Marsala Is The Colour For 2015 | Clozette

(cover photo from musicalhouses)

Marsala is the colour of the year and has been described by Pantone as a robust and earthy wine red. At first glance, it can be easily be confused with Burgundy, a deep wine red that has been the go-to colour in Fall/Winter 2014. But in a nut-shell, we'd consider Marsala as Burgundy's lighter-hued sibling with a touch of earthy-brown tones throughout. 

So since the year has barely begun, we thought it'll be the best time to scout for Marsala-coloured items to update your fashion and beauty stash. Here's our list of 5 Marasala-hued items to get your hands on ASAP.


NARS Lipstick in Tolede

NARS lipsticks give off a creamy, sheer finish to create natural, stained-looking lips. This semi-matte formula in the shade Tolede is a muted way to incorporate a touch of Marsala into your everyday makeup look.

Forever 21 Matelasse Peplum Top

We love peplum tops and this Forever 21 top in a chic matalasse knit is definitely a must-have item to grab this month. It's a slightly-lighter Burgundy shade--which is pretty close to Marsala in our book. Dress this up with a pencil skirt or pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans.

Ever since Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Blushes hit the market, we've all been blushing a whole new way. This blush in Mood Exposure lets you glow in Marsala, with its soft-ambient light effect and multidimensional colour.

Get your nails in on the Marsala colour action with this Essie nailpolish in Mauves. Its chip-resistant formula will keep your fancy Marsala-themed nail art lasting all week long.

Modalu Phoebe Saffiano Tote Bag

One of the quickest way to add a touch of Marsala to your outfit is with a tote bag that easily matches a number of looks. We're loving this structured bag from Modalu, perfect for pairing with a sweet, flirty dress or with a structured jacket.



Now that the new year has begun and the holidays are long over, we thought that the best way to kick ourselves back into gear is to recharge our fashion and beauty loving-selves with a marathon of fashion and beauty videos.

So here's our list of 5 must-watch videos this week, covering everything from skincare, makeup, and ootds!

If you're a fan of the neutral eye makeup look, then you're going to love this quick tutorial from KathleenLights. And since a neutral smoky-eye goes well with soft, wavy hair reminiscent of the long, flowy hair of Victoria's Secret angels, then the added hair tutorial will be quite a treat!



One thing I always look forward to in a new year is the slew of resolutions shared by friends online. It's always interesting to see what others have decided to resolve at the start of every year--regardless of whether or not they actually accomplish said goals.

While I rarely make my own list of resolutions to stick to, I decided to do something different this year and attempt to put together an achievable list of beauty resolutions I plan to stick to in 2015. After all, a whole new year equals a whole new number to add to my age. So there is no better time than now to resolve to stick to a year-long beauty resolution!

So for our first instalment of our Editor's Corner series, I present to you my five beauty resolutions for 2015! If anything else, putting this out there may make me feel more accountable and successfully persist in this endeavour.

1. Drink More Water

Here's one thing I am terrible at: keeping myself hydrated through the day. I usually start the day with a glass of water to go along with my mug of coffee. It's a pretty good start; but then I forget to keep drinking water the rest of the day. This is not a good habit and it's something I hope to correct in the new year by keeping a a big'ol water bottle on my desk as a reminder to keep hydrated no matter how busy I may be. Hydration = Good Skin.

2. Weekly Face Masks

I really don't know why I don't do this more often. Face masks are amazing and really should be done as much as possible. Not only does my skin love a good face mask session, but it also allows me to take time off from my day to just relax. So a weekly face mask session shall now be added to my beauty regimen--as opposed to my previous I'll-slap-on-a-face-mask-when-I-remember habit.

3. Try More Skincare Products

I am a creature of habit. Once I find a product that works well for my skin, I tend to plateau and keep using the same product over and over again. While I do love reading and researching about the latest beauty products to hit the market, it takes quite a while before I incorporate such products into my daily beauty regimen. So how will I find my next holy-grail product if I'm stuck using my same-'ol holy-grail products? Side note: my current holy-grail products are slowly fading away from their holy-grail status since my skin has gotten used to them, so this is really the best time to get out there and try new things!

4. Be Better At Hair Care

My haircare motto up until now has always been: if you're having a bad hair day, just braid your hair and forget about it. It's my quick and easy way to tame my unruly, frizzy waves. But the only reason my waves are always unruly and frizzy is because I don't take care of my hair enough. So this year, I am going to incorporate more haircare products in my routine and be better at actually making them a part of my daily routine. 

5. Keep My Beauty Stash Clean

Okay. My beauty stash is generally clean through the year, but there are just some days when I do find myself not in the mood to wash my makeup brushes as scheduled (brushes should be washed as least once a week, ladies!). Dirty brushes = germs and bacteria; and wiping them with makeup wipes after every use just isn't enough. So I aim to be better at sticking to a regular brush-cleaning schedule.
