Red lipsticks! Need we say more? Apparently we can! Red lipstick is a staple that no makeup drawer is complete without. It gives you confidence, makes you look more polished and admit it, you can get away with a bare face if you just add that pop of red. But it seems there’s more to red lipstick than meets the eye…or lips! Did you know that the perfect shade of red can brighten your whole look especially your TEETH? The key to finding the perfect red shade lies in the undertones of the color.
Simply put, red lipsticks with blue undertones will counteract the yellow in our teeth and make them look, well, whiter. You can do a simple test and rub the lipsticks on the back of your hand or on a white tissue to compare undertones. Trust us you will be able to tell if the lipstick has blue, yellow or red undertones. Yellow and red undertones lend the lipstick a warmer feel. But keep in mind that when lipstick is applied to your lips it will be affected by the base color of your lips and your body heat so your best bet is to try them out. To save you some time we have done the research, and below are the most universally-flattering best red lipsticks with cool undertones around, so let’s whiten our teeth right now!
