Winter Makeup Tips - Pearly Whites

Hey Chicas!

The holiday season generally comes with pictures....lots of pictures and events.  You want to look your best, and that involves getting your teeth to look the whitest they can.  Now you can do the whole whitening thing, which depends on the brand and your teeth and the type of stains that you, yourself have.  But why go to all that trouble and expense, if the lip product you are applying is coloring your teeth?

Yup, I speak from experience and then a little research.  If you are applying gold, either pure gold, or gold undertone, or gold sparkles, lipgloss of lipstick you are doing just that, making your teeth appear yellow.  Just think about it, gold sparkles, what is the color of light that they reflect?  Yellow.  Where do you think it will reflect on?  Yup, your white teeth. 

So you want to try and avoid gold in your lip products.  I know it is hard, but you just have to look more closely at the color in the tube you are buying, once your aware of it, you will notice them.


You want to go towards the silver end of the spectrum.  Because, if you think about it, and look at the pictures what does silver sparkles, reflect?  White.  Where do you think it will reflect on?  Yup, your white teeth.  Making them appear, likely not more white, but the silver will not color your teeth yellow.

You can also avoid all this looking at the color of sparkles by using just a plain gloss, with no sparkles.  You do have options.  But if you are concerned about your teeth, or don't want to have to worry about pictures...go for the silver.

I have filmed a short video on this, with some examples of gold and silver sparkles, to help you.  Below are the swatches...
 







So, the colors go from left to right, and silver to gold, the video below will tell you what the colors are.



Hope your white teeth have a time to shine!
