Happy Labor Day weekend to all my US readers!   Anyone have big plans?  I spent all day Friday babysitting my cutiepie (great) niece and nephew.  It’s been so many years since I’ve babysat a 3 year old and a 4 month old that I’m exhausted!   I think I’ll spend my weekend celebrating the unofficial opening of fall weekend resting and taking in some great beauty around the web.   Here are some of my favorite beauty and fashion blogs – enjoy!

Gaia took a short break from gorgeous new fall colors (and her incomparable fragrance reviews) to write about a concealer she loves. Gaia knows that we need to prepare our complexions for our beautiful new makeup. She shared her application tips at The Non-Blonde. While you’re there, read about “naked lashes.” Does this fall-winter trend have legs…or eyes?

Charlestongirl wrote a love letter to Edward Bess at Best Things in Beauty. Edward creates makeup with a sense of place, and his irresistible fall colors for cheeks are inspired – and inspiring.

Remember the old days of our “it” items and one of them being the Gunny Bracelets?   The Budget Fashionista shows us what’s old is new again. 

Anne is celebrating fall beauty with Shiseido! Check out BeautyXposé for a fab feature on Shiseido’s stunning fall collection from Dick Page. Who could resist those eye shadows?

Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup is hard to find. See what Sabrina selected (with help from Nikki at Saks Houston) from the fall collection at The Beauty Look Book. Don’t you love it when you find a great phone friend to help you select the perfect shades? You have to stop by to see Sabrina’s selections.

Kelly has been showing us the best of summer at Gouldylox Reviews. Both of her favorite discoveries for cheeks will take you right into fall! See if you can read about H2 Glow Natural Highlighter Cream without placing an order.

M∙A∙C’s new Fabulous Felines Collection for fall has been a blogger darling for weeks, particularly among cat lovers. Get the full scoop on the Superslick Liquid Eye Liners from Marcia at Beauty Info Zone Blog.

Super-shopper Laurie at Product Girl found a darling Clinique gift with purchase at Bloomingdale’s. Clinique has some great looks for fall, including new shades of Vitamin C Lip Smoothies. Why not get a gift when you pick up your favorites? The GWP includes an Allure favorite paring for fall – pink and chocolate.

How are we going to organize all our new purchases? Our pro, Vicki, let us in on her new “secret” at Makeup Artist Backstage.

Heather from 365 Days of Style asked several of us “What does style mean to you?”  Check out the fun and different answers!
