Many people were stunned when Holmes stepped out with 10 year-old daughter, Suri Cruise, last July for a performance of Broadway’s Finding Neverland. Many spectators and journalists noted how much Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s daughter looked like her mother. Recently, they were stunned even more when she posted a picture of herself at age six on her Instagram page—and she looks almost identical to her daughter.
In addition to that, she recently did a photo shoot for the cover of Angeleno Magazine, and looked dazzling in a black dress and clear skin with specially applied makeup.

Holmes has long been in the public eye, however, these recent images have generated a renewed interest in her look, style, and beauty secrets.
With many people noting how much Suri Cruise looks like her mom, they’ve also observed how good Holmes looks, especially after 10 years of parenting and being in her mid-30’s. She has sworn by a select number of beauty secrets and products that have helped her stay fresh-faced since she emerged nearly 20 years ago—ones that she still carries regularly in her makeup bag. An obvious one is Olay, as she is a global brand ambassador for them. She also swears by Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Cream Wash and the Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Moisturiser to keep her skin smooth. Other brands she favors include Chanel and Charlotte Tilbury—especially their mascaras, eyeliners, and lip glosses. These have all helped to create the smoky eye styles and the red lips that she’s often seen wearing at celebrity events these days.
Holmes has paid close attention to her hairstyle and retained virtually the same chestnut brunette color she’s always had. For this, she attributes Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream—a dynamic leave-in hair perfecter that when used with a straightener, helps retain her hair’s smoothness and strength.
Products aside, Holmes has also claimed that her style is ever-evolving and she is willing to try new products, styles, and techniques to keep herself looking fresh. Her choice of clothing for special events helps her determine the makeup colors she will choose to go with her outfit. She has little tricks like adding white eye shadow to her eye’s inner corners help give her eyes a brighter look. Overall, she mentions that her style is meant “not to distract” but to blend in with whatever public scenario she is in.
While many think Suri Cruise inherited the looks, style and influence from her famous parents, Katie Holmes has protested this, saying that her daughter is allowed to make her own style choices. She’s posted pictures of Suri enjoying classroom and social activities like making cupcakes with her friends. We are sure that in time, Suri will amaze the public with a fashion and style sense that is as equal to or greater than her parents.
