Fall often means more dramatic makeup looks, but if you’re not sure how to switch from bare summer skin to autumnal dark eyes and lips, check out these simple tips that can help you create a slightly more polished look.

Matte Eyeshadow

Try a matte eyeshadow in a warm tone that suits your skin tone—perhaps a light caramel, a warm copper, or even a sulty grey. Swipe it over your eye (no need to blend), add some eyeliner if you wish, and layer up the mascara.

Tame the Brows

A simple lick of eyebrow gel will keep your brows looking more structured and neat. If the gel is tinted, it will also add a touch of drama and intensity to your look, and can also look great when paired with a darker eyeshadow or lip tint.

Consider Some Concealer

As tans fade and we return to work, you may notice undereye shadows (and other blemishes) becoming more obvious than they were during the sunny days of summer. A simple slick of concealer can make you look more awake and ready for the day, so why not add this simple step to your morning routine?
