COLGATE® OPTIC WHITE® PARTNERS WITH CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST MARIO DEDIVANOVIC TO INTRODUCE NEW RADIANT™ TOOTHPASTE BY COLGATE® OPTIC WHITE®
The Brand and Artist Celebrate Radiant Beauty and Smiles Inspired by the Red Carpet
NEW YORK, NY (March 1, 2017) – Colgate® Optic White® is pleased to announce the latest addition to the Colgate Optic White portfolio, Radiant™ Toothpaste by Colgate® Optic White®. The new, premium formula goes beyond the surface to whiten teeth inside & out for a more radiant, white smile.
To celebrate the new launch, Colgate Optic White has partnered with the ultimate champion of beauty, Mario Dedivanovic, to help women everywhere bring out their inner radiance to look and feel their best. “My job is to enhance a woman’s looks based on her best features, and I’m a firm believer that a big part of that beauty and radiance comes from within and is best expressed with a show-stopping smile,” said Dedivanovic.
“It all starts with having the right beauty tools like the new Radiant Toothpaste by Colgate Optic White so every day you are ready to shine.”
“The launch of Radiant Toothpaste by Colgate Optic White represents our continued growth as a premium oral care beauty brand to help women achieve a radiant white smile,” said Bill Van de Graaf, Vice President and General Manager, North America Oral Care Marketing at Colgate-Palmolive. “We are excited to partner with Mario given his deep beauty expertise and passion for helping women everywhere feel beautiful inside and out.”
Mario kicked off his partnership with the brand by hosting an Instagram Live session demonstrating how to bring out your inner radiance through your smile, along with tips for achieving the best makeup looks from the red carpet at home. Let your radiance shine through on or off the red carpet by following Mario’s glam tips:
- A lot of my clients usually brush their teeth before I apply their lips. I make sure to pack my Radiant Toothpaste by Colgate Optic White in my kit just in case someone needs it. There’s no better confidence booster than a radiant white smile!
- For the ultimate radiant natural looking glow from within, dab a bit of petroleum jelly onto the cheekbones and blend with fingers or a damp beauty blender. Use translucent powder only on the T-Zone area.
- Use cream shadows on eyelids instead of powders to create a velvet-like texture for smoky eyes that lasts all night.
Radiant Toothpaste by Colgate Optic White is now available at retailers nationwide. For more from Mario on how to bring out your inner radiance all year long, follow @OpticWhite and @MakeupByMario on Twitter and Instagram for exclusive content, including tips, tutorials, interviews and more.
