My favorite summer makeup

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. 


I don't use makeup everyday, but when I want to have a extra flawless looking skin I love to use the face fabric makeup by Georgio Armani because it is super mattifying and it has spf in it. The studio finish concealer by Mac I use every day to cover up my under eye circles and to hide any blemishes and rednesses I have. Both products are super long lasting.

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. 


I don't apply eyeshadow daily, but sometimes I love to create looks with my naked 2 pallet. I think you already have read a lot about it so I am not going to tell you have wonderful it is haha. 

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


  1. die naked palette soll sehr gut sein :)

    von armani hatte ich bisher nochnix, verwende für mein gesicht nur die foundation von clinique, das ist die einzige, welche meine haut verträgt :D


    1. Jaa die ist super :)
      Clinique hat auch immer tolle Sachen! Und schön dass du eine Foundation für dich gefunden hast :) das ist ja nicht immer so einfach!

  2. Hey, du hast die Naked-Palette (bzw. Naked 2) :) Die soll wirklich gut sein!
    Ich benutze allerdings überhaupt keinen Lidschatten... das ist mir morgens (im unausgeschlafenen Zustand) dann doch zu viel Arbeit :D Mascara & Kajal reichen da^^
    Und Danke für deinen lieben Kommentar! :) Nutella ist und bleibt das beste! Da kommt kein Fake-Nutella wie Nusspli ran meiner Meinung nach :)
    Liebe Grüße, Danni

    1. Jaa das stimmt, Lidschatten dauert dann immer noch ein bisschen länger und man will es ja auch vernünftig machen :) aber es macht auch Spaß mit den Farben zu spielen.
      Neiin fake-nutella ist nie gut :D wenn schon dann richtig! ;)

  3. Die Mascara habe ich auch - die ist wirklich klasse! <3

    Liebe Grüße,
