Not all of us are blessed with a beautiful set of pearly whites. And in-clinic teeth whitening treatments are an investment. The easiest way to make your teeth look whiter is to choose a lipstick shade that creates the illusion of a brighter smile.
‘Bright shades of hot pink and classic Hollywood reds with blue tones really help give the appearance of whiter teeth,’ she says. ‘These tones also make the whites of our eyes sparkle.’ Quite the added bonus. ‘You’re also not restricted at all by finish, the colour is what’s key here.’

The colours to avoid, as they make teeth appear more yellow, are nudes and warm shades with brown or orange undertones.
We recommend pairing your lipstick with a whitening pen, like Spotlight Oral Care’s Teeth Whitening Pen. It’s a cracking teeth whitening kit that’s ideal for on the go.
