When your favourite coffee is your go-to makeup look, you get the 'Latte Makeup': the hottest beauty trend everyone can order. Try it out as seen on TikTok.


The 'siren eyes' look was too graphic to start your journey with makeup, and the 'revisited grunge' reminds you of a post-sleepless-night morning? Welcome the makeup trend made for everyone: the Latte Makeup.

The TikTok-Viral Latte Makeup: The Secret To Its Success

When content creator Rachel Rigler launched her Tiktok and coined the term 'latte makeup' – now on everyone's lips and faces – she might have wished to get viral. And so it did happen. Inspired by the 2018 bronzed goddess look by makeup artist Tanielle Jai, the Latte makeup is not only the hottest 'drink' in town but also the most democratic makeup trend seen so far this year. It flatters every skin tone and it is easy to achieve with minimal products and effort making it the go-to look. No matter the occasion, your time available or your practical skills, you can try the latte makeup trend and fall in love with it.

How To Create The Perfect Blend Of Latte Makeup: Your Choice of Roast

The Latte Makeup is inviting like your coffee: after a couple of tiktoks or reels, you are undoubtedly going to look for the perfect roast (of eyeshadow and bronzer) in your stash.

Keys to your latte makeup are your face base and choice of eyeshadows. Start off with a healthy sunkissed canvas, whether you opt for full coverage or a wash of tinted moisturiser. Right after, go with creamy sculpting products to chisel the hollows of your cheeks, your temples and where you need more definition. Your bronzer will set in place the cream texture and it will create the result of sunbathing days in some cool resorts. A gentle sweep of warm highlighter the browbone, bridge of your nose and cupid bow is what you need next for that happy glow.

Latte makeup is not a flat white: it is only based on a monochromatic range of browns but it will never look flat! Play on the same tone range of brown and warm it up as your skin tone darkens. Your nuances will be neutral to warm and you can go matte or shimmer, but avoid cold hues.

Latte Makeup For Your Eyes

The beauty of latte makeup is in its extreme simplicity. Forget the pain of creating the sharpest wing, this is about blending and adding glow. Once you have found your range of nude, caramels or browns, you will find yourself blending and layering, even with your fingers.

You can create a base for your latte shades with your sculping product, a creamy eyeshadow or a workable eye crayon. A creamy eye pencil is a perfect choice because it will allow you to define the lash line and start building your base and intensity at once. Smudge it towards the outer corner to diffuse the colour, then start layering your complementary brown shades and go darker in your crease for more definition.

The fun bit is placing your highlighter. Think of it as the microfoam of your latte: without it, it would not be a real barista's creation! As seen on Steph Hui's tiktok, a hyper-reflective, almost fluid, highlighter in the inner corner and the very first portion of your mobile eyelid will elevate your latte eye look. Swipe a bit of your first latte shade under your lower waterline and complete the job with your favourite mascara.

You can wear the latte trend on your lips too: contour your lips just above your natural lip line with a medium brown lip pencil, partially fill your lips with the same pencil and top it off with a light caramel lip gloss for a mouthwatering look.

You will soon find out that you have already the shades you need for this universal look. Many eyeshadow palettes feature versatile nudes and browns, so you do not have to look any further to wear this trendy look.

If you ask us, we enjoyed Pure Anada Dreamy Compact Palette (£29.95) and Vesta London Beauty Nude Lip Gloss Edition Bundle (£40), where there is the right nude for every skin tone.

The Latte Trand On Your Fingertips

The Latte trend looks universally beautiful on your nails, whether you have an evenly milky complexion or tanned skin. Hydrating and keeping your cuticles tidy is a must also with neutral manicures, so take care of them and prep your nails to strengthen them and avoid any stains. Apply a light caramel or nude shade like plant-based Earthy Nail Polish in Moody Nude (£7.99) in thin layers.

Wear it on its own or add a dark French twist or some swirls like the foam of your drink but colour-reversed. Seal your manicure with your favourite top coat so that it lasts longer than your cup of latte.

Easy, fast, highly wearable, fun and, above all, for everyone: this is why we love the 'latte makeup' trend.

Whether attending a summer wedding, the bride yourself, or just sitting on the sofa at home wanting to indulge in your self care, home luxury skin treatments never got so accessible.

One online retailer CurrentBody offers a range of own-brand devices and tools to get your skin glowing from head to toe before any big occasion.

It's not uncommon for celebrities to say they prefer to do their makeup themselves, for they know their skin and their best angles. It's no different with our skin’s needs and fragilities, especially if we knew there was an alternative to professional treatments normally requiring booking in at a skin clinic. As technology advances, more options are available to safely administer more complex treatments ourselves in the comfort of our own home.

Here’s your one-stop-shop guide, for intense repair skin treatments for glowing results.

For Tackling Lines Around The Eyes

The CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector (RRP £169) is a wearable LED rechargeable device that works to address the delicate eye area, helping to target fine lines and wrinkles. Supercharged with four light wavelengths: AMBER, RED, DEEP RED and INFRARED Light, these four options help stimulate the natural processes in the body to work towards rejuvenating the skin, without any harmful UV light effect. Another tool for the eye area is the innovative, first-of-its-kind anti-wrinkle sleep mask (RRP £90) which has just launched in Rose Gold. A collaboration with leading aesthetics doctor, Dr Steve Harris. Using 2R Technology (resistance and relaxation), the silicone dots gently grip your skin to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. This resistance helps to prevent sleep creases – usually caused by your pillow – for smoother skin around the eyes. The physical relaxation of muscles and emotional relaxation as the mask stimulates your mechanoreceptors – tiny little nerve endings in your face.

For Boosting Collagen Production In The Skin

Celebrity loved product, stainless steel hand-held CurrentBody Skin Cryo Roller (RRP £30) device delivers sub-zero temperatures to your skin, shocking skin cells into sending blood and nutrients to the area. This fresh delivery of nutrients helps flush away toxins, and reduce water retention, for radiant skin. The tool can be used as often as needed and for best results, store in the freezer.

Another firm favourite from the brand is their hero LED device, the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask (RRP £279). This pain-free, anti-ageing mask harnesses two combinations of light therapy to rejuvenate your complexion. Red Light stimulates the production of new collagen, calms redness and creates an even skin tone. Near Infra-Red works beneath the skin's surface, penetrating deep boosting circulation, improving blood flow and boosting oxygen to the skin's cells.

For Smoothing The Delicate Neck Area

With the CurrentBody LED range known for playing an important role in celebrities beauty prepping regimes, it’s no surprise that the popular CurrentBody Skin LED Neck & Dec Perfector (RRP £250) is their go to LED device for the neck. Perfect for treating fine lines and wrinkles on your neck and chest with clinically-proven LED therapy, this innovative device harnesses two powerful light therapies to encourage cell renewal for younger-looking skin.

For The Youthful Pout On Your Lips

After the award-winning launch of the LED Eye Perfector back in March 2022, CurrentBody Skin have continued to get ahead of the targeted home-use treatments with their newest beauty device launch, launching in Summer 2022.

The LED Lip Perfector specifically designed to target fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area, is unlike any other technology and topical skincare treatments on the market. This device treats the very deepest layers of the skin without pain or irritation. Bringing professional strength, clinically proven methods found in clinics and salons around the world to the comfort of your own home. Allowing you to achieve a more youthful pout with just 3 minutes of use per day.

Not only will they look softer, younger and healthier but any joint pain will be reduced too. LED red light therapy is also used professionally for skin healing and scar reduction. This means you can use it before and after aesthetic treatments. All you need to do is spend 20 minutes, 3-5 times a week for best results.

Model Approved Skin Care Essentials

Are you looking for some skincare essentials that models and beauticians equally love? Well, we’ve got you covered. 

We reveal 5 simple and accessible products models love and use in their daily skincare maintenance and why models swear by it.

Skincare Essentials That Models Love

The world of skincare is absolutely massive and having a winning set of products is key, but finding these great products can be a tough task because of how many competing brands there are on the market.

In this article, we'll be sharing which products are most important and why you need to be using them. These items should be part of your daily skin care routine and we think you’ll absolutely love them.

1. A Great Cleanser

A good cleanser is the cornerstone of any solid skincare routine and should be the first step in your regime, morning and night. It's important to find a cleanser that suits your skin type as this will help to ensure that your skin is being properly cared for.

If you have oily skin, you'll want to look for a gel or foaming cleanser as these will help to remove excess oil without stripping the skin. If you have dry skin, on the other hand, you'll want to look for a balm-based cleanser as these will be more gentle.

Cleansing is really important to your skin care routine because it is designed to remove any grime, impurities, or excess oil from your face that could otherwise cause a breakout.

Why not give your face a double cleansing approach like they do in Japan? It's super easy to do as well, with you first cleansing with an oil cleanser before washing and then using a moisturising cleanser to restore hydration after cleaning your skin.

2. A Skin-protecting Serum

Vitamin C is an absolutely essential ingredient in any skincare routine as it has so many benefits for the skin. It's a powerful antioxidant which means it helps to protect the skin from damage caused by sunlight, brightens the complexion, and even helps to boost collagen production.

If getting it in serum form isn't for you, supplements can do a decent job at giving you skin that's robust and sun damage resistant. Getting vitamin C onto your skin and into your diet is something that's overlooked by many, despite the benefits of it being well-known.

All of these factors combined, make this vitamin a real powerhouse ingredient that every model swears by. Many don't seem to have incorporated it into their skin care routines, but we have no idea why.

3. An Spf Primer

SPF primer is an absolute must-have for caring for your skin, no matter what time of year it is. The sun's UV rays can cause all sorts of damage to the skin including wrinkles, sunspots, and even cancer so it's important to always make sure you're protected with a good quality SPF product. Look for an SPF30 or higher on the label.

Using a good primer with a good SPF rating can help your skin from drying out and stop you from ageing prematurely, making you look younger for longer. When buying a good SPF primer, you should look for a product that will give your skin a good glow and is easy to use, whilst also giving you a grease-free finish.

4. A Hydrating Moisturiser

A good moisturiser is essential for keeping the skin hydrated and looking perfect. What's important is to find one that suits your skin type as this will help to ensure that your skin is getting the hydration it needs without becoming too greasy or oily.

Your moisturiser is something that's definitely worth spending good money on because it can help you to look fresh, as well as help you continue to a youthful appearance thanks to the lack of dried and cracked skin. It's worth the investment!

5. A Facial Oil

Facial oils are a great way to add an extra boost of hydration to the skin and they can be particularly beneficial for those with dry or mature skin types. They can also help to balance out oil production in those with oily or combination skin types.

Why use facial oil though? These beauty facial oils help give you a luminous appearance and can keep you looking moist and ready to seize the day. There are lots of different facial oils on the market so it's important to find one that contains ingredients that are beneficial for your specific skin type.

Nobody wants to have skin that's dry and in poor condition, so investing in a good facial oil will help remedy this and help make you confident in your skin. These oils can actually restore aged skin, and deliver vital antioxidants.
