Instagram Trend Alert: The Fake Lip Ring Everyone Is Snapping

No one saw it coming, but it happened. Kim Kardashian has been donning a lip ring ever since 2017 started, and now, Instagrammers are taking it up a notch.

Kardashian has been spotted wearing the accessory to glamorous events like on the red carpet at the Family Equality Council’s Impact Awards, as well as low key days like driving around with her mom. Whether she’s dressed up or dressed down, the focal point effortlessly gives Kim an edgy style we are all dreaming of.

The popular look is just in time for music festival season, and we can guarantee it’ll be spotted all over Coachella. But there’s now a twist to the accessory. Makeup artists like Daisy Weigt are finding shiny chromatic liquid lipsticks and creating their own versions of a lip ring. Instead of pinching on a faux metal piercing or going through the real thing, trendsetters everywhere are drawing it on themselves.

While it sounds crazy, it actually works. From a distance, you would think someone is actually sporting Kim K’s look.  So how do they get it to look so real? They start with a bold color, then paint a chrome color center down the middle of their lips. It’s as fool-proof as it comes and avoids you from the pain of a needle – sounds like a win-win to us! Check out some of our favorite looks we found on IG from girls around the world.
