Makeup for Braces: Play them up or down?

Makeup for Braces: Play them up or down?

Depending on your personal preferences, you might want to highlight your braces, or perhaps you want to hide them a bit. Either way, here are some makeup tips to help you get the look you love while wearing braces!

To Make Braces Stand Out

To really draw attention to your braces, go for a red lip! For best results, choose a darker shade that compliments your skin tone. Selecting a matte lipstick can be helpful, since glossy formulas are more likely to smudge and get on your braces.

Be sure to choose a shade of lipstick that makes your teeth look whiter. Braces can look quite busy, so picking the right shade can help your smile look more clear and bright.

Keep your favourite lip balm handy. Having braces can make your lips quite dry. Lip balm will help keep your lips looking supple and soft, and feel better too.

To Draw Attention Away from Your Braces

Draw attention away from your braces by choosing a neutral shade of lip colour, and applying more dramatic eye makeup. Have fun experimenting with eyeshadow colours that complement the colour of your eyes, or try a smoky eye.

Another way to draw attention away from your braces is by going for a well-shaped, dramatic eyebrow look. The current trend for thicker, fuller eyebrows, makes this is easier than ever. There are lots of great eyebrow tutorials available on Youtube that can help you to perfect your look.
