Few artists can be instantly recognised by their beauty look. There’s Bowie‘s lightning stripe, Amy Winehouse‘s jumbo liner, Ariana‘s ponytail and Cher‘s waist-length raven black hair. But if we were to name a beauty look that’s quite as iconic as Adele, it would have to be her signature winged liner.
The retro ’60s liner and coquettish dolly lashes are a look that the star has made her trademark since her debut in 2007 with her album 19 and her smash hit, “Hometown Glory.” And, 14 years later, the flick may have got a little slicker and more elongated, but she remains just as committed.
After a five-year hiatus, Adele re-emerged with a 20-second clip on Instagram, teasing a pretty piano riff and those famously winged almond eyes. There could be no doubt as to who both belonged too.
And to cement her return, the multi-grammy award winner took to the cover of Vogue, hailing her new album, 30, and some serious liner action. Adele was so taken by the work of her glam squad, she shouted them out in an Instagram post: “To glam, wardrobe, the crew, and everyone at British Vogue… In the words of Pat [McGrath, Adele’s makeup artist for the shoot] herself – ‘MAJJJJJOOORRR BAAAAABBBEZZZZ’”.
It’s undeniable. No-one does liner quite like Adele. And, within one hour of the release of trailer for her newest hit, “Easy On Me,” searches for “Adele Makeup” explode by 9,900%, according to Just My Look. Evidently, we all want in on the action.
Luckily, we have all the details on the products and hacks makeup legend, Pat McGrath used to create the liner the star wore on Vogue‘s front cover.
