Are you ready to spice up your makeup routine this fall season? On this episode of Cityline, we’re taking the classic “latte makeup look” trend and upgrading it to the cozy “pumpkin spice latte makeup look.” Beauty expert, our very own Brittany Gray, guides us through the steps to achieve these two trendy looks that are perfect for the autumn season.
Latte Makeup Look
The latte makeup look is all about embracing warmth and natural tones, making it a great choice for a wide range of skin tones. Let’s dive into the steps to achieve this charming look.
- Eyeshadow: Select warm, neutral eyeshadow shades like beige, brown, and taupe. Begin by applying the lighter shade to your eyelids, blending it upwards towards your brow bone. Create depth by using a slightly darker shade in the crease. For a touch of glamour, apply a shimmery or metallic shade to the centre of your eyelids. Britt recommends our #fancified eye shadow palette with our Wanderlust eye shimmer.
- Eyeliner: Keep it soft by lining your eyes with brown eyeliner. Finish the eye makeup with mascara to lengthen and volumize your lashes.
- Cheeks: For a healthy glow, apply a warm-toned blush – such as our Almost Famous cream blush – to the apples of your cheeks for a rosy bronzed flush. Sweep our Maui Mood bronzer along your cheekbones, temples, and jawline to add warmth and dimension to your complexion.
- Lips: Complete the look with a nude or soft brown lipstick or lip gloss. Don’t forget to apply a subtle highlighter to the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow. Britt’s lip cocktail for this look would be: Nude lip liner, Modern Muse lip lacquer, and Bubbly lip gloss.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Makeup Look
Now, let’s transition into our cozy “pumpkin spice latte makeup look.” This upgrade will infuse warm, autumn-inspired shades to capture the essence of pumpkin spice goodness.
- Eyeshadow: Start by keeping your neutral eyeshadow base from the latte look. To create the pumpkin spice vibe, add shades of warm oranges, coppers, and reddish-browns to your eyeshadow – the brick tone shade from our #fancified Eye shadow palette is perfect for this look. Concentrate these shades on your eyelids and crease, blending them outward and slightly upwards for a soft smoky effect. To capture the essence of pumpkin spice, consider adding a touch of gold or shimmer (Britt would recommend our Wanderlust eye shimmer or Boujie highlighter) to the centre of your eyelids.
- Lips: Choose a deeper, more autumn-toned lip colour like burnt orange, terracotta, or a warm brown. You can go for a matte finish for those rich fall vibes or select a glossy finish if that suits your style. Try our Organza lip liner all over your lips, topped with our Forbidden Fruit Coquette lip tint/balm.
- Cheeks: To complete the pumpkin spice transformation, apply a blush in a warm, rosy terracotta shade to mimic that flush of warmth associated with autumn. Britt’s recommendation: French Kiss powder blush.
Brittany has effortlessly shown us how to transition from the classic “latte makeup look” to a cozy and warm fall-inspired makeup style. With these step-by-step instructions, you can now embrace the warmth and charm of the autumn season in your makeup routine. So, go ahead, channel your inner pumpkin spice enthusiast, and make your makeup as inviting and delightful as your favourite fall beverage.
