A View to a Kill: Adele’s Outrageous Grammy Lashes

Adele's Lashes

Music’s biggest divas were out in full force for the 55th Grammy Awards, but we only had eyes for Adele’s killer lashes.

The singer, who won her seventh Grammy for ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ and will perform her theme song for the James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ at the Academy Awards next weekend, showed off a flawless, milky complexion, a nude lip and an awe-inducing set of eyelashes.

Michael Ashton, Adele’s personal make up artist for the last five years, was responsible for the look and told us: ‘When it comes to creating Adele’s red carpet looks, I like to take references from classic styling, films and iconic images then reinterpret them with my own aesthetic. This gives an end look that is polished and current, but also softly elegant and timeless.’

Here is how he did it: ‘First, prep and prime to perfection! My secret to creating picture perfect skin is to massage Armani Maestro Fusion Foundation into the face and add a sheer veil of YSL Touche Eclat near the inner tear ducts, through the t-zone and high planes.’

‘Brows are always so important to complete any make up look. I use a clear brow set to groom the shape and then fill and extend with Lancome Le Crayon Poudre brow pencil.’

‘Eye shadow is kept to a minimum for this look, with just a subtle highlighter on the brow bone, followed by gentle contouring through the socket. I used Lancome Colour Design Infinite in Continuous Creme as a base, then created dimension using Lancome Colour Design Eye Shadow Palette in Coral Crush.’

‘The real hero of this look is the liner and lashes. Using Maybelline Studio Gel Liner in Black, start on the inner corner of the eye and increase the width of liner as you extend towards the outer corner finishing with a flirty flick.’

‘To give the eyes a polished yet understated feel, I placed false lashes along the entire upper lashline before building up lash density with Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara top and bottom.’

‘To finish the look, I filled in the lip with Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in Beige 101 working from the middle of the mouth and creating the desired shaped using a lip brush. Blot off the excess before tidying edges using MyFace Lip Liner in Nude and apply a slick of Sisley White Diamond lip gloss to the centre of the lip.’

    I absolutely love falsies but these just look silly. Too full and feathery.

    Besides her magnificent voice, Adele’s pretty face is her greatest asset. I think this set of lashes is a little silly.

    her eyes are close set so she often uses the trick of widening them via lashes to balance her face.
