  • Clarisonic Backstage at Amsale Bridal Fashion Show

    Clarisonic was a hit backstage again, this time at the Amsale Bridal Fashion Show. Nestled in the heart of New York’s famed Garment District, the show celebrated well-known Ethiopian bridal designer Amsale and her collections for Spring 2011. Clarisonic partnered with celebrity esthetician Eileen Harcourt to prep models with Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing and Opal Sonic Infusion systems, helping them achieve the “skin lit from within” look.

    Clean, fresh skin is a must for creating the ideal foundation for a perfect bridal look, and this show was no exception. While working on the models, Harcourt offered some tips for brides to be who want to “reveal their true beauty” on their special day:

    Start cleansing with Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System (face and body) and infusing with Opal Sonic Infusion System at least a month before the big day to see the best results.

    No bride is ever too young to use the Opal! It provides a smooth, lifted appearance and opens up tired eyes.

    Beauty doesn’t stop at the chin. Don’t forget to use the Clarisonic PLUS with Body Brush and the body polish on the neck, décolleté and arms, and then follow up with a moisturizer.

    Finally, for those brides traveling to their destination weddings: don’t forget to bring your skincare tools! The Clarisonic Mia and Opal fit easily in your carry-on bag.

    For the Amsale Bridal Fashion Show, Harcourt used the new Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System in Lavender on the face, neck and décolleté, and then she followed up with the Opal Sonic Infusion System around the eye area. The models were glowing and ready to walk down the aisle, er…runway!

  • Winter Fashion: The Little Silver Dress

    Move aside little black dress, silver is taking over this winter season.

From Katy Perry at the Grammy Nominations Concert to Carla Gugino at a recent movie premiere, silver dresses are giving these stars that snowflake glow.  Of course the look doesn’t have to be as full-blown as these celebs but the wide variety of sparkle to shine in silver dresses combined with a plethora of colors to accessorize the dress will surely give you a lot to work with.

    Will you part with the classic LBD this season and move on over to the little silver dress?

  • Fall Fashion: From best to worst – trends to avoid

    You’ve seen the fall fashion must have list, now we bring you five trends to avoid this fall. Based on the recommendations of the fashion experts at Huffington Post and Refinery 29 we recommend that you keep the following pieces out of your wardrobe:

    Unnecessary Fur – you know what they say about too much of a good thing. Stick to furry accents on your neck, torso and hands (at most)

    Pointy Kitten Heels – reminiscent of a bygone era, leave these looks to the fashion icons of the past

    Head to Toe Prints – as seen in the photo to the right; leave the matching prints for your pajamas

    Palazzo Pantaloons – a stunning visual as they come down the runway, these pants leave a lot to be desired in the real world

    Patchwork Knits – Pot holders, coasters and blankets can’t and shouldn’t double as clothing items

    Any other atrocious trends you recommend avoiding this fall? We’d love to add them to the list. If you have photos of even of these fashion failures, we’d love to see those too!

  • Clarisonic Backstage at New York Fashion Week: Chris Benz

    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!

  • Clarisonic Hits New York Fashion Week: Backstage at VPL

    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.
