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.

Touche... I feel alone as well... I hate myself... People bully me for the stupidest of reasons, and it never ends! It's the reason I came on here in the first place. To have people that I can consider friends with a straight face (I have a few of those in real life but I'm not exactly a social butterfly. Well, I hate myself even more when I have to lie about not having friends, saying I have heaps of them, when that would be 35... I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but hey, I just assume I offend everyone I talk to... which is why I don't talk much...

Ask your dad why he won't let you go. If it's cost then offer to pay for it yourself if he won't pay and you don't want your friend to pay. If you don't have enough money right now ask your dad if you can pay him back over time by doing extra chores or something. Also calmly explain that you really like the band and really would like to see them live. Is your friend's mom or dad going with you? That might affect his decision if he's worried about your safety.

Everytime I ask my dad for something, its no. Yesterday I asked if I could go to the 5sos concert, he said no, and I asked why. He said there was no one to take me. My friend offered to take me, since she is going. I asked for money for the ticket, and he asked how much it was. I said it was $24, and he said that is too much and that he just bought me a phone yesterday. (my phone was an update, IT WAS 99 CENTS!) My friend then offered to pay for my ticket, and I told her I couldnt let her do it, she has bought me too many things already. WHat d0 i do? How do I convince my parents? It will be my first concert.

You're pretty, you're beautiful in your own way. Um, I guess you should talk with teachers/adults about it and I know it'll be tough for you, but ignore what they say and just be you!
