Yesterday, I woke up to some snow outside my window. I never cared for the cold but watching it snow outside the window really gives me a good feeling inside.

The Norwegian weather is really a weird thing, though; if you move further from central Oslo, you would have already seen thick layers of snow last week. The closer to the city centre you get, however, the less winter it seems, and the more autumn it looks.

So here is my last attempt at holding onto the autumn weather with this warm and red-toned makeup look. I recently received the Urban Decay NAKED HEAT palette as a gift from a friend and was so excited to experience a little more with it. I already tested it out when I did a makeup tutorial at @Gambitsky, which you can also check out here.

Let's get to it!

STEP 1: set the base

As my base makeup and brow "technique" hasn't changed since last time, I've decided not to include that in this tutorial.

Just remember to prime your face and eyelids, then just do your base as you usually do. Now, let's jump right into the eyes!


STEP 2: ounce & chaser

It's important to first have a layer of base for your eyeshadow, so to make it easier to blend out the colours that we'll be applying later. For this, I used a mix of ounce and chaserfrom the palette. Remember to go up all the way to your browbone.


STEP 3: low blow

Next, you should choose the main colour of the makeup. This is going to be the "theme colour" if you like. For me, I chose low blow, a soft coffee-brown with a hint of red. Apply this to the outer corner and mid of your eyelids, up to a little bit above your crease, or in my case, where my crease would have been.


STEP 4: en fuego & ashes

Now that you've got a base and the main colour, it's time to add some depth. First layer of depth; en fuego, a perfect brick red shade. I added this to the outer corner of my eyelids and blend! blend! blend! Second, to add a little bit more depth to it; ashes, a deep dark brick red colour. Carefully add this to the mid to outer part of your lashline, then go up in a C-shape, to add it to the depth of your crease. And again; blend blend blend!


STEP 5: lumbre & scorched

Lastly, add a little shimmer to the inner corners of your eyelids. For this, I used the colours lumbreand scorched.

STEP 6: finishing touches

Now that the eyeshadows are done, just finish off with your favourite mascara and eyeliner. I did a small wing so to keep the attention on the eyeshadow.

Top off with your favourite neutral lip colour, I'm using NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in soft-spoken.

And that's it! You're finished!
