Accompanying many of the bold fashions walking the Fall 2013 runways earlier this year was a distinct, almost subversive kind of makeup. The look was undone but well done, or, "I fell asleep with my makeup on and this is what it looked like when I woke up." Thankfully for all of us nonmodels, smudged, kohl-lined black eyes and berry-stained lips are very translatable into real life, and both are excellent ways of making over our Fall 2013 beauty routines.

1. Even out your complexion with a matte foundation to create a blank slate for your eyes and lips. Try Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation ($36).

2. To get a deep black eye, start with a black cream base like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline ($15). Using a black kohl pencil, smudge liner around the eye keeping things a little messy for a smoldering, smoky look. Try Avon Kohl Eye Liner in True Black ($7), which has a built-in smudger on the end. 

3. A volumizing mascara will complete the eyes. Try Lise Watier Dramatique Intense 3D Volume Mascara ($24) or Annabelle Le Big Show Mascara ($10).

4. For the lips, apply a berry lipstick and blot with a tissue to remove any glossiness. Try Annabelle Twist Up Lipstick in Vamp (inquire for US pricing), MAC Lipstick in Sweet Succulence ($15), or Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Racy Red ($8).
