Wear red lipstick (with blue undertones)We love makeup, which is why this tip is especially awesome (not to mention easy): Choose a red lipstick with blue undertones to instantly make your teeth look whiter, says Gregg Lituchy, DDS, of Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor in New York City. Blue is a cool undertone that's opposite of warm-based tones, like orange and yellow.
