The celebrities, the fans and red carpet fashions ended this weekend as the Toronto International Film Festival wrapped up. But the beauty trends we spotted on celebs during the festival are definitely here to stay. We spoke to Lucky Bromhead, a MTV makeup artist, and Ivy Lam, a freelance hair and makeup artist in Toronto, for some advice on how to take the beauty looks we loved from the red carpet to reality.
Their top tip? Go natural with your hair and makeup -- but don't stop experimenting with your look.
Keep Your Look Natural
Lam: I've seen a lot of stars really using their natural waves. A lot of my clients already have natural curls -- [to boost them] I go over the curls with a curling iron lightly. I've also seen a lot of volume.
Bromhead: I'm seeing three trends this year in terms of makeup: classic (wing-tip eye liner, bold lips); fresh minimalist (very understated eyes and lips with glowing skin and naturally rosy cheeks); and smoldering eyes (soft, muted smoky eyes done in a neutral colour palette with a nude lip).
...Or Go For A Polished, Glamorous Style
Lam: Other people are more sleek and chic. Their hair has a smooth blow out, more oil on the ends, which have been finished with a barrel iron. It's like a modern Hollywood wave in Toronto -- hair swept to one side with waves.

This is a very easy look for the office or for a night out. Lam suggests parting your hair to one side and using a larger-barrel curling iron to add bigger waves to your hair.Actress Ashley Greene arrives at the InStyle And The Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Annual Event during the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival at Windsor Arms Hotel on September 13, 2011 in Toronto, Canada.

Work with what you already have, Lam says; If your hair is already naturally wavy, embrace it. For Lily Cole's red carpet appearance, Lam worked with Coles's natural curls and added volume from the roots.

Jennifer Garner showed off another simple hairstyle on the red carpet. For this look, Lam suggests using TRESemme 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray before you blow-dry to add more volume to your roots. She also recommends the Goody Spin Pin to create an up-do or a bun.

If you find yourself running late in the morning, grab some bobby pins. Lam recommends blow-drying your hair first and adding pins to create a partial up-do.Actress Kirsten Dunst arrives at the gala for the film "Melancholia" at the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto Saturday, September 10, 2011.

A bright lip demands attention. This classic look from Sarah Gadon is a sexy and timeless trend, Bromhead says. "Keep your focus on one area of the face. If you are doing a bold lip, keep the rest of the face more understated. If it's the eyes you want to draw attention to, a nude lip will keep you from looking overdone."

This look was definitely the most popular trend on the red carpet this year. Olivia Wilde, Michelle Yeoh and Keira Knightley all played with a bold eye using natural, simple shades of colour. If you want to create a smoky eye for the night, do the eyes first, before your foundation and concealer, Bromhead says. Eyeshadow tends to 'fallout,' which can create dark circles under the eyes that will stick to your concealer or foundation.

Bromhead says the red lip is a trend that is here to stay. "There's no one perfect red. Take Madonna as an example. In the early 90s, she was almost always seen wearing MAC Russian Red, a very blue-based classic red. At TIFF, we saw Madge in a brighter, more orange-based red. Both looked stunning."

Choosing the perfect red lip is based on trends, personal preference and skin tone, Bromhead says. "Don't be too overwhelmed by red... but, like a good bra, I would try on a few before making a commitment. Bring a friend you trust for an honest second opinion. You'll love how powerful and sexy red lipstick makes you feel."Actress Stacy Keibler arrives at the 'Ides Of March' Premiere at Roy Thomson Hall during the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2011 in Toronto, Canada.

Make A Statement With Your Lips... Gradually
Bromhead: Red lipstick doesn't have to be so intimidating. Try putting it on with your fingertip and rubbing it onto your lip to create a softer, more "stained" red lip effect. As you gain confidence, try using the lip colour straight from the tube or with a lip brush. Define your lip with a matching lip liner.
Don't Overdo The Concealer
Bromhead: One thing I don’t love and I see on many red carpets is the over-use of concealer that's a good four shades lighter than the rest of the face. That reverse-raccoon look has gotta go.
