It’s described on the Pantone website as an elegant and rich hue, with a sophisticated natural earthiness. I know it’s just a colour but I really do believe all those sentiments. Looking at the photo story on the Pantone website it shows Marsala in so many ways, including clothing, food, and kitchen decor. I see the warmth and elegance in the photos and I am definitely convinced that this was the right pick for Color of The year for 2015.

I have never before been so excited about a Pantone pick. In previous years I like the colours but couldn’t see myself wearing or using them in any way, but with Marsala I am already digging through my lipstick drawer to find my best Marsala matches!

I’m definitely excited about the Color of The Year for 2015, but how do you feel? Are you a fan of this new hue? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Saturday Decisions: Smoky Eyes or a Bold Lip?

Whenever I get ready for a night out I always have a tough decision to make…what makeup will I wear?

I’m a believer of accenting one feature at a time, so I always have to pick between a bold lip colour or some intense eye makeup. Sometimes I can pull off both if it’s for a big event or something, but on the average Saturday night I like to pick just one thing to emphasize.

I wanted to ask you beauties what you think of this dilemma. Do you go for a smoky eye on a Saturday night or do you prefer to focus on a bold lip?

I really want to hear your opinions so please leave a comment with your thoughts!

Best Beauty: Golden Globes 2014

Red carpets are always full of the latest and greatest in fashion and beauty, so it’s no wonder that I get really inspired after watching award shows. Last night the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet had a ton of beautiful looks that I really liked. Here are a few of my favourite beauty looks from last night.

Jennifer Lawrence at the 2014 Golden Globes

Jennifer Lawrence. Her pretty pixie cute and that lipstick colour look phenomenal on her. Very mature and chic, definitely a great look on her.

Kerry Washington at the 2014 Golden Globes

Kerry Washington. The nude lips with the soft smoky eye look really good on her and they totally inspire me to start wearing lighter lip colours.

Reese Witherspoon at the 2014 Golden Globes

Reese Witherspoon. The eye shadow she is wearing is so perfect and the overall makeup look is something I’d reach for every day. This look is simple but really pretty on her.

Lena Dunham at the 2014 Golden Globes

Lena Dunham. This girl sported a bright orange lipstick and some killer black eyeliner. I love how bold this look is and it makes me want to pick up a liquid liner right now.

Kaley Cuoco at the 2014 Golden Globes

Kaley Cuoco. This newlywed wore a really cool eye shadow look with the green shadow on the lid and teal liner on the bottom lashline. I like how different it is and would definitely consider trying something like that myself.

Did anyone else notice there was a whole lot of nude lips on this red carpet? I think the bold lipstick trends might be taking a break right now and I am totally okay with that. These celebs showed off some really stunning looks that didn’t include the typical red carpet red lipstick and I think that’s really refreshing.

Do you agree with these picks or is there somebody I missed? Leave a comment and share your best beauty looks from the 2014 Golden Globes!

What is in Your Winter Beauty Bag?

Does the cold weather change your beauty routine? I know it makes me reach for the moisturizer and lip balm a lot more often. I tend to go through many tubes of clear balm and ChapStick during these months. I also use hand cream every few hours to make sure my hands stay soft and hydrated with the wind.

One thing I wear less of is lipstick since the wind always blows my hair right into my mouth. I’ve ended up with some pretty crazy streaks of red lipstick across my cheeks.. does anyone else know what I’m talking about?

Is there anything you use more or less of when the weather gets cold?
