American make-up guru Bobbi Brown collaborates with Katie Holmes for a new collection.
Post Cruise and finding her own place in the world, Katie Holmes is launching the Bobbi & Katie Collection with Bobbi Brown this September. The new collection will includes a brush set, a palette with eight eye shadows, two Pot Rouges and one mini eye pencil, in nudes and natural colours designed for modern women on-the-go. The palette was inspired by one of Holmes’ old pink and brown journals, reflecting her classic fashion design sensibility and complements all skin tones.
“I’m also interested in doing a fragrance,” she told Women’s Wear Daily from the Manhattan set of her latest movie, Mania Days, in which she stars as a manic-depressive poet.
Last January, Holmes bought into Alterna hair care and has since expressed an interest in doing more in beauty projects, stemming from her positive experience with both the beauty and hair care companies.
She cites how Brown herself is “so creative and so smart” and she’s “very inspired by her”, as the make-up guru listens with an open mind rather than dictates during the course of collaboration, which has turned out to be a satisfying working experience for the actress.
In turn, Brown said that Holmes is not just a pretty face but a true partner with a feel for what women want and need, and a great eye for colour and design.
With the divorce behind her and a little girl to look after, Holmes has her hands full with movie projects all lined up, including a postproduction with Days and Night, a modern retelling of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull set in rural New England and is said to be about to go into preproduction with Responsible Adults with Chace Crawford.
A skincare line with Bobbi Brown will follow suit, after the make-up collection debuts. - Patsy Kam
