A sparkling smile is considered a highly attractive feature, so if you’ve just whitened your teeth, it’s natural to want to show them off. Sharing your newly perfected grin can boost your confidence so that you both look and feel great. If you wear makeup and are looking for ways to draw attention to the recent improvements, you’re in luck! Keep reading to learn about 5 lipstick colors you can wear that will help your teeth shine!

Shade #1: Blue-Based Red

If you don’t already have a classic red in your lipstick collection, now’s a great time to include it. This versatile color can be worn on any skin tone during any season of the year. That said, it’s important to find one with the right tint to achieve the intended effect. For example, hues with warmer undertones, like brick red or fiery scarlet, might bring out the yellow in your teeth. Try to find a blue-based red, like apple red, to make your pearly whites pop.

Shade #2: Nude

Neutral pigments are also incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down as needed. If you want one to boost your bright grin, avoid warm tones like caramel, peach, and beige. These can bring out the yellow so that your teeth appear darker in comparison. Lipsticks that include pink or mauve tend to be cooler-toned and will help them stand out in a good way.

Shade #3: Berry

If your style is more bold than conservative, then a berry color may be just the thing you need to accentuate your grin. This option can come in both warmer tones, like strawberries, and cooler hues, like blueberries and blackberries. Choosing the latter will boost the white in your teeth so your entire face lights up when you smile.

Shade #4: Violet

For the trendsetters who want something a little more exciting, then why not select a cool-toned purple? It has the right undertones to minimize the appearance of the yellow in your teeth, so they appear brighter. You can confidently step outside of the box when you rock this color.

Shade #5: Silver Gloss

If you prefer gloss over lipstick, don’t fret! You can still find a way to highlight your recent cosmetic work. Look for a lip gloss that contains a silver shimmer, instead of a gold glitter, to enhance your appearance. If you’re brave, you can experiment with applying this gloss over one of the colors listed here for extra sparkly results!

With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find a beautiful new look to show off your bright white smile!
