Hey lovelies! I have been absolutely loving my Naked Heat palette recently and I always create the same kind of look with it so I thought I’d do a post about it so you guys can try to create similar looks if you’d like to.
My Modern Renaissance palette used to be my absolute favourite and when I didn’t know what to reach for I’d always go for that as I know how beautiful it is; but recently Naked Heat from Urban Decay has been the palette I seem to be reaching for most often. I’m not very creative and like to stick to my comfort zone of warm toned shadows so when I create a look I love like I have with this I tend to recreate it until I find something new I like.
Although I’m not doing a full review of the palette I thought I’d include some swatches so you can see what the shade selection is like (even though I’m sure most of you have seen this palette millions of times)
Now I admit the first half of the palette doesn’t look amazing when swatched but there are some great transition shades in here and some pale shades to blend out any harsh lines around the edges!
This second half of the palette is definitely my favourite I mean come on just look at those shimmer shades they’re gorgeous!
My Eyeshadow Look
Step 1: I’ve recently been loving the MUA eye primer, it only costs £2.50 and is an amazing product so I first put this over my eyelids and wait for it to dry. Obviously you don’t have to use an eye primer and most the time I still forget so you can skip this step.
Step 2: Go in with one of the lighter transition shades above your crease first, I usually use ‘Sauced’ and then deepen the colour with a little bit of ‘Low Blow’
Step 3: Add a darker shade into your crease and just above it then blend out into the other shades you’ve already added. I usually use ‘He Devil’ for this as I like that it’s more of a red shade but you could use ‘Cayenne’ for a less intense look.
Step 4: Add ‘En Fuego’ or ‘Ashes’ to the inner and outer corner of your eyes and blend out.
Step 5: I create a ‘halo’ eye so I usually add concealer to the middle of my eyelid for this part but if you don’t have time you can just go straight in with your shimmer shade. After adding concealer and letting it dry I then add a shimmer shade to the middle of my eyelid, my favourite is definitely ‘Dirty Talk’
Step 6: Go back over the outer and inner corners with whichever shade you picked to make sure they’re dark enough and the shimmer shade has blended in nicely.
Step 7: Blend out any harsh lines you may have and add some colour to your lower lash line if you wish, I usually just blend out whatever is left on my blending brush underneath.
Step 8: Add your favourite mascara/lashes and eyeliner if you wear it, also add your highlight to your inner corner and brow bone (I always forget this part!)
This look is so simple to create even though it has quite a few steps it literally takes me 10-15 minutes overall. I don’t do liner as I can never get it even and hate ruining my eyeshadow but this would look so nice with a winged liner! The shades in this palette are really pigmented so they don’t take much building and they blend like a dream, I’d definitely recommend picking this palette up if warm tones are your thing!
Here’s what it looks like when completed
This is a bit different to what I’d usually post so please let me know if you like this post and if you’d like to see more of them in the future as I have like 20 eyeshadow palettes I could create looks with!
Thanks for reading guys! Do you have any of the Naked palettes, if you do which is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!
