Lipsticks might not be a dental health product, but don't underestimate how they affect your smile. The reds you wear, for example, can actually enhance your teeth's whiteness in photos and in real life. Reds that are on the cooler side (or those with blue undertones) particularly good at this, since color theory says that blue and yellow are polar opposites that cancel each other out. This means that any yellow hues on your teeth will easily be toned down by the blues in your lipstick. Now isn't that convenient?
