The simplest thing to do to understand what Fairycore means is to do a little research on fairies. Fairies, who lead a life respectful to nature, are almost a part of it and dance in great harmony with mother nature. As they float around in all their beauty, the goodness and love within them are scattered everywhere. All their possessions and actions are always magical and healing in a way.

Is Cottagecore and Fairycore the same?

We realize that many people find it difficult to find the differences between cottagecore and fairycore. Yes, you are right, they are both very similar aesthetics, but there is a very obvious difference to distinguish the two from each other. While Cottagecore are the nature-loving vintage folks in our world, Fairycore are magical fairies living in the woods, maybe in a parallel universe. As they both lead lives in harmony with nature, of course, their clothes can be similar. At this point, you can assume you're lucky. Thanks to the different aesthetic styles that are similar to each other, you have more clothing alternatives and you can use your own creativity to make a distinction. In summary, for fairycore, you can make your appearance compatible with faecore aesthetics by adding a mystical air to all your attitudes and outfits.

What to wear for a Fairycore?

Although there are many different fairy styles, we can say natural fairies and extraordinary fairies if we separate them under two main headings. As you can understand from their names, natural fairies are fair hair with little make-up, no manicured and barefoot, while the fairies we call extraordinary are fairies with huge buns, dark make-up and fluffy dresses. It's just that these two species live in a special harmony with nature no matter what.


In fact, your options are not as limited as you might think. Of course, with the predominance of pastel colors; You have many options such as mini skirts, crop tops, bodycon dresses. You can do this with natural earth tones or you can do this by using other pastel tones such as striking green, pink and yellow in nature. You can also opt for floral or mushroom patterns, puff sleeves and midi-length skirts and dresses used in cottagecore aesthetics. Transparent blouses in patel tones, flare long sleeve blouses will be the savior in many combinations. You can get a more mystical look by choosing some of your aesthetic clothes from light glitter or silvery ones.

You can get a full fairywave effect by choosing fairy wings and magic wands rather than accessories such as bags and shoes. If you're going to be a fairy, you don't need to carry a bag with you. If you are not comfortable with barefoot, you can complete your combination by wearing flip flops or sandals.

How to adapt the Fairycore style to your daily life?

Today, although everyone can dress and live freely as they want, you may not always be able to experience cosplay styles such as fairycore. At school, at work, at some different events, there are rules that we have to follow, sometimes by sacrificing our own pleasure.

After you do your hair and makeup, you can go out and get things done in a mini denim skirt and a mushroom-print crop top. And when it comes to fairycore, you can edit the photos you take in an environment such as a tree, park, or forest with some apps and carry your fairycore love to your social media accounts such as instagram, pinterest, tumblr. All you have to do is play with the colors of the photo and add some sparkle with a little polaroid effect. Maybe it's to make your photo ready to share by adding a wing and tiny magic wand. 

How do you do Fairycore makeup?

Multiple Fairycore Aesthetic Makeup Inspiration

There are several different styles for Fairy Makeup. It is possible to divide it into three: plain, remarkable and exaggerated. You can make a very simple make-up with a light skin make-up, lots of highlight and swept eyebrows. Adding tiny details will personalize your makeup. It can be considered to make fake freckles or to draw colored thin eyeliner. A more multi-colored make-up should be preferred as a striking make-up style, maybe you can make it more unusual by adding a little sparkle. Exaggerated make-up, on the other hand, is a make-up consisting of a full-coverage foundation, intense eyeshadow, contours and highlights, unique false eyelashes, permanent spirit and lip glosses.

No matter which make-up style you choose, the make-up you will apply with the right methods will be good for you and will be one of the most important steps of your faecore aesthetic appearance.
