5 Steps To Getting Adele’s Perfect Holiday Beauty Look
Ah Thanksgiving, a time to be grateful for everything we have, a time to reflect, and a time to be with family. Thanksgiving is all of those things, but let’s be real, Thanksgiving is also a time to eat until any semblance of that summer bod you had is gone and a time to get asked lots of personal questions from your relatives like ‘hows the job hunt going’ and the dreaded ‘whats new in your love life.’ But ya know whose relatives probably don’t ask a lot of annoying questions, Adele’s. Homegirl’s new single ‘Hello’ has broken too many records to count, her music video is already iconic and she has never looked more beautiful. So maybe, just maybe, if we walk into Thanksgiving dinner saying ‘hello, it’s me’ looking as fierce as Adele, our relatives won’t even remember to ask where our dates are.
Obviously, step 1 to achieving Adelehood is getting winged eyeliner so sharp it could cut that turkey leg your about to inhale. The 25-year old legend has never made an appearance without her signature cat eyes. Start with a gel liner like Maybelline’s Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner and then go over it with a liquid liner like Maybelline’s Line Stiletto to get that precise finish and perfect wing
Step 2 is to get some fake eyelashes so real looking it’ll have your relatives wondering why they didn’t get those genes in the family. Try Shu Uemura Fake Eyelashes, they’re thickening without being too in your face about it.
Step 3 is that nude lipstick that makes her look like a retro goddess. And, even better, this color won’t leave as noticeable of a mark on the wineglasses you’ll be chugging. Try Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm Stain in Complex, it’s a perfect peachy nude with a natural matte finish.
Step 4 are those eyebrows that are so on fleek, they could bring a tear to your eye, just like her music. We suggest Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color, which has a tiny brush to make it look like you’re almost filling your eyebrows in with real hair, and Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse to make sure those unruly eyebrow hairs stay in their place.
And lastly, step 5 is voluminous, glossy hair. There’s no way of knowing how that woman manages to have perfectly teased volume and shine to her hair, but she does. To attempt at that level of perfection, try Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Spray Mousse before you style for the volume and Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Serum to tame frizz and flyaways and add shine without looking greasy.
