Urban Decay Naked Heat

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

You must be living under a rock if you haven’t heard about Urban Decay’s latest addition to their Naked collection. The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette (£39.50) absolutely blew up on social media late 2017 and has continued to be a favourite of the makeup elite on Instagram. I got this palette as a gift from my other half on my birthday and I’ve used it regularly ever since. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes and have all of the others in the range. The Naked Heat really appealed to me as its full of warm, neutrals like reds, gold, oranges and burgundy shades. I have very fair skin and red hair so these work really well with my colouring.
They’d work well on everyone to be honest, I’ve studied and understand colour theory but when it comes to makeup I’m a firm believer in trying out anything. If you like the way it looks then go wild, that’s exactly what I do.

The palette doesn’t stray from the usual rectangular shape, 12 shades, one brush and a big mirror combo that the other Naked palettes use (I like this as they line up nicely when I want to take basic Instagram photos such as the below).

The brush is great, it has a semi-fluffy, flattish side, useful for applying colour, and a medium length domed side that is good for blending. I really like using Urban Decay makeup brushes, I carry at least one or two with me all the time as they are really handy for saving space in your makeup bag and also great quality. They wash really well too (I use Lush soap or shampoo bars to wash my brushes).

One of the main reasons I think Naked palettes are great is that they work well alongside other palettes such as the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette. The Full Spectrum palette is amazing but for most people it can be tricky to pull off solely bright eyeshadows. I like to pick a bright colour I like from it then grab one of my Naked Palettes and create a nice neutral-ish smokey eye then add a pop of colour with Spectrum.
Naked Heat works really well with this as I’ve used the Naked Heat palette to create a warm, orange toned base then added Hatter, Blindsided and Mean from the Spectrum Palette in the inner corners of my lower lashline.
