Rosy Accent

I've taken to doing my makeup in the bathroom while my beauty room is being organised, and have found the natural light in there to be really lovely at certain times of the day. As I went past the foundation and concealer stage I perused my blush options in my daily tray, and picked up Chanel Accent from the recent limited edition collection. I wanted a nude lip to go with my heavier-than-usual daytime eye look and picked up Rosy Future* from the newly re-released Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss range, and wouldn't you know it, they are two peas in a pod!
I'm quite partial to a brown toned nude lip, I think that often people have a few that they will look like an 80's dance music model, but in reality brown tones are often really flattering in nude shades! For me personally, I think it gives a bit of an edge to a nude lip that makes me look a bit older and perhaps more professional, which is handy considering I'm often mistaken for a student while teaching at high schools!
I am still playing around with Chanel Accent and have not made my mind up about it - most of the time I wear it over the top of Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed to give a bit of dimension and shimmer to my cheeks, but then I get this strange feeling that I'm betraying the blush code by using Chanel as a topper rather than a main player. Does this happen to anyone else, or am I just that blush mad?
Couldn't resist throwing in this shot of my little helper Charlie, who sits at my feet or on the bath mat to watch me swirl my powders and smear my lotions on. He can't seem to work out mirrors just yet, and so seeing his eyes flick from me to my reflection is the cutest thing!

What do you think about matching makeup? Love it, or hate it?

  1. Those two shades work great together. :) I match my lips to my blush sometimes, it just brings it all together. LOVE the pictures of Charlie, SO cute! Haha, I like how he/she is blurred out in the first photo. x

    1. I was so happy when I realised how close the shades are. I agree that it can bring a look together, I often use this trick with pink and peach too!

  3. Gorgeous! I like matching makeup if it's not too over the top. This is very nice and subtle :)
