Marsala Grunge eyes makeup tutorial

Marsala thumbnail

Marsala was declared the “Color of the Year 2015” and since I have already been loving this beautiful brown, off-red color on the runway I decided to do a makeup tutorial.marsala-pantone

Since I didn’t have a particular product that has the specific color, I combined a few different eyeshadows to achieve the Marsala hue.

I put browns, metallic reds, dirty pinks, and a beautiful brick red colour into play and this is what I came up with.

I used a frosty gold eyeshadow to highlight my browbone,  a beautiful bronzer as blush with shimmery pink and brown tones and harsh contouring.

For this look I would normally go for a bold red lip, but I chose a nude grey/beige matte lipstick, which I think is a great fit for the Marsala eyes!
