Your 3 Best Beauty Essentials to an Amazing Memorial Holiday Weekend!

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of Summer, and that means it's time to break out your beauty essentials to keep your skin looking fresh, hydrated, glowing. Whether you're spending the long weekend at the beach, by the pool or just enjoying some outdoor activities, here are 5 must-have beauty essentials to keep you looking your best.

1. Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is crucial for maintaining a healthy complexion. Sunscreen should be a staple in your beauty routine, especially during the summer months. Look for a broad-spectrum Sunscreen with at least SPF 50, and DON'T FORGET TO REAPPLY every 2 hours, or immediately after swimming or sweating.

Below are some of my fav Sunscreens that I swear by for daily use that is amazing alone or underneath makeup!

  • Of course, I am going to start with WhereThouArtBeauty Luxury Skincare's own Water Essence Sunscreen SPF 50. I and many others swear by its daily use, not only is it light, its hydrating and moisturizes the skin, great for all skin types, protective of the skin of course and it DOES NOT LEAVE A WHITE CAST! It also has a cooling sensation that makes the skin feel refresh. Its a great facial sunscreen that truly protects your skin without it being greasy, heavy, tacky or even sticky and its non-messy with a twist nob that is super chic with a squeezable tube. 1.7oz Retail price $15.00

  • Next is Beauty of Josen, this sunscreen has sold out multiple times but it is such an amazing facial sunscreen, with an SPF 50, this sunscreen hydrates, moisturizes and leaves an amazing glow, but most importantly its probiotic. It's one of the best sunscreens on the market and is a staple for those who love Korean Skincare. I am such a big fan of Korean Skincare. It's a lightweight moisturizing cream made with Rice and grain fermented extracts that are rich in Vitamin B, C, E. Bonus: No WHITE CAST!!! You can find this directly on their website or, 1.69 fl. oz. Retails $18-30

  • Lastly, this one has been a staple in my skincare for years!!! I love it for the body and it is Hawaiian Tropic Weightless Hydration Clear Spray SPF 50. Its light weight, no white cast yet has great protection and so easy to use. More than anything its non-sticky, hydrating, its reef friendly and it smells amazing. I won't lie it can definitely be hard to find the SPF 50 because they sell out fast and have SPF 30 and 70 but SPF 50 is my go-to. You can find it at your local retail stores such as Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Walmart or just go to their website. They also have a ton of others but this one hands down amazing and reapplying is so easy it doesn't leave skin feeling icky or heavy!!! 6oz Retails for $10.99

2. Hydrating Face Mist

A hydrating face mist is perfect for refreshing and hydrating your skin throughout the day. It's also great for setting your makeup or just giving your skin a boost of hydration. Look for a mist that contains hydrating ingredients like aloe vera, rosewater or hyaluronic acid. Two of my fav mists of all time is YSL Nu Dewy Mist and Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray.

YSL Nu Dewy Mist is amazing because it is a super fine mist that has ingredients that include hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, and pomegranate oil to hydrate and plump skin. The mist is super fine super light but not heavy and skin is left with a nice dew. I have oily/combo skin and I love it. Some setting/hydrating mist makes your skin feel like you have a mask on but not this one! Great to wear with makeup or not! 3.3 oz Retails for $36.00 available at yslbeauty or

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray is my runner-up but still a main go-to. You will not be disappointed; it can be the hottest of hot days and your makeup will not melt and your skin stays hydrated and looks amazingly flawless! I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury; the makeup is definitely one of the top and best brands in my opinion and their setting spray is one of them. What makes it great is that the ingredients of aloe vera, Japanese green tea and aromatic resin keeps the skin hydrated, smooth and keeps the pores clear. It's great for every skin type!!! 100ml Retails for $38.00 available at Charlotte Tilbury,, or

3. Tinted Moisturizer

A lightweight tinted moisturizer is perfect for achieving a natural, glowing complexion. Look for a moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the Sun's harmful rays and choose a shade that matches your skin tone for a seamless finish. A tinted moisturizer is also great for minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines, while providing a touch of coverage.

When it is hot, the last thing you want is a heavier coverage of makeup, so one of my fav tinted moisturizers is by Chanel. It not only gives a beautiful glow to the skin, but it gives a soft coverage and keeps skin hydrated. Chanel Les Beiges Water-fresh tint is a light to medium coverage with a gel-texture and pigmented micro-droplets that gives a bare face healthy glow. The foundation is made of 75% water and has up to 8 hours of hydration. It's perfect for Summer, pricey but well worth it, it also comes with a little brush and a little goes a long way! Retail price $70 available at Chanel boutiques,, .

By incorporating these 3 beauty essentials into your Memorial Day weekend routine, you'll be sure to keep your skin looking fresh, hydrated, and glowing all weekend long. So grab your Sunscreen, Hydrating Face Mist, and Tinted Moisturizer, and get ready to enjoy a beautiful and fun-filled weekend!!!
