If you don’t already know, Pantone’s 2015 colour of the year is Marsala (yes, named after the fortified wine), and we love it.

Pantone Colour of the Year 19 ways to wear the makeup colour of 2015.png

Compared to colours from the past three years – Radiant Orchid, Emerald and Tangerine Tango – this shade is so much easier to wear, especially on warm skin tones. Swipe it under the cheekbones for a subtle contour, over the lips for a beautiful red-brown tint, or over the eyes as a single-coloured smoky eye at night.

Pantone recommends you pair Marsala with peachy pinks, antiqued gold metallics or overlay bronze for a dramatic look.
