  • Lights! Camera! Action!

    This year, Clarisonic was the official sponsor of Glamour Reel Moments. The Glamour Reel Moments program was established in 2004 to place more women in the director’s chair and bring Glamour reader’s stories to the big screen. Eva Longoria, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde join the other 19 A-list actresses who have pushed stereotypes aside and stepped behind the camera to direct a short filmed inspired by real-life stories.  We got the inside access and are bringing it to you, our fans!

    The three actresses discussed their directorial experiences on a panel during a luncheon hosted by Glamour and Clarisonic. The luncheon gave these new directors a platform to discuss the lack of female directors in the film industry; noting that only 7% of directors are women.

    All three ladies noted the difference of being an actress to being a director and in taking on their movie themes of empowerment, discussed these nuances candidly with the crowd of film and beauty bloggers.  Zoe noted that the experience was empowering and made her dream of directing a sci-fi film come true. Eva’s insight into her directorial debut showed that the actress liked the feeling of power of behind the camera best stating, “As an actor, you just hope they edit things right and make you look good. As a director, everything is in your hands. You become very insightful and sharp real quick!”

    When asked about why there is a lack of female made movies, Eva chimed in that the real project is to move the ball down the court. Olivia seconded that, by noting that someone has to be the first and Zoe noted that the pressure isn’t only on the industry but the audience – stating that people need to watch the movies women make for producers to want to make them.

    Eva, Zoe and Olivia all agree that women don’t have to lose their femininity to lead a film crew. They also agree women need to work with men and share the success with other women. But don’t think these women believe they can do it without their masculine counterparts;  Zoe rounded out the conversation of empowering women in film by beaming, “We need them! I love men.”

    As you can see in these photos; these beautiful and strong leading ladies are taking films into their own hands.

    Clarisonic and Glamour are proud to present these films to our fans and in the spirit of empowerment evident in these films, every film view will raise $1 for Look Good…Feel Better. Sit back, enjoy our films and let us know what you think! http://bit.ly/sfRVQK >Read More

  • Look Good…Feel Better Virtual Workshop

    Join our charitable partner, Look Good…Feel Better for its first-ever live, virtual workshop! Look Good…Feel Better realizes that some cancer patients may not be able to attend the program’s two-hour workshops that are normally hosted in hospitals and cancer treatment centers. The virtual workshops will provide most of the benefits, but for those who are unable to attend in person, this new format will enable a patient to participate from the comfort of her own home, office or favorite coffee shop via a live streaming webcast!

    The Look Good…Feel Better workshop will offer tips, advice and instruction on dealing with treatment related hair loss, changes in skin, complexion and nails during cancer treatment.  The workshop will be facilitated by two top-notch volunteer beauty professionals–one of whom is a national Look Good… Feel Better trainer!

    With a portion of proceeds from the sale of each designated PINK Clarisonic cleansing system going to Look Good…Feel Better, as well as fan participation in campaigns such as the Autographed Mia Auction and the Facebook Like Campaign, Clarisonic has raised more than $1 million for the program. Most recently, we received help from Clarisonic’s Empowered Woman of the Year, Mila Kunis, in presenting a check for $250,000 to Look Good…Feel Better! We want to thank all of our customers and fans who have helped make all of this possible.

    We encourage you to learn more about the organization and its work by sitting in on the virtual workshop and making sure to inform anyone you know who might benefit from the Look Good…Feel Better program. We’d love to hear your comments after you’ve seen the webcast!

    Virtual Workshop: Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, 12:00-2:00pm EDT. Webcast will be archived for future viewing.

    The following video will give you a preview of what’s in store for the first-ever  Look Good…Feel Better workshop!
