Last night, the Toronto International Film Festival launched its annual movie marathon, kicking off with a screening of Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven, a star-studded remake of the 1960 Hollywood western featuring a multicultural cast rarely seen in the genre. The Midnight Mass programme also began at 11:59 p.m. with English director Ben Wheatley's follow-up to High Rise, the Martin Scorsese-produced Free Fire, which stars Cillian Murphy and last year's Best Actress Oscar winner Brie Larson.
With Toronto facing another hot, muggy day and a heat warning still in effect, TIFF began with the first day of Festival street, a public promenade spanning King Street between several major festival venues. But the heat didn't stop any of our favourite movie stars from putting their best foot forward.
Last night, Free Fire actress Brie Larson stepped out on the red carpet for the screening of her film looking spectacular as always, wearing a floor-length long-sleeve gown adorned with lace, ruffles, and almost every colour of the rainbow. Despite wearing quite the eye-catching gown, we were able to notice her warm makeup look that featured one of fall 2016/17's hottest trends: rust coloured eyeshadow.
Loving Brie's look as much as we do? Read on as we analyze it from head-to-toe!
TIFF 2016: BRIE LARSON'S RUST COLOURED EYESHADOW
We love Brie's fun and sophisticated look, but our favourite part about it is that she uses rust coloured eyeshadow on her complexion to bring out the reddish orange colour in her gown. Better yet, the Oscar winning actress didn't reserve the trendy shade solely for her eyes – the warm, fall colour made its way onto her cheeks and lips, as well!
GET HER LOOK
It may have been the sweltering heat, but as for her complexion, Brie rocked dewy, glowing skin that complimented the warm rustic colour on the rest of her face. To get her look, unify your base with a liquid foundation or BB cream that will give you lightweight coverage and a slightly dewy complexion.
If you'd like to create a dewy glow to begin with, start by spraying your face with an illuminating primer before applying any makeup. After you've unified your base, cover your complexion with a bronzing powder that will compliment the burnt orange shades of shadow and blush, and make peach-y tones appear more rust-like.
Next, take a peach-y, orange coloured blush, and drag the colour along the apples of your cheeks up towards your temples with a fluffy brush. For the eyes, use a rust or burnt orange coloured shimmery eyeshadow, and coat your upper lids, moving slightly up and outwards to create a cat eye effect with the shadow. Blend the colour into your inner corners and below your lower lash line.
After you've completed this step, use a darker shade of rust or burnt orange (closer to a red) shadow or pencil liner, and blend it into the bottom of your lower lash line and into the area on your upper eyelid where the cat eye was created. Blend with a fluffy brush for a more natural appearance.
To enhance the eyes further, coat your upper and lower lashes with mascara – L'Oreal's new Feline mascara is the perfect solution!
To finish off your entire look, coat your lips with a glossy shade of rust, peach or burnt orange lipgloss.
