20 Celebrity Memoirs to Take to the Beach This Summer

This is a safe space, so let’s admit it: we’ve all kind of wanted to read someone else’s diary before. You know, to get rumors cleared, tea spilled, or just to try to understand them a little bit better. Aside from people in my personal life (don’t act like you haven’t thought about it, too), a few celeb’s diaries are what I’d love to get my hands on. Not in a weird way, like to sell its contents to TMZ or pass any kind of judgment, but simply to get to know a more realistic version of these people that we talk about non-stop but know so little about. Well, lucky for us, celebrity memoirs do just that. 


Whether it’s a deep dive into their personal life and upbringing, obstacles they’ve faced, juicy tell-alls of Hollywood drama, or anything in between, celebrity memoirs are packed to the brim with content that’ll keep you sucked in just as much as a good mystery or true crime read. It feels like every celeb and their mom has written one at this point, so we’ve gathered some top-tier picks to help narrow down the search. With summer finally, here, you won’t be short of any 10/10 beach reads to enjoy this season. Here are 20 celebrity memoirs you need to add to your reading list ASAP:

Before losing his mother, Prince Harry was known as the carefree one, the happy-go-lucky Spare to the more serious Heir. However, grief changed everything. He struggled at school, experienced anger and loneliness, and because he blamed the press for his mother’s death, he struggled to accept life in the spotlight. He went on to find discipline and peace in his life, but he still struggled to find love—until he met Meghan. The world was swept away by the couple’s cinematic romance, but from the beginning, Harry and Meghan were preyed upon by the press, subjected to waves of abuse, racism, and lies. Watching his wife suffer, their safety and mental health were at risk, so Harry saw no other way to prevent the tragedy of history repeating itself but to flee the Royal Family. For the first time, Prince Harry tells his own story, chronicling his journey with raw, unflinching honesty and diving into a life of love over grief and power.

Tips for Evening Out Your Skin Tone — Plus, Our Fave Foundations and Concealers

Some days may call for a bright, statement-making lip or graphic eyeliner, but on other days, we’re all about letting our skin take center stage. No matter the condition your skin is in, there are ways to even out your skin tone with makeup and get a soft, satin skin finish. Below, we reached out to celebrity makeup artist Dean Fournier, who’s ready to divulge his best tips for achieving flawless, even skin. The best part? You can master the steps in less than 10 minutes.


What Is Uneven Skin Tone?

An uneven skin tone is characterized by varying colors and pigmentation on the skin. Everyone has some degree of unevenness on the skin — after all, nobody’s skin is just one single color all over. An uneven skin tone can show up in the form of redness, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and even an uneven sunburn or suntan. An uneven skin tone is different from an uneven skin texture, which typically comes from breakouts, bumps, enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. 


What Causes an Uneven Skin Tone?

As mentioned before, an uneven skin tone can come about due to discoloration, redness, sunburns, and/or hyperpigmentation. These can be influenced by a variety of factors, including but not limited to genetics, excess sun exposure, and fluctuations in hormones. If you’re concerned about having an uneven skin tone, we always recommend checking with a board-certified dermatologist to help determine the root cause and figure out a treatment plan. Protecting your skin from the sun by wearing a broad-spectrum SPF every day (which we recommend everyone doing anyways) and practicing sun-safe measures such as wearing protective accessories can help minimize and prevent an uneven-looking skin tone. 


How to Even Out Your Skin Tone

Step 1: Start With Primer

L'Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Dullness Reducer

“In order to speed up your complexion perfection, don’t skip primer,” says Fournier. “A good primer will help smooth out your skin and allow makeup to glide on and blend easier and faster, not to mention last all day.” To even out your skin tone, Fournier recommends opting for a color-correcting primer, which can target specific concerns of discoloration. If minimizing the look of redness is your top priority, look for a primer with a green tint to it, such as the L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Redness Eraser. If you have a tan to deep skin tone and you struggle with dark spots and hyperpigmentation, look for a primer with an orange or peachy tint — we like the L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Dullness Reducer

Step 2: Apply Foundation

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation

“Next, apply a sheer-to-medium-coverage foundation,” says Fournier. “Blend out with your fingers, then pat it in from your hairline to your jawline. This presses the product into your skin and gives you the most natural finish.” If you have extra time on your hands to blend and desire a fuller-coverage look, you can opt for a full-coverage foundation instead. For a medium-coverage foundation, you can’t go wrong with the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation, or the Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation if you’re looking for a drugstore option. If you prefer a full-coverage foundation, we recommend the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation or the NYX Professional Makeup Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation.

Step 4: Dust on Setting Powder to Finish

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Finishing Powder

Looking to cover blemishes? “A quick dusting of a powder is an important last step to help even out skin texture around any bumps,” says Fournier. Lightly dust on the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Finishing Powder as a final touch to help you get an airbrushed finish.

If You Have Black or Brown Skin, Estheticians Say Your Moisturizer Needs *This*

I’ve struggled with dark spots for as long as I can remember. If you’re Black or Brown and acne-prone, you probably feel my pain. It wasn’t until I started adding the right ingredients to my skincare routine that I started to notice a significant and lasting improvement. I learned that there’s one key product that can make or break your routine—your moisturizer. If it doesn’t have the right ingredients for melanated skin—well, let’s just say you could be hurting rather than helping your skin goals. Luckily though, I have estheticians on speed dial who are willing to give some sound advice on the matter. Below, I’m breaking down what to look for in a moisturizer if you have Black or Brown skin and the best ones to buy. Keep on scrolling.


“Black and Brown skin can be more prone to certain skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone,” says esthetician and Klur founder Lesley Thornton. “Look for ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin C, or licorice extract, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, and non-aggressive acids that can exfoliate the skin without stripping or irritating.”

“Moisturizers should contain ingredients that provide and retain hydration in the skin with emollients and occlusives to help create a barrier on the skin’s surface, preventing moisture loss. Look for non-comedogenic formulas to avoid clogged pores and breakouts—these formulations are less likely to cause acne or worsen existing skin issues. Sun protection against harmful UV rays is also crucial for maintaining healthy skin. Look for moisturizers that contain broad-spectrum SPF to shield your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Aim for SPF 30 or higher.”

Thornton’s top moisturizer pick for Black and Brown skin is below, along with a few of our favorites.
