It's time to get matchy-matchy with your make-up, ladies! There was a time when wearing matching lipstick and nail colour was seriously passe. However, recently, red carpets and runways rocked lips and tips sporting the same colour, for a sophisticated, coordinated look. I think that, just like Will and me, lips and nails were made for each other. Awww.

There's a love affair going on, em, right under your nose – between lipstick, nail polish and blush right now. I'm really glad this is a 'thing' right now. I love a retro red on my lips and tips. In my photo, above, I'm sporting a crimson polish, Lacquered Up, from essie, €10, and my lippie is Revlon Rouge Edition Velvet in 13 Rouge Jet Set, €12. Actually, it was Revlon who, in the early 1950s, started the matching trend with their Fire and Ice Collection. The iconic ad featured one of the first supermodels, Dorian Leigh.

If you like an on-trend hot-pink colour for summer, check out the NARS take on matching lips and tips with their Schiap lippie, above right, €25, a flattering hot pink, and matching polish, above left, €18.

If you want to go all out, you can match your favourite benefit blusher with a corresponding lip gloss that complements your cheek colour perfectly. I love the Coralista blusher, right, €34, as it's such a kind colour on my skin, along with Coralista Ultra Plush Lip Gloss, left, €21.
