Celeb Wednesday: How To Do Makeup Like Adele’s Golden Globes or Grammy’s Look

By Contributor: Mahima

We are starting a weekly feature where every Wednesday I will do a Celebrity makeup tutorial. So for this wednesday I’ve chosen the very famous Adele. OMG she is just flawless. Her makeup looks phenomenal as always. And she just totally rocked it in the golden globes, I just loved her outfit and the whole look. Her eyes had that flirty shine and at the same time were extremely bold with her falsies and winged liner, her face was heavily contoured like always and her lips were subtle beige and pinky color. So let’s get started with the step by step makeup tutorial with as minimal steps as possible. My ladies get your brushes and makeup all ready to rock it with me. And yes put on your favorite adele track, I love “someone like you” what about you?

Start of with a clean face and apply your base makeup. Now let’s move on to the eyes.

Step 2:  now apply a shimmery eyeshadow on the lid and also on the brow bone for a subtle highlight. (TIP: use a patting motion to avoid fallouts) Product used- NYX eyeshadow in silk

Step 9:  its time to contour! WOHOO I love this step seriously, so ladies suck in you cheeks and make that famous fishy face and apply a dark powder in the hollows of your cheeks. And and and don’t forget the brush, although she aint wearing too much of blush but a light wash of color could be worn. Product used: contour- MAC harmony blush and blush- Maybelline cheeky glow in creamy cinnamon.

Adele makeup transformation tutorial

If you want her Grammy look then just wear a bold red lipstick (recommendation: MAC Ruby Woo) and you can transform this look to even her Oscars look. Basically its her signature look, the eye remain the same with dramatic cat eyeliner and full lashes, just the lipstick changes.
