Marsala Makeup & How You Can Wear the Trend
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 - marsala - is a shade that translates effortlessly to the beauty world. Makeup in this earthy wine shade is feminine but not too girly nor too vampy. It's just right. As you can see in the pic above, it's light enough for fair skin, though it's still a shade that is rich enough for olive and darker skin tones. *Image via Anthropologie.
This is definitely a shade for all-day wear. It's sexy enough for date-night makeup, but it's still perfectly wearable for the office.
The best part is it comes in varying shades of wine, so you can get in on the trend with any kind of wine or burgundy-colored makeup. Just a few makeup brands like Sephora have already included "marsala" makeup in their 2015 collections, but you can find the shade in your favorite beauty brands by looking for something in a burgundy or an earthy wine shade.
Colors that Go Well with Marsala Makeup
- Try it on the eyes with a heavily-pigmented mineral shadow in burgundy, sweeping it on over the lid and slightly below the brow bone.
- Whether you go with eyeshadow or marsala lipstick, keep the rest of your makeup more subtle and neutral for a daytime look. Marsala pairs well with a dusty rose shade or browns.
- Experiment pairing marsala with different shades of pink, red, or purple; but avoid shades with orange undertones. Think rosey pink, burgundy wine, crimson, mauve, or plum.
- Want to keep the rest of the look neutral? Marsala looks great with nude, browns, and light pinks.
- You can incorporate bold purple or red makeup with marsala if you go with a more brownish-colored marsala and apply it lightly.
- Monochrome makeup is also trending in the beauty world this year. Pull off a monochromatic marsala beauty look by lightly applying marsala eyeshadow to the lids, and pair it with a darker red wine-colored lip.
The Best Marsala Makeup to Match Your Hair Color
Redheads - Play up the brown undertones by pairing marsala makeup with a neutral bronzer, or showcase a classic bright red by choosing a more neutral brownish marsala.
Blondes - Go with a lighter shade of marsala and pair it with a light dusty rose, or go darker with a burgundy red lip.
Brunettes - You can really play up the earthy brown in marsala or bring out the cool-toned red by pairing it with purple shades like plum or mauve. This marsala makeup tutorial is a perfect way for brunettes to wear the trend for a night out.
Black Hair - You get to go as dark as you want with this sultry shade. Go for a bold wine-colored lip! Keep your eyeshadow and blush more neutral but offset the marsala lips with a bold black cat-eye eyeliner. If you'd rather go with neutral lips and marsala on the eyes, here is a beautiful tutorial on marsala eyeshadow for women of color with additional tips on which colors to pair it with.
*Dark Hair with Dark or Olive Skin Tone: You can take this look into evening with a sparkley marsala smokey eye! Here is a great tutorial for that.
