Adele’s Grammy gown may be getting mixed reviews, but there’s no doubt that the cheeky songstress was glowing. Adele, clad in a bold print a la vintage inspired Valentino, rocked her signature cat eye with high volume lashes and a soft pink pout. I just had to know, so I got the scoop on what products celebrity makeup artist and hair stylist Michael Ashton used to create Adele’s romantic Grammy look.
To enhance her flawless complexion, Michael applied Armani Maestro Foundation in Shade 3 with Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat to highlight the high planes of her face. For her statement eye, he created a thick cat eye using Maybelline Studio Gel Liner in Black. On her lids, he painted on Lancôme Color Design Infinité 24H Eye Shadow in Continuous Creme, a light matte beige cream eyeshadow in a crease free, smudge-proof formula. He contoured her eye with the Lancôme Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Coral Crush. He framed her eye using Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre brow pencil on her brows. After applying some serious false lashes, he swept on Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara in Noir Midnight.
Step 1: Prep
Apply the new Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray ($9.99 at drugstores) to wet hair before blow-drying with a medium sized round brush, paying particular attention to the ends to ensure they are bouncy and luscious. This heat activated spray will help ensure you build volume that will last but won’t be too sticky.
Step 2: Style
Next set in hot rollers. Once cool, carefully brushed through with a natural bristle brush.
Step 3: Perfect
Finish off the look by twisting the back section into a French twist and pin away from the face. Mist with Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray ($5.99 at drugstores) to ensure the updo stays in place all night long.
