Teeth are white, right? Not quite so. Within “white,” there is a lot of variation. Turns out that most people’s teeth come in four basic shade ranges, and within each range are different levels of darkness. These basic shade ranges include:
- reddish brown
- reddish yellow
- reddish gray
But when choosing lipstick for brighter, whiter teeth you only need to know one color. Blue!
According to Elle magazine, any color you choose should have a cool, blue undertone. Think about the color of summer fruits: fresh watermelon, strawberry, raspberry, grape. If you like nude colors, choose sheer formulas with a hint of gloss.
Here are the no-no colors: Any color with orange undertones like coral, orangey reds or browns. And for the brightest smile, stay away from neons and frosty shimmers.
