Just look at this beauty.
Adele sure has turned tables when it comes to the make-up game.
Looking fierce as always, she actually knows how to set fire to the rain.
It’s sheer beauty rolling out of her face.
Her flawless eyeliner is so much more than just make up. However, no matter how hard we try, getting that Adele-like perfect winged liner is no mean feat.
Well, we’ve finally found an answer to the question we’ve always wanted to ask her:
“How the hell does she get it right, every single time?”
Her longtime makeup artist and hairstylist, Michael Ashton, who has also worked with Louise Roe, Hilary Swank, and Chris Pratt, finally spilled the beans about her perfect eye liner.
The Cut, New York Magazine, asked him how he creates Adele’s cat-eye. Here’s what he had to say:
Product cocktailing is key to achieving the intensity and opaqueness of the eyeliner. I always start by outlining the shape of the liner, working from the inner to outer corner of the eye with a black gel liner. I then work the product right into the root of the lashes and then build thickness gradually. Once I’m finished creating the desired shape, I use a waterproof liquid liner with a precision tip to intensify and refine the line, finishing by winging the end of the liner last.
I have a couple of fantastic eyeliner brushes I picked up in a little beauty store in Japan years ago and they have the perfect taper. They’re thicker at the bottom, which allows a quick application of product, but the tip is extremely fine so you can gently drag out the wing of the liner until it fades away into the finest point. If I do need to clean up any edges, I’m never without Bioderma Crealine and Muji thin cotton tips close by.
Well, now we know!
