Make Up Through The Years - A Guide To What To Wear In Your 30s

Makeup in your 30s - The Breakdown

Hitting your 30s means hilariously looking back at all the makeup disasters and successes you made throughout your 20s and teenage years. We’ve all been there. Dealing with teenage problem skin, phases of blemishes, pimples, acne! Thank goodness those days are well and truly over! Being in your 30s most likely means you’re aware of what products sit best on your skin, the colours you prefer, and style and technique of your makeup, you may even save a special place on your vanity table for your most favoured product of all time.

But unfortunately with age comes wrinkles, the sign of dull skin, black under eyes and more. Some of us may even long for our teenaged blemish skin rather than watch wrinkles form around the eyes! The main aim when being in your 30s is to create that radiant dewy face you once had ( or still have ), with more emphasis and care on the skin rather than applying buckets of makeup to the face. The trick is to highlight your ageful shine, not dampen it down. 

We’ve therefore selected the best beauty products below to give you a fresh youthful glow, and luscious plump lips! Who said being in your 30s was bad? We definitely didn’t!
