Bobbi Brown Cosmetics released it;s new Navy and Nude Collection.  ”A sexy, fresh faced look for summer and beyond” states Bobbi Brown.  Most of the items in the collection are limited edition except for the new All Over Bronzing Gel that will be a staple to the cosmetics line.  Katie Holmes stuns in the new advertorial and showcases many of the collection items.

Face:  

To get the star’s even flawless complexion BB Cream SPF 35 was applied to her face (non-limited edition).  Finished off with Warm Natural Sheer Finish Loose Powder.

Eyes:

Instead of using a pencil, a matte powder was added to the brows.  It is a highly pigmented formula that can be softly added for definition and color without looking drawn in.   Mahogany Eye Shadow, a dark ash brown, was used on Katie’s brows.

Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in New Steel Ink (Limited Edition $23) is one of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics line that is a staple to the line.  However, this shade is the alternative to black and goes with the navy eye shadow.

No Smudge Mascara ($25) was put on for the finishing eye touch, the long wearing mascara is waterproof that defines and lengthens.

Cheeks:

What makes this Pink Brightening Brick (Limited Edition, $45) perfect for Katie and for others is that it has six blendable shades built in to the compact so with a swipe it can be a brighter pink (as Katie is wearing) or blended into a peachy pink tone.  An overall brightening effect that will shine against the skin.

Lips:

Rose Lip Liner was used as an overall lip pencil to give the starlet a medium rose lip before adding a touch of color and as a solid lip base.  Sailor Sheer Lip Gloss in a sheer pink red was added for an added shine and brighten the lip pencil color.
