Bourjois Smile Enhancing Gloss in Fraise, £8.99

Q: Over the last few years, I’ve really noticed my teeth have yellowed. I used to love wearing bright lipstick but now I’m paranoid they make my smile look worse! Is there anything that will suit me?

Karen Lawson, 47, Newcastle

A: Teeth can yellow because of a number of factors, such as smoking, drinks like red wine and tea and simply with age. It’s true that lipstick can draw attention to stains but as long as you pick the right shade, you can still wear a statement lip.

Bourjois Smile Enhancing Gloss, £8.99, is a gorgeous lip colour and tooth brightening lip gloss in the one dual-ended product. Applied directly to teeth, the gel has special blue pigments to make your smile look brighter in an instant.

Clinique has a lipstick collection for a brighter smile. Our picks are High Impact Colour Lipstick in Go Fig (a suits-all pinky nude), Peach Pop (a muted coral) and Red-y to Wear (classic red), £16.50 each.
