The secret to whiter looking teeth without expensive treatments? It’s all in the lipstick. Most of us enjoy a regular latte, tea, or maybe even red wine, but these little luxuries can have a big impact on our pearly (or not so pearly) whites. We don’t need to cut these things out completely, but we can help make your teeth appear whiter – we’ve just got to be clever with the lipsticks shades we choose. Pick a blue-toned shade and teeth can look considerably whiter, but pick a orange-toned shade and it might have the opposite effect.
Below, we select our favourite shades to give the illusion of a whiter smile. Not only can these shades make your teeth appear whiter, but also the whites of your eyes, meaning brighter, more sparkly eyes as well as dazzling teeth. Win-win!
Red Shades for Whiter Teeth
The best red shades to make your teeth look whiter are typically blue-toned reds. These cooler tones eliminate the appearance of stains or general yellowness. Orange-toned reds are undeniably gorgeous and one of our favourite shades, yet are less able to disguise the effects of our regular lattes. Blue-toned reds are also among the most flattering lipstick shades, as they look great on pretty much all skin tones – sign us up!
Nude Shades for Whiter Teeth
When it comes to nudes, there are so many shade variations: pink toned, peach toned, brown toned….the list goes on. If you’re looking for a shade that will make teeth appear whiter, opt for a shade that has cool or pinky undertones as opposed to orange tones. Just like with reds, warmer tones run the risk of highlighting yellowness in teeth. Pink, pale, and cool and blue tones are your friend here!
