Sugarpill Electrocutes

I'd been wanting the Sugarpill Electrocute sparkling neon pigments since they came out a year ago but I honestly haven't bought a lot of makeup in that period. I finally gave in and bought all the Electrocutes and the Heart Breaker palette and I'm super excited!

Now, lets be honest: Neon and glitter are tough things to work with and the combination in the Electrocutes is no exception. They're a pain! But since I can't think of anything else with a similar look, I'm willing to work with it ;)

Right now, my biggest problem is that with all the hard work of applying the colors, I still can't seem to get good pictures of it!

It's funny how Sugarpill's Love+ is an intense red but turns bright pink when blended out. I love it both ways though!

Smokey purple: Smoke & Diamonds revisited

What's better than both purple eyeshadow and smokey eyes?

The two combined!

Totally inspired by the weird purple-grey-brown that is my hair color these days ;)

I used MAC Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow which is an old, limited edition eyeshadow. But it's so. freaking. pretty.

My hair's purple!

Long story short: The purple hair was very impulsive - choice of dye included. It didn't turn out as I expected, but it's growing on me. No pun intended...

The best thing: Nothing makes makeup more fun than a new hair color!

What's the craziest hair color you've ever had? :)

I've done variations of this color combination several times. Yellow+Orange eyeshadow and some sort of blue liner.
For some reason , I just really like this combination of contrasting colors and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out this time :)

Absinthe + Nylon

It's still super hot and summery here (by Danish standards) and I can't think of a better excuse for minimal eye makeup and super bright lips.

Not that you'd ever really need an excuse for wearing Nylon lip tar, but you get the point :)

Also, let me take a moment to (repeat myself and) tell you how much I love Sugarpill Absinthe! It's super bright but also very easy to blend out and use in a look like this.

Bronzy, smokey summer look

Anyone remember the MAC Style Warriors collection from 2009?
It makes me feel pretty old that it's already been five years, but that's not really the point here ;)

I didn't go for a Style Warriors revisited look when I did this but it sure ended up that way.
I'm wearing Bronzescape solar bits on my eyes, Eversun blush on my cheeks and Brave New Bronze lipsticks on my lips.

And a question for you: Is it boring to see looks with old, limited edition products?

Graphic Green

I'm sticking with the bright summer colors but taking a break from the Electric palette. I quite like how simple and wearable this look is even though it features bright colors and a dramatic shape.

Fun, fun, fun! :)

Blown out pink

I can't even tell you how much fun I'm having working my way through all the Urban Decay Electric colors!

Could I have created this look without the palette? Sure.
But it seems that the Electric colors were just what I needed to get more creative with makeup again. Along with vacation, of course ;)

Urban purples

I have a lot of purple eyeshadows and I'm pretty sure it's my favorite color to wear. My very first eyeshadow from MAC was Parfair Amour (also the only MAC eyeshadow I've ever hit pan on) and Urban Decay's Ransom (R.I.P) was a favorite for a long time.

The Urban Decay Electric palette features Urban, an awesome purple, which was the main inspiration for this look.
Urban is one of the four colors in the palette to come with the warning "not intended for the immediate eye area" so I can't really recommend that you try to recreate this. Luckily, both my eyes are still intact ;)

UD Electric look

I've got some good news to share: I can officially call myself Bachelor of Science in Computer Science!

Also, a bit more exciting for the blog (but slightly less exciting for my life ;) ) : I got the Urban Decay Electric palette for my birthday = IT'S PLAY TIME!
