How to use this new sultry summer eye makeup palette

There was a waiting list of 2000 people in Ireland alone. Urban Decay’s new Naked Heat palette - just on the shelves - has been one of the biggest beauty talking points this year.

According to the official announcement, the palette is all about “amber-hued neutrals, including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas”.

From a supersmooth red-brown matte and a glimmering copper to a deep, shifty bronze, this palette takes you  from sultry daytime looks to intensely smoky nighttime looks (and everything in between). 

Think you can’t make orange and red work on the eyes? Urban Decay’s National Make-Up Artist, Danielle Roberts, shows us how it’s done.
