National Lipstick Day is coming up on July 29th. This is a day to celebrate this amazing cosmetic that women all over the world over have had a love affair with for centuries. It is also a chance to learn more about it and how women use it to get a brighter smile. However, it is also a good time to learn that there is a solid reason lipstick isn’t putting your dentist out of business.
Lipstick helps to create an illusion of whiter teeth but only if you choose the right shade. The basic idea is one of color tones and how they play off other colors to make some stand out more than others. This idea is used a lot in makeup. For example, green concealer is often used to downplay redness in the skin and create a evener skin tone.
When it comes to lipstick, warmer tones bring out yellow in teeth, but cooler tones counteract the yellow and make teeth look whiter. So, the right lipstick choice can really enhance your overall look.
But It’s Not a Miracle Solution
Of course, lipstick creates only an optical illusion, tricking the eye into thinking teeth are whiter than they truly are. The only real way to make your teeth whiter is to opt for cosmetic dentistry treatments. Teeth whitening procedures and porcelain veneers provide a more permanent solution. You get a great looking smile that doesn’t require lipstick for enhancement. Plus, getting your teeth whitened or getting veneers will allow you to wear those warm toned lipsticks that you couldn’t before without making your teeth look more yellow.
