Cindy Joseph has lived what most of us would consider a dream life. She began her career as make-up artist and worked with some of the biggest names in the modeling business over a 25-year career. Then at the age of 49 when she was pondering retiring as a make-up artist, she was given the chance to work on the other end of the camera. Cindy Joseph is now a supermodel for Ford Models, Inc. and has adorned the pages of magazines such as O Magazine and worked for prestigious companies like Espirit de Corps and Banana Republic.
Over the years Cindy developed what can be explained as a passion for ageless beauty. But first she had to go through a monumental Aha! moment. “Like everybody else,” Cindy explains, “I suffered from all the prejudices about what a model should look like.” What she’s learned over the years is that beauty doesn’t have to be defined by height, weight, hair color, or even age.
As a result, Cindy’s meandering but purposeful career is now exploding again, this time with a Boom!
Culling together her passion for makeup, her refreshing perspective on beauty, decades of hands-on research in cosmetics, and expertise in front of and behind the camera, Cindy continues promoting ageless, believable beauty with the launch of BOOM! By Cindy Joseph.
You can also catch Cindy on the pages of Experience Life Magazine, both in print and online via her monthly blog, “Just Cindy.” She brings a new voice to the magazine, with a fresh and provocative perspective.
