Katie Holmes Proves Vintage Glam Is Always The Way To Go

We regularly rock a vintage-glam face all year round, as we're part of a school of thought that knows no season when it comes to red lipstick and cat-eyes. That being said, the holidays are just about the only time of year when the ever-present festivities match the intensity of this makeup. Bobbi Brown's gorgeous new collection is proof positive that an Old Hollywood is still the holiday gold standard, with Katie Holmes as evidence. Girlfriend looks uh-mazing as the face of this new line — who knew our favorite fresh-faced, flannel-wearing starlet would grow up to wear a bold red lip as if she invented it?

A close runner-up to that lip is her eye makeup. The smoke-and-shimmer combo is a classic that's near and dear to our hearts. And, with that strong brow stepping in to keep things modern, we're pretty sure we've found our official holiday beauty inspiration.

There are infinite possibilities in this one eye palette. Though we're probably going to copy the look they've created on Katie Holmes first, we also spy the potential to create a truly fabulous punk-inspired eye situation. And, with a combination both matte and shimmery finishes, this is one compact that will definitely carry us through all the depressing winter months to follow our holiday exuberance. It's never too early to start planning how to deal with that.
Also: That. Lipstick. It's so pretty we're having the urge to eat it. That's a normal feeling, right?
