Memorial Day Weekend Beauty Bag Must-Haves

Memorial Day Weekend Beauty Bag Must-Haves

Since Memorial Day Weekend is the official start of summer, you won’t want to look anything but your best.  If you have weekend travel plans and the mere thought of packing all of your products into a single makeup bag is causing you stress, fear not.  We’re here to help.  What you need is simple: A few key multitasking products with staying power. After all, makeup that lasts from day-to-night is no easy feat.


Supergoop! Shine On Lip Screen SPF 50 ($22) not only protects your pucker, but also imparts a non-sticky yet high-gloss sheen.

To condition and treat while simultaneously taming a wild mane, look no further than Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil ($20).

For coverage that doesn’t require touch-ups, rely on Lancome Effarcernes Waterproof Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer ($31).  Better yet, you can count on it not to crease.

Don’t you dare resort to the sun to give your face some color – BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle ($27) can do it for you! Use it on cheeks, brow bones, and even lips.

Trish McEvoy Lash Curling Mascara ($31) is the only mascara I trust in the water and high-temps. The unique tubular formula doesn’t budge until you want it to, meaning its stronger than the good ole fashion waterproof formulas!

Instead of packing three different products, rely on CoverFX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment ($45) to conceal, treat, and control shine.

The last thing you want to pack in a small getaway bag is a full brush collection. Smashbox Telephoto 3-in-1 Face Brush ($41) adapts to different formulas and coverage preferences simply with a twist – genius!

Personally, I’ll be putting everything in this Tumi Travel Cosmetic Case ($125) – the various compartments keep you – and your beauty products – organized.
