A co-promotional partnership is a marketing tactic where two or more brands partner to combine their audiences to promote a product under both of their names. In this case, we have both Netflix and Shondaland partnering with numerous brands. By doing this, the network and production company are leveraging the brand's audience to drive a new audience to their production. The brand is getting promoted on another channel as well. This opportunity allows for new audiences to discover the brands!
Cosmetic company, Pat McGrath Labs partnered with the production on both seasons. Makeup guru Pat McGrath created a capsule collection consisting of the brand’s signature MTHRSHP eyeshadow palette in regency-inspired matte and metallic shades of peony, pink, rose gold, gold, plum, aqua, and chartreuse; a smudge-free black kohl eyeliner, dewy lipsticks in five glossy satin colors; a pearlescent body shimmer; and a cheek palette with three blushes and a highlighter. Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan was the face of the campaign for the season 2 collection, with the capsule collection being used on the set of the second season by makeup artist Erika Ökvist. The season 2 collection launched a day before the show’s premiere, and the packaging channeled Bridgerton’s romantic springtime-in-London aesthetic.

The collection was built on her love for iconic pieces from earlier times in history, such as lockets, meaningful charms, and posey rings.
