Populating Account address in contact

My Requirement was during upon selected an account on contact while creating new contact or update contact.... Account address to be populated on contact automatically. During insert the trigger is working properly but an update it is not working. Please suggest me what i need to change in below code.

trigger PopulateAccountAddress on Contact (before insert,before update)
  Map<id,Account> accaddress = new Map<id,Account>();
  List<Account> acclist = [Select id,BillingCity,BillingCountry,BillingPostalCode,BillingState,BillingStreet from Account];
  for(Account addaddress : acclist)
  System.debug ('*****accaddress Map*****' + accaddress);
  for(Id conaddress:accaddress.keyset())
      System.debug('Address ids' + conaddress);
         Contact c = new Contact();
        System.debug('!!!!!conaddress!!!!!!' + conaddress);
        c.MailingCity = accaddress.get(conaddress).BillingCity;
        System.debug('$$$$ MailingCity $$$$$' + c.MailingCity);
        c.MailingCountry = accaddress.get(conaddress).BillingCountry;
        c.MailingPostalCode= accaddress.get(conaddress).BillingPostalCode;
        c.MailingState = accaddress.get(conaddress).BillingState;
        c.MailingStreet= accaddress.get(conaddress).BillingStreet;
Your requirement for update should be from account to contact or contact to account or else both object.. Which one?

try something like this trigger PopulateAccountAddress on Contact (before insert,before update)
set<id>contactidset=new set<id>();
for(contact c : trigger.new){
list<contact>newcon=[select id,Accountid,name from contact where id IN:contactidset];
List<Account>relatedacc=new list<account>();

for(integer i=0;i<newcon.size();i++){
relatedacc=[select id,ShippingStreet from account where id=:newcon[i].accountid];
for(contact coo:newcon){
for(integer i=0;i<relatedacc.size();i++)
   coo.MailingStreet = relatedacc[0].ShippingStreet ;
   system.debug('+++++++++++MailingStreet +++++++++++++'+ coo.MailingStreet );
