We're here to help you send the season off with the bang it deserves, while still looking impeccably gorgeous. Here are the beauty essentials you need to make the most of the bittersweet weekend in the most beautiful way possible.

Perfecting Primer 

Yes, we probably say this way too many times but really prepping you skin is key to flawless makeup. Using a primer with SPF protection will be your best friend this Labor Day weekend.

Tinted Moisturizer 

You Labor Day weekend will probably consist of sitting out in the sun. The last thing you want is a full coverage foundation to eat away at your pores. Instead we recommend a nice tinted moisturizer to even out any dark spots and imperfections while still allowing you to sweat and stay in beauty tact.

Bold, Bright Lips

If you didn't have time this summer to have some lip fun, you must do it this weekend. Swipe on a lipstick in an electric color before fall comes out with the sultry palettes. Go with a non-sticky formula or your hair will have fun sticking to it all day long.

Waterproof Mascara

Stay with the theme and keep your makeup to a minimum. When it comes to mascara, we always recommend going with a regular formula first to protect your eyelashes and then layer a waterproof formula on top to seal it in. Waterproof formulas tend to be very drying and when applied directly to your lashes, they tend to make your lashes brittle.

Face Oil

After-sun care is just as important as the prep work you do. Rejuvenating your skin with a good face oil will bring back that youthful, luminous glow and keep your skin hydrated.
