Just kidding! Despite the fact that it’s been about a month since the Barbie movie premiered, Barbiecore shows no signs of letting up. Our makeup bags, closets and manicures have been permanently altered by the titular doll and her all-pink aesthetic, and Selena Gomez isn’t immune to the charms of Barbie Land either.
Gomez, whose new song “Single Soon” is set to drop on August 25, gave fans a sneak peek at what could be her music video look via Instagram Stories, and it appears she’s thinking pink (and Y2K) for this new era of her music career. Her hair is pulled up in another throwback updo like the one she wore to ring in her 31st birthday, with tendrils pulled out on either side of her face. But the real standout is the matching baby pink lip gloss and matching nails, which give the look that extra pop of Barbie-style cheekiness and fun.
Let’s talk about the manicure first, shall we? Gomez’s nails are noticeably longer than her usual medium length but still shaped into her preferred squoval. They’re painted a sweet candy pink color to mimic the color of her lips and the pink bra under her crystal mesh halter top. Make space in the Dream House closet, Barbie! Gomez is moving in and bringing her nail polish with her. But wait a second — have we seen this polish before? It looks quite a bit like a pale pink hue that Gomez wore in July. Could she have been filming something special at that time? Maybe!
If this makeup-and-mani moment is any indication, “Single Soon” is going to be a delicious confection as only Gomez can do. Everything about her hair, makeup and manicure is so much fun, including the tousled updo, shimmery smoked-out eye and shiny pink lip. Gomez looks like she’s ready for the dance floor and TBH, I am too!
