Pantone Color of the Year 2015: Marsala

Pantone Color of the Year 2015: Marsala

Each year, we anticipate the release of Pantone’s Color of the Year for fashion and beauty inspiration. The Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala, a rich and earthy tone reminiscent of the wine it is named for. This sophisticated red-brown shade is both bold and wearable, and it’s sure to complement any skin tone.

At LovelySkin, we spent our morning swatching makeup to help you incorporate the new Marsala trend into your regular routine. Browse these products from our favorite brands to learn how to wear this hearty hue!

jane iredale Lip Fixation Lip Stain is a double-sided lip duo that smooths and nourishes lips with botanical ingredients. The color Craving includes our new favorite wine, plus a glossy, clear formula. The two may be worn separately or together for the ultimate shiny expression.

For a near perfect match for Marsala, choose bareMinerals Blush in thistle. This sheer mineral blush adds a touch of color to the cheeks that leaves skin looking fresh and vibrant. We love that the powder is composed of skin-healthy ingredients like titanium dioxide.

If you’d like to experiment with the Color of the Year in a more luminous way, we have a solution. OPI Nail Lacquer in Cozu-melted in the Sun is a lightened up version that doesn’t abandon the pink and brown undertones that have us hooked. The pearly, shimmery finish will add eye-catching allure to your manicure.

Cream blushes blend in smoothly to create a dewy, natural radiance. jane iredale In Touch Cream Blush in chemistry can be worn on the cheeks and lips to create a daring evening look. The easy-to-use stick is gluten-free and made from natural ingredients. And did we mention that it smells and tastes like chocolate? In Touch Cream Blush contains real cocoa extract!

Zoya Nail Polish in Mercedes is described as a “dark mauve with pink, brown and red tones.” Sounds about right to us! This beautiful polish has a frosty finish, making it perfect for a festive winter look.

Since we offered a lighter alternative, we had to include a shade on the darker end of the spectrum. And we chose glo minerals GloLiquid Lips in desire! This hue mimics Marsala, but with a kiss of raspberry, really playing up the pink notes that set the Color of the Year apart.

You don't have to stop at makeup. At LovelySkin, you can even find wine-inspired skin care. Resveratrol, a substance found in the skin of grapes, is a potent antioxidant that helps stimulate collagen growth and protect skin against signs of aging. SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E is an intensive nighttime treatment that helps to protect and repair skin with 1% pure resveratrol. Over time, you can experience smoother, firmer, more radiant skin.
