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.”
Skin Care
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.
Chanel Pro Lumière Professional Finish Makeup in Nude 10 was massaged into the skin and polished using Cover FX #160 Cream Foundation Brush
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
