Katie Holmes has been announced as the first celebrity face for cosmetics giant Bobbi Brown.

Bobbi Brown officially confirmed the news that the actress has partnered with the beauty brand, E! Online reports.

Holmes said of the collaboration: "Bobbi is exceptionally talented and Bobbi Brown cosmetics is a company that we, as women, all turn to because it is makeup that is very accessible and makes you feel pretty.

"Sometimes it is just a lipstick or a blush that makes you feel like you can do what you need to do. Makeup is powerful and I am thrilled to be a part of this brand."

The brand's creator Bobbi Brown commented: "We instantly got on and talked about so many things from what it's like to be a busy working mum and what it's really like to start a company.

"I'm a big fan of her clothes, I've been a fan of her acting for years and there is not a more beautiful 'Bobbi' face than Katie. She looks amazing without make-up, she looks incredible with make-up and I just think she's a great role model for so many women."

Holmes is set to make her debut in Bobbi Brown's spring 2013 print ads.
