What's in YOUR Makeup Bag #1 // With My Sister

Say hello to a new series! Inspired by the lovely Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup, I wanted to take a peek into the makeup bags of friends and family, but also to hear their opinion on makeup and why they choose to wear it. My hope is to portray varying types of people here - not everyone is a beauty junkie like me! So to kick things off, have a look at my 14 year old sister Ruth's makeup bag. She's a natural gal but does love her shiny things, and with a little guidance I think she's got a good set-up going on...

"I am quite into makeup, I watch a lot of YouTube videos. Even though I don't wear a lot, I do like it and enjoy it. I just prefer a natural look for me, nothing too bold. The concealer that I always use and repurchase is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It matches my skin better than anything else (shade Fair 1) that I've tried because so many others are too dark for me, and it lasts a really long time as well which is good.

"On my eyes I mostly use this Rimmel London Glam Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in Smoky Brun, typically the lighter pinkish shade because I like that one the best - the rest I don't really use as much. There's also the Helen E Cosmetics Single Eyeshadow in Minx, which I think is Ireland based because I've not really seen it in the UK. I got it in a goody bag at the Girl's Day Out in Glasgow last year. And I use the Lydia Professional Makeup Brushes for both of those, which you gave me.

"I use the Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara. It makes my lashes longer and blacker without smudging under my eyes. I did actually have it in waterproof the first time I bought it but this one seems to last longer, weirdly enough. I'll definitely be repurchasing that one!

"For lips... I don't really wear a lot of lip products even though I have many. I usually wear the Carmex Lip Balm, or sometimes Maybelline Babylips in Cherry Me, the reddish one. It's quite sheer but it also gives a lot of moisture. And if I'm going out I usually use the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Plum Russian (which is a favourite of mine!).

"My makeup bag is my favourite one, which is the Zoella Beauty coral pink one with a guinea pig on it!"
