Katie Holmes stunned the crowd at the recent Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol premiere in New York. We love her glowing skin, sleek brows, and effortless updo, but it was her eyes that reminded us of why she’ll always be the prettier half of TomKat (despite stiff competition from her well-groomed hubbie). The secret to Katie’s alluring gaze? Navy liner on her top and bottom lash lines along with a faint wash of shimmery dark shadow. Her eye makeup complements her monochrome polka dot dress in a way that’s not too matchy-matchy, and we think it’s a great twist on the classic smokey look.
You can easily get Katie’s look with a creamy liner like Laura Geller’s I-Care Waterproof Liner in Navy. Starting from the inner corners of your upper lash line, extend the line outwards and smudge to blend (you’re aiming for a sultry vixen vibe, so you don’t need to have the precision of a schoolteacher). Next, carefully line the inner rims of your bottom lash line. Follow by using a shadow brush to sweep a dark blue shadow like stila’s Dahlia on your lids up to the crease. Voila: you’re channeling our favorite starlet!
Even if you’re not a fan of navy liner, get inspired to update your eye makeup by browsing the Birchbox Shop.
