Form Meets Function at Fashion Week with the Clarisonic Aria!

In keeping with a week focused on aesthetics and design, the new Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush fits right in among the hustle and bustle of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.

In order to get “runway ready” at the Chadwick Bell Spring/Summer 2013 show last week, the models received mini Clarisonic facials and sonic eye treatments from celebrity aesthetician Eileen Harcourt. Between running from show-to-show and attending late night soirees, models often neglect their most important accessory: their skin!

Sonic Cleansing

Before getting in the hair or makeup chair, models first stopped at the Clarisonic table to receive a refreshing Aria mini facial. A few minutes of relaxation was much appreciated amidst the vibrant backstage buzz.

Models were thrilled to hear that the Aria cleanses skin 6X better than manual cleansing and that it is gentle enough to use twice a day.  This sonic device removed any dirt and oil from the models’ skin allowing Lancôme skincare products to be absorbed more effectively.

 

Sonic Infusion

Who wants to look tired on the catwalk? Thankfully, the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System came to the models’ rescue!  Eileen used the device to gently knead serum into the skin around the models’ under-eye areas at 125 movements per second.  This sonic infusion thoroughly hydrated the models’ skin and helped combat under-eye bags. The minute long treatment was the perfect pick-me-up for those strutting under the bright lights of the runway!

 

 

 

 

 

Fashion-Forward and Functional

Busy models, stylists, makeup artists, editors and bloggers barely have time to sleep, let alone charge their electronics during Fashion Week.  The Clarisonic Aria’s functional USB charger was a life-saver for those spending the majority of the week backstage.  Through simply plugging Aria into a laptop, the device’s charge can last for hours.

 

 

 

A Perfect Canvas

Lancôme makeup artist Daniel Martin loves his Clarisonic and was thrilled about the addition of Aria to the backstage lineup.  A thorough Clarisonic cleansing by Eileen provided him with the perfect canvas for makeup application.  Foundations and concealers went on smoothly and evenly.  The Chadwick Bell look consisted of a natural, matte face with a strong emphasis on the eyes and cheeks.  The look conveyed both strength and vulnerability.

 

 

Final Look

The Chadwick Bell 2013 Spring/Summer Readywear Collection was inspired by the marriage of all things romantic and utilitarian with an emphasis on neutrals infused with small pops of green, yellow and violet color. 

Because the Lancôme makeup look was minimalistic with a focus on cheek bones and eyes, glowing skin truly took center stage. Aria’s “form meets function” motto came to life at the Chadwick Bell Show as the models strutted down the runway glowing with sonic style!
