R&B singer/songwriter – ESNAVI celebrated the release of her newest beauty campaign with Alison Raffaele Cosmetics (ARC) on September 25, 2012 at the contemporary MarX Restaurant located in Midtown Manhattan, located at 208 East 58th Street. As the 1st African-American face endorsing the brand, ESNAVI introduced music, fashion, and beauty fanatics to “Skintone 7” – ARC’s reality based True Concealer. As part of the presentation, guests were delighted by a 20 minute performance from the vivacious singer, makeup tips and samples by ARC, nail polish by Dazzle Dry, pastries from Delightful Cake Kreation and cocktails courtesy of 1800 Coconut Tequila.
Esnavi has quickly become an independent powerhouse in a short amount of time. Although new to the mainstream, Esnavi has been on her mission for years. As a very young child, her performing and writing skills were cultivated and now the industry has taken notice of this rising star. With the release of her highly acclaimed album, Exit E, Esnavi is taking her career to the next level.
She has performed at ESSENCE Music Festival during a live broadcast on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, headlined in front of a sold out crowd at Apollo Music Café, performed on Good Day New York morning show on FOX 5 NEWS, sang The National Anthem at the IZOD Center for the Harlem Globetrotters World Tour, performed at BAMcafé Live (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and has secured a music licensing deal with H&M, Old Navy, Abercrombie & Fitch, Nine West, Ann Taylor and Arden B stores worldwide.
As her most recent accomplishment, Esnavi is making history as the first African-American face for Alison Raffaele Cosmetics beauty campaign, a cosmetics line that will be carried in all Duane Reade stores nationwide, which launched in Puerto Rico in May, and will launch in New York City this Fall.
“Launched in 2008, Alison Raffaele Cosmetics is the first brand to blend high performance, easy-to-use cosmetics with eco-friendly, treatment-oriented formulations.” The foundation upon which the brand was built is that a woman’s true beauty comes from within and it’s through the pursuit of those dreams that encourages beauty to shine through. ESNAVI truly exemplifies what is means to “Live Beautiful”.
