Hairstyles

The main rule of cottagecore hairstyles is to make them natural and simple. Here are our favorite ideas:

  • Low ponytail tied with a ribbon – an everyday hairstyle can become special if you simply add a ribbon to it (just think about some Disney princesses)! However, it might be hard to keep the ponytail up with just a ribbon, so it’s better to use a hair tie as a base.
  • French braid – braids are a big element of cottagecore since they were very popular in past decades. You can also add some baby breath flowers to make it more elegant and to embrace nature.
  • Natural coils with a scarf – you don’t need to make a braid or a ponytail – just let your curls or waves loose! Tie a cute cottagecore scarf around, and you have the cutest hairstyle already!

Makeup

Cottagecore look presupposes natural elements. Don’t use too much makeup – embrace your natural beauty! Here’s what we recommend for a light cottagecore makeup:

  • a bit of mascara
  • light brow makeup matching your hair color
  • lipstick in light shades of pink or red
  • well-noticeable blush on your cheeks and nose
  • highlighted cheekbones, nose tip, philtrum, and area above the brows
  • eyeshadow in pastel colors

From a great many of various accessories, here are our favorites:

  • floral hair bands
  • head scarves
  • vintage rings
  • light necklaces with natural, floral, or space-themed pendants
