I am 51 years old and I decided to let my hair go grey about 6 years ago at the age of 45. About 3 years ago I discovered that Cindy was a high profile and beautiful model – one of the very few models with grey hair. I then discovered that she created the Boomstick cosmetic products. It was through hearing wonderful reviews of the Boom products that made me give them a go.
I have always worn make-up and taken great care to present myself well – but not overly made-up. I do the whole routine of moisturiser, foundation, setting powder, eye-shadow, eye-liner, blusher, concealer, lipstick. I do this every day for work (which takes a lot of time!) and I try to go make-up free at the weekends if I am not going out.
So, about 3 years ago I purchased the trio of Boomsticks: Glo, Color and Glimmer. To be honest, initially I didn’t use the products very much and sort of ‘grew into them’.
I always used, and continue to use, the Glo as an overnight nourishing product for under my eyes. I love this as I really feel that I am putting something onto my skin which is natural and healthy and moisturising.
I love using Color as a blusher and applying it to my eyelids and lips. It is so natural and has a lovely youthful and fresh finish.
I love Glimmer on my eyelids and browbones. It gives a lovely pearlescent finish which is natural and not cheap and glittery.
About a year ago I thought I’d try the Boomsilk. At first I thought it was a bit sticky and oily but I learned that I was applying far too much. I have learned to use it sparingly, warming it up in the palms of my hands first – very little is needed.
Like Cindy, I am very pro-age. I hate the anti-ageing message that we are constantly bombarded with in all its forms. Personally, and this has come with the wisdom of getting older, I have learned that less is more. I am becoming awakened to the fact that I don’t need the whole make-up routine every day. I am learning to accept myself wearing minimal make-up and this involves using the Boom cosmetics as my core products, complemented with a little light foundation, eye-liner and mascara. This acceptance has taken a little time to get used to but I am getting there. And, just like being grey, I am feeling so free and empowered by it.
It feels like I am allowing the inner me to come out.
I am not hiding behind my make-up mask any more.
It feels great!
Thanks Cindy for your Boom products and your inspiration!
