There are few things worse than posing for a picture in your favorite makeup look, only to realize your teeth aren’t quite the pearly whites you wish they were. A stained smile can seriously put a damper on your beauty look. Whether you’re loading up on coffee or wine, maintaining perfectly white teeth is easier said than done. Luckily, you can wear lipstick to make teeth look whiter. That’s right, makeup really is magic. Read on five lipstick shades that’ll make your teeth look whiter and brighter.
There’s no denying the beauty of a nude lip—and it’s the perfect lip color for just about any occasion. You can sport it day-to-day or pair it with a smokey eye for a night out on the town. In order to boost the brightness of your pearly whites, steer clear of peachy or brown shades of nude, as their warm undertones can cause your teeth to appear more yellow (yikes). Instead, pick a pinky nude. We love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick in Daring Blush and All Out Pout.
If you’re a fan of dark, bold lipstick shades, there’s no better time of year than winter to pull out those vampy hues. Just make sure to stick with berries rather than warm-toned shades. The purple-blue base of a berry lip will balance out any staining on your pearly whites. If you need some shade inspiration, take your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Rogue Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Dare, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Splendid Blackberry, and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Roseblood.
‘Tis the season for red lips. While there are few makeup products that scream holiday cheer quite like a red lipstick, there’s a fine line between a red lipstick to make teeth look whiter and one that causes your teeth to resemble a not-so-white hue. A blue-based red is the way to go—so stay away from any orange-based shades. Try the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Am Worth It, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Matte Lipstick in Devil’s Matte-Vocate Red, and the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Classic Wine.
For those daytime makeup looks that you want something a little more popping than a pinky nude, or nights out where you aren’t feeling an extremely bold lip color, try a cool-toned pink lipstick. As we mentioned above, a warm-toned lipstick will bring out yellow tones in your teeth. A few cool pinks we love are the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in Candyman, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Miss Magenta, and the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Glazed Pink.
Get out of your comfort zone with a trendy blue lip color. When it comes to lipsticks that will help your teeth appear whiter and brighter, it doesn’t get much better than a full on blue lipstick. Whether you choose to go for a brighter or deeper blue is up to you.
Take your lip look to the next level with these two tips.
Beyond the color of your lipstick, the finish can play a part in how your teeth look. Be wary of lipsticks with lots of shimmer, especially ones with silver reflects. They can make your teeth look dingy. On the other hand, one of our favorite finishes for a bright smile is a slight gloss.
Whatever lip color you choose, having a smooth, flake-free pout can make all the difference in your lipstick application and its effect on your smile and overall beauty look. To keep your lips soft and smooth, exfoliate them using a lip scrub. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub for a silky-smooth pout.
