn’t want to let it go!  I can’t wait to create all the eye looks with these amazing palettes!

I know what you’re thinking….ugh Karen, those are empty haha. Yes they are, but that’s because one is a Z Palette, and the other is tarte’s version of a z palette. These are so useful to depot your single eyeshadows or powder products and create a unique palette to your liking. They are both leopard print, obviously haha. The tarte palette comes with a mirror which costs a little extra, but is definitely worth it. Just waiting for my depotting tool to come in the mail!


This awesome kit came from Ulta. They almost always have these cool kits during the holidays, maybe even throughout the year. Ulta has definitely stepped up their makeup brand game in the past few years, so I’m excited to utilize everything in this kit. It’s basically your full face: eyeshadows, blushes, highlight, bronzer, lip liners, lip products, eyeliner, eyebrow tint, and primer. This is a great gift for a all ages. My mom also got one, but it was a little bit smaller. 





Yes, that’s right, I finally got my hands on some Kylie Cosmetics products!  The first item is the collab that Kylie did with Khloe to create the Koko Collection!  These colors include Okurr, Khlo$, Gorg, and the lip gloss in Damn Gina. Now I’m excited about all these colors, but my top two or Okurr and Gorg!  The next item I got was the Kylie Lip Kit in Merry. This comes with the liquid lipstick and the lip liner. I’m a sucker for reds! Haha. This packaging is amazing on both items, and I love that the lip kit comes as an ornament you can put on your tree!


These next items were really awesome gift ideas!  The Marilyn Monroe makeup bag was to die for and inside of it was makeup removal wipes, a contouring brush, falsies, and eyelash glue!  Some basic essentials for glamming it up!


Every woman needs beauty sponges!  This is the Earth Therpeutics Precisso blending sponges.  Brushes are still a handy tool, but beauty sponges help the product blend into the skin better and it doesn’t leave any brush streaks. 

The next two items are from e.l.f.  I got the Hydrating Bubble Mask, which I have yet to try and I’m dying to use it!  I’ve heard so many good things about it, and I’ve seen it all over YouTube!  Then I received e.l.f’s get glowing highlighter set. It comes with a highlight/contour quad, a liquid highlighter, and a brush. The brush is so soft!  I actually love e.l.f.’s brushes, they’re super soft and affordable!


Now, what makeup fanatic wouldn’t be complete without a Natural Daylight Vanity Mirror!  I am so excited to use this because we all know bathroom lighting in apartments are not the greatest!  I may also be able to use this to step up my selfie game! Haha

Alright my lovelies, this will complete part 1 of my What I Got for Christmas blog!  I know it’s a long one, I still have some more items to tell you about, so I figured a 2 part blog would be best! What did you guys get for Christmas?  I’m always interested in what people got haha!  Have you tried any of these products?  Let me know in the comments below!  Thank you for joining me, can’t wait to share more with you all!
