Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Urban Decay Naked Heat PaletteI finally got a hold of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. I had a feeling it was going to be something special, and I was pleasantly right! This palette is so unique in it's shimmery copper shades. They are the perfect set of colors for a warm summer as well as into fall and winter.

I have so many eye shadow palettes that it has been hard to warrant getting any more for fear of duplicating too many colors. But this palette has shades that I have been searching for for ages. I love these shimmery orange-rust earthy colors. The shades stay true to the "naked" theme in that they blend very naturally to accent the eyes with a pop of autumnal color.

For once, I also love the dual-ended brush this palette came with. Normally I don't use brushes that come with palettes. Instead I use my favorite Ecotools Duo Eye Brushes. The brush this palette came with has a flat brush on one side. This flat brush is great for applying overall lid color as well as for general blending of shadows. The other end has a small round brush that works well for applying shadow to the outer V corner of the eye as well as in the crease.

I created this look for a music video of me playing guitar and singing. The eye shadow seemed to show up pretty well in the video.

For the look I created below, here are the shades I used:

Dirty Talk (a shimmery orangey-copper)  for overall lid color. I used the palette's flat brush to apply.

Lumbre  (a lighter and slightly more sparkly version of Dirty Talk)  for just above the lash line and in the center of the eyelid to add dimension to the eyes. Applied with flat brush end.

Embre (a darker coppery brown) for the outer V (corner of the eye) and into the crease with the round end of the palette's brush.

Ounce (a pale, satiny cream color, with a hint of sheen) for the brow bone, just below the outer half of each eyebrow

Ashes (a dark matte plum) for eye liner. I applied this with a damp e.l.f. small smudge brush to make it go on darker.


Finally, I used Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara and Lancome Color Design Lipstick in Sugared Maple.

Going-to-the-Park Look

Updated 8/23/2017

Urban Decay naked Heat Natural LookToday I wanted to try out a different color in the Naked Heat palette. I was going to take my son to the park to ride his bike around the loop, as I got a little cardio in, walking around the loop (hmm, maybe next time I should run...). So I didn't want to go too glamorous on the makeup, but I did want to try the Naked Heat palette again. So I thought I'd try out one of the matte shades for a more natural look.

Here are the shades I used for today's look:

Low Blow (a medium orangey-brown matte) for the crease color, blended to just below the brow bone

Lumbre (a medium-light sparkly peachy-orange) for the lid 

Ounce (a pale, satiny cream color, with a hint of sheen) for the brow bone, just below the outer half of each eyebrow

This look would have been more natural-looking had I not used Lumbre. But I just couldn't help it. It is such a pretty color. I think it is my favorite shade in this palette.

For eyeliner, I used Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Black Honey (my favorite color of eyeliner).

For mascara, I used Lancome Definicils Mascara.

For lips, I lined and filled in my lips with Laura Geller Lip Liner in Spice. Then I went over it with Makeup Forever Artist Rouge Lipstick in Natural N9.

Scorched Look

Updated 8/28/2017

Naked Heat Palette lookNaked Heat Scorched LookI found my new favorite color in the Naked Heat palette. It is called Scorched. It is similar to Dirty Talk and Lumbre, except it has a little rosiness to it. Maybe it's supposed to be like a sunburn color or something??? It is a shimmery rusty-pink color. I would say Dirty Talk is a shimmery rusty-orange, Lumbre is a shimmery rusty-peach, and Scorched is a shimmery rusty-rose. I did my makeup for another music video today, and I like how the color showed up, even with low light, I like how it was coppery-rose looking.

Shades I used for today's look in order of use:

Sauced (matte medium peachy-brown) for the crease

Scorched (shimmery rusty-rose) for the lid color

En Fuego (matte burgundy) for the outer V corners of the eyes

Ashes (matte dark burgundy-brown) applied wet as eyeliner

Ounce (a pale, satiny cream color, with a hint of sheen) for the brow bone, just below the outer half of each eyebrow

I don't think I'm going to use the Ashes shade as eyeliner anymore. I don't think it shows up very well. And it takes a lot of effort to get enough of it on. I even used the eyeliner brush wet in order to get more product densely applied. But it still didn't too much. Plus, I had a bit of product fall-out with the Ashes shade. There are other better and darker colors in other palettes that I can use as eyeliner.

After applying the Naked Heat eye shadows, I used Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara, and Makeup Forever Artist Rouge Lipstick in Natural N9.

After the third look I've done with it, I'm still lovin' this palette. I am glad that I got it for the tail end of summer, and I'm excited to use the rust and burgundy colors in it this fall.

Ashy Look

Updated 8/29/2017

Naked Heat LookNaked Heat LookToday I wanted to try a different color combination of the Naked Heat colors. I heard some people say that all the looks created with this palette turn out all about the same. But I don't agree with that. You can go more orangey, more rosey, more brown, darker, lighter, etc.

Colors used for today's look:

Low Blow for the crease

Ashes for the outer V corner (this Ashes color doesn't appear to be as well-pigmented as the other colors, but it does blend well)

Scorched for the center of the lid (my favorite color of the palette)

Ounce for the browbone

I used Mary Kay eye shadow in storm for the eyeliner, Lancome Monsieur Big mascara.

For the lips, I used Marc Jacobs lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I really like that color. It is a medium pink that is not too bright, but still colorful and interesting.
