1. Go plum on lips!

A deep plum lipstick not only elevates an ordinary outfit, it makes your teeth appear whiter too! Oral-B dental expert Dr Uchenna Okoye says: “A blue-based lipstick, such as a plum colour, will counteract any yellowness in teeth.”

2. Start a teeth-whitening regimen

A sparkling bright smile will boost confidence and curb the January blues. Dr Uchenna recommends using the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Glamorous Shine Toothpaste and Oral-B Pro 600 White & Clean electric toothbrush to help combat plaque build-up, prevent tartar and remove surface stains.

3. ‘Secretly’ emphasise your eyes

You don’t have to be obvious with your eye makeup to make an impact: a subtle touch of eyeliner in the water line will give your eyes a steely confidence.

Using a chocolate brown or gun metal grey eye pencil, line the inside water line of your eyes on the top and bottom, drawing right into the tear duct. This intensifies and sharpens the almond shape of your eyes without looking overly made.

4. Eat strawberries – yes really!

A glistening smile radiates health and vitality but it’s not just how you clean your teeth that matters, it’s what you eat that counts too. “Eat crunchy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower celery and apples as these foods actively help to clean and protect your teeth. Plus, strawberries are renowned for keeping teeth white as they contain malic acid, an enzyme that encourages saliva production, so you naturally rinse your mouth as you eat,” says Dr Uchenna Okoye.

5. Pamper your scalp

A healthy scalp promotes strong, shiny hair. Celebrity hair stylist Peter Lux comments: “Head & Shoulders Extra Thickening Treatment helps gives your hair volume right at the root where you need it, leaving you with light weight natural looking volume.”

6. Give your face a ‘cosmetic lift’

Adding a serum to your beauty kit will leave it looking firm, illuminated and beaming with self-assurance. Plus it creates the perfect base for foundation. First apply a serum that’s packed with nutrients, massage into your skin and pat the excess down. Then apply a primer. This will give your foundation longevity and help smooth out your imperfections. We recommend Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum.
