Pumpkin Spice Latte

Cozy up to the fall season with the trendy Pumpkin Spice Latte look

With the arrival of a cooler climate in the region, makeup trends are undergoing a shift. The emergence of the pumpkin spice latte look is certainly one to watch out for. This makeup trend, influenced by the beloved fall beverage, has become a prominent sensation on TikTok. 

Notably, the pumpkin spice latte look follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the latte makeup trend, characterized by sun-kissed cheeks and understated lip shades. This look dominated the beauty landscape on the platform during the summer months. With the arrival of cooler weather, content creators are now infusing their makeup routines with warm hues of rustic orange and rich cinnamon brown.

This shift is evidently gaining traction, as exemplified by the substantial 7.3 million views garnered under the hashtag #pumpkinspicemakeup. According to J. Guerra, a makeup artist based in New York City, this trend seamlessly transitions into a more autumnal colour palette, effectively capturing the season’s feel-good atmosphere.

If you’re finding it challenging to picture pumpkin spice latte makeup, think of it as a richer, autumn-appropriate monochromatic makeup style. With this approach, your eyeshadow and eyeliner harmonize with your bronzer and highlighter, creating a cohesive look that extends to your lips and beyond.

١. Base

Much like sipping on a pumpkin spice latte, the foundation of this makeup style revolves around warm and creamy coffee-inspired shades of brown. As a first step, Guerra recommends incorporating a small amount of gold or bronze liquid highlighter into your foundation to establish a luminous base. 

Our favoured product with this step is the Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops. Check it out here.

Following the application of your foundation and concealer, enhance your complexion further by applying bronzer along the contours of your face. We recommend Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer for this step. Check it out here.

After that, it’s advisable to lightly apply blush with orange undertones to the apples of your cheeks, imparting an additional touch of autumn charm to your makeup. The MERIT Beauty Flush Balm Cream Blush: Persimmon is a great tool for this step. Check it out here.

Regarding the eyes, Guerra advises blending a matte, subdued brown eyeshadow along your eye crease using a soft, fluffy eyeshadow brush. This step establishes the foundation for the warmer colour palette. Once you’ve established this base, layer on a matte burnt-orange shade across the entire eyelid. For an extra dimension, introduce a touch of shimmer with a golden, copper, or bronze shade at the centre of the eyelid. 

An excellent product choice for this step is the Huda Beauty Brown Obsessions. Check it out here.

٣. Lipstick

To finish the pumpkin spice latte look, glide on a lipstick or gloss that complements the overall aesthetic.

Our favourites for this step are the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Lip Pencil (Versatile Chestnut), the Rouge Artist Blur Finish Lipstick (Cheeky Chestnut), and the Maybelline Lifter Gloss Bronzed Lip Gloss (018, Bronze).
