How to Do a Latte Makeup Look with Ashley [Tutorial]

Find me

Hey Glammie, have you ever tried following a YouTube makeup tutorial and felt like you wish you had a quicker way to get through it? Sometimes it can be frustrating having to start and stop, hit pause, and scramble to find the right brush. So, we’ve decided to take your frustrations away and give you a simplified version of our makeup content. For every video tutorial, you’ll get a list of the products, tools, and equipment you need and a step-by-step breakdown that’s easy to comprehend. 

The Latte Makeup trend took over the internet and sent the girlies on a frenzy in 2023. I saw it all over my timeline, and if I’m being honest, my initial thoughts were that this trend was a bit overhyped. But, as I saw more people hopping on, I realized that this was actually my everyday look, so why not give a stab at it? 

This trend requires nothing more than neutral brown tones. Some call it a “No Makeup Makeup” look, while today it’s called a “Latte Makeup Look,” but nevertheless, it’s a fresher take on a simple makeup routine. There are many ways to elevate this effortless look and take it up a notch, and that’s exactly what I did in my tutorial below. 

For my feature product to bring this to life, I used the Dior Face & Body Foundation as my base, and a combination of some oldie but-goodie products that are my tried and true faves for brown tones. All of the techniques and steps I took to achieve this left me with a gorgeously bronzed complexion and a universal makeup look. If you want to know just how I did it, the short version that is, then keep on reading!

  1. Prep your skin using your fave moisturizer, sunscreen, eye cream, and primer if you need it to make sure your skin is well hydrated. 
  2. Correct any blemishes or hyperpigmentation areas using a color corrector suitable for your complexion. 
  3. Apply a concealer 1-2 shades brighter under your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, your chin, and your forehead. Bonus points if you add a bit under your cheek bone for that extra snatched look. 
  4. Allow your concealer a few minutes to dry slightly before blending. 
  5. Blend your concealer into those areas using a fluffy concealer brush, or the It Cosmetics Airbrush Smoothing Foundation Brush.
  6. Once your concealer has been blended, sculpt your face by using a cream or liquid contour product. Focus on the cheekbones, forehead, sides of your nose, and jawline using a buffing motion to diffuse the color. 
  7. Grab a synthetic blend powder brush or your favorite foundation brush of choice. Begin applying a small layer of foundation onto your face, starting at the center of your face and working your way outward. Simultaneously, be sure to apply in layers to build coverage in certain areas, and keep it light on your forehead and chin.
  8. Now, it’s time to set your makeup. Take a velour powder puff, and swipe it into a sheer pressed powder, such as the Sephora Microsmooth Powder. Tap off the excess powder onto the back of your hand and then begin to lightly press the powder under your eyes, and anywhere else you would like to remove shine.
  9. Apply a powder bronzer, such as the Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r Bronzer, using a contour brush and blending over your contoured areas. (Forehead, jawline, chin, cheek, sides of nose)
  10.  After you’ve set your face, apply your favorite bronzey or golden toned shimmer highlighter such as MAC Mineralize Gold Deposit or the Becca Highlight Powder in “Truffle”


  1. Fill in your brows using your preferred brow pencil or product. 
  2. Prepare your eyes for eyeshadow using your cream or liquid bronzer as an eyeshadow base. Apply using a fluffy blending brush such as the Morphe M173 brush. 
  3. Connect the eyeshadow base by smudging the same cream or liquid bronzer under your lash line using a pencil eyeshadow brush. 
  4. Use an eyeshadow blending brush to apply the same powder bronzer on to your eyes. Blend in a circular buffing motion and build to your desired depth. 
  5. Grab a flat eyeshadow brush to blend the bronzer under your lash line to create more shape and definition. (Bonus Points: You can also apply a darker brown eyeshadow to blend along the top and bottom lash lines so that when you put on mascara, your eyes pop a bit more!)
  6. Using the same flat eyeshadow brush, apply the bright gold shade in the Touch by Sol #Glowdient palette into the tear ducts.
  7. Apply your favorite mascara or lashes and set your brows using a brow sculpt product such as the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara.


  1. Apply a warm or cool toned brown lip liner to your lips, such as the NYX Lip Liner in Auburn. 
  2. Take a peachy or soft pink toned nude lipstick, like MAC Cosmetics “Honey Love” matte lipstick and apply in the center of the lips to create a puckered pout. 
  3. Next, apply the NYX Butter Gloss in the shade “Madeleine” or any creamy brown nude lipgloss.
