Adele’s Budget Beauty Secrets Revealed!

She’s famous for her signature 60s makeup style, and we all loved her look at the Oscars. Now Adele’s makeup artist, Michael Ashton, has revealed how we can get the singer’s trademark flicks – without breaking the bank. Michael used mostly high-end products from Giorgio Armani to recreate this gorgeous look for the Academy Awards – but the one budget product in the mix was Maybelline’s Studio Gel Eye Liner in Black. I love this liner – it’s easily as good as products twice the price, and proof positive that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look great. After all, if it’s good enough for an Oscar winning superstar…

Adele's budget beauty secret revealed as Maybelline Gel Eyeliner

Here’s the full breakdown of what she wore for the event.

FACE: Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup in #4; Lancôme Teint Miracle Instant Retouch Pen in #2; Smashbox Contour Powder; Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Powder in #4
EYES: Giorgio Armani Brow Defining Pencil in #3; Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad in #6; Maybelline Studio Gel Eye Liner in Black; Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara

LIPS: Giorgio Armani Lip Liner in #12; Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in #500; Sisley Lip Gloss in White Diamond

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! I also have the lowdown on what Adele was wearing on her enviably long nails - and yay! It's another bargain beauty bit!

Adele wearing Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cafe Au Lait

Yep, her nude creme nail look was achieved with a few coats of one of my favourite polish brands - Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in the shade Cafe Au Lait.

What do you think of Adele’s trademark look? And have you tried any of the products on the list?

I've used Lancome Hypnose & love it, but I really want the gel liner - Mine seems to end up on my creases at the end of the day!
I go for a similar look to Adele - Nice skin & winged liner x

I'm delighted that the liner is something really accessible to most people, it's great to see that a more pocket-friendly brand really is Oscar-worthy! Love Sally Hansen polish, their brushes are the best.

Love her nails! I know some people think they're a bit talon like but I adore them, the oval shape is so 60s.

I NEED to try Sally Hansen complete manicure now! If I can get my hands on a few bottles, I'll send one to you too! I've been thinking about creating a swap box for you so I'll fill it up in a few months when I'm in the US!
