Hollywood was feeling itself this past weekend, and we are so here for it. Though the breakout White Lotus star swapped the Italian sun for some L.A. shade, we couldn’t help but notice Fahy’s effervescent lit-from-within glow. To uncover her secret, we went straight to the source: the makeup artist. Turns out, her trick to more radiant skin is both a viral TikTok product and PureWow reader favorite.

Before applying a neutral lip, brown smokey eye and rust-toned blush, Fahy’s makeup artist, Emily Cheng, prepped the 32-year-old’s skin with Solwave’s Renew Complex Activating Serum before hitting it with the best-selling Solawave 4-in-1 Advance Skincare Wand with Red Light Therapy. After applying a thin layer of serum all over, Cheng “glided [the wand] over the entire face and then spent more time focusing on areas like smile lines.” She also mentions that the red-light therapy wand is “great [at calming] any inflammation or spots on the face prior to makeup application.”

Cheng is certainly onto something. Solawave’s pint-sized wand packs a potent punch, featuring microcurrent therapy, red light therapy, facial massage and therapeutic warmth, all in an easy-to-use, at-home, travel-friendly package. According to the brand, this high-tech cocktail of treatments can help clear blemishes (without using any harsh ingredients), reduce signs of aging, decrease the appearance of puffiness and boost radiance through LED lights and vibrating microcurrents that put your facial muscles to work. After testing the Solawave wand for a few weeks, one PureWow editor reported a noticeable “improvement in my problem areas—specifically between my eyebrows and under my eyes. Since using the SolaWave, my fine lines are less noticeable, and my dark circles are lightening up.”

Interested in giving it a go at home? Make sure you prep the face with an oil-free serum (Solawave’s in-line option includes hydrating ingredients like blue tansy, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid) to help boost results.

And if your skin comes out looking anything like Fahy’s, remember to thank us in the acceptance speech.
