63-Year-Old Model Goes Boom

63-year-old Cindy Joseph began her modeling career at 49. She was working as a successful makeup artist splitting her time between Paris and New York when she was scouted for a Dolce & Gabbana campaign. Her career took off and in the last decade she's been photographed for Anthropologie, J.Crew, Shopbop, Elizabeth Arden and Aveda. Tapping into her work on both sides of the camera, Joseph launched Boom – a minimalist cosmetics line of three simple sticks. "Boomstick Color is that little kid lip and cheek color, that perfect mixture of pink, plum and red to recreate what Mother Nature gave us," says Joseph. "After working with thousands of faces over my 25 year career as a makeup artist, I discovered a universal sheer color that works beautifully on every skin tone – from chocolate to porcelain." –Cerentha Harris
