lipsticks for yellow teeth (yes, charming subject!).
There was a thread on here a week or so ago asking the same question it had some great recommendations. I'll see if I can find it. The only way I can describe blue based red is its more of a cold red, where orange based ones are more warm and summery.
ive just found it at the last pages of search - it was really helpful! thanks for the tip blue based!
Im looking for an everyday sort of colour, one i can wear just on school run, popping to shops, meeting friends for a coffee. Quite casual but still something to brighten up my face. dont think i want to make a statement.
bought Mac New York Red Apple the other day. Its blue tinged i think and i like it because im a bit scared of red lipstick but its sheer so you can slick one coat on and it brightens my face up but its very wearable. You can also build it up if you want to go more bold
I use MAC Angel which is a pale pink.Just steer away from anything with any hint of yellow/orange in it and you should be fine. If you want to wear red then a cherry or darker red should be fine - just steer away from anything that looks like tomato!
