Friday makeup look #4 Marsala - Colour of the Year 2015


Hello!
If you're a makeup enthusiast and watch beauty videos you should have known by now that the colour of the year 2015 according to Pantone Colour Institute is Marsala, described as "a naturally robust and earthy wine red". I've seen already some makeup tutorials focused on this colour and decided to do my own version of it. The colour itself, red-ish brown/burgundy, is beautiful and I've been loving it for a long time. But then when it came to choosing the right shades for my eyes, cheeks, lips I didn't get that many options. Some of the shades I was thinking of, were either too brown or too berry looking, but after searching my makeup collection I settled on the products that I think represent the Marsala shade the best.
For my eyes I've chosen the beautiful red wine/burgundy shade from my Stila 'Spirit' palette (review). I applied it on top of a deep, warm brown pencil to make it look more earthy. Here are the swatches of the eye shadows I used for the eye look.
 
And that's how I used them.
1 - after priming my eyes I blended shade Puppy all over my crease as a transitional shade.
2 - I applied warm brown pencil by Jelly Ping Pong to inner and outer third of my lid and blended it lightly, next I applied Pigalle on top of the pencil.
3 - with a small tapered blending brush I applied Pigalle in the crease.
4 - using flat shading brush I applied Wheat in the centre of the lid blending the edges lightly so there were no harsh line between colours.
5 - I lined my lower lash line with the brown pencil making a straight line under my inner corner for a bit edgier look, I used for this an angled thin brush.
6 - I smoked lightly the line with Pigalle eye shadow.
7 - I lined my waterline with nude pencil and my upper lashes with black one, both from Rimmel.
8, 9 - I applied a coat of Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced and added false lashes.
 
For my base I used:
Primer - The Body Shop Tea Tree primer.
Foundation - Seventeen Stay Time in the shade Natural.
Concealers - Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin in 02Light to hide the under eye dark circles and L'Oreal Lumi Magique in Light for highlighting.
Powder - to set my concealer and foundation I used the trustworthy L'Oreal BB powder in Light
For my blush I used the second shade from the bottom row of blushes from the Golden Sugar palette (review). I think this colour has some Marsala tones and it looks perfect lightly dusted on top of a bronzer, which was my usual Rimmel Sun Bronze.
 
I used two lipsticks to create my perfect Marsala shade, first I applied Japonesque lipstick in #07 which is a deep red-ish brown and on top I added a thin layer of Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in #220 Heather Shimmer.
 
And that's the finished look :)
 


 
What do you think of the Marsala colour? Do you like it? Is it a shade you would use in your makeup? I would love to hear your opinion.
