Katie Holmes lands the April cover of Elle UK

holmeselleuk1

Katie Holmes lands the April cover of Elle UK, and inside the magazine she opens up about her six-year-old daughter, Suri, living in New York and much more.

She admits that Suri’s upbringing is much different than her own, which was spent on the western end of Lake Erie in her native Toledo. “Children are exposed to so much more than we were, I suppose every generation goes through that feeling, “Oh my God, it’s so different from how I grew up,’” she said. “I think the basics are very important: the number one thing is making sure my child feels loved. And good about herself. And that what she does and who she is, is special and important, and should be celebrated. And my mum always said, ‘No one loves you like your mother.’”

Katie, who gave birth to Suri in 2006 when she was married to Tom Cruise, admits that motherhood has changed how she views women. “I think all of our experiences bring us to a greater understanding of ourselves and help us realise what is most important. That being said, I have three older sisters and one older brother and I went to an all-girls school, and have always been a fan of women. I support women and all experiences give you more insight into others, as well as yourself.”

Celebrity make-up artist Katey Denno believes Mother Nature gave us everything we need to feel beautiful. Watch as she shows one of our favorite beauty bloggers, Alexis Wolfer from The Beauty Bean, how to perfect her pucker with Burt’s Bees 100% natural lip color.

I have always been obsessed with Burt’s Bees. If you look back over the years, you’ll find dozens of product review’s we’ve done on the brand, and we can’t think of a single one we tried and didn’t fall in love with. The thing with brands like Burt’s Bees is you just TRUST them, don’t you? It’s rare to find a brand that you know will be good, no matter what.

When I heard about Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Color, I was immediately drawn to it first and foremost because I’m not a fan of lipstick. I guess I should be clear…. I’m not a fan of my lips. If I had bigger, fuller lips, I think I’d have no problem with lipstick at all. But my lips are on the smaller side, so I don’t waste my time (or money) on lipsticks that will just be lost on me.

I am drawn to these lip products because they are Burt’s Bees, and they’re not JUST a lipstick. They give your lips gorgeous natural color, while having healing properties as well! You get color + all those amazing Burt’s Bees benefits!

Are you unsure what color would be right for you? Use Burt’s Bees Lip Shade Finder – to help you decide what color will look best with your complexion! No one knows color better than nature, and nobody knows natural lip color better than Burt’s Bees! From sheer, natural shine to rich, vibrant hues, let nature kiss your lips in your choice of intensity! Just answer 4 quick questions!

Check out this beauty tip from celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno: For natural lip exfoliation, cut a grape in half and rub it on your lips. The fruit’s juicy goodness will help alleviate dryness, and prepare your lips for whatever color combination you choose. #natureknowscolor

JESSICA BIEL – 2014 Oscar Awards

Makeup Artist: Kayleen McAdams, ck one color global makeup artist

Inspiration: “I wanted to do something really fresh, light and feminine. There were so many beautiful pastels in her dress, so I played with those tones.”

Face:

  • I prepped Jessica’ skin with moisturizing face and eye products, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, to give her makeup a good base to stick to.
  • Then, I used a damp Beauty Blender to apply ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 in fair 200, followed by ck one 3-in-1 concealer in light 1 underneath the eyes, around the nose, and along the edges of her mouth to even out her skin.
  • I used Charlotte Tilbury Sculpt and Highlight Powder on the tops of Jessica’s cheekbones, down her nose, and on her cupid’s bow.
  • I finished her skin with ck one cream + powder blush duo in breath 100 right on the apples of her cheeks and set it with the powder side of the product to give the look staying power throughout the night.

Eyes:

  • For Jessica’s eyes, I started by using a fluffy brush to apply ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400 all over the lid.
  • Then, I used ck one powder eyeshadow in expose and evolved on the inner corners of the eye and along the lash line at the outer corners.
  • I completed her eye with two coats of ck one volumizing mascara on the top lashes to pump up the lashes.
  • Then, I applied the same mascara onto an eyelash comb and combed through the bottom lashes to slightly darken them.

Lips:

  • For Jessica’s lips, I used Tarte Lip Surgence in Lucky to cover her whole lip with a matte pink; I also used this product in the center of her lips to give dimension and add moisture to her look.
  • Lastly, I gave Jessica’s lips a good coating of Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm to soak in while I did her eyes.
