You’ve got highlights on your cheekbones and your eyebrows are giving that #KilayIsLife vibes. Your make-up might be on point…but how about your teeth?
Here are some tips to remember when applying make-up to help accentuate that lovely smile.
Choose your lipstick color wisely
Your lips are your main asset in any attempt to set your teeth sparkling. That's not surprising considering they are the closest feature to your teeth. They will draw the eye, so you want them to work for you. Stick to shades that emphasize the white tones of your teeth. Red, pink or berry-colored lipsticks are perfect, particularly if they have cool blue undertones.
Bronzer is your friend
Despite living in the Philippines, it’s not always possible to go to the beach and tan! Get that sun kissed look by using a bronzer! bronzer can also change the general color of your skin, give it a slight contour and bring your smile into good light. There's no need to go to Bora or tan by the pool. Just apply a touch of bronzer, preferably one that doesn't have any golden sparkle to it, as that can enhance yellow tones.
Take care of your hair
Even hair color makes a difference as teeth seem whiter when they're set against darker hair. Lucky for us Pinoys, since we have naturally dark hair! You might want to consider this before changing to a lighter hair color. Lighter colored hair draws attention to your off-white teeth, so consider breaking the color through low and highlights in your hair!
As you can see, the key to crafting a dazzling smile using hair and make-up is all in the color choice. Before leaving home for an event, ask yourself if you've combined the right colors together for your face. With careful planning, it can make all the difference to enhancing that bright, white smile.
