Beauty Blog: Why the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is Perfect for Redheads (3 Ways to Use)

3 Uses for the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

Okay, okay, you got me. 

As soon as the Urban Decay Heat palette was released for preview on social media, I wanted it.
And in true beauty blogger style – I got it.
A few weeks after most, granted, but I am now the proud owner of the most infamous make up product of 2017 (so far).
When I first opened the packaging I was impressed. The weight of this bad boy alone just oozes quality. 
The heavy plastic case contains 12 beautiful amber-hued eyeshadows to give you urges to fast forward to Autumn before the Summer has even ended. 
Beauty of the palette aside, there are some other reasons you need it in your life. Especially if you’re a redhead.
As the shades are a versatile array of red-toned-amber-neutrals, you can actually use them for more than just the eyes. 

The price tag isn’t cheap – at £39.50 – so it’s always good to justify the cost, right? 

3 Ways to Use the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette 


As the shades are all red-toned, this makes them perfect for matching to your brows.
Simply grab you angled eyebrow brush and get filling.
As my hair is dark red, I’ve been reaching for a combination of ‘En Fuego’ and ‘Ashes’. 
Blend it out and run a small brow brush through and you can find your perfect brow shade for redheads right in your palette, yussss.

Most redheads are pretty pale aren’t they? And I don’t know about you, but if I use a standard brown contour shade I just look like I’ve rubbed muck on my face.
Starting at the lightest end of the palette, I’ve found that ‘Chaser’ is the perfect shade for doing a bit of daily face shapin’.
A little goes a long way, so blend it gently where that cheek bone shadow should be. You’ll be well on your way to being the ginger-pale Kardashian you always wanted to be in no time.

And of course, eyeshadow

The possibilities of this palette are endless. You can use the lighter shades in the day time and go all the way to an ultimate bronzed glimmer glow in the evening.

My preference is wetting the brush slightly with a setting spray, which really made the shimmer shades pop.

Blend out with the fluffy end of the included brush and you’ve got the perfect Autumn make up look.
