Painless Piercings + Painted Jewelry Are Officially a Thing
Move over temporary tattoos, piercings are making a comeback. But don’t hit up the the Piercing Pagoda at your local mall just yet; these piercings are as fake as the woman with three boobs.
If you’ve got any extra hair rings handy, Rodarte’s pierced brow look is easy and painless. At the designers’ spring 2015 show, James Kaliardos for NARS paired a “beautiful, fresh face” with bad ass faux brow piercings. OK, so these may have been too over-the-top for the streets, but who’s to say you can’t tone it down and just attach one or two clip on rings to your arches?
Better yet, don’t buy any clip on jewelry at all. Today, at Dries Van Noten’s spring 2015 show in Paris, makeup artist Peter Philips drew a gold line down the center of the models lips using Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Liner in Diamond Gold, resembling a lip piercing.
This isn’t the first time cosmetics have been used to create faux jewels. A few years ago, nail artist Nonie Créme used polish to create midi-rings at Vena Cava’s Fall 2011 show. Fast forward to this week and you’ll notice painted on ear cuffs at Anthony Vaccarello’s Spring 2015 show in Paris. Instead of making a statement on the face, Tom Pecheaux painted models’ lobes with black liquid liner and glitter. Because diamond studs are so last season.
