4 ways to use 2015’s colour of the year in your beauty routine


American colour company Pantone have announced Marsala to be 2015’s colour of the year. Pantone describe the deep burgundy colour as: “an earthy red wine that embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated earthiness.”

Needless to say, we are completely obsessed with this beautiful, rich colour and wanted to think of lots of ways to use it in our beauty and make-up routine.

It’s time to shake off the black and bring in Marsala for an easy and sophisticated update to your look.

Marsala is such an incredibly beautiful colour to use on your nails and easy to find too. Just look for what you would consider to be 'burgundy' or a red-based wine colour and you're there!

If you're feeling like you want to change up your hair colour, then Marsala is the perfect colour to choose. Sophisticated and trendy, this look will see you right through to summer. 

It may seem like a daunting prospect to put a red colour on your eyelids, but this can actually work out beautifully. Use with gold to really make your eye make-up pop. 

Dark lips are seriously on trend right now, and with some searching, you can find the perfect shade for your skin tone.
