my teeth are yellow

by pinky
(india)

I have yellowish teeth which are accentuated with few lipsticks. I have tried finding undertones but still I dont understand which shades suit me best.

Personally, corals are my favorite shades as my lips look natural in those! But I think they tend to yellow my teeth further.

I have a fair to whitish skin which becomes pink at times, and I also have slight grayish dark circles.

Please suggest which lipsticks suit me. Thank you!

Hi Pinky

You are right!

Coral colours may look natural but these colours will make most women's teeth look even more yellow.

If your concern is to have a natural look, then I recommend brown lipstick.

Yes, perhaps it doesn't sound so good, but I can tell you that when I wear brown lipstick, my teeth look amazingly white (and I have not had them whitened).

Perhaps on those occasions when you want a more dressy look, use a red lipstick that has a blue undertone.

A red lipstick can have an orange undertone and this will not help with your yellowish teeth. Make sure the red lipstick has a blue undertone.

Pinky, let me know how you go with these colours.
