How To Recreate Latte Girl Makeup

17 | 07 | 2023


Latte girl makeup is summer’s upgrade to the vanilla girl trend. Think bronzy, milky and effortless.

If clean girl was your go-to beauty aesthetic then you’ll love this look!


It’s official, the TikTok trend of latte girl has picked up from where vanilla girl left off.

This summer approved trend is essentially the new season spin on those cosy vanilla girl vibes.

With sunkissed glowy skin and beachy vibes replacing those cosy laidback looks, it’s not hard to understand why #lattemakeup has over 9 million views on TikTok.




So, now we have an idea as to what latte girl makeup actually is, here’s five steps to achieving the look:

#1. Minimal coverage 

Opt for a lightweight base such as a tinted moisturiser to achieve the classic your skin but better look.

#2. Undertones are everything 

When working towards the latte girl look, you’ll want to aim for yellow-based products rather than red.

#3. Freckles? Yes please!

Keep it natural if you already have face freckles, if not then opt for a faux freckle pen to add a few here and there.

#4. Golden goddess goals

When it comes to eye shadow, bronzer and contour, keep your entire colour palette warm toned. Think bronze and caramel shades.

Similar to this, switch black eye liner for brown instead, summer smokey eyes – we see you.

#5. Glass like gloss or making it matte?

When it comes to lips, it’s completely up to you.

If all about gloss, line with a muted honey liner before applying a sleek gloss.

For more matte vibes line your lip before applying a muted matte lipstick.

Stunning either way!

Looking for a heavier makeup look? You’re in luck as espresso makeup is also creating a stir on TikTok right now.

Taking inspo from latte makeup, the espresso look is (you guessed it) deeper, darker shades, essentially making for latte girls older more grungier sister trend.

Although the overall look is very similar to latte girl, the makeup shades are darker as well as a heavier application. Think more contour, heavier bronzer, smokier eyes and a bold brows.


Here’s how to level up your latte girl look to suit espresso girl…

#1. Demi-matte skin

Skin tint and a lightweight concealer is the go-to for this.

#2. Contouring is key

Heavier contour is essential for the espresso trend – opt for a contour stick as well as using a lighter bronzer to replace any blush.

#3. All about the eyes

Think super smokey eyes, we’re talking half lid blended and brought up to your brow.

Complete the look with black liner, smudged in both waterlines and a whole load of mascara.




This version of the beauty look is giving day to night transitional makeup and we are OBSESSED!
