8 Memorial Day Must-Haves From Online Beauty Editors And Bloggers

In honor of Memorial Day Weekend, we thought it would be fun to ask some of our favorite online beauty editors and bloggers their one must-have product for the holiday. After all, it’sthe first real weekend of summer, which means we’re changing up our beauty regimens just in time for some extra-warm temperatures—let the frolicking begin! Here’s what they had to say:


Annie Tomlin, Beauty Director at Refinery 29

"I’m a big fan of does-it-all products, so I’m packing rms beauty’s Living Luminizer. It gives skin a soft, sheer shimmer and works as a highlighter on eyes, cheeks, the Cupid’s bow of the lips, and anywhere else. Easy!”


Lara Eurdolian, Founder and Blogger of Pretty Connected

"SPF, SPF, SPF! That’s my ultimate must have for Memorial Day Weekend (and everyday). Head-to-toe you can be sure I’m sporting an abundance of SPF products on and off the beach. From my makeup case to my beach bag, I’m usually carrying a combination of body sprays, foundations, moisturizers, and lip balms containing SPF. My favorite for everyday is Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50. It’s super lightweight, goes on smooth and offers great protection.”


Taryn Multack, Founder and Blogger of Miss Ladyfinger

"I’ll be taking Redken’s All Soft Argan-6 Oil for my hair. Finger’s crossed that it’s warm enough to swim, I’ll be applying this to my hair to keep it hydrated and to protect it from getting damaged.”


Rachel Adler, Beauty Director at Beauty High

For Memorial Day, I’ll definitely be packing my Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer to keep my ‘stressed skin’ in check. This miracle moisturizer actually helps to your overall skin’s appearance (i.e. minimizes redness, puffy under eye skin and even large pores) and I don’t like to go without it—especially on a crazy family reunion weekend!”


Grace Atwood, Founder and Blogger of Stripes & Sequins

This lavender Lulu Organics hair powder is my latest addiction. I love that it’s all natural and talc-free. It smells like heaven, sops up any oil, and adds just the right amount of beachy texture. I’m not big on washing my hair (especially as it means packing so many more products) so bringing a little of this along will get me through the weekend.”


Phillip Picardi, Beauty Editor at Lifestyle Mirror

One thing I absolutely cannot stand about the heat is runny makeup, especially because what I wear (face colors and cream cheek/eye colors) are always the first things to slip. Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum is the only product I’ve ever used that makes your makeup last all day long. It’s an oil-based serum (ultra-hydrating) with 14 essential oils, 10 plant oils, and four vitamins (equals 28!) that truly acts like makeup glue. It basically converts my tinted moisturizer into a long-wear, dewy foundation, so I can keep glowing and going.”


Annie Dean, Founder and Blogger of

NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Dragon Girl will be the perfect bright accent to my white-jeans Memorial Day uniform. The color never comes off, so I’ll be eating burgers and corn on the cob without any touch ups!”


Amber Katz, Founder and Blogger of Beauty Blogging Junkie

"My must-have is Tata Harper’s Lip Treatment in Be Adored—it’s perfect for the beach and gives you that ‘I’m naturally gorgeous’ effect, thanks to its plummy red sheer hue plus hydration. I dab it on cheeks as well for a fancy flush sans sun (SPF 50+ at all times, obvious.”


Hands down, our must-have for the holiday is something with serious SPF. Learn the dos and don’t of sunscreen here.
