I'm trying to find a good blue based lipstick? I don't even know what that really means but I heard they make your teeth look whiter...

Asked by

Yes blue based lipsticks will make your teeth look whiter, as opposed to warm/yellow based lipsticks that will accentuate the yellow in your teeth.

To understand what a blue based and yellow based lipstick is you have to have a little understanding of the color wheel :)

All the colors on the left side of the wheel are blue based so any pink, purple, fuchsias, blue reds will make your teeth look whiter. And on the right side are warmer colors like orange, peach, coral, red orange shades will make your teeth look a little more yellow.

Any pink lipsticks that lean a little more purple will have strong blue undertones. Pinks with a hint of lavender/lilac will be more blue based than more neutral pinks. Bright fuchsias and barbie pinks are also very blue based!

Try pink lipsticks like MAC Snob, Maybelline Superstay Lipstick in Perpetual Peony, Revlon Stormy Pink, MAC Girl About Town, Covergirl Spellbound.

What lipstick (drug store and high end) is like the one Kylie Jenner used last week in that black and white crotchet top?

I’ve been getting quite a few questions about lipstick dupes for lipsticks in Kylie’s recent Instagram photos! Kylie Jenner seems to be wearing a lot of darker mauves, rosy nudes and beige nude lipsticks. Lip liner is also key to get her new signature pouty lip look! 

Try shades like

MAC Brave

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 08 and 14. 08 (left) is more of a rosy nude while 14 (right) is more of a beige nude.

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Spiked With Rum

MAC Velvet Teddy

Can i use a powder thats 2 or 3 shades darker than my skin tone as a bronzer for contoring

Asked by

Totally! But i’d recommend maybe going 3 - 4 shades darker because if it’s too similar to your skin it can look muddy :)

I’d recommend something like the Loreal True Match Powder in one of their “cool” shades instead of their warm/neutral shades because you want to use a cooler powder for contouring. The Loreal True Match Powders are super silky and blend like a dream making them great for contouring and bronzing!
