Finding the perfect shade of lipstick can be exceedingly difficult to say the very least.
There are many factors that come into play when choosing the perfect shade. Like, will this vampy-purple reveal my coffee stained teeth? Or worse, will this deep-red disclose last nights wine session with the girls?
When looking for the perfect shade to keep your teeth looking pearly as possible, the art of lipstick-wearing works similar to other types of color-correcting techniques. For example, green primers are notorious for correcting redness in the face, or peachy toned concealers correct the blue veins in your under-eye circles.
This color-correcting technique applies when it comes to your lips. Applying warm-tones will counteract the cool-tones; while cool-tones will counteract the warm tones, making your pearly whites appear whiter than usual.
Since teeth whitening is expensive(unless you have a rad dental plan)then the next best option is finding a shade of lipstick that will create the illusion of whiter looking teeth.
If a nude lip is your thang, then, for the most part, you’ve probably had trouble finding a lipstick that doesn’t make your teeth look yellow. That’s why opting for peachy-pink nudes like Matte Lip Velour in shade Naked Dress will keep your pearls looking white.
The key to finding the perfect pink lipstick is to look for shades with undertones of blue, than opposed to yellow, duh. Since cool-tones aren’t suited for everybody, try looking for a shade in berry pink—a touch of purple undertones will create the appearance of whiter teeth, rather than yellow or orange. If you’re a pretty in pink gal, then try our Matte Lip Velour in shade Poodle. We guarantee that it will keep your teeth looking as white as an egg-shell.
Red lipstick is for the bravest of hearts. A red lip can either make your teeth look extremely white or extremely yellow and brassy. To maximize the yellowing effect, blue tones(or cool-tones)is the way to go. Pink based lipsticks like, Purrfect Pout in shade Fur-ever will be relatively neutral.
As to be expected, darker shades, in general, will make your teeth appear to be yellower than they actually are. That’s when you unleash your inner vampire and opt for a vampy shade. Dark purples are usually the go-to shade to keep the yellow at bay—this is because they have a touch of pink or a touch of brown. A perfect purple with pink tones, like Matte Lip Velour in shade Bond, for example will help your teeth appear more white than its brown-toned counterparts
