Five Labor Day Looks – Outfit/Makeup Combos

Ahhhh Labor Day – the mark of the end of summer. For some, such as students or corporate girlies who thoroughly enjoy their “summer Fridays,” this holiday may come with dread. But for some, this holiday may come with excitement. It means fall is here and there is a change to the season and the energy in the air. Schedules change, you fall back into a normal routine (pun intended), and you have new styles to dress for. To help ease the transition and help you look forward to this last holiday of the summer, we’ve put together a list of Labor Day outfits/makeup combos so you can end summer with a bang.

Labor Day at the Lake

Nothing seems more American than a day at the lake on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day. If you plan on getting in the water, opt for a cute swimsuit, an oversized hat and shades, and waterproof makeup with sun protection.

Keep your makeup simple with tinted moisturizer, a swipe of lip balm, and lots and lots of sunscreen! And don’t forget the waterproof mascara!

An Extra Day Abroad

Is it just me, or did your Instagram feed this summer feature tons of people enjoying an Italian summer abroad? If you are planning on ending summer with a trip to Europe of your own, make sure you are prepared with a cute yet comfy outfit for the many pictures you’re sure to take yourself.

Sneakers are a must for all the walking you are sure to do. But that doesn’t mean you have to pair them with athleisure. This silk dress paired with white sneakers and a cardigan or light blazer transitions from day to night seamlessly.

And for makeup? Try out a sun-kissed look, such as that shown in the tutorial video below.
