Marsala Inspired

Pantone Universe declared the Color of the Year to be….Marsala (“a natural, robust and earthy wine red”). It is also supposed to be universally flattering on any skin tone. I’m actually really liking this color which can easily be worn as a nail polish, lipstick, eyes, and even be incorporated in your fashion and decor.

Here’s my interpretation of Marsala in a makeup look.

▫️For this look I tried to get as close to marsala as I could with what I had. Seeing all the great looks that people have done with Limecrime’s Venus palette has made me want one too!
On my eyes I used a rusty red color from Sleek makeup Ultra Mattes V2 palette which came pretty close to the color, and on my lips Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick in ‘In the Flesh’. I was really happy with the results as I think it is super flattering for my brown eyes and hair, but I think it would also look really well on everyone because it is such a universally flattering color.
Full face:

I hope this inspired you to get creative with Marsala! Thanks for reading!
