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.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

 Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
