Ford Classic super model and makeup artist Cindy Joseph, the founder and CEO of BOOM! featured on Get the Funk Out!

On Monday, January 23, 2012  Ford Classic super model and makeup artist Cindy Joseph joined host Janeane Bernstein on "Get the Funk Out!" You can hear the entire show here.


Ford Classic super model and makeup artist Cindy Joseph is the founder and CEO of BOOM! By Cindy Joseph, a new and exciting concept in makeup that promotes natural, radiant, and ageless beauty.

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay area, Cindy’s father was a salesman, and her mother was a self-taught architect -- an independent woman who encouraged Cindy to go for what she wanted, no matter what.

As a high school student, Cindy spent hours poring over beauty and fashion magazines, practicing new techniques and beauty products on herself and her friends. Makeup was her passion. Then, during the 1960s, Cindy experienced a dramatic shift of perception, influenced by emerging ideas in the San Francisco Bay area. She opposed society’s growing emphasis on superficial beauty, and the self-esteem issues that ensued.

Cindy weighed her own desire to look her best against her opposition to the idea that a woman needed to “put on her face” to be beautiful.  She soon realized that she would have a greater influence on how beauty was defined if she was “in the game.” Using the skills and talents she developed while working with local photographers, Cindy began a career as a makeup artist for fashion and beauty in the late 70s.

Cindy's natural makeup style went on to influence the face of beauty for the next 25 years. Her talent of using makeup to emphasize and bring forward a woman’s character, personality and natural beauty, rather than masking or changing it, proved invaluable.  She worked for the Esprit de Corps ad campaigns with Oliviero Toscani, and traveled to Paris to work with European magazines and advertising clients.  Cindy arrived in New York at the top of the industry, working with fashion and beauty photographers making up the super models and celebrities of the time.

At the age of 49, Cindy was approached on the street by a casting agent to model for the Dolce and Gabbana campaign photographed by Steven Meisel. The project ignited a modeling career with Ford Models Inc., which continues to flourish today. Now, Cindy is traveling the world working in front of the camera for many of the same clients and magazines she had during her career as make-up artist.

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 is thrilled to continue promoting ageless, believable beauty with the launch of BOOM! By Cindy Joseph.

Cindy also writes a monthly blog, "Just Cindy", for Experience Life Magazine, as well as a regular column for the magazine’s print issue.   She brings a new voice to the magazine, with a fresh and provocative perspective.

JENNA TORRES

Listen to Jenna's full interview with Janeane Bernstein on the
"Get the Funk Out Show!"
 
 
“Vibrant and relevant New York singer/songwriter Jenna Torres delivers first-rate modern country.”
–       Maverick Magazine, UK
 
“Gentle and fragile yet powerful and emotional, Jenna Torres doesn’t waste one second proving to the listener that she is a force to be reckoned with.”

BIO
Singer-songwriter Jenna Torres is something of a contradiction – and not just because she’s a native New Yorker who sounds like a cross between Sheryl Crow and Dolly Parton. Soft-spoken and self-effacing in conversation, Torres is a force of nature when she performs live – an alt-country siren capable of bringing the house down with her powerful voice, burning eyes and beautifully broken heart. Her soulful style of songwriting is fed by the rich eclecticism of her life experiences, which include modeling for iconic photographers Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe; touring the country as a backup vocalist; the tragic loss of her dear brother; watching the twin towers of the World Trade Center collapse at point-blank range on 9/11; a painful divorce; and the challenges and rewards of being a single parent. 

After winning the heart of Warner Music Group CEO Edgar Bronfman Jr. with her 2006 self-titled debut, Jenna was approached by legendary music executive Judy Stakee and offered a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Since signing with Warner/Chappell, Torres has taken flying leaps as both a solo artist and a collaborator. 2009 saw the release of her second full-length, Thinking With My Heart, whose standout track “I Can’t Kiss Me” was made into a video by veteran No Wave director Amos Poe (The Blank Generation).  As of Winter 2011 Jenna has a Top Ten song on the Billboard Charts “Busted Heart” by For King & Country currently #8 and flying up the Hot Christian 100, AC and CHR Charts.  Jenna co-wrote the song with Ben Glover & the Smallbone Brothers…”Busted Heart” is the most frequently requested song on Air One Radio putting it in the #1 spot!! Throughout the past two years, Jenna has had the opportunity to co-write with some of the biggest names in Nashville, New York and LA.  Jenna is currently putting the finishing touches on her next release.
