Makeup: Michael Ashton for Marc Jacobs Beauty& Ole Henriksen
Inspiration: “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”, says Ashton. “This gives an end look that is polished and current, but also softly elegant and timeless.”

Tips/techniques for how to get the look at home:
Skin prep: First, prep and prime to perfection! Cleanse skin using Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser by massaging product into dry skin before removing using Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths.
For an under eye area that looks well rested and ready for the red-carpet, finger pat a small amount of Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Crème to the under eye area and leave to work its magic while you work on the rest of the face.
To plump and even skin texture, mix a few pumps of Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil into a small amount of Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Crème and then work into the skin with fingertips in a lifting motion outwards from the center of the face.
Makeup: for flawless cashmere-finish skin, start by massaging Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer between the hands and then press into the skin to hydrate before buffing Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Oil-Free Foundation in 26 Bisque Medium using Marc Jacobs Beauty The Face II – Sculpting Foundation Brush No. 2 for a seamless application.
Add extra dimension to the face with Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen In 2 Wake-Up Call adding a sheer veil of product to the under eye area through the t-zone and high planes of the face before creating added depth with Marc Jacobs Beauty #instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder In Dream Filter 20 under the cheekbones and around the perimeter of the hairline.
Brows are always so important to complete any make up look. Use Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Tamer Grooming Gel to groom the shape and then fill and extend with a combination of Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Longwear Defining Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe 2 and Ash Brown 4.
Eye shadow is kept to a minimum for this look. Apply a subtle wash of Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop Stick Eyeshadow in Volver 402, a peach champagne shimmer shade, across the eyelid and follow by gently contouring through the socket using the medium tone shadows from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye Con No 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette in The Lolita 206.
The real hero of this look is the liner and lashes! Using Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer, start on the inner corner of the eye and increase the width of liner as you extend towards the outer corner, finishing with a feline flick.
For eyes that have a polished yet understated feel, place lashes along the entire upper lashline before building up lash density with Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
To finish the look, a perfect pout is a must! Start by filling in the lip with Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème in Slow Burn 458, a creamy nude rose, and Fawn Over Me 452, a peach nude, working from the middle of the mouth and creating the desired shape using a lip brush. Blot off the excess before tidying edges using lipliner and reapplying another slick of color.
Give make up added extra staying power and a fresh youthful texture finish by lightly misting the face with Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Facial Water, which will help set make up and infuse the skin with soothing extracts and vitamins.
