Like mother, like daughter.

Katie Holmes shared a sweet pic on Instagram Thursday of her daughter, Suri Cruise, standing next to her as they both applied makeup.

“#girltime,” Holmes, 36, captioned the pic.

The 8-year-old, whose father is Holmes’s ex-husband, Tom Cruise, is a girly girl who has given her mom fashion advice and picked out her own outfits since she was 18 months old.

“We are a glitter household and we are always dressing up,” Holmes said back in 2011.

In an interview with PEOPLE at the end of last year, Holmes admitted that motherhood has a steep learning curve, especially as her daughter gets older.

“My patience has grown, but between 4 and 6 p.m. I mean, wow,” she says. “Between tickle fights and glitter art, I try to throw in some manners along the way.”
