Whether you're getting ready for a night out on the town or headed out the door for work, finding the perfect shade of lipstick is an important step in pulling a look together.
We spend hours in the makeup aisles testing shades on the backs of our hands to see if the shade matches our skin tones, but what about our teeth?
Choosing The Perfect Shade
You put a lot of thought into picking the perfect shade of lipstick. Consider the coloring as a compliment to your entire face, teeth included. A true orange shade can be flattering when worn correctly, but it can easily make you look yellow-toothed.
Try a matte finished lipstick. When choosing a bold color, especially orange, fading lips and feathering can be more noticeable. Matte tends to stay put a little longer.
Shades of orange also have a tendency to draw attention to redness and blemishes on the face. Try balancing that effect with a bit of bronzer over your foundation.
Across the forehead, down the bridge of your nose and don't neglect those cheekbones! So now that you've chosen your shade and you're confident, maybe you're noticing that your smile just isn't as white and bright as you'd like.
Orange lipstick definitely has a tendency to make your teeth appear yellow. If you're set on orange, come in for a cleaning and let us help you with that smile! A good cleaning can brighten your smile and a consultation with one of our hygienists can open your eyes to some of our other teeth whitening services. We offer a variety of options to help you pull off your daring new look!
