What up guys. Time for a new makeup tutorial! Today I have this look called Retro Futurism. In a similar vein as my Tech Noir look it’s inspired by Gunship and vaporwave retro tech aesthetic. I have really been inspired to play with colors based on some of the retro-futurism artwork I have been coming across as well as the music.
And the Huda Beauty Electric Obsession Palette is perfect for creating bold and colorful looks. Seriously, if you like color check that palette out. Anyway, if you want to see how I got this look, just keep reading below.
For this look, I wanted to use bright peach, hot pink, purple and teal blue paired with a bright peach liner all the drama.
The star of this look is the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette. I used just this palette for the eyeshadows.
I mean, this is retro-futurism in a palette.
Let’s get started. As usual, I am started out with my eyes primed and brows done.
The first shade I am going in with is this vibrant peach to start building up the transition in the crease and socket area on a large fluffy brush.
Yeah, that’s my husband in the background. LOL! Overwatching it up. Anyway, I really blew out the peach all throughout the transition. This color is so pretty. It would great on its own with some mascara.
Moving on to the yellow shade.
I “lightly” blended the yellow around the peach to give a light yellow haze. I added more peach later to blend it better.
Adding in some more depth and color I went in next with this hot pink shade. It looks red in the pan but goes on as a hot warm pink.
I put this bright warm pink right into the crease and blended it with the peach.
For the lid, I went in with this matte deep teal shade.
It comes off more of a bright blue on the lid and blends beautifully with the warm pink to create a purple which deepens the crease up perfectly without getting muddy at all. I love the way these shades blend together and flow.
Next, I started working on the liner. I carved out where I wanted the liner with some concealer to create a bright base.
I went over the top of the concealer with Nyx Liquid Suede in Foiled Again.
It wasn’t quite bold enough so I went over the top of that with peach eyeshadow to set the liner and really punch up the pigmentation. After that, I made sure I liked the blend of the colors and amped up any shades that were lost like the peach in the transition. This is one of those looks where you have to play a little and do a lot of blending.
On to the lower lash line I went in with the blue along the lower lash line.
Then blended in the warm pink at the outer corner to get the purple shade and to blend into the shadow at the outer corner on the lid.
For just a touch of shimmer on the lower lash line, I took the metallic teal and patted it just over the inner part of the blue.
And did more last minute blending to make sure all the shades were present and vibrant.
The Finished Eye
I finished off the eye with a few coats of mascara, I thought about adding lashes but I thought they would overwhelm the liner. I feel like the liner could look better but this is where I ended up.
For the lips I kept them softer for once by using the same Nyx Liquid Suede in Foiled Again patted on the lips and then topped with a gloss.
The Finished Look
And here is the finished look. I had a blast doing something outside my usual style and playing with neon shades. I never use blue some that was def something different for me.
For blush, I went with a bright pinky coral as well to pull in an 80’s vibe.
And that’s the look. I hope you guys enjoyed it. I want to keep playing with colors and testing my boundaries with creativity and not just do dark spooky looks or wearable looks. Life’s to short to not have fun.
Sorry, I have been a little inconsistent but I have been having a hell of a time sleeping lately. I am stuck in Vampire mode and there is nothing in my subconscious but frustration and nightmare fuel apparently. Anyway, I am working on all my tops picks for Spring and Summer for makeup and my Spring Summer Capsule Wardrobe. I’ll see ya later!
