Zadie Smith made news recently for limiting her teenage daughter to 15 minutes to put on makeup, arguing that there are more important things in life than spending an hour and a half on contour. She makes a good point, but there are times—like, say, when a hurricane is approaching and you anticipate having to entertain yourself sans electricity for 24-72 hours—that playing with makeup sounds like a truly genius way to pass the time. And voila, there's a slew of new shadow palettes fresh out for fall to inspire your creativity and bring out your inner beauty vlogger. You'll be the most glam storm survivor in town.
