Huda Warm Brown Obsessions Palette
Huda Warm Brown Obsessions is a brand of cosmetics and accessories manufactured by Huda Beauty. It was originally introduced to the United States in 2013, when Huda Cosmetics was acquired by Estée Lauder. The palette is currently available at Ulta, Sephora and Revolve Beauty.
The palette features a range of warm brown shades including taupe, gold, burnt orange, cocoa brown, rust and beige colors. It has been described as the perfect palette for warm brown eyeshadow lovers.
The matte version of the palette is called Huda’s “Obsessions” Matte Palette . The formula on this one uses buttery pigments to create a smooth matte finish with an easy application method .
My Huda Obsessions: The Huda Warm Brown Obsessions Palette
Huda’s Warm Brown Obsessions Palette is one of the most gorgeous holiday palettes on the market. It has more than enough shades to satisfy most needs, but we find it is one of the best and easiest ways to work on warm brown tones.
I only have one complaint: the palette doesn’t have a name.
The palette contains over 30 shades, divided into two sections (warm browns and warm tans) with accompanying names for each section, as well as some general category names for all shades in the palette (the “Brown Obsession” category). The first half of the palette contains six warm browns, while the second contains six warm tans.
I’m so disappointed that we don’t have a name for this powerful palette yet. And sad that it isn’t named at all yet. But we are working on a solution!
Why I Love This Palette and How It Has Changed My Life
I’ve been using this palette for a couple of years now and it has changed my life.
This palette is perfect for me because I am always trying to be as flattering as possible and it allows me to do that without looking like a permanent member of the E.R. My skin is combination: fair, with a hint of green/brown undertones that darken when I sweat or get into the sun. It’s also dry enough that I don’t need to use an oil-free base, and the huda warm browns are perfect for setting my foundations so they stay in place all day long.
It holds up well under makeup, too, which I often forget about when applying sunscreen or wearing loose foundation on top of powder. A lot of other palettes have creases through the middle where the color fades and doesn’t go on smoothly — this one doesn’t! It’s also super easy to blend out with a damp beauty blender (I use a spongy one from Target called “Faux Creme”). My favorite thing about this palette is how natural it looks on me without looking “too” much like makeup on me — I love that!
Finally, it’s affordable — at least in comparison to other palettes that cost $50+ each — and has been an absolute lifesaver when traveling around Asia or just being lazy at home (it gets dusty in our little apartment). And it has stayed true to its name: my favorite thing about this palette is how feminine it makes me look (which is something I was not able to do with other palettes). The only downside? It’s small — but if you’re serious about your makeup application you don’t even need more than two tubes at once!

Three Ways to Wear Huda’s Warm Brown Palette
I’m not sure why I picked this picture of Huda’s Warm Brown Obsessions Palette, but it is a good place to start.
It is quite likely that the most effective way to wear Huda’s Warm Brown palette is as a whole. It doesn’t matter whether you use it as a lipstick or a blush, as eyeshadow, or as a highlighter, or simply for another accent colour for your face: you can do it all with the same palette. You can also mix and match your shades; in fact, this combination was included in one of my first blog posts on the Huda website .
The second way is to use it just as an eye shadow palette; you can use any mix of shades in there: they will all work (as long as their intensity is roughly equal). The third way is to use it as a highlighter — of course!
All three ways are valid and useful. They are each great in their own way; using any one of them depends on what kind of look you want to achieve: if you want a more dramatic effect, try using the eye shadow technique; if you want something lighter and more subtle, try using the highlighter technique; and if you want something somewhere between those two extremes, then combine them both together. The only thing that makes these combinations different from one another is that they are all different colours: Huda’s Warm Brown Obsessions Palette is definitely not appropriate for yellow-toned skin tones or for dark hair: the eye shadow technique works best for people with dark skin tones (blonde hair), while the highlighter technique works best for people with light skin tones (auburn hair).
So where does all this leave us? Well… in my opinion, we should be much more careful about mixing our product shades than we have been recently. We used to think that mixing our product colours was OK when we weren’t using our products at all (or even when we were just dipping into them). We thought that people would like us better w/o any product colours at all because they would be happy with their eyeshadows alone — but now we know better: people don’t care how many products they have when they don’t need any extra help. So far I haven’t seen anyone posting on Huda’s Facebook page asking how many products they needed. In other words… where are these
I’m still not sure what to make of my huda warm brown obsessions palette (HWBOC), a palette dedicated to the warm browns of fall and winter. As I explained in the introduction, I was a bit obsessed with warm browns while visiting some of our favorite art museums around the world, and more specifically, in Greece. I can happily say that my obsession has paid off: this palette is now available on Etsy.
Many people would probably be shocked to know that I started painting like this while studying at Parsons The New School for Design (the school where this guy used to go). Like most students there, I was more into digital design than painting, but as soon as I got out of school and started working full-time as a designer, I took up painting like a hobby. My first brush with the world of oil paint came when my brother invited me to accompany him on a trip to Spain for an upcoming wedding; he had been wanting me to paint for quite some time after seeing my paintings in his studio.
I always thought oil paint was too expensive for me; it was only when we moved from NYC back to San Francisco that my brother convinced me to give it another try. It was quite a shock: suddenly $50 per bottle didn’t seem so bad after all! So I spent about 3 months learning how oil paints work and began experimenting with different techniques: various types of layering and various pigments. After several failed experiments (including changing my palette over & over again) I stuck with one technique which seemed easier: mixing acrylics with oil paints.
The first time I tried using acrylics instead of oils, it went well enough that when we returned home, I decided to continue experimenting by myself (and eventually bought supplies from an artist friend). My experience during those 3 months was twofold:
1) Using acrylics instead of oils made me more confident in my own skills
2) It also taught me how painters use their brushes (which is entirely different from how people use brushes in paint). Needless to say, there were days when it felt like you couldn’t see your face anywhere — but you could see your hands!
So here we are — finally at the end of summer here in San Francisco — and here’s the big question: have you heard about our new Huda Warm Brown Obsessions Palette? We’re proud enough of our success that we
