Soul eater lip design is believed to be invented by Kelseyanna Fitzpatrick. Kelseyanna is a talented makeup artist who works with Kat Von D Beauty Artistry and creates the most appealing and haunting pieces of art on her eyes and lips. One of the first pictures, featuring beautiful soul eater lips was spotted on her Instagram in September of 2016, but I believe I saw the smudged lips on runway shows and MUA editorials even before this date.

The whole concept of soul eater lips is to get an intentionally messy and blurred lip look. Just imagine, how would the lipstick on your lips look after a few minutes of passionate kisses? Well, the soul eater lip look is something similar to the “kissed lip’’, but less messy and more artistic.

Everyone who is tired of those perfectly defined lips will love to wear soul eater lips. We can finally abandon sharpened lip liners, concealers, and tiny synthetic brushes, who knows how to wield them anyways? We won't need either precision or accuracy for the dirty soul eater lip look and that's where the whole beauty of this makeup trend lies.

Wondering how to create a “blurred and stained’’ lip look and still have a tidy makeup look? Well, it is pretty easy and to be absolutely honest, it is so much fun! All you need for the looks is your favorite lipstick color, soft, blending brush, and a little bit of imagination. First of all, prepare your lips for makeup: gentle lip scrub and some moisturizer will make your lips smooth and ready. Use the desirable lipstick color: dark and bright statement colors look incredibly beautiful. Apply the lipstick all over your lips, smudging the shape with the help of a blending brush or finger. Reapply the lipstick to intensify the color in the inner part of your lips. Finish the soul eater look with the glossiest lip gloss in your collection.

How to make the soul eater wearable and daytime appropriate? This task is a little bit harder, but there is nothing impossible. Substitute dark lipstick color with something less bold and neutral. Brown nude and pink colors will work great for a daily look. By the way, the soul eater lip design is beginner-friendly, so you won't need a master's degree in SFX makeup to nail this look.

Overall, souls eater's lip look is one of my favorite makeup trends. It is a perfect rebel substitution of a boring well-defined lip look. Of course, it isn't for everyone, I doubt I will ever have enough courage to wear this lip design outside of my comfort zone, but who knows what tomorrow brings? The only thing I know for sure, smudged lips look great on girls with thinner lips, making them appear plumper. But what do you think? Let me know your opinion about this trend, I'm excited to read your comments and until next time!

Lots of love,
