Beauty Sep 14, 2017

Toronto International Film Festival, one of the top film festivals in the world, took place this week and we have our list of the best beauty looks at TIFF 2017 right here! 

The 42nd annual Toronto International Film Festival is currently underway. The city was pouring with A-list stars as the festival began on September 7. From Angelina Jolie to Priyanka Chopra, some of the most talented actresses in film walked the red carpet and sported some of the hottest beauty trends. The minimalist trend was pretty apparent as many celebs opted for a light colour palette with highlighted cheekbones.

Priyanka Chopra was the guest of honor at the TIFF Soiree in support of the Share Her Journey campaign. Her bronzed look was further accentuated with winger black eyeliner and loose waves sitting along the side of her face. Chic and subtle was her theme for the night.

DIY Tip: For brown skin tones, going all out with a bronzed look is quite doable and a chic option for a night out. Like PC, dab bronzer on the cheeks, apply a brown lipstick and complete the look with a winged eyeliner.

Angelina Jolie walked the Breadwinner and First They Killed My Father red carpets with her kids earlier this week. She looked elegant while keeping her beauty look simple and natural. She chose to go with a light concealer, mascara and a light pink lip color.

DIY Tip: To have a subtle hint of shine under the eyes, apply a brightening concealer like the Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Brightening concealer, which gives an under eye glow.

DIY Tip: If you want to just accentuate one feature, go for the eyes. Use lashes like KISS for added impact.

J-Law focused on the eye trends that have been popular this year. She went with a winger eyeliner and glitter under eyeliner and a ’70s updo. She looked like a fragile porcelain doll, given that she was at the red carpet premiere of her psychological thriller mother!

DIY Tip: Begin by drawing a winged line on the upper lids and then connect the under eye liner for best results.

DIY Tip: Use a bronzed mattifying powder all over the face after applying foundation and then follow with a bronzer on the cheekbones for the perfect contour. You can also apply bronzer as a blush over the cheeks!
