What's in my makeup bag? Ruthy Ruby

Having a rummage through our favourite faces’ wares.

EACH WEEK, WE’LL be taking a peek into some of our faves’ makeup bags to see their must-have products, because we’re nosey. This week, it’s the turn of PR intern and blogger Ruthy Ruby. You can follow her Instagram here.

Her earliest makeup memories

“My earliest makeup memory is definitely when my mum was trying to encourage me to join a ballet class when I was four.

I vividly remember her coaxing me to the class for anything I wanted from the shop. I opted for a L’Oréal Paris Color riche lipstick in a beautiful rose shade. I’ll never forget it. It matched my little tutu and cardigan, I was weak.

“My signature look (a feline flick, dewy skin and rosey pink lips) was born when I was in 5th year in school. I hated school and hated the uniformity of being there so I always experimented with ways to make me stand out. I would slick on essence waterproof liquid ink liner, lashings of mascara and loads of rosey pink lip balm. It made the days go faster.”

Her makeup bag and what’s inside



“The Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter is newbie to my beauty regime. It makes your skin look so sexy. An absolute must have if you want the most insatiable glow over or under your foundation.


“The Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation is my favourite foundation since I discovered the brand. A very dewy your skin but better coverage. Nothing has ever compared to it.

"The NARS G-Spot blusher is a cream blush stick that is gorgeous on paler skin tones. It makes your skin look naturally flushed and healthy.


"I use the MAC 'Half Red' lip liner every single day. It’s the same colour as the darkest part of my lip so it looks very sexy. Kat Von D's liquid lipstick in 'Double Dare' is a deep berry pink that I wear every day.



"The L’Oréal Paris Tattoo Signature liquid liner is fool proof liner (store it upside down so it’s really inky when you use it). It sets well and doesn’t run.

"L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Fatale Mascara is favourite mascara in the entire world - perfect for length and volume (in fact the sexiest volume I’ve ever had as a result of a mascara!)


"The Essence Make Me Brow brow gel is perfect for brushing up your brows and sets really well. Only €3, too.


"OH MY GOD. My life 9. OH MY GOD. My life changed when I discovered the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette. There are four shades that you can use lightly or heavily. An absolute MUST.
