SheKnows.com: What looks are celebs loving this fall?

Tony Masciangelo: Long luscious waves that are reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Step back in time and think 50s siren Lauren Bacall.

SheKnows.com: What’s the hottest look in hair for TIFF? In makeup?

Tony Masciangelo: Celebs are running on very tight schedules at TIFF so intricate hairstyles are pretty much a no-go. High-glam ponytails can make someone glamorous in an instant; that way you can be a bit daring with your makeup. Celebs this season have adopted gold and golden-brown tones with apricot cheeks. Don’t forget just a hint of pink in the ever-popular nude lipstick.

SheKnows.com: What looks are considered passé for this film fest?

Tony Masciangelo: Matte skin and hair that’s just flat and long. Everything needs to have a refined luxe quality to it; simple just doesn’t work.

SheKnows.com: What’s your number one beauty tip for women prepping for film fest parties?

Tony Masciangelo: Make sure your skin is well-moisturized and your hair is well-prepped for staying power. Ensure you’re using a dry hairspray like Nexxus Comb Thruwhile you’re curling; this will give hair a soft glamorous look. The last thing you want is for things to appear overly contrived and stiff. Glamour comes from all the small perfect details.

SheKnows.com: How can a woman look more confident on TIFF’s red carpets?

Tony Masciangelo: Strong makeup, sexy hair, a great bag, killer shoes and amazing posture. Oh, and a little attitude too.
