“First, hold a piece of white paper next to your mouth and compare your teeth to the paper,” Weston says. “If your teeth appear more yellow, warmer lipstick shades in the peach and nude families will make your teeth appear brighter. If your teeth appear in the blue-gray range, wear the cooler shades of pink and berry.”

To go one extra step, top off with a shimmering pink gloss and face bronzer. “This always make teeth pop and appear whiter,” Weston adds.
