We’re psyched for fall but a little sad to see summer go, so to celebrate the unofficial last weekend of the season, we’re sharing three of our favorite beach beauty trends. Spotted on Pinterest, these gorgeous hairstyles and makeup looks have us relishing summer and all its beachy goodness. Head over to the bloggers’ sites to try these chic looks for yourself over Labor Day. (You can bet we will!)

Barely There Makeup via Gal Meets Glam

We adore blogger Julia’s pretty flower crown, although what we really love here is her natural makeup look. Her creamy skin, slight flush, and subtle glossy lips are perfection. Remember ladies: Less is always more.
