Each year the Toronto International Film Festival kicks off the fall beauty season and sets the tone for what we’ll see on the red carpets through the season. We’ve put a few trends together that we think will be a huge hit this year at the festival.
Chocolate Brown Smokey Eye
Most smokey eyes incorporate a black shadow. Although the look has become somewhat of a classic, it can be a bit heavy at times. A great alternative is to use a chocolate brown shadow as your base colour. It keeps the smokey eye light, fresh, and perfect for those warmer, autumn evenings. The chocolate brown smokey eye would be a perfect evening look for one of our favourite actress’ Julianne Moore, who we’ll surely see at the premiere of Maggie’s Plan and Freeheld this year. The warm brown would compliment her skintone and trademark red locks perfectly. Stay tuned to see what she rocks on the red carpet later this week.
Copper Under Eye
The copper under-eye is a very simple way to add that extra bit of drama to a nude makeup look. A shimmery copper eye shadow (weather it stick or powder) is good choice for those evening parties and premieres too, where a matte copper can be used for daytime. We would love to see this look on Rachel McAdams or Emma Stone since it would definitely make their eyes pop! No word on weather we’ll see Emma Stone at this years festival but you can catch Torontonian Rachel McAdams on the red carpet at the Spotlight and Everything Will Be Fine premiers.
The dewy skin is always a big trend for every season. Especially when September feels like July (cue hot flashes and melting makeup). The great thing about the radiant skin look is that you can get away with a little-bit of face perspiration and still look fabulously dewy! There are two ways to achieve this look, the first way is to add a drop of radiant face oil to your foundation, and blend using a stippling brush for maximum coverage and maximum dew. The second way is to use a mineral powder with light-reflecting properties (MAC and NARS both make great versions) and apply with a small, tapered blush brush to the cheekbones, temples, top of the nose and cupid’s bow. You can definitley expect Jennifer Aniston to rock a dewy red carpet look this year though we’re not sure she’ll be in town for the festival
