A couple months back, Meggan from Cardigan Jezebel ran a giveaway on Twitter to win the Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Palette which I won, but I’ve been so busy I’ve only just got around to having a proper play with it!
I mostly disagree with wearing certain colours for seasons because I advocate wearing whatever the hell you want all year round. That being said, I’ve really been enjoying the warm tones recently. I think they just totally match my mood right now and they’re really easy to throw on when I don’t want to wear much makeup because I’m sweating it all straight off.
This palette consists of 6 warm-toned shades from lighter to darker. The obvious look here is to use the lighter shades in the inner corner and as transition shades beneath the eyebrow and to create a warm smokey eye. I’m not going to lie, that’s exactly what I did. It might surprise you to find out that this is actually the first Naked palette I’ve owned. Honestly, I’ve never found any of them very interesting. Browns just don’t excite me when it comes to eyeshadow but the Morphe 35OM Palette is one of my faves mainly for the brighter orangey/red shades so the Naked Petite Heat Palette really speaks to me for that reason.
All that in mind, the colours in the Naked palette are SO pigmented with barely any fallout and the colour payoff is incredible. I’ve been living for the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion as it makes my eyeshadow stick all day with no creasing, and it works like a charm with these shadows.
Everything is hot right now. This palette, these shades, THE FREAKING SUN. You can tell the weather is too hot for me in that I’ve forgone eyeliner! I literally never go anywhere without eyeliner but it’s too damn hot. Instead, I used washi tape to make a really clean line to create the illusion of eyeliner.
Like I said earlier, I did the obvious and used this palette for a warm smokey eye. I used shade Vibrate as the transition shade and to blend into the inner corner, Hot Spell in my crease, Wild Thing all over the lid and a blend of Heist and Stroke in the outer corner.
The rest of my face I did as usual, and to top it off I added the Too Faced Melted Berry Lipstick. Fun fact – I actually hated this lipstick when I bought it. I didn’t do any research and thought it was a matte formula, which it isn’t. Luckily my tastes expanded and now I love it, plus the shade is stunning. I think the raspberry colour really goes with this look too.
I’d love to know what you think of this more neutral makeup look on me! It’s way more natural than something I’d normally do but I’m really liking it, especially when it’s less makeup to sweat off my face in this heatwave! What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
