If you are looking for some beauty inspiration, you needn't look farther than the red carpets at events like the Cannes International Film Festival, the Venice International Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival (the TIFF). As a beauty web site, it's our job to bring you the cream of the cream... here's our 10 favourite make-up looks from the many red carpet events at the 2013 TIFF.
It's true that we've been seeing nude make-up looks all over the place-- the stars were baring it all at the Venice Film Festival and we have seen a lot of this trend at the worldwide Fashion Weeks.
TIFF was no different-- loads of stars were showing off a look that we think is going to be one of the hottest for the fall season. Stars interpreted it in different ways: Gugu Mbatha-Raw went for a natural lip colour from a special collection provided by L'Oréal Paris. Another stunning example of low-key make-up was worn by Madalina Diana Ghenea. Try it yourself!
Bright lip colour
In perfect contrast to the first trend that we highlighted, bright lip colour is also hot this season! One gorgeous example at the TIFF was worn by Eve Hewson. She and Emilia Clarke both opted for slightly glossy fuchsia lipsticks. If that isn't crazy enough for you, there is the orange worn by Melissa George!
Daywear smoky eye
Eddie Malter, the official make-up artist for L'Oréal Paris Canada, told us that the light smoky eye look is one of the hottest on the red carpet. Our very favourites in Toronto were the charcoal look worn by Sanda Bullock or the romantic smoky look worn by Scarlett Johansson.
Lupita Nyong went for bold blue eyeshadow surrounding her eyes. Tracey Fairaway's style was a bit more retro. A cat eye look like hers is definitely a great option for daywear OR nightwear.
So... which is YOUR favourite?
