Fall 2012 Makeup Colors & Trends

Autumn colors in fashion usually reflect the colors of autumn: orange and dark berry, brown and gold, faded green and yellow and this year's color story is no different. Check out what the top designers like Gucci, Stella McCartney and Burberry are featuring on the runways this Fall at New York's Fashion Week 2012.

Trend: Smoky Eyes

For eyes, we are seeing smoky greys and browns with dramatic sweeps of color on the lids. Lashes can be dark and long, or highlighted with electric, bright, afternoon-sky-colored blue. Eyeliner is either smoky grey or brown to match eyeshadow or dark black for a more dramatic nighttime look. Done well, it's dramatic and accents your eyes. Done not quite right and you could look like an early trick-or-treater or raccoon, so do a few test runs on your own at home before heading out with the new look. Better yet, head to the makeup counter at your local department store to get some tips on how to apply this look and the best colors to use.

Trend: Berry Lips

Cranberry and mulberry aren't just on the menu this season, they're also on the makeup counters. Lips are dark and berry-stained and often accompanied by very little other makeup. If you take on a dark berry lipstick, keep your eyes and cheeks neutral with just a little mascara or liner and a light coating of tinted moisturizer.

Trend: Electric Accents

The runways are loving the all-over natural look with one accent that's just over the top. Like the electric blue mascara shown in the gallery, bright blue eyeliner or super bright lipstick. This could look really dramatic, exciting or interesting, or it could just look wrong, so again, test your look in the mirror and ask a trusted friend for their honest opinion before heading outside.

Have Your Say

What's your favorite fall makeup style? Do you wear a lot of makeup, no makeup, just a little or makeup only on special occasions? What age do you think it's okay for kids to start wearing makeup. Do you think kids wear too much makeup at your school? We have so many questions -- we want your answers!

Break down her door, get all your stuff, smash a flower vase, trot out the door yelling "BYE FELICIA!" and don't forget the hair flip.  (: this is how I make friends and never lose any

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.
