My 'Marsala' Beauty Picks - Pantone Color of the Year 2015

My 'Marsala' Beauty Picks - Pantone Color of the Year 2015

News would have reached most of you that Sephora announced Marsala as the Pantone Color of the Year 2015; inspired by the shade of the Marsala wine. The colour has been described from muted scarlet to terracotta red to a rich reddish-brown with purple hues. Yes, the colour is kinda complex. And to be honest, I am not overjoyed with this particular shade. But I am sure with time it will grow on to me. 

This shade is something I would prefer more in fashion than in beauty, nonetheless I picked up 5 makeup products that best fit the new Marsala trend. Marsala..! I don't even like the the ring of it. I only found out today that there is an Italian American dish called Chicken Marsala...eek!

Catching Fire - Nail Art Tutorial

Catching Fire - Nail Art Tutorial

Not so long ago we all went gaga over one of the perfect movies ever made - Catching Fire. With 4 days left to the release of the next part of this movie series, Mocking Jay Part I, I wanted to do a nail art tutorial in reminder of the last part. After all, Catching Fire was love! From Katniss' Braid to Effie Trinket's makeup for not a moment I can ever take my eyes off the screen when watching these series. 
I chose to create an accent fire nail and complimented the rest of the look with black and gold. If you want you can create the same fire image on all your nails.
