A Look at the Clever Techniques Adele's MUA Uses for Fresh Eye Makeup

If there’s one thing you can expect from an Adele show it’s some incredible makeup looks. OK, and stellar vocals. And maybe a few tears, too (anybody else struggle to get through her latest album ’30’ without having a bit of a wobble?).

The singer is in the midst of her Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and to finish up the second weekend of shows, she shared some snaps on Instagram. Alongside on-stage shots, in which she’s wearing a stunning dress and a sleek yet bouncy half-up hairdo, Adele also gave fans a behind-the-scenes snap, in which she’s sitting in the glam seat.

While a pair of hands in the picture are fixing her sky-high ponytail (the work of hair genius Sami Knight), we can’t stop staring at Adele’s makeup. What’s more, we love that certain techniques have been employed to give her a serious eye-opening effect.

Firstly, the metallic finish on the eyelids, which you ideally want to focus the sparkly shadow mainly on the centre of the lids, paired with her signature thick, bold winged eyeliner to draw attention to the eyes. Then her false eyelashes are focussed on the outer corners for a slightly elongated effect, all while her lower lash line is kept clean to avoid making the makeup look too heavy.

All of these steps team up to create a look that is equal parts glam and sultry, equal parts fresh and bright. Just swipe to the fourth picture to see it in all its glory:

While her makeup wasn’t tagged in the post, we have no doubt that this look was the handy work of her go-to MUA Anthony H. Nguyen. Anthony has been doing Adele’s makeup for years and recently gave followers a glimpse at life working on the singer’s Las Vegas show:
