Play them up or down? Makeup Tips for Braces

Whether you want to highlight your braces, or camouflage them a bit, here are some makeup tips to help you do either!

Makeup to Highlight Your Braces and Your Smile

If you're an outgoing person looking to draw attention to your braces, go for a red lip! For best results, choose a darker shade that compliments your skin tone. Matte lipstick can be helpful since glossy formulas are prone to get on your braces and smudge.

Be sure to choose a shade of lipstick that makes your teeth look whiter. Braces can often look quite busy, so these shades of red can help your smile look more bright and clear.

It's also a good idea to keep a lip balm handy. Braces can make your lips feel dry, and lip balm helps to keep them looking soft and supple.

Makeup to Camouflage Your Braces In Subtle Style

If you'd prefer to draw attention away from your braces, choose a neutral lip colour and try applying more dramatic eye makeup. Try a smokey eye or experiment with eyeshadow colours that complement the colour of your eyes.

A well-shaped dramatic eyebrow look can help to draw attention away from your braces. The current trend for thicker, fuller eyebrows, makes this is easier than ever. Check out Youtube to see a number of great eyebrow tutorials to help you perfect your look.
