7 Makeup Tips for Glasses Wearers

As You Age, Create a Natural Makeup Look To Match Your Style of Glasses

If you’ve worn glasses for decades, you might consider them part of your overall look.

Glasses present their own challenges when deciding how to apply your makeup—especially as you age.

At BOOM! By Cindy Joseph, we have seven tips to help you apply makeup that enhances your natural beauty—regardless of which frames you choose to wear.

  • 1. Let your frames guide your eye makeup.

    Love bold, chunky frames? Try lighter eye makeup—like a single layer of mascara.

    Thin or rimless specs? Add more oomph to your eye makeup—like two coats of mascara and a creamy eyeshadow like our Boomstick Glimmer®.

  • 2. Reach for mascara, not eyeliner.

    Heavy eyeliners can make nearsighted eyes appear smaller. We suggest applying our Boom Bright™ mascara to just your lash line to define your eyes instead.

  • 3. Choose a mascara that doesn’t flake.

    Gentle, hypoallergenic Boom Bright is made for sensitive, aging eyes. It’s designed to NOT flake into your eyes. That means it won’t flake on your glasses either.

  • 4. Add shape and volume to your brows.

    For thinning or unruly brows, try our Boom Brow™. This lightweight shaping mousse adds volume, shape and definition—while holding your brows in place above your rims.

  • 5.Don’t let your blush disappear behind glasses.

    Try a cream-based blush like our Boomstick Color® on the apples of your cheeks, then blend back towards your ear and down toward your jaw.

  • 6.Make your eyes pop behind your lenses.

    Use a creamy eyeshadow with a sheen, like Boomstick Glimmer, to draw light and attention to your eyes—without highlighting fine lines.

  • 7. Balance your glasses with beautiful lips.

    Glasses draw attention to the upper portion of your face. Balance your glasses with a flattering lip color like our Boomstick Color. (This doubles as lipstick and blush.)

Your signature look awaits…

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 Boomstick Trio®. 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. While other skincare 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 skincare 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.

 Cindy Joseph

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.

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
