“Gorpcore” was first coined and talked about by The Cuts Jason Chen in 2017 and has made its way back to the forefront of fashion as the most talked-about trend of 2022. The minimalist, utilitarian and functional movement has now made its way over into our everyday beauty routines.

For those who aren’t aware the name “gorp” is an acronym for “good ole’ raisins and peanuts,” inspired by what is called “camper-chic,” and it serves as a nod to the hiker street style aesthetic that gorpcore is encompassed of. Vests, cargo pants, bomber jackets, hiking boots and trainers are all key components of the trend. Popular bro brands such as The North Face, Patagonia, Salomon and Fear of God Essentials are some of the go-to places for people buying into the style.

What does this have to do with beauty? The gorpcore aesthetic for beauty is all about understated natural makeup. A fresh out-of-bed fresh face is what makes gorp beauty appealing. Your skin-but-better brands such as Glossier, Kosas and Freck are most likely where you may want to invest your money to achieve the look. We’d advise shopping brands that promote a unified complexion, natural-looking mascara and full, fluffy brows.

When it comes to hair styling, loose, natural texture takes the lead. Slicked back buns or ponytails and hair held up by claw clips are all acceptable when it comes to your personal interpretation of gorpcore tresses.

For more inspiration on the beauty front, we’ve rounded up a few Instagrams that adhere to what Gorpcore means. Check them out below.
