Monica Barbosa

Firstly, let me introduce myself; my name is Monica, I’m the fashion and beauty blogger at MothLoves. I post about my personal style, fashion trends and exciting beauty products.

Here are the products that I use in my everyday makeup routine:

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation: I can’t believe I only discovered this sensational foundation a few months ago, now I will never go back to any other foundation! This is one purchase that I can say, hand on heart, was so worth it. This foundation genuinely makes my skin feel so silkily smooth all day.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat – The one product I could not live without! Although it is not exactly a costly bargain it is worth every single penny as an under-eye brightener. It gives your puffy sleepy eyes a beautiful brightening makeover.

Benefit Boi-ing – This is a brilliant concealer that perfectly covers up any imperfections or discolouration you may be having. Do not fear imperfections, because you can just ‘Boi-ing’ them away!

Chanel Universal Bronzer – On an everyday basis I don’t really wear blush, rather I prefer to stick to only using an all over bronzer. I simply adore the quality of bronze finish that the Chanel universal bronzer gives. It gives you a perfect glow all day long.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Although I do have all three Naked palettes (I could not help myself),  I have to admit the Naked 2 has the BEST colours to use for a daytime natural look! The colours are quite simple, from your golden hues to some subtle brown shades.

Bourjois Mega Liner Dark Black: This eyeliner has an extra angled large tip which allows you to easily create both thin and thick lines. Unlike most eyeliners this one actually lasts the 24 hours that it promises… so no need for a top-up!

Bourjois 1 Second Mascara: I have just recently started using this Bourjois mascara and I love it! This mascara is designed to coat your lashes from root to tip in 1 second, and it does exactly what it says. It gives you long beautiful pigmented lashes in a finger click.

MAC Lipstick Angel: The ‘Angel’ shade is a gorgeous soft natural pink shade, which I normally use on an everyday basis to give my lips a little bit of colouring.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Plucker XL Extreme Plump: I always like to add a slight oomph to my lips in the morning and this ‘Sexy Mother Plucker’ certain does that. It gives your lips a little tingle to create more volumptious pout. Personally, I think this is one of the best glosses on the market today.
