So I finally got my hands on the Naked Urban Decay Heat, and, it. really. is. fire. First off, the packaging itself is to die for. It’s definitely been well thought out and executed. The shimmer brown tones in the sort of 3D lined casing is a great effect.
The palette consists 12 neural hues, with bronzy brown tones. 4 of these are shimmer colours whilst the rest are matte. These shades are perfect for creating a subtle daytime look as well as creating a sexy smokey eye with an evening attire.
There was a bit of a backlash for having similar shades as the previous palettes, I say , you can’t have enough nudes! The colours are versatile and pigmented, what more could you ask for? There are a tons of palettes our there, If it doesn’t float your boat, get you one that does. I’m pretty sure there are others like me, who simply live for neutrals.
I’m looking forwards to playing around with this, what do you think about the palette?
So I’m back with another beat of the day look. This time I thought I would play around with some more colours, I was inspired by a few looks by ellarie and wanted to do my own take on it. If you know me, I’m actually not big on pink at all, but you know what, sometimes you have to come out of your comfort zone. Looking back at these images, I really wish I would have dug out my pink lippie to really complete this look instead of my signature lip brown – nude combo but oh well..! The eyes were produced with three main colours, a beautiful deep purple shade on the brow bone from the Sleek palette, then a gorgeous deep pink also from sleek just underneath it. A burnt orange pink covers the lid which is from the mac (star violet). I do like how it came out, I’ll probably recreate this look even better in a few moths or so 😀
