We've said before that the end of August is like the Sunday Scaries of the seasons—the August Awfuls, so to speak. The end of summer is nostalgic and a bit of a bummer, no doubt about it. But what does help ease the transition into fall is the lineup of incredible end-of-summer beauty sales happening this Labor Day Weekend. Whip out your credit card, and get excited.
If any holiday is an excuse to get dressed up and drink, then it's also an excuse for our favorite makeup, skincare, and haircare brands (think Tatcha, Odacité, Jinsoon) to celebratorily knock down their prices. This year, the beauty Labor Day sales are fire. We got the firsthand scoop from brands and rounded up the ones we're most excited about here.
