We’re leaving today to spend Labor Day weekend with my brother-in-law’s family.  This is something I look forward to all summer.  We don’t see each other enough, but when we are there for a couple of days there is always excellent food, a good workout or two, some karaoke, a movie, and some general nerdiness.  While I won’t be belting out any tunes over the PS3 this weekend (thank you little cold that found its way to my home), I’m looking forward to extra help with my kids so I can jog every morning, possibly showing off my my badass crepe-making skills, and just having a good time.

We tend to stay very laid back on our stay-overs, so I rarely pack much in the way of makeup…just basics.  I have a couple extras this time because I love the cheek look I’ve been doing (someday the sun will be bright enough for FOTD shots).

I failed miserably at taking a sharp photo of what I’m bringing along for this weekend and have too much to do yet to care anymore.  But I wanted to show you what I’ll be using over the next three days.  I’m loving glowy cheeks and orange hues with the end of summer…or the beginning of fall…  Which is it?  Do you say good-bye to summer or kick off fall on Labor Day?

Truth be told, I don’t expect to wear anything on my lips, just the Fresh Sugar treatment. And my shadow will probably be a sweep of color.  But I will definitely load on mascara, bronzer and blush.

What colors are you sporting as summer comes to a close?
