Everyone wants a bright white smile, but most teeth whitening solutions need some time to work. Using a whitening toothpaste can help remove deep set teeth stains below the tooth's surface for a whiter smile, but if you're in a time crunch, you need instant whitening solutions. Luckily, some of the best ways to instantly brighten your smile can be found right in your makeup bag. Knowing the right lipstick colour for whiter teeth (and some other teeth-brightening makeup tricks) can help you see a brighter smile while your oral hygiene routine is slowly working its magic.
A Pop of Colour
Your lip colour draws out certain hues in your skin tone. Just as deep berry shades flatter darker skin tones and cool pinks look great with pale skin, the lip colour you choose can make your teeth look whiter in comparison. Avoid any lip colour with gold, yellow or orange undertones, which provide little contrast and can actually give the illusion of a yellow cast on your teeth. Instead, the best lipstick colour for whiter teeth is any shade with blue undertones, like a true cherry red or even a blue-toned plum.
Colour balance isn't just for your lips. Every skin tone has different undertones, writes self, usually categorised as warm, cool or neutral. If your skin has warm undertones, you might tend toward an orange or peachy colour for blush, but choosing a bright pink can have the same teeth-whitening effect as a bright red lipstick. Sweep the blush along your cheekbones and the perimeter of your face to give your teeth a bright boost.
