This video is a step-by-step tutorial for creating the latte makeup trend. It looks fabulous on every skin tone, at any time of the year.
The tutorial begins with the creator introducing the concept of “latte makeup” as a viral trend characterized by earthy and warm bronzy tones. The inspiration for this makeup style comes from the idea of coffee, particularly the sun-kissed and neutral aspects.
The creator emphasizes the inclusive nature of latte makeup, mentioning that it looks fabulous on every skin tone, distinguishing it from some other beauty trends.
The skincare routine involves using the pro collagen cream by Elemis, a three-in-one anti-wrinkle moisturizer with SPF 30. The creator also employs a massager, either a specialized one or regular ice wrapped in cloth, to reduce puffiness around the eyes.
For makeup application, the Fenty Pro filter foundation in the shade 240 is used, applied with a Real Techniques foundation brush. The tutorial encourages flexibility in coverage levels, allowing for sheer, medium, or full coverage based on personal preference. The importance of blending the foundation down to the neck for a seamless look is highlighted.
The creator then uses the Milani concealer in the shade 145 (warm beige) around the mouth and under the eyes. To add dimension to the face, Fenty match stick in truffle is applied to the hollows of the cheekbones and jawline.
The makeup application continues with contouring the nose, optional blush application using a warm-toned shade from Red Beauty, and setting the makeup with Laura Mercier translucent powder. The technique of baking is introduced to add more definition to the makeup.
The tutorial includes detailed steps for eyebrow grooming, using a transparent brow gel and a brow pencil in chocolate brown. The eyes are then highlighted with a brown eyeshadow look using a neutral palette from Tarte. The step-by-step eyeshadow application involves shades like firecracker, rebel, leader, and funny girl.
For the finishing touches, the lower lash line is smoked out using eyeshadow, a brown metallic gold pencil is applied to the lower waterline, and mascara is used for length and lift. The creator suggests adding a touch of gold to the center of the lid for those who want to elevate the look.
The tutorial concludes with the final makeup look, featuring a balanced and classy appearance with a focus on bronzy tones.
