TIFF 2019 beauty

Hollywood headed north last week for the annual Toronto International Film Festival—also known as TIFF—and its bevy of premieres, events and parties.

As usual, I've got all the glam you need to see, including Katherine Langford's winged eyes, Priyanka Chopra's smooth blowout and lots more.

Here are the best celebrity beauty looks:

Katherine Langford

Katherine has quickly become one of my favourites for unique eye makeup looks like this one. (Also remember this, this and this!) It's a cross between a smoky eye and a cat eye, and perfect against her healthy, dewy skin.

Katherine is wearing: Highlighter

Priyanka Chopra

Leave it to Priyanka to bring the glamour. Wearing her hair loose and smooth dresses down the strapless gown, while heavy black liner and creamy brick lipstick elevate the makeup. It's all quite matte, but I actually don't mind!

Dakota Johnson

Dakota always manages to look effortless, and here, it's because of her messy bun with loose, face-framing pieces. The makeup is her signature berry lipstick colour with jet-black lashes and bare-looking skin.

Dakota is wearing: Lipstick in Matte Berry

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett brightened up her complexion with a juicy sheer pink lipstick and matching blush. Then, the light gold highlighter at the inner corners of her eyes ties in with her metallic dress.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Gugu is channelling the 1980s in fuschia lipstick with an iridescent finish. Purple eyeliner and a high, curly updo complete the look. So fun!

Kristen Stewart

Few people could ever pull off this exaggerated graphic eyeliner and shaggy bleached undercut, but somehow it's kinda cute on Kristen. (The Chanel outfit probably has something to do with that!)

Ana de Armas

Ana played up her amazing eye colour with smudgy winged liner and a generous dusting of tawny shadow (which blends into her blush). I'm just not a fan of the bleached eyebrows.

Ana is wearing: Lip gloss in Noce Moscata

Felicity Jones

Felicity kept it simple with side-swept bangs, softly waved hair and a slick of deep magenta lipstick. She's barely wearing any blush, and her eyes are emphasized with just a little liner and au naturel lashes. Love!

Shailene Woodley

Now this is a smoky eye I'd definitely copy. Shailene has black liner all the way around her eyes, with chunky lashes and sheer grey shadow. I love it with the messy hair and real skin. (Okay, maybe a little too real... she looks like she got a lot of sun this summer!)

Natalie Portman

We've seen this look on her many times before, but Natalie is still gorgeous in an elegant updo and smoky eye makeup. I especially love the extra-thick eyeliner, and the pink blush and lipstick makes it pretty.

Natalie is wearing: Foundation • Eyeshadow in Warm NeutralsMascaraBrow mascara • Lipstick in Whisper • Lipstick in Ultra Ambitious

Bryce Dallas Howard

Bryce was born to wear vampy berry lipsticks (remember this look?). Here, it grounds the half-up hairstyle and matte pink eyeshadow with a sense of sophistication. Notice how her upper lashes are jet black and chunky, but she left the lower lash lines bare. 

Imogen Poots

Imogen is just so natural and pretty—even with short baby bangs that are next to impossible to pull off! A little eyeliner and defined lower lashes are all she needs to dress up her undone waves.

Keke Palmer

Reverse cat eyes were the focus for Keke's look, with the inner corners dipping down into precise, graphic points. She wisely paired 'em with a slick updo and brown lipstick. The false lashes are a bit much up close, but okay from afar.

Keke is wearing: Foundation • Concealer • Contour in Brown Sugar • Blush in Body Language • Highlighter • Eyeliner in Blacquer 42 • Mascara • Brow pencil • Lip liner in Chestnut

Lili Reinhart

When your dress has sleeves like this, wearing your hair down is not an option. Instead, Lili paired a slicked-back updo with purple smoky eyes and fresh skin. Browns and blacks would have been too heavy (and predictable) with the white dress!

Lili is wearing: Foundation in 2N and 3NConcealer in Light and MediumPowder in Light BeigeEyeshadow in Amber NeutralsBlush in HologramLipstick in CaressLipstick in Flower

Brie Larson

Brie played it safe with her hair and makeup, but only because the back of her dress looked like this! The peachy-pink blush and lipstick are lovely with her skin, accented by that little pop of glow on her cheek. I'm just not in love with the shape of the updo (I prefer flatter on top).

Brie is wearing: MoisturizerFoundation in 20 and 30Blush in Rose PetaleEyeshadow in Clair-ObscurLipstick in Metallic Beige and Légèreté

Madeline Brewer

Madeline went for classic bombshell beauty, and to be honest, I find it a little dated. Maybe that's because I'm expecting looks like this from her! The kitten eyes and peachy makeup are fine, but I think it would be better if her hair was tied back.

Jennifer Lopez

Quelle surprise, JLo did her usual "ring around the eyes" eyeshadow and goopy, overdrawn lip gloss—this time, in orange tones to go with her yellow dress. I actually don't mind this from afar, it's just that the application is so heavy-handed. I will say, her new blonde lob is very chic!

Constance Wu

Constance is trying to out-glam JLo, don't you think? JLo does it better. While I do like this long, straight, shiny hairstyle, and even the glossy skin, the makeup—especially the blush—is way too heavy. She doesn't need this much!

Jessica Biel

Jessica chose one of the most minimal makeup looks at this festival. To go with her menswear-inspired suit, she rocked barely-there eye makeup with a sheer, matte peach lipstick and a neat updo. Not bad, but a little washed out.

Chloe Bennet

I like that Chloe's tawny makeup palette is an unexpected choice with her baby blue dress. However, with her Ombré colour, piecey waves and heavy false lashes, I find this a little dated. 

Chloe is wearing: Powder • Lipstick in Ultra Tender

Nicole Kidman

Lately, Nicole keeps giving us long blonde hair and red lipstick, when all we want is her red hair back and a little eyeliner! (Like this—her best look in recent memory.) Her cheeks are getting so inflated, they're making her eyes recede!

Nicole is wearing: MoisturizerFace oilSunscreen • Eyeshadow in Nude Dip • Mascara • Lipstick in Daring Red • Lipstick in Classic Red
