Katie Holmes epitomizes effortless, classic, cool-girl style. She can rock an oversized jacket like no other, always manages to find jeans that are *just* slouchy enough, and seriously knows her way around a cardigan set, yet she somehow never quite veers into the too-trendy category. The same can be said for her beauty choices. A search through the 41-year-old's looks over the years reveals a tendency toward pared-down, mostly neutral makeup, and Holme's favorite lipstick colors largely follow suit.
As with her outfits, she does incorporate a bold shade from time to time, usually opting for a bright red lip and leaving the rest of her face understated. But otherwise, Holmes relies on a handful of quieter, equally classic colors; think mauves, berries, pinks, and the occasional coral, sometimes with a slightly glossy effect (most likely thanks to one of the star's beloved Chanel lip glosses). While these choices are no doubt influenced by her longtime makeup artist, Genevieve Herr, you have to admit that her go-to shades seem right on brand for the chic celebrity — and most definitely worthy of adding to your own stash.
Ahead, five of Holmes' most-worn lipstick colors — plus a few formulas so you can try them yourself.
