1. As Women, Choose Fun—Not Fear.
Did you play dress-up when you were a little girl? I remember simply having fun, trying on all sorts of clothes.
But as I got older, fear began replacing the fun. I was trying to fix something out of fear that I would not be up to snuff.
I had to change my thinking.
Now I ask, “How much are you enjoying yourself?” and “What really makes a woman attractive?”
I found that you can dress a woman up, give her a fancy hairstyle and perfect makeup, but if she is not enjoying herself, the results fall short. You can see the fear, desperation and insecurity in her.
But when you see a woman who is radiating confidence, joy, and clearly enjoying herself, what do you see then?
You see what makes a woman truly attractive: happiness.
2. Find a Balance.
I eventually found a balance that worked for me.
I discovered it was fun to wear makeup now and again, as well as experiment with my hair and clothes. But the difference was I was doing this in the spirit of pleasure and fun.
I say if it’s fun for you to primp, color, dress and adorn yourself, go for it.
Just keep in mind what is motivating you…fun or fear. Then go for fun!
Boom products are designed in the spirit of fun and personal self care. Our philosophy is about taking an honest and realistic approach to beauty.
As women, the most prevalent message we hear throughout our lives is: “Do whatever it takes to look young and conceal your age!”
That is a tall order to live with.
I am inviting women to drop the ageism against ourselves and consider celebrating your age. I believe we become more and better as life continues. There is always more to celebrate as time goes on.
3. Choose the Color of Happiness.
I worked as a makeup artist for over 27 years.
What I have observed again and again is that when a woman gets excited and happy, she blushes!
When our circulation revs up, we get color in our cheeks, forehead, lips, neck and anywhere the capillaries are close to the surface. You can see the increased blood flow that naturally comes with excitement and joy.
Boomstick Color mimics this natural “blush.”
It’s sheer and creamy to keep your skin looking radiant and alive. You can use it anywhere you would naturally blush including your cheeks, forehead, lips, neck, and eyelids to give you that look of joy and happiness.
Boomstick Color is also a universal color that works for every skin tone—from porcelain to chocolate. (And every gorgeous color in between!)
4. Use 1 Moisturizer, Instead of 12.
The beauty industry convinces women that we need anywhere from 5 to 12 different moisturizers.
One for our face, another for our eyes, lips, cuticles, another for our body, our hands, our heels, and then a whole other moisturizer for night!
Seriously? Have you asked your doctor about this?
If your moisturizer is pure and safe and effective, it can be used for every area of body, from head to toe.
That’s what our moisturizers, Boomsilk and Boomstick Glo are designed to do. You can use either moisturizer from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet.
We only use the safest and most necessary ingredients in Boomsilk and Boomstick Glo. There’s nothing extra. No binders, parabens, phthalates, emulsifiers, perfumes, or toxic additives of any kind.
At our customers’ request, we also created Boom Cotton. It has a similar formula to Boomsilk and Boomstick Glo, but it’s for women who prefer a lighter moisturizer for their face.
5. Try a Little Bling!
Boomstick Glimmer is for the occasion you want to add little bling to your skin. It will create a natural looking radiance any time you’re in the mood for a little glamour.
It’s subtle, not frosted or “fake” looking. It just gives your skin a soft natural pearlescent radiance.
You can use it on your brow bones, eyelids, décolleté, collarbones, cheekbones and lips.
Whatever you try next, self what’s motivating you—either fun or fear. Then choose fun!
