As we all know, Pantone proclaimed that Marsala was the color of the year 2015 few weeks back. I don't know about you guys but for me, I found this color very stunning. The deep-reddish brown color looks great on a variety of skin color and translates well into a wide range of wearable makeup products for the eyes, cheeks, lips and nails. Anyway, to get you guys started off on the right page of the Pantone book this new year I've decided to dedicate this whole first week of January to some of the best Marsala colored makeup. From lipsticks to lip liners, blush and even nail polish — I've got you covered.
"The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.
This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors." — Pantone
