With summer quickly coming to a close, it means that Labor Day is right around the corner. While this year’s long weekend may not involve the typical backyard BBQs and poolside parties, there’s still one thing to look forward to: Labor Day beauty sales. Every year, the end-of-summer holiday brings about major markdowns on some of the most buzzworthy beauty buys—from makeup to fragrance. 

Though Labor Day is a few days away, many brands have already kicked off their sales. One sale we’re especially excited to shop is Ulta Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty Steals. From August 30 to September 19, you can score up to 50% on cult-favorites like Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Mario Badescu. The best part? You can even swatch products before you buy with GLAMlab, Ulta Beauty’s virtual product try-on, which is free to use in the Ulta Beauty app!

In addition to Ulta Beauty’s three-week bargains, we’ve rounded up all of the best beauty deals on the internet. Keep scrolling to see the 54 best Labor Day beauty sales (yes, 54) from brands like INH, Stila Cosmetics, and Cover FX.
