Thanks to 2020, our lives completely changed but it also brought us some nostalgic trends. One such trend we’ve been loving lately is – Cottage Core. If you don’t know what the trend is all about yet, we’re here to tell you. The trend is basically defined as
“A concept which embraces a simpler, sustainable existence that is more harmonious with nature. Aesthetically, it’s a nod to the traditional English countryside style, romantic and nostalgic”
says Davina Ogilvie – Founder & CEO of Wovn Home, New York. The cottage core trend can be best summed as ‘your grandma, but like, hip’. It is centered around living on a farm, where you run across a lavender field under the sun wearing a flowy floral print dress with a hat on your head and a cute little diary in one hand as some calm music plays in the background. It’s a typical scene out of a vintage summer fairytale.
As the concept is simple, nostalgic, historic, and romantic, so is the make-up that goes with it. Make-up that feels light, glowy, and natural-looking is all we want with our Prairie dresses, peasant blouses, checked prints and tops with empire waists.
Below are a few make-up items that we think would be perfect for your cottage core wardrobe.
Here are 7 make-up products that would go hand-in-hand with your cottage core outfits.
If you are looking for a mascara that creates an illusion of longer and fluffy lashes Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara is perfect for you. This mascara has technology where it won’t clump, flake or smudge making it a great match for a minimalistic look.
Cloud paint by Glossier is the ideal cream blush for our cottage core looks. It is a seamless, buildable gel-cream blush that’s enjoyable to apply and easy to wear. It comes in 8 different shades which we feel is perfect and gives us more options to work with.
Highlighter completes any look with elegance. A simple touch of Rare Beauty highlighter can make our skin look silky, second-skin liquid highlighter creates a lasting, soft, and luminous finish, making it a sheer match for a minimal look.
4. Brow Gel
If there is anything you need to include in your cottage core look it has to be a flawless brow gel. Defined and full brows make our faces look brighter and fresh. Boy brow by Glossier is a brushable, creamy wax that visibly thickens, shapes, and grooms brows into place making it an ideal match for our daily looks.
5. Lip balm
This Iris&Romeo lip balm gives a plumping effect and hydrating treatment along with buildable color. It adds the prettiest and glowiest tint on our lips. Also, it boosts our collagen and is vegan.
Trying to get that perfect supercharged make-up look? Try Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer. It adds more moisture to your skin and will make sure that your cute cottage core beauty look stays on for the whole day.
7. Eye Brightener
If there’s one thing we need to complete our look it’s eye brightener. What looks better than wide and awake eyes, right? Brilliant Eye Brightener by thrive is a cream-to-powder highlighter that brightens and opens the eyes, providing an instant eye lift or shimmering smokey eye.
