Hey how have you been? I hope that you had a great weekend and that you could enjoy the sun and the warm weather :) In today's post I am going to show you my current make up I like to use. I know that I usually don't do any makeup posts but thought that every once in a while could make a nice change. I thought that this is the perfect moment to share my favorites because when I packed for my parents place I only took a few things with me, and what would I take with me if not my favorite products. So this is basically what I like to us when applying make up.
To set the concealer and occasionally also the makeup I like to use Mac's mineralize skinfinish natural or Manhattan's 2in1 perfect teint. I think both work really well and I don't really see any big differences between them, only that the Manhattan one is much more cheaper haha.
On the left is my favorite blush ever. It looks so boring in the packaging but applied on the cheeks it's really gorgeous. It's the sheer blush also by Georgio Armani.
In the middle is my favorite powdery highlighter, Mac's whisper of glit, which gives my face the most perfect glow since it's a gold shimmer.
On the right side is a liquid highlighter which I apply if I don't want to use a powdery one, because I feel like it last longer. It's more like a champagne color and it reflects light perfectly. It's called fluid sheer by Georgio Armani.
But what I do use on a daily basis on my eyes is this paint pot by Mac in the color bare study. I use it as a base for eyeshadow or just to have a little glittery effect on my eyelids.
For mascara I have been using the I <3 extreme from essence for a long time now. I like to try new ones every once in a while but always come back to this one.
For my eyebrows I use the eyebrow designer also by essence because it's so easy to use and defines my eyebrows in an instant.
I like to do my eye-line with the master precise my Maybelline because it's super black and easy to handle.
To make my eyes look brighter I apply a nude liner on my lower waterline. I use the automatic lipliner by Rival de Loop.
So that was it. I don't always apply everything, sometimes I just put on concealer, powder, blush and mascara, if I am running late or I am not in the mood for doing everything super prices.
I hope that you enjoyed this different post and I would love to know what you think of my summer makeup essentials.
I wish you a wonderful week!
Love, Karla Johanna
