MARSALA & Beauty: How PANTONE’s 2015 Color of the Year Can Be Your Color Too
Published on September 30, 2015
PANTONE has recently released their Color of the Year for 2015, and the winner is… MARSALA
Marsala (Pantone 18-1438) is a deep red hue that is reminiscent of the wine that inspired its name. The experts at PANTONE deem this color as a “natural fit for the kitchen and dining room,” and beauty writers at Allure Magazine call the hue “universally flattering.”
If you don’t know the history of the PANTONE Color of the Year, here’s a brief run down. PANTONE began choosing a color of the year in 2000, and has chosen a new color sequentially each year since. PANTONE’s color of that year then serves as inspiration for a number of color trends and industries: interior design, makeup and beauty, graphic design, fashion, and much more.
Here are a few beauty products in Marsala shades that are flawless for fall, and flattering for all:
Essie – “A-List”
A perfect Marsala-esque nail polish from the pros at Essie. Can they do no wrong?
Sephora – Rouge Cream Lipstick in “Charmer 19”
