California Wedding Day Spring/Summer 2023

Go all in and pair House of the Rozetree’s primer with its best-selling Bright Eyes under-eye highlighter ($36). This magic wand is a concealer and highlighter, and has a lightweight, silky texture that glides over the skin. The peach tone works with all skin types to counteract darkness under the eyes. In addition, it’s a great brightener to use on the brow bone and eyelids. And, if happy tears arise on your wedding day, the water-resistant formula will stay put.

California–based makeup artist Rhyan Townsend, owner of House of the Rozetree, worked with a cosmetic chemist to formulate American Glow Illuminating Primer for All ($42) specifically for brides requesting that “glowing-skin look.” To achieve this effect, Townsend developed this nutrient-rich, water-based primer, which is easily absorbed into the skin to create a perfect canvas for makeup application. Containing hyaluronic acid, American Glow controls oils, hydrates and gives skin that coveted dewy, pearlescent finish.

Achieve soft, illuminated skin with Abi Amé’s Summer Skin ($38–$52). This lightweight, vitamin-packed serum-lotion hybrid is the perfect antidote to body products that leave skin sticky and sweaty. Summer Skin glides on and is quickly absorbed, leaving skin silky smooth and luminous. 

Karuna Skin’s Goodnight Glow-To’s ($65) gives new meaning to the term “beauty sleep.” This bundle, featuring four of Karuna’s bestsellers, gives skin a rejuvenating wake-up call by using powerful ingredients including turmeric, niacinamide, aloe vera and peptides. This nighttime essential includes the nourishing overnight Sleeping Mask, the Multi-Tasking Face Oil to help calm and balance, Lights Out Cream to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and the skin plumping Age-Defying Face Mask. 

Solvasa’s 360° Radiance ($140) works from the inside and out by integrating the skin, body and mind. The collection features the Crystal Energy Wand, a multifunctional facial tool that releases tension, decreases the signs of inflammatory stress and increases micro-circulation; Destressance Serum, to help firm and brighten skin; and Golden Moment Turmeric Elixir, Solvasa’s version of the traditional ayurvedic golden milk. The dairy-free blend is infused with aromatic spices and adaptogens turmeric and ashwagandha to support your body’s resilience to stress and inflammation.

Founder Eunice Koo’s Korean heritage inspired her vegan cleansing balm, Melt Away Butter, by Yoonique Skin ($58). Its curated ingredients give a nod to her grandmother’s skin care routine, which included homemade treatments created from flowers and plants in her garden as well as natural oils, all working together to heal breakouts, hydrate and replenish. Infused with these ancient remedies, this one-step cleanser removes makeup, sunscreen, and daily dirt and grime, all while restoring moisture and leaving skin  ready for the next step.

After selling cult favorite Kiehl’s Since 1851 to L’Oreal, beauty visionary Jami Morse Heidegger and husband, Klaus have returned with the holistic skincare line Retrouvé. This powerful, gender-neutral pro-aging line is packed with carefully researched ingredients, such as avocado harvested from the family’s self-sustaining farm in Malibu, that work to enhance the skin’s natural process of nourishing, strengthening and repairing.  Opt for the exfoliating Skin Brilliance Priming Pads ($65) followed by the Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer ($380/30ml) to boost hydration and reveal radiant, glowing skin. Then give love to the rest of your skin with the luxurious Baume Ultime Body Oil ($240).
