Hot on the heels of Radiant Orchid (Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year) is Pantone’s pick for 2015, Marsala! It’s an earthy, wine red making it the perfect go-to for lips. Here are makeup tips and picks to stay on trend and get it right.








  1. Always exfoliate and moisturize lips before applying so lipstick goes on smoother and lasts longer. The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ ($24) combines sugar crystals, jojoba and grape seed oils to get the job done in the most delicious way possible. Available in a variety of flavors including Clementine, Brown Sugar, Vanilla Bean, Creme Brûlée, and more.
  2. Use a lip brush for expert control over application and intensity.
  3. Blot after applying lipstick to prevent bleeding outside lip lines.
  4. Contrast is key. If you have an olive or medium-toned complexion stick to the more red-based (rather than brown-based) shades so you don’t look washed-out.
  5. For those with a small mouth, sheer glosses and colored balms will better play up and enhance what you’ve got.
  6. Keep it simple. Bold lips look best paired with a well-groomed brow, minimal blush, neutral eye shadow, clean liner, and lots of mascara. Period.
  7. When wearing dark (or bright) lips always do a double-take. You’ll avoid the dreaded “lipstick on the teeth” with this model trick: After applying, put your clean finger inside your mouth, close your mouth around it and slide your finger out. This will remove any color that has gotten on the inner part of your lips and prevent it from getting on your teeth.



Paul & Joe Lip Liner Duo in Grapevine ($25) is a double-ended, velvety-textured lip pencil that glides on smoothly to line, define, and color lips. Use the shades separately or together to fill in entire lip. Top with a sheer gloss or balm for a long-wear stain that stays put.

Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Caractere ($35) gives you a gorgeously rich in pigment and creamy in application. It moisturizes, soothes and conditions lips on contact.

Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Rosewood ($27) lasts up to 8 hours without bleeding or feathering. It also contains pure olive oil and vitamin E to keep lips their healthiest.

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Metalrose ($25) is on the rosier spectrum of the shade and a less edgy, softer way to pull off the Color of the Year. One coat of this liquid lipstick gives you intense color and a smooth, lustrous finish.




CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Ravish Raspberry ($6.99) is pigment rich, full of hydrating shea, avocado and aloe butters and even formulated with white tea and vitamin E anti-aging antioxidant protection.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Manic ($22) is highly pigmented, hydrating and long-wear, plus its gunmetal case keeps you looking cool when applying.

Pantone announced the color of the year — Marsala — to mixed reviews. A far cry from last year’s happy easter eggy, springtime-like Radiant Orchid, Marsala is a muted, earthy toned shade that resembles mulled wine. Also unlike some of Pantone’s previous choices, such as Emerald Green and Tangerine Tango, Marsala is very wearable and uber flattering.

Check out our 6 Marsala-inspired beauty picks.









Dior Dior Addict Gloss in Sparkling Mauve ($29.50) fits the bill for a Marsala-shaded lip enhancer. Adds shine and a touch of plumping to boot.


Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Shimmer Ink ($24)  is a definite Marsala contender for the eyes. It is a reddish brown shade that looks great with brown or green eyes. Best to apply with Bobbi’s signature Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush ($27) for a perfect application every time.


Dolce & Gabbana The Nail Lacquer in Lilac Mauve ($25.00) is a finger lengthening neutral shade that has universal appeal for fingers and toes.
