Makeup for Braces: Play them up or down?

Makeup for Braces: Play them up or down?

Depending on your personal style, you might want to highlight your braces, or maybe you'd prefer to hide them a bit. Whatever your style, here are some makeup tips to help!

Make Them Look Good

Go for a rich red lip when you feel like drawing attention to your braces!

For best results, choose a darker shade that compliments your skin tone. Matte lipstick can be helpful since glossy formulas are more likely to smudge and get on your braces.

It's a good idea to select a shade of lipstick that makes your teeth look whiter. Braces can look quite busy, so this can help your smile look more clear and bright.

Having braces can make your lips quite dry, so keep some lip balm handy to help keep your lips looking supple and soft.

Draw Attention Away

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

Another way that you can 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 to help you perfect your look.
