Adele always looks fabulous rocking her signature statement cat eye, both on stage performing to her adoring fans and when out and about at glitzy showbiz events. So when her makeup artist, Michael Ashton, revealed some of his top beauty tips this week, we were all ears. While talking to The Cut, Michael unveiled his top tricks that he applies on his celebrity client, which included a top under-eye concealer tip to avoid creases. Michael advised to use primer under your eyes before applying concealer, saying: "Dusting powder on top of concealer can cause creasing. Prepping concealer with a primer first does not."

"When it comes to creating Adele's red carpet looks, I like to take references from classic styling, films and iconic images then reinterpret them with my own aesthetic," Michael told us back in February "This gives an end look that is polished and current, but also softly elegant and timeless. "The real hero of this look is the liner and lashes!"
