As if releasing a single, selling one million tracks in one week, and beating Taylor Swift's record for most views in 24-hours for her "Hello" music video wasn't enough, this singer is at it again. Adele covers Rolling Stone totally makeup free, proving that going back to the basics is an all-around pretty good tactic. Although her go-to liquid liner look is her signature, it's nice to see her switching up her style every now and then.
Her songs might be heartfelt and beautiful as always, but Adele is trying a new fresh-faced approach to beauty this time around. The star looked absolutely gorgeous in no makeup and a fluffy white robe on her latest cover, cementing that she truly is as beautiful without that cat eye as she is with it. The singer has always been one to put her heart in her music and connect with millions of listeners, and now she's doing the same thing with her makeup.
In her interview with Rolling Stone, Adele talked about how she got back to the basics with this album, focusing on her own life instead of what was going around on in the pop culture world. Ironically, she has taken a simplistic approach to her style as well, according to the publication, and it reflects on their cover. Even without all that flawless winged liner and lovely pink lipstick, Adele shows that she is beautiful inside and out. Oh, and just take a look at those flawless brows!
This isn't Adele's first head-turning magazine cover, even if it is the first time she's so publicly gone makeup-free. She always manages to take a stunning shot with or without makeup, but her most recent cover could be a sign of a brand new direction. Just take a look at how different it is compared to her previous covers.
1. Vogue UK
With a nude lip and heavy lashes, this was about as close as Adele got to a makeup-free shot before Rolling Stone — aka, not very close.
She looked vintage glam on the cover of Elle's Women in Music edition.
The world got a glimpse of her without heavy liner on the cover of Out magazine.
4. Cosmopolitan Argentina
The rosy cheek and heavy liner is a classic Adele look.
She switched it up with black and white for her recent i-D cover, but kept her heavy liner as usual.
6. Rolling Stone
Her 2011 cover of Rolling Stonewas nothing like her most recent.
She kept on the makeup for this cover shot as well.
I can only hope to see more fresh-faced Adele in the future!
