Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette ($54.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a very warm-toned (more orange/red-toned) palette with mostly mattes and a few shimmers. Like Naked Cherry, I struggled to use the palette on its own in a way that I liked–a lot of variations still looked similar applied for me, so if your experience is the same, the combos below might be a good starting point, but I know I’d be adding in more light and mid-tone shimmers along with at least one deeper shade (perhaps a deep brown or deeper, richer plum) to create more definition between shades.
About This Series
Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.
You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!
