The Sexiest Celebrity Septum Piercings

Pain is beauty, beauty is pain.

Cool trend alert: septum rings. Celebrities like Rihanna, Zoe Kravitz, and Ellie Goulding have been rocking septum piercings, which arguably look hot because the pain ratings for these are most likely off the charts. Pain is beauty, beauty is pain.

Whatever the allure, septum rings are having a major moment right now. If you want to look sexy, you should probably endure the pain and get a piercing. Or get a fake one. I won’t know the difference and probably no one else will, either.

Peep the gallery to see sexy celebrities looking sexy with their sexy septum piercings.

If you’re not ready to get your septum pierced (or maybe if you’re like me and you’re too squeamish to ever commit to it) we have another fall trend for you that’s totally pain-free: the dark lip. Classic red lips will never go out of style, but right now, it’s deep, dark lipstick that’s having a moment. Think burgundy, think purple, think deep, deep red.

Taraji P. Henson, Joseline Hernandez and Chrissy Teigen are among the celebrities who are popularizing the dark lip trend by sporting it on red carpets and even just Instagram thirst traps. It seems as though everyone is getting in on the look, including Drake—kinda. Tom Ford honored Drizzy with a lipstick shade as part of Tom’s second annual Lips & Boys Collection. In case you were wondering, your fave bearded rapper is a burgundy plum, a.k.a. the perfect fall shade. Would you sport that?

Keep in mind, though, that dark lipstick isn’t just fifty shades of red. If you’re not so into reddish hues, look no further than Rihanna for inspiration. The fashion icon and lipstick lover—remember when she wore blue?—boldly wore a black lip to celebrate the announcement of her eighth studio album, ANTI, in Los Angeles last month. Black lips scream that audacious, rebellious, IDGAF attitude that Rihanna so often exudes, and even if that isn’t necessarily your personality, you can reinvent yourself time and time again via lipstick shades.

If not red or black, try out a purple, brown or berry-colored lip this fall. Keep in mind that how the lipstick shade will look on you depends on the pigment of your lips. If you’re not sure how the color will turn out on you, always try it on, first. There’s no harm in testing and it will limit your chances of experience buyer’s remorse.
