Happy weekend! Phew, this past week kicked my butt, but in a great way. Lot’s of swimming and fun with friends. I am sunburnt and you know how you get burned and just feel like crap the next day. That was me. I couldn’t human. Anyway, a day late but I have new Get the Look using the Huda Beauty Electric Obsession palette.
The look is inspired by the cyberpunk subculture once again. I have an obsession, and it’s inspired by this pictures I found over on Pinterest. I thought the colors and the images were so beautiful. If anyone knows the artist please let me know.
The title of the look is a Gunship song again too. I can’t wait for the new album.
If you want to see all the details on how I got this look, just keep reading!
The only palette I used for this look is the Huda Beauty Electric Obsession palette. Specifically the blues and hot pinks. Did I mention I how much I love the palette? One of the best neon/bright palettes I have used and no one talks about it! If you aren’t a Huda fan which a know quite a few aren’t I will link some dupes at the end of this post but for now let’s get into the look.
I started out with my brows done and lids concealed and primed using concealer and a setting powder. I had to go more full coverage on the concealer than usual because I am quite freckled from the sun despite piling in the SPF. I did only burn in spots I missed at least but the freckles don’t care about spf apparently.
On to the color. Starting in the transition, socket area, I went in with the brightest hot pink on a large fluffy brush and went HAM.
I ended up nearly bringing this shade to my brow but I started out kind of cautious because I didn’t have a real game plan. Just let the look take me where it wanted to go.
Next, in the crease on a smaller brush, I went in with the deeper hot pink. It looks red in the pan but it’s just a super vibrant hot pink that is a bit warmer and deeper than the previous shade.
This I focused below the lighter pink and blended them into one another. I went back and forth between the pinks building intensity and blending. I will come back to the crease and transition more as I go.
On to the lid, I went in with the matte blue.
This went all over the lid kind of messily at first and blended into the pinks which created a perfect purple shade. These colors all blend and play together so well.
Next, I took the shimmery blue on a flat brush.
I placed this shade on the inner and outer corner of the lid and blended into the matte blue slightly. I did some additional blending with a clean brush on the transition and really blew out the pink.
On the center of the lid, I took this gorgeous metallic teal.
I patted this shade on with my finger then blended it with the metallic blue. I wanted the eye to look like it was glowing in a mist of pinks and purples. Don’t mind the fallout, all will be cleaned up. I know it looks like a mess right now.
Here’s where things got a little tricky. I took Nyx Liquid Suede in Jet Set and used it as a template of my liner. Jet set is a bright royal blue liquid lipstick.
On top of Jet Set, I patted on the metallic deep blue shade and blended it into the lid creating a more graphic liner look. Almost like a cut crease but with the wing.
I told you I’d clean up the mess! With a pointed q-tip and some makeup remover, I refined the wing and cleaned up the rest of the fallout with a cotton pad and remover.
I went ahead at this point and did my face makeup before finishing up the lower lash line. Again, I went a little heavier than normal on the face because I wanted the skin to look very perfected and not covered in freckles for this look. Most of the time I could care less if they show.
Next, I took a flat blending brush and starting at the wing, dug the metallic blue along the lower lash line about halfway. I perfect it a little more in a moment.
In the center, I added in the metallic teal.
For the inner corner, I did a combination of Purple Horseshoe and Blue Ice from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Palette. Any blue purple highlighter will do.
I applied the inner corner highlight very generously, pulling it up rather high in the inner portion of the eye and over to join into the teal on the lower lash line.
I felt like I needed something more at this point so I went back in with the deeper hot pink and pulled it just under the blue on the lower lash line like I would with a blending shade. These created a more cohesive look overall and added just enough drama.
To finish the eye, I tight lined the upper lash line with black liner and let whatever wanted to transfer down on the water line transfer. This gave the lashes some definition and created a barrier between some of the blue and my eye. I find this step grounds a look like this because the blue of my eyes can complete with shadow. Mostly, the shadow overpowers it and washes out my eyes. It also washes my complexion out and isn’t my most flattering shade but that isn’t the point of the look. I wasn’t concerned with flattering,
Lastly, I applied a ton of mascara and done.
For the lips, I went with black topped with the metallic blue and teal from the eyeshadow palette to pull in more of the darkness in the inspiration pictures.
For the face, I went very pale and full coverage. I used a cool toned taupe contour, minimal blush and a shit ton of highlighter. I used the Moon Child Glow Kit in the same two shades as on the eyes. I wanted the skin to look inhuman. Like an android. Like I said, I wasn’t concerned with flattering. Ugh, you can see I got a slight tan too. This foundation used to be my exact match. Damn sun and my love of swimming. That’s also why my hair color is drab and I have foundation in my hair… it’s not gray I promise. Not yet anyways.
The Finished Look
Dear god, that burn/tan is ruining my aesthetic! I’m a futuristic vampire damn it! LOL! I used to never tan and now when I burn it gets kind of tan and super freckled. The freckles I am cool with but I like my porcelain skin. I have been swimming a lot this summer and a couple of times in the earlier part of the day so I got direct sunlight. We are planning a night swim tonight after we go out and what are the odds I am awake in the time when I need to be opposite for once. My friends have finally gotten on my night owl level and I goof up and go to bed at a normal time. I’m gonna try and nap.
Coming up next week I will have a review of the palette I used today and a super “flattering” summertime glam look. I like to balance out the more avant-garde looks with something nice here and there.
