5 Lipstick Shades For A Brighter Smile

Here's the thing about being young and vibrant: going out with your best girl-friends and painting the town red. And what do you need for that perfect Ladies Night? A smile that keeps heads turning through the night.

But before you reach for your go-to lip colour, ensure that your smile is bright, white, and fresh for long-lasting confidence through the night. We recommend a whitening toothpaste such as Closeup Deep Action toothpaste for its amazing Micro Shine Crystals that effectively polishes teeth and removes yellow stains for a brighter smile. 

Once you've achieved that bright, white smile, grab a lipstick in a colour that will make your smile stand out even more.
