2015 Color of the Year Make-up: Marsala Lips

I think it's really neat, that every year there is a designated "Color of the Year"! I have decided that I will do a monthly post with the color of the year - make-up, nails, etc! You can view my past Color of the Year post's here.

2015's Color of the Year is Marsala - and is described as a wine red with brown roots! 

It is not a color I normally wear, so it will take me a bit out of my comfort zone to try it! 

This month I thought I would demonstrate a Marsala lip using only a lip pencil!

My first rule of doing any dark lip is to first use a lip scrup - make sure your lips are nice and smooth!

Here is the lipliner I used:


NYX Slim Lip Pencil in "Burgundy" ~ $3.50. This was very easy to apply and went on very smooth! I simply lined my lips and lightly filled in the rest - top off with a light chap stick and wa-laa - Marsala lips! 




Sephora describes the color Marsala as a "bold pop of neutral" which is exactly what this lip color felt like! Not too dark, but great for any date night out! 

Have you been wearing the Color of the Year? Next month, I will have some Marsala eye looks for you!
