This beguiling portrait of Grammy Award-winning singer Adele was recently released to promote her latest album, 21. Michael Ashton, the singer’s personal make-up artist, has created several looks for her that pull inspiration from films, street style, architecture, fabrics, music and more. This look was based on Adele’s natural assets.

“[Adele’s] timeless beauty is reminiscent of old-school Hollywood starlets,” said Ashton of the look. “For me, this is a modern take on classic beauty references.” And as for those eyes? “Adele always loves a lash! They have really become her signature.”
Skincare
Skin was cleansed using Bioderma Sensibio H2O and moisturized with a mix of Weleda Skin Food and Prescriptives Vibrant-C. Lastly, Ashton slicked Adele’s lips with Lucas Papaw ointment.
Foundation
Chanel Pro Lumière Professional Finish Makeup in Nude 10 was massaged into the skin and polished using Cover FX #160 Cream Foundation Brush
Concealer
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 was applied where needed for extra coverage and a sheer veil of Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in Light Bisque was applied near the inner tear ducts
Powder

Eye Liner
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink was applied with an angle brush on the upper and lower lash lines and M.A.C. Eye Kohl in Feline (limited availability) was drawn on the upper and lower waterline.
