The Three Beauty Products Every Woman Over 30 Needs

If you’ve ever watched a YouTube tutorial, perused a beauty bloggers Instagram or had your makeup done professionally, you’ll know that there’s an overwhelming number of beauty products that can be applied in one sitting. But really, who has the bloody time for it all?

Putting your face on in the morning is probably low on the priority list (certainly well below buying and enjoying your first cup of coffee). More often than not, doing your mascara in the car and wiping lippy from your teeth as you sit down at your desk are part of your not-so-sophisticated beauty routine, am I right?

To make things easier, we’ve narrowed the extensive list down to just THREE beauty products that will make every woman’s life easier…

#1 Eye serum

A good eye serum can hide a multitude of sins in one swipe. Pop a little under each eye on a bare face and let the nourishing properties work their anti-ageing magic. An eye serum helps to reduce puffiness, smooth fine lines and brighten any dark circles. Forget the old ‘spoons in the freezer’ trick, keep cucumbers for your salad and just grab yourself an eye serum instead. You’re welcome.

Try: Sukin Antioxidant Eye SerumTransformulas Eye-Lightening SerumOlay Regenerist Revitalising Eye Serum or Palmer’s Illuminating Brightening Serum.

#2 BB Cream

Rather than applying a moisturiser, followed by an SPF cream, followed by a concealer, followed by a foundation, followed by a loose powder (we’re exhausted already), just pop some cc cream on and you’ll get the benefits of ALL of these products. Yep, CC cream is your holy grail when it comes to multi-tasking. It moisturises your skin, protects it from the sun (just make sure you get one with SPF), corrects your skin’s tone and smooths the complexion. It’s essentially the Jennifer Lopez of beauty products.

#3 Dry Shampoo

Busy women (read: all women) will know that washing your hair can be a luxury and stretching out the days until the next wash can become a skill. Enter dry shampoo. The BEST beauty invention since false lashes, dry shampoo is just so damn convenient and effective. Spray some onto the roots of your greasy locks, rub it in (best not to skip this step, lest you look like you have a terrible case of dandruff) and boom – fresh, clean-looking hair. Plus, if you add a little throughout the ends, dry shampoo can also give you a bit of extra volume.
