Marsala is the color of the year for 2015 according to Pantone and I have created a fun look using some beautiful products from the Aveda Romantic Grandeur collection. You can see in the video that I opened all of them up for the first time and I had no idea what I was getting into, so it was literally a first impressions kind of thing. That being said, I tried to really draw inspiration from the photo included with the products.
I will first start with the eye products.
Aveda Mosscara in Earth is a brown mascara. It does a good job at coating the lashes but it is a more natural mascara.
petal essence™ single eye color in Allspice is a reddish brown sheen.
petal essence™ single eye color in Ivory Lotus is a warm ivory sheen.
petal essence™ single eye color in Golden Cypress is a pure golden sheen. I would argue that this one has a hint of green/mossiness.
And the lip products… Let me just say, they are EVERYTHING.
nourish-mint™ lip liner in Fire Maple is a cool, vibrant red.
nourish-mint™ smoothing lip color in Gogi Berry is a vibrant, true red.
nourish-mint™ rehydrating lip glaze in Mangosteen is a deep red-violet. It is probably my single most favorite item out of all of the things included.
I had a few people ask me today what I thought about the products and I have to say that I think that every single thing is great. The mascara is my least favorite, but I honestly think it is because I prefer a super dark black mascara and I always have. Probably always will.
Marsala is such a big deal and I think that this look really plays with the red brown tones and does it well. The eye and the lip aren’t something I would normally put together, but the look I was emanating was one that was more “editorial” so I felt like it was fun to play. After it was all said and done I actually ended up enjoying the look. I just kept everything else about my face toned down.
