Marsala the official color of 2015

The color authority has spoken Marsala (RGB 18-1438) is the official Pantone color for 2015…And you know what that means- we are about to see a lot of this tone on clothes, accessories, nails and makeup. After naming the color of the millennium in 1999, the tone guru has naming a color of the year, every year, based on extensive research. They also work super close with beauty magnate Sephora to bring which ever tone gets chosen to your lips and lids.

Just what color is marsala? An earthy red with a wine and warm brown undertone, according to Pantone. Wanna jump on the trend, here’s some basics to get you inspired and excited (should you whose to make this brown wine part of your look.)
