On your wedding day, you'll be smiling from sun up to sun down. Make sure your teeth are up for the challenge. Score a dazzling smile with a few simple tricks and a secret weapons.
We consulted Brides Live Wedding sponsor Neutrogena makeup artist Amy Oresman for her whitening tips and tricks.
For starters, Oresman recommends using two-hour Rembrandt Dual Whitening Kit in Deeply White. "I'd put this on right after I get out of the shower, and by the time I'm done with my hair, makeup, and clothing routine, it's ready to remove," Oresman says. "Your teeth will also look whiter against clear, sun-kissed skin. But remember never to get a facial or a spray tan within a week of your wedding. The optimal time to do it is three weeks out for the facial and one week out for the spray tan."
And if you don't want to use a strict whitening product, certain lipstick colors help enhance a smile's luminosity. Oresman's personal favorite? Peaches and pinks. "Soft peaches and pinks are great for enhancing a white smile," Oresman advises.
Don't forget to ensure your skin is its best and brightest, especially the skin surrounding your lips. Oresman suggests using Neutrogena's Eye Brightening Perfector, "it is also the perfect product to crispen up the edges of your mouth and create a smooth and perfect lip line."
