We all know that the lady with the strongest makeup game in the music industry is Adele. From her insane contour in her "Hello" music video to her winged eyeliner that's always on fleek, her looks are always fire. Wednesday night at the Brit Awards, Adele's makeup game shown once more. It's not like we don't always know that the talented singer's look will be gorgeous, but there's something about Adele in a burgundy lip and gold eye that totally turns heads. Basically, Adele can do no wrong when it comes to makeup, and sometimes, like Wednesday night, she slays us to no end.
Based on the number of Adele makeup tutorials on YouTube, this isn't the first time the "Hello" singer has given us makeup envy. Even before her triumphant return to the spotlight with her album 25, she was inspiring winged liner tutorials when she was on the scene with her first two releases. Now, though, with the contour craze at an all-time high and the heyday of the YouTube guru in full swing, her makeup seems to be under even more of a microscope, and I'm certainly not complaining about it.
I totally agree with Nylon, Adele definitely took her classic look for a more vampy spin Wednesday night at the Brit Awards, and the change was totally brilliant.
That's why I'm going to give you my theories on how to get Adele's Brit Awards 2016 makeup look. Unlike Kylie Jenner, Adele isn't quite as outspoken about her product choices, but I've got a couple of ideas on how to recreate the gorgeous look.
Loving that lip color!
Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation, $37.00, Sephora
The thing about Makeup For Ever's foundation? It's designed to look amazing under cameras and in photography. This buildable foundation is perfect for flawless coverage.
Under Eye Highlight
Mini Miracle Eye Wand, $45, Charlotte Tilbury
Adele didn't go too heavy on the under eye highlight at the Brit Awards, but she's definitely got a brightened look happening. Charlotte Tilbury is a UK staple, and her eye wand is perfect for a brightened but not glowing look.
Subtle, Shimmering Bronzer
MAC Mineralize SkinFinish in Soft and Gentle, $32, MAC
Adele has definitely got a subtle bronze to her face. While it doesn't appear as though a cream contour was her go to for the night, she's definitely added a slightly shimmery bronze. MAC's mineralize skinfinish in soft and gentle is a peachy bronze that's perfect for paler tones like Adele's.
NARS Blush in Orgasm, $30, NARS
Adele's pale skin is perfectly suited for this cult classic. Orgasm is a staple in many makeup kits, and it's perfect to recreate this look.
Gold Shimmering Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan — Gold Digger, $6.00, Makeup Geek
Adele is typically seen in matte taupes and browns, but she's rocking what seems to be a shimmering gold at the Brit Awards. This makeup geek shadow is perfect, and it's affordable.
New York Color Liquid Eye Liner, $2.82, Target
This New York Color liquid liner is the holy grail of liners. It dries matte and won't budge making it perfect for that Adele flick.
Makeup Geek Eye Shadow Pan — Frappe, $6.00, Makeup Geek
Why a brown shadow if Adele seems to only be rocking a wash of gold? Looking closely, it appears that Adele smoked out her bottom lash line using a matte brown shadow. So, here you go.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, $23.00, Sephora
Adele lashes are most definitely coated in a thick black, and not only that, but they've got an intense thickness to them. While many would swear by the Benefit They're Real Mascara, this Too Faced gem is better at achieving the fullness of Adele's look.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, $21.00, Sephora
Adele's brows are full without being overdone, and the feathery look that the Brow Wiz can give is perfect for it.
Deep Red Lip
MAC Lipstick in Sin, $17, MAC
Sin is a classic shade for MAC. Its rich, red hue with blue undertones is amazing for getting that perfect lip.
All in all, Adele's look was vampy yet classic and a new spin on her typical look. While her staples remained the same, the little changes made a huge impact that totally had me slayed.
