Somehow, the beauty and tech gods seem to have merged. We already have our beloved unicorn emoji. And with a new update from Unicode launching in June, we’ll soon have mermaids (and a redhead, no less!).
That means two things: You can now thoroughly celebrate these new mermaid palettes on social media — and someone over at Unicode has got to be a beauty lover. Please, deliver this person a set of fishtail makeup brushes stat.
Unicode will release 69 new characters this summer, including more inclusive options, such as a woman in a hijab, as well as a breastfeeding emoji, because sometimes you actually do have your hands too full to use real words. There’s also, finally, a man with a beard emoji and the less-necessary-but-still-exciting male Tinkerbell emoji. Refinery29 reports that mythical creatures are a major theme in the upcoming rollout, which means we’re getting fairies, wizards, and elves along with with our magical mermaids.
There are also male and female vampires, zombies, the much-needed “I’m in the shower” emoji, genies, and rock climbers.
