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:
