Katie Holmes made headlines when she was named the first-ever celebrity face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics back in September, and now we finally get a glimpse of the star’s gorgeous ad campaign.

The normally fresh-faced actress works a sexy smoky eye — which we plan on replicating this weekend — in the advertisement for the brand’s new Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks (in stores in February for $28 each). Pretty pink lips, loose waves and a statement necklace complement the dramatic makeup effect.

It turns out Holmes was a fan of the makeup company long before she started working with the team. “[Bobbi Brown’s] color palettes aren’t extreme, so when I first started wearing makeup it felt comfortable and I didn’t feel like I had too much on,” Holmes says in a statement.

She adds that she also admires Bobbi Brown the person, as well. “I met her, and she is just a lovely person — so generous. I think that it’s so exciting what she’s built with this company. She’s an incredible woman. So I’m thrilled on so many levels.”

Though this is Holmes’s first foray into the makeup business, she’s no stranger to the beauty world: She starred in a series of short videos for John Frieda hair care in 2011. Tell us: What do you think of Holmes’s Bobbi Brown ad?

I wish they had photo-shopped the underside of her arm less obviously.

She reminds me of Jaclyn Smith in this photo. No doubt, Katie is a beautiful woman!

She is a lovely woman but we also have to remember that these pictures are Photoshopped to be perfect, whether it be adding to something or taking away and reshapping. I do think she deserves this job.

She looks great but… Photoshop much?

I agree @PatriciaSotll. The shoulder definitely looks photoshopped. She can sure make a pretty picture though. I am not familiar with the cosmetic line but I will be looking at it now.


I’ve seen pictures of her w/o makeup and she looks prettier that way. This over-photo-shopped picture takes away from that.

Wow – she looks beautiful.
