The Clarisonic Opal was the Perfect Pick-Me-Up at Fashion Week!
The hustle and bustle of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week can often take a toll on a model’s skin. Thankfully the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System was present to help them get runway ready.
In order to revive tired eyes and relieve skin, the models backstage at the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2013 show received Clarisonic Opal treatments from makeup artist Romy Soleimani and skincare treatments from Joanna Vargas on February 10, 2013. The backstage area, sponsored by Beauty.com, was a true treat for all models.
Clarisonic Takes Center Stage, Backstage!
Models, stylists, makeup artists, editors and bloggers all took a moment to learn about Clarisonic while backstage at Cynthia Rowley. Editors from Makeup.com, Teen Vogue, NYLON and more were able to view the Clarisonic product line and receive information about the Opal Sonic Infusion System treatments that were provided to models prior to their makeup application. Everyone was delighted at how gentle the device felt against their skin and was amazed at its ability to provide an immediate improvement to the under-eye area.
Who wants to look tired on the catwalk? Thankfully, the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System came to the models’ rescue! Romy used the device to gently knead serum into the skin around the models’ under-eye areas. 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, and was perfect for those who had been at shows since 6AM that morning.
A Perfect Canvas
Stila makeup artists were thrilled about the addition of the Opal to the backstage lineup. A quick sonic infusion treatment by Romy provided them with the perfect canvas for makeup application and added hydration under their eyes. Concealers went on smoothly and evenly. The Cynthia Rowley look consisted of a matte face with a strong emphasis on dark, vampy purple lips and russet eyes.
The Final Look: Cynthia Rowley
The Cynthia Rowley Fall 2013 Collection was inspired by “Urban Romance.” A love affair with New York City was her base, but with a dark twist. Models wore “moody” makeup consisting of violets and shimmery shadows. With heavy coats of mascara and brushed-through brows, models were prepped with a gloomy yet sophisticated look.
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!
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.
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.
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!
This year at the Mercedes Benz Spring 2012 Fashion Week, Clarisonic proved that a sonic skin care regimen is the secret ingredient to giving models a runway-ready glow. Our celebrity esthetician Eileen Harcourt was backstage at the Chris Benz and VPL shows last week prepping models with Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing and Opal Sonic Infusion systems.
Running from show to show and attending glamorous Fashion Week parties can be taxing on a model’s skin, but thankfully Clarisonic was able to come to the rescue! Here Eileen uses the New York Skyline Mia – which launched in honor of Fashion Week — to remove existing makeup and create a clear canvas for makeup and allowed them to apply foundations and concealers evenly.
A week’s worth of shows from day to night can leave a model with dreaded dark circles. Thankfully the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion acted as the magic wand to revive tired eyes. The Opal combines sonic micro-massage with proprietary anti-aging serum to work immediately on appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Skin is always in at VPL! Models rocked a neutral look with little eye makeup and a nude lip. Makeup Artists used little makeup on the models, so it was up to the Clarisonic team to make each model’s skin shine with sonic cleansing. Eileen and her talented staff made sure each model had the fresh look the VPL designers desired. As the models made their way down the runway with slicked back hair, their glowing skin took center stage.
At Chris Benz, the inspiration was “hot summer nights” and Warhol superstars such Candy Darling. The 1960s inspired look featured big hair, burnt orange lips and a sea foam green eye. The sonic cleansing with Clarisonic allowed these mod models to rock these vibrant designer duds.

Clarisonic was a hit for the second day in a row at New York Fashion Week. Our celebrity esthetician Eileen Harcourt was backstage at the Chris Benz show Monday afternoon prepping models with Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing and Opal Sonic Infusion systems. Several of the models remembered Harcourt from previous fashion events and couldn’t wait to get their Clarisonic facial!
The theme of Chris Benz’s show was “An All-American Girl in Paris,” and Harcourt want to accentuate that theme with an “All-American Glow” look for each model with the help of the Opal Sonic Infusion System. By the time the models went through hair, makeup and wardrobe, they were truly looking their best!
Harcourt also brought along the cute Blue Mia – the newest Mia color – for models and fashion press to check out. (To order your own Blue Mia click here.) But the biggest backstage surprise of the day came when the famous YouTube beauty blogger, Michelle Phan, stopped by the Clarisonic station and raved about how much she loved all the products!

Despite the early 7:45 a.m. call time on Sunday, models at the VPL show at New York Fashion Week – rarely known for their punctuality – were right on time to ensure they had a chance to get a Clarisonic facial from celebrity esthetician Eileen Harcourt.
A thorough cleansing is the first step in any skincare routine, and Harcourt says she wouldn’t even recommend applying moisturizer to the face unless it had a Sonic Cleansing first.
The look for the VPL show was “dewy and glowing,” and Harcourt noted that skin was considered an accessory. Makeup artists used little makeup on the models, so it was up to the Clarisonic team to make each model’s skin shine with Sonic Cleansing System and Opal Sonic Infusion System. Harcourt and her talented staff made sure each model had the fresh look the VPL designers desired.
