Bright, Pearly Whites + Giveaway

Summer is filled with weddings, family parties, showers and just about any other event you can cram into the summer months. One thing that each of these things have in common is that you're likely to be photographed with friends and family, and I don't know about you, but I always want to look my best. Looking my best starts with a pearly white smile. Thanks to products like, Colgate Optic White, I can achieve a white smile just in time for, in this case, my birthday.

Getting ready for any fun event in my life comes prepping. Choosing a fun outfit and accessorizing are priority number one when I'm getting ready to attend a summer event, but you can go one step further and keep your teeth healthy and white by using Colgate Optic White products year round. With a full line of oral care products ranging from toothpaste and mouthwash to a toothbrush with built-in daily touch-up pen, you'll be set for anything life throws at you.

To ensure you feel confident and head to your event with confidence, I'm going to share my top beauty tip. Let's be honest, great makeup the day of your event makes you feel fabulous. But what really kicks it up a notch is having a beautiful, white smile accentuated by fabulous lip color. To achieve your megawatt smile, stick with lip colors that have a blue undertone. This blue hue helps to downplay any yellow or staining and helps give you the bright, white smile you're looking to achieve. Stay away from colors that have an orange/coral base, frosty tones or neons as they tend to make your teeth appear yellowed.

Two of my go-to favorites lip colors include:
1 // MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo: rich, bold red helps make your smile classic and beautiful
2 // Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Fuschia Flash: For those who aren't into the red scene, try this punchy fuschia

Don't forget that your fabulous smile starts with awesome hygiene, so head over to your local Meijer and snag some of the Colgate Optic White products and get to brushing. You'll notice a whiter smile in just a few short days. Cheers ladies!
