I finally got my hands on one of the most talked about makeup palettes these days – the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette and I have a tutorial with live swatches on my YouTube channel.
It’s really a beautiful palette. I thought this would be very similar to all of the other warm eyeshadow palettes around, but I actually think it’s unique. It leans more brown, red and plum rather than orange and yellow.
As I said in the tutorial, because of the deeper tones in this palette, I think this is more of a special occasion / dramatic makeup palette. Since I prefer very natural makeup looks in my day-to-day, I don’t see myself reaching for the Naked Heat palette every day, but I’ll definitely use it for going out. I like that the palette is balanced enough to be totally self-contained. So if you choose, you can use just this palette to create lots of different eyeshadow looks.
Here are a few pictures of the more bold look that I created with the Naked Heat palette:
