TIFF 2016 makeup trend: dark eye makeup takes over the red carpet

by Paige Exell -

With the Toronto International Film Festival in full swing, we're taking note of the fashion and beauty looks that A-listers are bringing to the red carpet. To kick off the festival, actress Brie Larson opted for rust coloured eyeshadow that gave us a sneak peak at one of autumn/winter's hottest beauty trends.

Meanwhile, actresses Haley Bennett, Elizabeth Chambers, and Zhang Ziyi all adopted up-dos for their appearances on Toronto's red carpet, keeping one of summer 2016's favourite hairstyle trends alive.

The latest runway makeup trend to hit the red carpet? Dark eyeshadow, as worn by Reese Witherspoon, Riley Keough, and Scarlett Johansson this past weekend. While Reese adopted a subtler approach to the trend, Scarlett and Riley wore their own versions of the classic cat eye, inspiring us with many different ways to rock dark eye makeup this chilly season.

Ready to rock the daring look like these celebs? Get The Look is showing you three different ways to wear it, inspired by the TIFF 2016 red carpet!

TIFF 2016 MAKEUP TREND: DARK EYE MAKEUP

SLIGHTLY BLURRED

American actress Reese Witherspoon hit the Toronto International Film Festival red carpet on September 11th for the premiere of Sing looking dazzling as always in a pink and silver off-the-shoulder mini dress. She paired with the look with nude strappy heels and wore her hair in voluminous curls that brushed against her bare shoulders.

Her makeup look was subtle, yet more daring than usual, as she paired her classic rosy complexion and glossed lips with dark eyeshadow blended around her eye for a more glamorous look. If you aren't willing to try an over-the-top graphic liner look, try this subtle look like Reese.

Simply blend a dark grey or black eyeshadow into the outer corners of your upper lids, then spread it to your lower lash line as well. Touch up the dark areas by blending a dark liner pencil into your lash line, then finish off with a few coats of voluminous mascara.

GRAPHIC

Meanwhile, actress Riley Keough attended the September 11th screening of American Honey, wearing a dark eye makeup look that most wouldn't dare to try: graphic liner. Wearing a sheer black long-sleeved gown adorned with small pearl embellishments, Riley went for a gothic-chic look, and finished it off with a thick swipe of black liquid liner across her entire upper lids.

If you're daring enough to try her look, start off by drawing a thin line from the outer corners of your eyes, up and out towards the end of your brow with a black liquid liner pencil. Once you've created this line, trace your upper lid along your lash line starting at the inner corners to meet the line you created. Next, trace the crease of your hair with the liner, moving from the inner to outer corners to meet the point of the cat eye you have created. Finish off by colouring in the entire outlined area with the liquid liner.

Remember to keep the rest of your complexion natural to avoid makeup overkill!

CLASSIC FLICK

Blonde bombshell and actress Scarlett Johansson also attended the September 11th screening of Sing where she turned heads in a sheer red long sleeved mini dress. The look was classic and given a feminine touch with a decorative neck bow, embellished black heels, and classic feline flick on her eyelids.

If you're looking for a more timeless, classic look like Scarlett, use a black liquid liner to create a thin flick that runs from the outer corners of your eyes and up and out towards your temples and end of brow. Compliment your feline flick with white iridescent shadow in your inner corners, a touch of mascara, and a nude coloured lip gloss!
