I love a good day time smoky eye. It gives your eyes a subtle yet dramatic look that can turn any plain look to glam. Urban Decay is an OG in the beauty community and known for its high-quality naked palettes. I have a couple of the palettes in my make up collection so today I wanted to share a look I created from them. If you like fiery orange and true reds & browns then you'll love the naked heat palette by Urban Decay. I know that sometimes it can be difficult to come up with looks that's why I created this Dirty Talk inspired tutorial using the Naked Heat Palette.
You can use any brand of brushes, but my favorites are by Sigma. If you're tight on cash, you may want to look into buying eyeshadow brushes from ELF. I have a few and they are pretty good if you're just starting out with makeup and on a budget.
The Shadows I Used From The Naked Heat Palette:
Dirty Talk (eyelid)
Cayenne (from brow arch to eyelid)
En Fuego (crease)
Ashes (outer corner)
Ounce (inner corner)
Create The Look:
Before your brush even hits the pan, you want to take your primer and apply it all over the eyelid extending to your brow arch. When I use my Urban Decay Primer Potion, I apply a few swipes directly on my eyelid then use my ring finger to blend in and cover my entire eye.
Once that's done, take an eye shading brush and apply the shade, Cayenne, from lid to brow after tapping off any excess product. Blend with a fluffy tapered brush.
Now with the tapered side of the double end naked heat brush, apply the shade En Fuego in the crease (tap off excess before applying). You'll want to blend 3/4 of the way in - back and forth. Next, take your fluffy tapered brush and finish blending your crease. Except for this time, you will use circular motions back and forth.
When you've finished blending there should be no harsh lines. If there are continue to blend and try switching up the motions. You're ready to apply the main eyeshadow that will be the main focal point of this look.
Take your eye shading brush and wipe it off with a towel or tissue before patting it gently on to the shade, Dirty Talk. Tap off excess. Apply Dirty Talk to your eyelid then with that same brush, blend upward to the arch of your brow. Don't get too excited because you'll want to leave about an inch or 1/2 inch space between your brow arch and where the eyeshadow stops.
We're to the final steps! In the outer corner of your eye, apply the shade, Ashes, after you've tapped off the excess. You'll want to press the shade into the corner of your eye with a pencil brush. Blend in a circular motion with a fluffy tapered brush. To increase the dramatic, smoky eye effect, take the naked heat double-ended brush and apply more of the shade, Ashes. Use the squared shape end then blend with the fluffy tapered brush.
With the pencil brush, add Ounce to the inner corner of your eye.
If you still notice any harsh lines, don't be afraid to take the fluffy tapered brush and blend certain sections or the entire lid at one time. Add as much product and blend out as much as you need to create your desired look. For a smokier effect add En Fuego and Ashes to the lower lash line about 1/2 way in.
This is the time to apply eyeliner, mascara or false lashes. You can now go on to do the rest of your make up. Don't forget your highlighter and brows!
