In the summer, I prefer natural makeup where I can be out the door in under five minutes—after all, most of it melts off in the 100° F days we had this year—but as soon as it's fall, I tend to drift towards a little bit more of a dramatic makeup look. By adding a few simple touches—like eyeliner and some light contouring—I'm able to transition my makeup, along with my wardrobe, into a palette more appropriate for fall. Here's what my makeup routine looks like this season:
