A bright, dazzling smile is one of your best accessories, and the right makeup colors can enhance its brilliance even further. Choosing the right shades of makeup can make your teeth appear whiter and brighter, boosting your confidence and overall appearance, both of which can pay huge dividends in the professional world. Continue reading to learn a little more about how the right makeup can boost your pearly whites, especially if you’ve recently had them whitened by your dentist, along with some suggestions for makeup shades to consider.

How Does Makeup Make My Smile Shine Brighter?

If your teeth are stained due to years of chronically poor oral hygiene, you shouldn’t hope to be able to cover it up with lipstick. However, if you undergo dental treatment such as teeth whitening to boost your teeth’s appearance, you can enhance their new look even further by wearing certain makeup. It’s all about creating a nice amount of contrast that makes your teeth seem whiter; lipstick cannot physically whiten your teeth the same way professional-grade whitening agents can.

Excellent Lipstick Colors That Will Enhance Your Smile

If you’re hoping to accentuate your smile’s whiteness following cosmetic dentistry, there are many makeup options, especially lipstick shades, that can seemingly brighten your smile. The majority of these colors are easily accessible at various pharmacies, stores, and makeup counters. Here are a few ideas:

  • Classic red – Classic red lipsticks with blue undertones are timeless and work wonders in making your teeth look whiter; cherry red or ruby red are two popular, stunning options.
  • Berry – Berry-colored lipsticks with blueish undertones, including raspberry or cranberry shades, create a beautiful contrast against white teeth.
  • Cool-toned pink – This is a little less subtle than a bold red, but just as effective. Be mindful that warmer-toned shades might bring out yellow tones in teeth.
  • Nude – The perfect color for any occasion, shades of nude with pinkish or pale hues can vastly enhance the brightness of your teeth.
  • Violet – Similar to other blue and purple shades, this cool-toned purple has all of the right undertones to mute any yellow hues present in your teeth.

It’s not just about the lipstick, though—the correct blush, eye makeup and nail polish can also subtly enhance your smile’s whiteness. But in any case, with the right colors and techniques, you can accentuate your white teeth and showcase your beautiful smile to the world, making your confidence soar!
