Whiter teeth and a brighter smile mean a wider smile, so what's the harm in trying to lighten up those pearly whites? Of course there's a whole host of nifty products out there to do the business and well, from toothpastes, to US style kits that have been hitting up Instagram ads for what seems like years now, and then there are the spenny trips to the dentist to get it done professionally. All ok options. But what if we told you we could get the job done in a matter of seconds? No seriously.
It's all down to colour coding really. Blue tones bring out icy white tones and warm tones bring out yellowy ones, and it's those ones we want to say goodbye to when it comes to our teeth. A red lippy with blue undertones can hide a multitude of coffee, tea and red wine related staining sins. When we say blue undertones, we mean that as you look at the red colour, you're more likely to liken it to the pink side of the colour spectrum than the orange side. The ultimate in this sort of lipstick is MAC's classic Ruby Woo, £15.50 shade. It's a hero one-suits-all colour that'll brighten your smile up in a jiffy, trust us, you need this in your makeup bag. Slick it on and just see if you don't notice a difference.
