While her causal, California-girl roots mean her model-off-duty approach to beauty is strong, Gigi Hadid can turn up the make-up when duty calls and has a knack for adding an effortless IT-girl edge to her street style beauty efforts. Seen on the streets of Manhattan with boyfriend Zayn Malik, Hadid tries her hand at the matchy matchy make-up equation, and wins.

In a move that’s part Betty Draper, part OG-Madonna, with dash of Sandy Olsson attitude thrown in, Hadid paired her retro Le Specs ‘The Last Lolita’ sunnies (the black isn’t in-stores until August, but the red is available now) a perfect fire engine red pout with long, oval nails in the exact same shade.


While there will always be an argument for contrasting colours, on-trend finishes and  new nail art combinations, there is also something feminine and polished about the retro matching nail and lip combination and it’s ability to elevate a simple white T-shirt and blue jeans outfit is undeniable. With everything that Gigi Hadid touching turning to trending, here are five matching lip and nail combinations to paint on for size.
