Katie Holmes Designs a Palette With Bobbi Brown: 'It's All About the Effortless Chic'

Katie Holmes‘s résumé just keeps getting longer. From TV star to Broadway actress, mom to model to haircare guru, there isn’t much she hasn’t tried.

And now she can add “makeup maven” to that ever-expanding list. For fall, the actress expanded her role as the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics to become a collaborator on a compact and a brush set, called The Bobbi & Katie Collection.

“Our objective was to do something that is very helpful to all women,” Holmes told WWD. “You can put it on in the back of a cab, you can put it on in your bathroom at home, you can put it on in the parking lot at your child’s soccer game. It’s simple, but we like to have special things that make us feel good, and I think that’s what this palette achieves.”

Comprised of eight eyeshadows, two Pot Rouges and a mini eye pencil (the latter of which Brown credited to Holmes and called “genius”), the palette is inspired by an old journal of Holmes’s and by her conversations with Brown. “These are things that will perk you up. And I look to Bobbi for that, because she’s an incredible makeup artist,” she said. “I’m always asking her, ‘What do I do when I’ve slept four hours and I’m going to a meeting? What do I do so I don’t look like I’m exhausted?’”

She might need even more of those tips in the upcoming months. She’s got another Holmes & Yang show coming up at New York Fashion Week and is filming two movies at the moment — not to mention toying with the idea of launching a fragrance. “I’m interested [in perfume],” Holmes said. “We all need a little help in smelling good, especially in the summer in New York City!”

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Katie Holmes, who was going for “breezy and effortless” at a summer bash — though Tabatha doesn’t think she achieved it.

Hey Katie, the invitation to Coach’s party at High Line said it was a “summer party,” not a “toga party.”

Seriously folks, what the hell is she wearing? It looks like she swiped some white table bunting from a banquet hall and got dressed in a taxi cab. Strike that. Actually, Katie looks like she is wearing her first assignment from the “Sewing for Beginners” class she took at Francine’s Craft World.

What did we tell you? The actress and spokesperson for Bobbi Brown cosmetics is showing off the brand’s new Navy & Nude collection, in stores June 15. And we got all the scoop on the shoot with Holmes and the products from Bobbi Brown herself.

“The collection pairs wearable pinks and nudes with navy to foolproof your look while helping to transition [your makeup] from summer to fall. I love the ease and versatility of it — your look can be whatever fits your personal style,” says Brown.

For Holmes’s campaign image, Brown added a little drama to the actress’s typically fresh-faced style. She created a “sultry” smoky eyes by pairing navy eye liner with shades of slate, cement and shimmering taupe shadow. To complement her eyes, Brown kept Holmes’s skin natural by applying a tinted moisturizer topped with a sweep of the new Pink Brightening Brick, a favorite of the star and pro, on the cheeks.

“I wanted to give Katie a nighttime look that she would feel confident wearing and that still represents her own style,” said Brown.

Not only is Brown introducing seven new makeup items with this launch, but she’s also created a deep blue nail polish to complete the entire look. “It’s the perfect accessory,” says Brown of the nail color, adding, “This collection is about the whole package — eyes, lips, cheeks and nails.”
