A message for Mrs Katie Holmes…

Wed, 29 June 2011 4:27PM

Dear Katie

As a long time fan, I felt I needed to drop you a quick note to let you know how ridiculously fabulous you’re looking of late. Sometimes, it’s easy for us celeb watchers to get carried away with the slew of tabloid shots we see of you snapped up looking exhausted, usually after a long day on set, or running around after Suri.

That’s why, when I spotted this pic of you looking all golden and glowy and exceptionally healthy, I just had to share it with our Primpettes, who also happen to be the friendliest bunch of beauty enthusiast on the entire planet.

Katie, your relaxed, but off-the-charts shiny, long waves have restored my faith in hair extensions, and I’m pretty sure your golden skin, and nude-ish-looking makeup has made the entire nation’s hump day a happy one.

Gosh, it’s good to have you back!

Keep up the good work,

Eliza x

Katie Holmes

Primpettes, if you’re keen to follow Katie’s lead, here’s what you’ll need:

The skin:

For a foolproof at-home tan, every time: St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body $33.95.

For the same highlighted-in-all-the-right-places complexion: Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Shimmer, $45.

The Makeup:

For the same golden-pink cheeks: Nars Blush in Super Orgasm, $62.

For seriously long lashes, minus extensions or falsies: Revlon CustomEyes Mascara, $23.95.

The Waves:

For the same  softly-tousled at the ends locks, without using a curling tong: Lady Jayne Wooden Radial 100% boar Bristle Brush, $21.99.


Is this this best you’ve seen Katie look in yonks, or what?

I know I’ve said it a couple of times before, but don’t you think Katie looks a tad like Kate M?

What do you think of her faux tan? Is it too dark, or just right?

What’s your all-time favourite fake tan?

Wow! That’s a LOT of questions.

    Kate Holmes looks stunning here; so glamorous.

  • Posted by: georgiamae83 Devotee // Wed, 29 June 2011 04:49pm

    Wow, Katie Holmes looks amaze-balls! I’m not keen on the hair extensions for myself, but love her bronzed and healthy glow and the barely there make up. Thanks for the tips Eliza!

  • Posted by: louweeez Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 04:53pm

    Wow she looks good!

    Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Shimmer is longer available at Mecca. You all keep mentioning it but it’s very very hard to find… please stop teasing us (me) with unobtainable prods :(

  • Posted by: Louise-1295043242 Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 04:57pm

    wow she is really looking spectacular here! much better than her washed out unhappy face she has regularly been seen wearing!

    really itching to get that Nars blush, everyone is talking about it!

  • Posted by: ellyloves Devotee // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:00pm

    Wow she looks amazing!

  • Posted by: soMuchPretty Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:03pm

  • Posted by: Fashionista8P Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:07pm

    im not sure i like fake tans, but she look good

  • Posted by: Julie Rodwell // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:23pm

    Thats the Katie I remember, she looks great! I don’t do fake tan as I probably do it probably as I don’t won’t to do a Lindsay job>

  • Posted by: bluebird Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:23pm

    Katie looks absolutely stunning here! Her tan isn’t too dark and she looks as if she is glowing with health. Not a fan of hair extensions.
    I think she’s prettier than Kate M, I think it’s her prettier eyes.

    Don’t do fake tan.

    She looks well rested for a change. She’s got a great glow about her and her hair extensions look really natural.

  • Posted by: blondie2010 Enthusiast // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:54pm

    Ahhh old school Katie Holmes. Love!

  • Posted by: Luci // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:58pm

    She looks like she’s 21 again and starring in Dawson’s Creek- stunning, youthful, yet so simple and classic!

  • Posted by: gabriella // Wed, 29 June 2011 05:58pm

    WOW. HOT

  • Posted by: berry // Wed, 29 June 2011 06:58pm

    She does look amazing! Love the hair – sooo shiny!! I think she could do with more colour on her lips but other than that pretty flawless. I agree, she does look kinda like Kate M!

  • Posted by: Onyx // Wed, 29 June 2011 07:18pm

    Katie Holmes looks absolutely stunning in this picture!It reminds me of a young Katie from “Dawson’s Creek”! :)

  • Posted by: beautybabe111 Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 09:49pm

    I love her makeup here she’s gorgeous, always been a fan of her!

  • Posted by: nidhi12345 Enthusiast // Wed, 29 June 2011 09:55pm

    Gosh I like her…she always look so cute and gorgeous… :)

  • Posted by: xKMS Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 10:25pm

    she looks amazing here! perfect glossy hair and tan, ad she really does look a bit like Kate M.. same classic look

  • Posted by: dellie Devotee // Wed, 29 June 2011 10:56pm

    she does look gorgeous here with her straight hair, but i also saw some pics recently and she was bone thin – in a really really bad way!!

  • Posted by: chicklet Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 11:08pm

    She looks beautiful. Unfortunately you also need the perfect bone structure and skin to achieve her look!

  • Posted by: Tina-1291133452 Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 03:25am

    i have always loved katie :) she looks amazing! so so glowy!

  • Posted by: Karen-1298334769 Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 08:36am

    She does look fabulous! What a difference it makes for her to have long hair and a lovely tan. I’m a big fan of Sugar Baby mitts for a great tan.

  • Posted by: kiarra.taylor Supporter // Thu, 30 June 2011 10:11am

    Wow, Katie looks amazing here, I may just have to attempt to achieve the entire look this very evening.

  • Posted by: MissMel Enthusiast // Thu, 30 June 2011 10:48am

    Devine! She hasn’t aged, and this look is totally working for her. I am super jealous of those luscious long locks – damn my super fine tresses!

  • Posted by: MayaS Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 11:16am

    I’m not the biggest Katie fan (too young for Dawson’s!) but I have to admit that when she gets it right, by golly she gets it RIGHT! Phwooar Katie!

  • Posted by: bexbanks // Thu, 30 June 2011 11:28am

    She is oh so stunning…

  • Posted by: lovetoplay Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 11:32am

    She does look great here – she should never cut her hair short again! I love it long on her (whether it be bake or not) – it suits her. I love her colouring here too (whether it be fake or not!.)

  • Posted by: loopylexy Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 12:40pm

    Wow she looks amazing! I love the tan, i love the eyelashes, I love the hair!!

  • Posted by: sumaya Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 01:41pm

    I think Katie looks so much better with long hair.

  • Posted by: DebstarDesigns Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 01:50pm

    WOW! I’m not a fan of Katie’s but she looks amazing here. She looks fresh, relaxed and healthy. Love it!

  • Posted by: Elmo Enthusiast // Thu, 30 June 2011 01:59pm

    It is so amazing to see Katie finally looking awesome again! I felt like ever since she met Tom, she’s been looking and dressing like someone a good 10-15 years older than her. Not saying she needs to be out there in mini skirts and OTT hair and make up – but GOSH she looks incredible in this pic! Love, love, love!

  • Posted by: strawbsundae Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 05:38pm

    Katie looks amazing in that photo! I think long hair suits her.

  • Posted by: Glush // Thu, 30 June 2011 08:05pm

    I love Katie’s hair, and her skin has the perfect amount of tan/glow! She looks a lot like Kate M!

  • Posted by: katiekates Devotee // Thu, 30 June 2011 08:55pm

    she looks fantastic! i love hair hair, it looks so shiny and healthy!

  • Posted by: Blazing_Bernie Supporter // Fri, 1 July 2011 10:51am

    She is beautiful… the mid brown hair (instead of dark dark) looks amazing on her. I feel like getting out my Dawson’s Creek dvds!

  • Posted by: chloe.x Master Fan // Fri, 1 July 2011 07:28pm

    Gosh she looks good here! And now that you mention it, she does look an awful lot like Kate Middleton – not that looking like her would be a bad thing though! :)

  • Posted by: Kell Supporter // Sat, 2 July 2011 09:22pm

    She is looking better than ever. Her hair looks so pretty!

  • Posted by: Bridals // Mon, 4 July 2011 07:17pm

    I agree she is looking stunning lately. She is possibly getting better with age!

  • Posted by: MissPaigeLauren Devotee // Tue, 5 July 2011 10:32am

    I think that Katie looks a lot like kate M, i asked my firend this and she told me i was going crazy? well we know who is right (me). Katie looks so natural and golden i love her!

  • Posted by: Lilyofthevalley Enthusiast // Sun, 14 August 2011 10:29am

    i agree Becstar totally !!
    Katie is just super glamorous and divine human being.Go girl. I do think though that her tan is way too much , Wish i had her hair.

  • Posted by: Fashionista8P Master Fan // Mon, 19 September 2011 11:58am

    she always looks great with her long hair but actually she isnt so stunning here, obviously still great but nothing that really draws my attention

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Wed, 9 October 2013 03:33pm

    Katie does look gorgeous in this shot. She looks radiant and her hair looks so healthy.

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Fri, 15 August 2014 10:18am
