Beauty Guides: All About Marsala Makeup...!!!

15:36:00

Hey beauties,

Hope you are doing great. Pantone has selected MARSALA as the color of this year, 2015. Marsala is a gorgeous bold and deep shade. It is a lovely reddish brown shade or should I say a muted wine shade with some touch of brown in it. This shade will compliment many skin tones. I personally love this shade a lot and think its perfect for Asian skin tones. Therefore today's post is dedicated to the color of the year i.e. Marsala. The credit of this post goes to the sweetest ever Umaima of Dudettes Talk as she basically came up with this idea to do a collaborative post on "Marsala Makeup & Fashion Guide". Therefore am sharing with you this Marsala Makeup Guide today. I hope this post will help you in buying the right Marsala makeup products this year (both from drugstore & high end brands).

Marsala Makeup Guide
I have decided to keep the list short and precised. Therefore, I will be sharing with you only 2 high end and 2 drugstore Marsala products from each category. So let's get started...
Marsala For Eyes
Marsala For Eyes:
Marsala is such a lovely shade that would so compliment brown, hazel and green eyes. My high end picks of Marsala eyeshadows include Sephora Facets of Marsala Multi Finish Eye Palette ($39). This was a limited edition palette that went out of stock at Sephora so quickly but is still available at Ebay and few other websites. My second high end Marsala eyeshadow recommendation is Make Up Forever Artist Shadow in shade Morello Cherry ($21). My drugstore Marsala picks for eyes are Maybelline Color Tattoo in shade Metallic Pomegranate (£4.99) and NYX Jumboo Eye Pencil in Rust ($4.50).

Marsala For Lips
Marsala For Lips: 
This is my favorite section of all. There are so many lovely Marsala lipsticks that I have on my wish list for this year. Am sharing just a few with you. My Marsala high end lipsticks recommendations are Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Rum Raisin ($26) and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in Rose Infinite ($35).  MAC "Sin" is also a beautiful deep Marsala lip color. Its actually quite darker than the actual Marsala shade. If you are a budget buyer then the best drugstore options are ELF Moisturizing Lipstick in Ravishing Rose ($3) and Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry ($7.19). Another great drugstore Marsala lipstick is Essence long lasting lipstick in "On The Cat Walk". And there are plenty of lovely Marsala lip colors to share with you but to keep it short I have listed just few of my favorite shades here.
Marsala For Cheeks
Marsala For Cheeks:
Again for high end brands Sephora takes the lead here. Sephora's Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio ($28) has to be on the top. It is such a gorgeous palette with three beautiful shades. It was again a limited edition palette which is not available at Sephora now but u can still find it at Ebay for almost ($50). My second high end recommendation is Nars Blush in shade Outlaw ($30). As for budget buyers, the best Marsala blushers are ELF Studio Blush Palette in shade Dark ($6) and Sleek Blush in shade Flushed ($6.99). I love these two shades and have these on my wishlist especially the sleek blusher, it is so gorgeous.
Marsala For Nails
Marsala For Nails: 
Now time to paint your nails Marsala. The high end suggestions in this section are Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color 18 Rouge Noir (£18) and Tom Ford Nail Lacquer Bordeaux Lust ($32). Drugstore lovers should check out Essie Nail Color in shade Thigh High ($8.50) and INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Color #625 (Rs 1250/- almost $13).


That's all for my Marsala makeup guide. I hope you find this post helpful. But wait...the post hasn't ended yet. To spice up your wardrobe with Marsala, read Umaima's Marsala fashion and dressing guide on her blog here.
