A bright, healthy smile can be the ultimate showstopper and it’s important to make the most of it. Oral-B Vitality has teamed up with Max Factor make up artist Kate Conkey for the ultimate insider tips on how to get your make-up working for your smile, not against it:
When choosing a shade of red to complement your smile, go for a balanced red that is neither too orange nor too pink.
Yellow and blue are complementary colours, so blue makes yellow look more yellow and vice versa. If your teeth are healthy and white, a blue based lip colour will make your teeth look brighter. If your teeth are yellow, it will emphasise the discoloration.
For nude lips, a cappuccino or latte shade will make your teeth look the same. Opt for a nude tone with an uplifting hint of pink or soft peach.
An even skin tone will immediately make teeth look better. A foundation with medium coverage usually does the trick. Apply with a brush for the most professional looking application, concentrating colour in the centre panel of the face rather than the edges.
To emphasise your smile, do a minimal amount of eye make up and polish the brows with a brow shader. Firmly line the lips with a pencil and fill in with a matching lip colour. By minimising the eyes and strengthening the lip shape and colour, your mouth will automatically be the focal point.
Also make sure that the Oral-B Vitality toothbrush should be part of your daily beauty regime. Just two minutes, twice a day, is all it takes. These nifty gadgets deliver a thorough clean, does all the work so there’s is no need to scrub, and it is clinically proven to remove more plaque than an ordinary manual toothbrush and is available from all good stockists nationwide.
