Marsala Makeup: Color of the Year 2015

We posted a “Marsala” style post last week, incorporating the Pantone Color of the Year 2015 into a look, and I thought it fitting to do a beauty post, as well! In case you missed it, here is the new It Girl shade:

Here’s a little color pairing guide, just for fun :) It’s by no means exhaustive! In the fall, this shade will work beautifully with dark, chocolate browns (think leather), and lovely, warm, plum hues (think texture), but for now, the color pairings below are just some to get ya started….

Marsala is friends with light, warm, earthy shades, but it also easily pairs, and is quite striking, with cooler tones, as well.

Manic for Marsala, yet? It’s such a lovely color! And is an especially gorgeous, striking accent hue, easily incorporated in makeup + nails. We hope this post gets you inspired!
