If you have been online at all the last month, there’s no doubt you have heard the term ‘latte makeup’. But, you might be wondering, what is this new trend and how can I achieve it? Well, we’re here to help. Centred solely on warm bronze, nude and milky coffee (duh) shades, latte makeup can be tweaked to suit all skin tones. From soft chestnut hued eyeshadow and eyeliner to soft nude-brown lips, the coffee-inspired trend can be incorporated into your whole makeup look and can even be achieved using products you might already have in your makeup bag. Here, we roundup our top products for achieving the viral latte makeup look (or, flat white makeup if you prefer less ‘foam’ in your beauty routine).
The Complexion Warm brown eyes and lips might be the focus, but that doesn’t mean we can forget the complexion. Latte makeup sits arguably on the more natural side of the makeup spectrum, so, a lightweight skin tint is the perfect in between. Our favourites include the Westman Atelier Vital Skincare Complexion Drops, the CHANEL Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint and the Ultra Violette Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil, if you want added SPF protection.
The Eyes For the eyes, you want to use your favourite warm brown-beige shadows to channel that creamy latte energy. An optional addition is to add a shimmer shadow for a more glowy look. A palette like the DIOR Backstage Eye Palette in Warm Neutrals gives us the perfect latte shades, or, you can try one of our favourite makeup hacks – use your bronzer as an eyeshadow. As for liners, one of our newest favourites is the MECCA MAX Zoom Liner in shades Chocolate or Espresso. To finish off the eye look, opt for your favourite long wearing mascara for natural fluffy lashes. Ours are the MCoBEauty XtendLash Mascara or the Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara.
