With L'Oreal Paris as an official partner of the Toronto International Film Festival, it's no surprise that the TIFF red carpet is one of the best places to find this season's hottest hair and makeup trends. And while celebrities have been experimenting with everything from rust shadow to glitter and extreme lashes, there seems to be one thing each look has in common: a fabulous pout.
Yes, that's right. Each and every woman that steps out onto the red carpet may have a unique look of her own, but it always seems to be paired with a great lipstick (or gloss, for that matter) shade that makes us swoon. Whether it's nude and glossy, dark and mysterious, or classic and vibrant, the TIFF 2016 red carpet is the place to get inspired when it comes to finding the perfect lipstick shade this season.
So, without further ado, we're taking a look at some of the best lipstick shades to hit the TIFF 2016 red carpet so far!
TIFF 2016: THE BEST LIPSTICK SHADES SPOTTED ON THE RED CARPET
NUDE AND GLOSSY
Nude lipstick is an essential item that every girl should own. It's our go-to for everyday life, from the office to weekend outings, and can pull together any look without being too loud and over-the-top. It also seems to be the perfect beauty accessory on the TIFF red carpet, complimenting glamorous and sophisticated looks. We love the nude, glossy finish that Naomi Watts paired with her bohemian, vibrant purple dress, not to mention, Reese Witherspoon's soft and romantic shade of glossy pink. Meanwhile, Michelle Williams showed off another perfect neutral shade that falls somewhere between pink and beige.
Looking for a new lipstick shade? Nudes and light pinks compliment every woman, no matter what skin tone or hair colour you may have!
DARK AND MYSTERIOUS
With the arrival of autumn, dark, vampy shades of plum, brown, and even black are popping up more and more on the runway and the red carpet. While Dakota Fanning paired her golden shadow and pale complexion with a deep red lipstick, Anne Hathaway chose a warmer shade of brown lipstick that enhanced her brown eyes and hair. Don't be afraid to play around with darker shades this season!
CLASSIC AND VIBRANT
For their appearances on the TIFF red carpet, celebrities like Haley Bennett, Rooney Mara, Gabrielle Union, and Yvonne Strahovski decided to take a more classic approach to lipstick, wearing vibrant shades of raspberry red. While Yvonne showed off a pink-ish red shade that gave her a more feminine look, Gabrielle and Rooney went with a deeper shade of raspberry red. Meanwhile, Haley Bennett opted for a bright and classic shade of red that contrasted against her freckled complexion and blonde hair.
