As a teen in the late 90’s, I saw Katie Holmes’ face everywhere.
Her breakout role as the tomboyish, lovelorn Joey on the TV drama Dawson’s Creek catapulted her onto magazine covers and beauty ad campaigns, and her glowing, wholesome looks were a breath of fresh air. It was the era of the foundation-caked Lolita pop star (ahem, Britney/Christina/Mandy), after all.
So, it’s refreshing to read about Katie’s super low-maintenance beauty routine in Into The Gloss. How low-maintenance are we talking? Not wanting to wash her hair for an entire year is the standard Katie set. Don’t worry, Katie, we get you. It’s not gross, it’s efficient…right?
“When I was a little girl—if I could have—I would have gone a year without washing my hair,” admits Katie.
“I hated it, to the point where my sisters had to pay me to wash my hair.”
You know that when children are forced to fork out cash, it’s serious. (Post continues after gallery.)
Katie is always good for a makeup tip – I remember her telling YM magazine back in the day that she would hold a kohl eyeliner pencil over a match, which creates a truly smoky effect when applied – and she doesn’t disappoint in this new interview.
