If you want to be part of the mermaid world, you’re in luck. Like balletcore, this trend is also going nowhere. Infact, for Spring 2024, it gets both a downgrade and an upgrade. For skin, mermaidcore focuses on dewy, hydrated, glowing skin while for makeup, it’s all about the eyes. You can go literal mermaidcore with blues, greens, and purples or play up the trend with asymmetrical eyeshadows, like we saw at Anna Sui. For nails, Sandy Liang created bedazzled barnacles, by extending the mermaidcore look beyond the iridescent nail lacquer with perfectly placed sparkly jewels. We love. For hair, that wet, editorial look is an easy, less colorful approach, while still giving siren sexy. “Just before it drips is how far you could go for this seasons wet look, ultra wet, ultra slippery, ultra sleek, a near vinyl finish—the wetter the better,” states celebrity hairstylist Adam Reed, founder of Arkive Headcare.
