Whether she’s running a marathon or walking the red carpet, Katie Holmes always looks great. But her recent smoldering eyes and pale lips had us so starstruck recently that we had to get tips from Physician’s Formula celebrity makeup artist Joanna Schlip on how to recreate Katie’s sexy, sleek, and sophisticated look. Start with perfecting the skin with Armani Lumunious Silk #5 foundation with a brush all over the face and set with a powder such as Physicians Formula Talc-Free Mineral Wear Finishing Veil for a soft matte finish. Joanna recommends investing in Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Night Dust for flawless eyes. Begin by applying it at the base of your lash line, using a windshield wiper motion to blend out and away from the eye. Next, add depth by lining the inside rim of the eyes with a deep black liner, like Prescriptives Softlining Pencil in Jet. Get the most length out of your lashes with celeb fave Shu Uemura’s Lash Curler. Finish deep black Diorshow Mascara. Dab DuWop Blushbooster on the cheeks and top off with NARS Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls and you’re red carpet-ready too!

Katie looked stunning, and I’ve been wondering about what lipstick she was wearing. But $23 for lipgloss? ouch! That’s way out of my price range currently. Is there a drugstore priced alternative?

E.L.F. makeup is even better than drugstore prices. Everything there is mostly $1.00. I love their products.

Revlon makes some gorgeous neutral lip glosses that are in the $6-$8 range at drugstores like CVS and Walgreens.

Wow, it’s amazing what money can do to a person. After marrying Cruise, she looks so much more beautiful and sophisticated. She was okay looking in the past, but now? Gorgeous. Man, I wish I had a movie star husband! :)

Thanks for recommending specific products, but one question. Joanna Schlip suggests investing in a 5-shadow kit, but does not indicate which shades go where – the instructions simply say “apply it at the base of your lash line” – which of the five shades is she referring to? Thanks again!

Actually I found a great gloss in Wet ‘n Wild’s Glassy Gloss Lip Gel. It’s a whopping $1.99 and has the same effect as Katie Holmes’ Lip Lacquer.

Sandra on

She just keeps on getting more and more beautiful. She has a great glow to her.
