Hello Beautiful Ladies! (& men who like beauty & makeup)
Id like to start this years blog with a sensitive subject because there are many people who do not have white teeth of appropriate size that are perfect and who cannot afford porcelain dental veneers. Sometimes, this defect might dominate so much on your face, that it could kill your confidence. Personally, I have a pair of slightly crooked front teeth, which ruin my confidence, even after 2 years of braces and yes i have porcelain veneers, they still are crooked because i grind my teeth at night. I am lucky enough to wear Secret Veneers over my teeth - but i am fully aware not everyone can afford this option. So after a lot of experimenting and research, I tried to jot down a few tips for people like me who have a not-so-good relationship with their teeth. Read on to know more.

The first step is always to seek medical help, i am in no way promoting not visiting the dentist. Good dental hygiene is a MUST!
Now coming to the makeup tips, a very good idea would be to draw the attention away from your teeth. Highlight some other feature of your face and use a light or a neutral shade of lipstick. A very good example for this is Malaika Arora. Despite having noticeably big front teeth, she is considered one of the most beautiful women in the industry. If you notice her makeup, you will find that she hardly wears bold lip colours. She has beautifully defined cheekbones and she always highlights them. She also maintains a fit body. So her style, her body and her beautiful cheekbones definitely bring out the best in her (who cares what her teeth look like!)
Apply your blush correctly! -If you have slightly big front teeth, apply the blush on the insides of your cheeks. This way, your face tends to appear slightly plumper and will definitely take the attention away from your teeth. This tip has been my go-to tip for a long time now.
Contouring - another tip for protruding teeth. Try to avoid contouring, especially your cheeks. Because contouring your cheeks narrows your facial structure, which highlights your protruding teeth even more.
Keep your skin healthy & radiant -Take good care of your skin and body. Because, trust me, good skin makes up for every flaw. And also, maintain a healthy weight, which doesn’t make you very skinny, because when you get really thin, the teeth tend to stand out even more like tombstones!
Try cool toned lipsticks- If you have yellow teeth, use cooler toned lipsticks, because the blue tones in the lipstick will cancel out the yellowness of your teeth and make them appear brighter.
Go for pink neutrals - When it comes to nude lipsticks, use pinker toned nudes rather than the brown toned nudes. Because most browns highlight the yellowness of the teeth.
Try Teeth Whitening - We have a good range of teeth whitening options in the shop to suit every client, whether you have tried whitening before or not -
After all white crooked teeth is better than yellow crooked teeth!
Confidence is the key! - Embrace what you have with confidence. Remember that something as small as teeth cannot make or break your confidence unless you let it!. Google Madonna once and go through her pictures. She is nothing less than the pinnacle of body confident! she was one of the foremost sex symbols of the last 30 years. Now, look at her teeth. They are miles away from perfection. But her aura, her style, her body and her skin make up for that flaw so well. Madonna has never changed the gap in her teeth and she has made millions regardless of her enormous gap in between her ivory chompers! So, highlight the best in you and your flaws will fade away. I hope you find these tips useful and if you do please leave a comment & share this post!
