The one Latte you can’t drink.

Beauty Tok is the gift that keeps on giving. This special corner of the internet has birthed all the recent trends we are witnessing in beauty today. As we emerge from its haze of fruit-inspired make-up looks and other short-lived fascinations, one trend seems to be outliving Tik Tok’s short life span sentence. Enter The Latte Make-up. What is it, you ask?

Simply put, latte makeup only uses neutral tones, similar to those deep shades of brown and beige in your milk coffee. Its immense popularity is not just due to its perfect nickname but mainly to its accessibility; It’s a simple look to achieve, and we will guide you through it.

Step ١ | Light Coverage Foundation

The Latte look is essentially minimalist and dewy. The foundation you use should enhance your skin and not completely cover it.

We like Armani Beauty’s Luminous Silk Foundation. Shop here.

Step ٢ | Spot Concealer

Another key to having the latte look base is to avoid excessive use of concealer and only use a strategic amount on the under eyes area and any blemishes or spots you’d like to cover.

We like Tarte’s Shape Tape radiant concealer stick. Shop here.

Step ٣ | Bronzer

The essential step in achieving this look is applying bronzer. And generous amounts of it.

We like Benefit’s Hoola bronzer. Shop here.

Step ٤ | Brown smokey eye

Another key element to this look is the brown smokey eye. To achieve this, you will need to play with different shades of brown and beige, apply a brown pencil to your waterline and use minimal mascara.

We like Makeup by Mario’s Master Mattes palette. Shop here.

Step ٥ | Highlighter

You can’t achieve the glowy summer look without applying a highlighter on the cheekbones, brow-bones, tip of the nose, and upper lip.

We like Lisa Eldridge’s Elevated Glow Highlighter. Shop here.

Step ٦ | Feathery Brows

Because this is a natural minimalist look, the feathery brow is perfect for it.

We like Benefit’s Gimme Brow tinted eyebrow gel. Shop here.

Step ٧ | The Lips

A lipliner and lipgloss combination is needed to get the Hailey Bieber-esque juicy lips.

We like Rare Beauty’s Words lipliner. Shop here.
