The warmer weather won’t arrive for a few more months, but we’re channeling spring early by trying out Katie Holmes‘ radiant makeup in her latest Bobbi Brown campaign. The aptly-titled Nude Glow collection includes a range of high-impact neutrals to flatter every skin tone, and to create Holmes’ ethereal look, Brown began by prepping the star’s complexion with a lightweight foundation. “Choose a skin-tone correct formula that provides a flawless matte finish — it’s the ideal canvas for the Nude Glow look,” advised Brown. “If skin overly shiny or dewy, the makeup won’t sit well and can look greasy.”
Once the foundation was set, Brown moved on to the eyes, blending her eye shadow in Ivory ($22; bobbibrown.com) all over before picking up the Nude Eye Palette ($50; bobbibrown.com). She used the tawny matte shade in Nude on Holmes’ lids, then layered the Cement Sparkle hue on top for a subtle hint of shimmer. The candy-colored Ballet Pink Sparkle shadow was placed along the inner corners, and after blending the Dove Grey tone along the star’s lower lash line, Brown finished with a small amount of liner and mascara. A sweep of pink blush and the Brightening Finishing Powder ($52; bobbibrown.com) emphasized Holmes’ glowing skin, and as a finishing touch, Brown applied the Pink Gold Sheer Lip Color ($25; bobbibrown.com) directly from the tube. “The perfect shade of lipstick enhances the skin tone and gives the face a lift,” she added. “For extra shine or an evening out, apply a layer of Crystal Glitter Lip Gloss ($19; bobbibrown.com).”
