Hey, thanks for stopping by. I’m Alice, I’m a 29-year old Photographer from Manchester, and I make content about affordable beauty and fashion over here and on my YouTube channel. 

It all started when I was at university, and couldn’t relate to influencers talking about their favourite high-end items as I was on a strict budget. When I began making videos a few years later, I wanted to focus on products that were more accessible. Originally I was planning to just talk about makeup (hence the name Red’s Makeup Bag) – but after learning to accept my size-18 body, I’ve been sharing plus-sized hauls as well.

You’ll find plenty of reviews of my favourite makeup pieces on this blog, as well as chattier articles about my personal style and how I dye my own hair. You can also watch tutorials and Primark hauls on my YouTube channel, see my makeup looks on Instagram, or find my fashion inspiration on Pinterest. If you want to keep up with my posts, make sure you’re following me on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

About my website:

I use the Savannah theme from Georgia Lou Studios. My blog is hosted on WordPress. I also use patterns and textures by PeDe Designs on my blog, videos, and thumbnails.

My equipment: 

I use a Canon 77D* and Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens* for most of my blog photos, YouTube videos, and freelancing. My microphone is the Rode Video Mic*. (Note: I don’t think it’s essential to have expensive kit to make YouTube videos or decent blog photos, especially for beginners!)
