This summer, a trending look called “latte makeup” became super popular on social media. The warm bronzy makeup look gives a gorgeous summer glow while keeping things simple. This style looks amazing on all skin tones and all hair colors, but we especially love it for redheads.
Now there’s another, spicier version of the latte makeup trend for autumn. It’s called the “cinnamon spice latte”. We’re here to say: this is the makeup of fall. Redhead Tiktoker @justicebmitchell did a video applying her cinnamon spice latte makeup and we are OBSESSED:
Here’s how redheads can get the look:
Step 1: Light foundation – Like the original latte makeup, this look isn’t heavy on the foundation. Opt for a light to medium coverage and if you like, let your freckles peek through.
Step 2: Concealer – Add a pop of concealer under the eyes, along the bridge of the nose and anywhere else you want to lighten, brighten and highlight. This helps to create depth in the face since there isn’t much contouring.
Step 3: Light Contour – As mentioned contouring is light. Just enough to add some dimension, but bronzing is the real key here. You can even skip the contour if you wish.
Step 4: Bronze, Bronze, Bronze – Again, like latte makeup, this look is all about being bronzed. For fair-skinned redheads, choose a color only a few shades darker than your skin tone to help warm it up without looking orange.
Step 5: Blush – If you want to add blush, the trick is to use something warm, but not pink. A warm copper or rose gold is perfect. Too much pink will take away from the bronzy gold look.
Step 6: Eyes – In the video, Justice uses a few very warm-toned shadows on her lids. For a super cohesive look, try using your bronzer and blush colors on your eyelids. Finish with some mascara or lashes.
Looking for the perfect fall mascaras to top off your cinnamon spice latte makeup? Look no further:
You might know How to be a Redhead has a line of mascaras called Finally Have Lashes. It consists of three shades: Red-y for Lashes Perfectly Auburn Redhead Mascara, Brown With a Splash of Red: Perfectly Brown Mascara, and A Full 180: Perfectly Black Mascara (PLUS new shades coming soon!!)
Step 7: Lips – Here’s the biggest difference between this look and regular latte makeup. Justice opts for a bitten red lip, but we think any bold red would look amazing. Unlike the neutrals of the latte makeup, you want the lip to stand out.
Rock it like a Redhead!
