Colour Crush: Burnt Orange With The Urban Decay Heat Palette

Colour Crush: Burnt Orange With The Urban Decay Heat Palette

Neon, bold, or burnt – no matter the shade – lately I’ve found myself being drawn to orange eyeshadow. It’s strange because up until recently orange has never been a colour I’ve ever thought about putting on my eyes. I’ve always been a brown/bronze kind of girl and anything else just seemed a little too much out of my comfort zone… well, not anymore. Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette

Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette I was first introduced to orange when I was getting my make-up done from one of KIKO’s global make-up artists. I was told that orange was a universal shade that not only provides the perfect base, but can add depth and warmth to your eye when applied on its own. Even though that has always been at the back of my mind, it’s only been recently that I’ve started experimenting with this colour. Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette

Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette When I think of orange eyeshadow, I instantly think of the Heat Palette from Urban Decay (does anyone else?) So, when I finally plucked up the courage to give this bold colour a go, this was the only palette I wanted to reach for. Just like the Urban Decay 3 Palette (yes, I’m a bit of a collector), the colours were a little overwhelming at first. Especially, since I had no idea what I was doing, but I guess that’s the fun of experimenting isn’t it? Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette

Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette I took the shade ‘sauced’ and placed it in my crease, followed by ‘he devil’ in the outer corners. I then added more depth to my crease by applying ‘cayenne’ over the top. Now for some shimmer. I took ‘lumbre’ and placed it in the inner corner of my eye, before covering the majority of my lid with ‘dirty talk’. I then used ‘en fuego’ to darken the outer corner of my eye before smoking it out. To complete the look, I went back to the shade ‘lumbre’ and dapped some on top of my nude lip for a metallic lip look that blended with the shadows. Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette

Burnt Orange With Urban Decay Heat Palette It’s not my best, but I’m absolutely thrilled with the final look. I was a little worried the colours might clash with my hair, but I actually think they complement one another. I’m actually pretty excited to dip my make-up brushes back into this palette and create another look with the remaining shades. For the shadows themselves, I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Urban Decay, and to be honest they’ve never let me down. The shadows are very pigmented, are not overly powdery, don’t have a great deal of fallout and are long-lasting. For me, they tick all the right boxes. Are you a sucker for orange? What’s your usual eyeshadow colours? Is there a colour you’ve always wanted to try?
