Match your lips with your nails like a functional adult female.

When it comes to beauty, I'm a die hard lip-girl and nail-girl. So I'm not sure why I didn't think to match the two sooner. It's a very traditional beauty look, back when the only shades of anything were red and pink. Although traditional and nostalgic it's also refreshing and pulled together. Perfect for presenting yourself as a pseudo balanced and stable adult woman. MAC Cosmetics are bringing this look back with their new Fashion Sets range of matching lipsticks, glosses and nailpolishes with tailored colour ranges for each part of the world. New Zealand gets the Asia Pacific range which hits counters Monday morning and featuring classics like Saint Germain and Impassioned. I was lucky enough to go to make yesterday evening to have my makeup done by the lovely James Molloy (Mac's Director of Makeup Artistry for Asia/Pacific) and try out this matchy-matchy thing. Naturally I chose Morange.

  3. This looks great! I think I have been doing this subconsciously for years but red does get a bit samey... I love the Saint Germain pair!
