BEAUTY BAR: Tough Femininity

September 28th, 2015 at 2:00am

In this day and age, the once taboo facial piercings are quickly gaining popularity. Lately, nose piercings are becoming especially prevalent among young females.  Piercings tend to have an edgier connotation, but they are now being made more feminine.  This Fashionista demonstrates this perfectly because she has achieved a balance between femininity and toughness.  Her intricate septum piercing not only makes her look tough, but sweet and delicate as well.

This Fashionista is wearing a white T-shirt, black pants and a denim jacket. Although her outfit is made up of basics, it is strong because of the added details.The subtleties in her outfit allow her septum jewelry to pop. Whether you are wearing a nose or not, it is always important to be weary of too many focal points in an outfit. A good fashionista/o knows how to edit in order to keep their outfit balanced.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: In order to achieve this Fashionista’s look, you can travel to your nearest piercer and have a lovely piece of metal inserted into your nose. However, if you are looking to avoid the pain and permanence, you can go the imitation route.  As septum rings continue to grow in popularity, the easier it is becoming to find one perfect for you and your style.  I would recommend starting your search online by exploring handmade art websites such as Etsy.com.  No matter where you find the jewelry that’s right for you, just remember: the more detailed the nose ring, the simpler you should keep your makeup. The focus should be on the septum. The combination of facial jewelry and too much makeup can overwhelm your face.
