Your data do not extend to ±35 so the axis limits you have asked axis() for are outside the plot region. it is plot() that is (correctly) defaulting to the data range. if you want to override that to get a larger plot range, specify the y limits for the plot as part of the plot command:
plot(c(0,5),range(df$Percent),type = "n", axes=FALSE, ann=F, ylim=c(-35, 35))
barplot(height = df$Percent[df$Sex == "Females"], add = TRUE,axes = FALSE,
col="#b498ec", ylab="")
barplot(height = df$Percent[df$Sex == "Males"], add = TRUE, axes = F, col="#f8bb85", ylab="",
names.arg=c("18-29", "30-44", "45-59", "60+"))
axis(side=2, at = seq(-35,35,by=5),
labels=format(abs(seq(-35,35,by=5)), scientific=F),
cex.axis=0.7)
#Axes now run to ±35
