How to Shift Your
Perspective on Aging

3 WAYS TO LOVE YOUR AGE AT
40, 50, 60, 70 AND BEYOND

  • At BOOM!, we believe that women only get better as we get older.

    When we say “better,” we mean women get stronger, wiser, more confident, happier, sexier, and more beautiful with age.

    That’s because living is a process of growth. The more time we have on the planet, the more time we have to grow, learn and expand.

    But as we all know, society is full of messages for women that contradict that truth. Almost from birth, we’re told that “youth = beauty.”

    Even if we intellectually know that’s false, these messages are so pervasive that they can still influence how we see ourselves.

    So how can we contradict these messages when we find them showing up in our lives? Here are a few things that can help you embrace your age even when society tells you otherwise.

  • 1. Look for beauty.

    If we don’t actively develop our own perception of beauty, we can default to society’s messages of so-called “beauty.”

    Being “active” means not just noticing beauty, but intentionally looking for it. This active search for beauty can start in the mirror!

    For example, let’s say you notice a new silver hair. Rather than stressing out about it, you can decide to see that silver hair as beautiful—on purpose. You can take an extra minute, and notice how that silver hair sparkles, and how it contrasts with the rest of your hair.

    In this way, you can look for beauty in yourself and in other women. Try looking for the beauty in older women—you’ll find it!

  • 2. Think in developmental stages.

    We’re used to doing this with kids. We share a wide understanding of children’s developmental stages that lead to “adulthood.”

    But did you know that developmental phases don’t end at 22?

    Neuroscience now recognizes our brains keep developing in every decade of life—especially if we stretch ourselves and keep learning.

    We don’t just “develop” in childhood. We keep evolving through every stage of life!

  • 3. Cultivate a growth mindset

    Studies show one of the best predictors of increasing success and happiness is having a “growth mindset” rather than a “fixed mindset.” It means believing your life can grow and expand rather than just accepting “this is how it is.”

    If you cultivate a mindset where you’re always growing and learning, then you’ll start seeing aging as a process of expansion.

    At BOOM!, we believe aging makes you more, not less. That’s why we designed a line of pro-age cosmetics that highlights your natural beauty at every age. Click below or read on for details.

Is there a woman who hasn’t dabbed a little lipstick on her cheeks for a quick touch-up?

The whole idea behind BOOM! is less is more. Women shouldn’t have to use dozens of different makeup products—especially in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and beyond.

You should be able to simplify your makeup routine, paring down to just a few items that bring out your best. That's why our late founder, Cindy Joseph, originally created Boomsticks. These three compact, creamy cosmetic sticks were designed to simplify, replacing many of those products in your makeup bag.

BOOM! is the sound of a revolution in cosmetics. Whereas other cosmetic companies are constantly adding products, we are taking them away.

While other skin care and makeup companies carry “anti-aging” products, BOOM! is the only company that is “PRO-AGE.” And we are not the only ones who think age is beautiful.

Our late founder, Cindy Joseph, spent 27 years as a makeup artist. With her unique insight into bringing out women's beauty (at EVERY age), she created our original Boom cosmetics and skin-care line. "As women age, looking fresh rather than made up is the key," Cindy said.

“The biggest makeup mistake that middle-aged women make is putting on too much under-eye concealer,” Cindy said. “At home, it might look okay, but in the daylight, it just looks like a bunch of gunk under your eyes. The older you get, the less makeup you should wear. It’s not a blank canvas anymore.

Long before Cindy founded BOOM!, she had two very successful careers—first as a makeup artist, and then as a silver-haired supermodel.

Cindy began her career as a makeup artist in late-1970s San Francisco. Working for Macy's, Esprit and others, she pioneered the "natural look" with her models—which later became the inspiration for Boom cosmetics.

Soon after Cindy let her silver hair grow in, she was spotted on a New York sidewalk by fashion photographer Steven Meisel's scout. At 49, she began her second career as a silver-haired supermodel. During the next two decades, she was featured in ads for Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Olay, Nivea, L.L. Bean, Target and more.

Having spent nearly three decades as a makeup artist and another two as a supermodel, Cindy decided—in her early 60s—to go into the cosmetics business herself. She wanted to design a line of cosmetics that was all about revealing, embracing and celebrating women's natural beauty at every age. We are proud to say that she succeeded...and BOOM! was born. Today, Boomstick Trio is still our customer favorite, creating the dewy natural look ideal for all skin types and tones at all ages.

Cindy's legacy lives on in all of us here at BOOM!, as well as hundreds of thousands of women worldwide who resonate with her pro-age philosophy.

“Today, Cindy’s legacy lives on in the hundreds of thousands of women who use Boom cosmetics and skin care.”

What women are saying about us...

“By far this is the best ‘make-up’ for women over 40. I feel the need to brighten up just a little. Time is showing on my face, which is beautiful, but a splash of Boom is the perfect accompaniment of a wonderful life.” — Susan
