The Thirty Blog

A true blue Aussie makeup & skincare addict.

It all started when I moved back to Brisbane after the adventure of a lifetime, spending seven years in London. After living a skincare life of makeup wipes, moisturiser that was totally wrong for me and expensive facials that did jack all, I discovered Mecca Cosmetica in Brisbane and real, honest, goodness filled skincare. When I got my acne prone, oily skin under control, I then realised that make up actually looked good on me and a true addiction was formed.

I became obsessed with finding great quality, not ridiculously expensive (although I still like a splurge now and then!) and age-appropriate skincare and makeup and sharing them with my friends and family, who often mentioned that they felt a bit disillusioned by the younger beauty bloggers who didn't share the same skincare and makeup concerns that we did and I decided that it was time to come out of retirement as a blogger and start a little site dedicated to sharing my favourite finds, tips, tricks and stories, all dedicated to us babes over thirty!
