Smiling can make you feel good. It can brighten up your mood and change your day for the better. But if your pearly whites aren’t that white, you can feel so self-conscious that you avoid to smile at all. You’d like to brighten them, but whitening treatments at the dentist can be expensive or maybe the procedure is just too harsh for your sensitive teeth.
But don’t despair. Makeup, clothes and jewellery can make them appear whiter. No, I’m not suggesting you apply makeup on your teeth or anything crazy like that. But using the right shades can really enhance your smile. Here’s how:
1. Say goodbye to yellow-based lipstick shades
If you have yellow teeth, warm yellow-based and orange-based lipstick shades such as corals, browns, oranges and tomatoes red, will emphasize them. Instead opt for blue-based shades like bright pinks, blue-based reds and wine tones. These will counteract the colour of your teeth, making them appear whiter.
2. Sunkissed glow
Have you noticed that your teeth seem whiter when you have a tan? It’s the contrast between the darker colour of your skin and the lighter hue of your teeth that does the trick. But don’t sunbathe or use tanning beds. They are dangerous and can cause premature aging and cancer. Instead, get that beautiful sunkissed glow by dusting a thin layer of bronzer on your face.
3. Stay away from pure white clothes
4. Silver girl
Another way to play down the fact that your pearly whites aren’t as white as you’d like is to avoid gold jewellery. As we’ve seen above, warm tones emphasize yellowness. Wear silver jewellery, sparkling crystals and even rhinestones instead.
And now, smile with confidence! 🙂
