Some celebs are rocking the blunt bang trend.

There are many wearable celebrity and runway inspired trends you can borrow this fall. Like your best friend's sweater and boots you snagged from her closet, you'll wear them well. Be aware of which ones to skip, too! Most of these celebrity fall trends focus on the eyes.

Geometric and graphic eyes - Just when you thought eyes couldn't get any bolder, here comes the graphic liner. Visible "liner" wings are a signature look for "Jerseylicious Girls." This dramatic look is making it's way to daytime for fall 2012. Even blondes like Ashley Benson ("Pretty Little Liars") are embracing the lined eyes look. It works for Benson because she kept the rest of her face simple and pretty with peachy tones and lip gloss. Dakota Fanning also showed off dark lined eyes at New York Fashion Week 2012.

Smoky eyes see light of day

- You may already have some dark black shadow for nighttime looks. You can use it for daytime in the fall, especially when the shadow has some shimmer. Kardashian mama Kris Jenner has been sporting this look around the clock for years.

Shades of black

- Black for eyes is the cat's meow this fall. In contrast to the precise lines achieved with liquid liners, smudgy black liner is also in for fall.

Let's be blunt - Edgy bangs are not for everyone. Even celebs like Jessica Biel may not convince the masses that heavy bangs are the way to go. When she debuted her blunt bangs early in 2012, not everyone was a fan. Biel could shave her locks and still be gorgeous, so what's the problem with big bangs? The look was popular on the runway at New York Fashion Week 2012. Celebs who love their bangs include Katy Perry, Emma Roberts, and the quirky Zoey Deschanel.

Try it today: If you want an instant way to transform your look for fall and your face is oval or long you can wear heavy, blunt bangs.

Monochromatic - In order to pull off the overly-dramatic eyes or lips for fall, think in monochrome palettes. Stick with mauves and plums, peaches, or lightly bronzed hues when applying shadow to lined eyes and blush. Pair nearly nude lips with dramatic eyes.

Mauves and purples - It's not all doom and gloom this fall. Blue-eyed gals like Carly Rae Jepsen wear the smoky eye look with the help of navy liner, and gray and purple eye shadow. Look for silver shadows, lavenders and other cool hues.

Deeply colored stained lips - There are three shades of lipstick you need this fall: wine, red and berry. You can find a shade of each that matches your skin tone and pull off the most kissable look for Fall 2012. Complete the look with neutral eye colors when wearing a bold lip color. Here are three looks to try:

* Movie star red lips - Gwen Stefani is the pop star of this 1950s-inspired look. Another Marilyn Monroe fan, Madonna has also perfected the look. It's been borrowed by everyone from Petra Nemcova at New York Fashion Week to reality TV stars Kenley Collins ("Project Runway") and Monti Carlo ("Master Chef.")

* Berry good - From bright raspberries to crushed cranberries, berry tones are in this fall.

* Drink a good burgundy

- Wine hues, particularly burgundy stand up against black-lined eyes. Bordeaux is also in.

Fall 2012 Make Up Trends to Skip

Some looks are best left to pop stars and models. Unless you're going to a costume party or want to get stares for all the wrong reasons, skip these fall 2012 make up trends.

Bejeweled eyebrows - You could see this look on Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry. Eyebrows covered in jewels, sequins and other appliques could make you look like a kid who got her hands on mom's craft glue gun and her sewing kit.

Better: Opt for clean, manicured brows and a good eyebrow shadow brush.

Gold liner and shadow - Unless you can pull off this look with your coloring, stay away. The yellow tones of the gold eye shadows don't compliment every skin tone.
