It's a wrap for this year's TIFF—a.k.a. the Toronto International Film Festival—which means all the celebs left town for another year. (But Jon Hamm, feel free to visit anytime! Call me!)

You know what it also means? It's time to hand out some awards of our own for the best celebrity beauty looks.

Blake Lively

I love Blake's bold choice of lipstick with messy, textured hair. (She could ease up on the bronzer, however!)

Megan Fox

I appreciate when Megan tones down the sexy vibe. The tousled waves and strawberry lipstick are super-pretty.

Natalie Portman

Natalie's makeup is superb. I dream of achieving those perfect grey smokies, set off by a barely-there mauve lip and hint of blush. She always gets her makeup right, don't you think? So fresh.

Carey Mulligan

I want to put Carey in my pocket. Her haircut is adorable, and the makeup is a study in lavenders. It just goes to show you that you don't need dark, heavy colours.

Alexis Bledel

Notice anything different about Alexis? She's gone red! I love this shade on her, although the dark brunette was pretty too (it perhaps made her eyes and skin stand out a bit more). Here we see the lavender again on the eyelids.

Rachel Weisz

Rachel's hair could be in commercials, it's so glorious and shiny. Her makeup's good too—the tried-and-true brown smoky eye and lip gloss combo really suits her. Also note her perfectly arched brows.

Malin Akerman

Probably less than 5 percent of us can pull off a hairstyle this unforgiving. But when you can, like Miss Malin here, there's no better way to show off your flawless, glowing skin. I'm also impressed by her feline eye makeup, with the liner all the way around the eyes.

Jennifer Connelly

So simple but so stunning, right? Jennifer chose a bold purple liner to apply to her lower waterlines. I love this idea for evening because you don't really need much other makeup, but you still look dressed-up. The pulled-back hair keeps the focus on the eyes.

Eva Mendes

Eva's strong brows, long lashes, nude lips and peachy blush are gorgeous. Her softly backcombed hair gives her a nice bit of volume at the roots.

Camilla Belle

I've been talking a lot about eyebrows today, and so it has to be said that Camilla's are just THE BEST. As is her skin: it rivals Malin's in absolute flawlessness. Her hair is loosely curled but not too "done". And that's the theme for her makeup too—all I can really see is some mascara and lipstick. She doesn't need anything else! 

Who had your favourite (and least favourite) beauty look?
