Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 was Marsala, a deep burgundy which showed up everywhere from house wares, to clothing, and of course make up. Here is my Marsala inspired make up look featuring the below category 2 products.


Eyes: I used the BH Cosmetics Special Occasions Eye shadow and Blush Palette. It is an amazing palette which features beautiful colors that are pigmented and extremely rich. A light dip of the brush goes a long way. It’s a perfect palette to take with you when travelling. Not only does it have both eye shadows and blushes, but the variety provides you with enough looks for any occasion (hence the name “Special Occasion”).

Lips: The lipstick is my personal favorite, Maybelline ColorSensational Lip color in Rum Riche. It is a beautiful deep slightly lighter wine color which wears comfortably all day and surprisingly, doesn’t transfer onto the teeth (don’t you hate when that happens?!). It also keeps your lips feeling hydrated, though you may need to reapply throughout the day.
