Lipsticks might not be a dental health product, but don't underestimate how they affect your smile. The reds you wear, for example, can determine how white your teeth look in photos and real life. Blue-toned hues are 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?
