For Adele's Academy Award visage, makeup artist Michael Ashton created a modern take on a classic look, focusing on her flawless complexion and high-volume [enhanced] lashes.
She was wearing the extraordinary Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup in #4. Ashton also used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Powder in #4 on her.
Ashton createe a luminous complexion by massaging Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup into Adele's skin. Then he added a sheer veil of Lancôme Teint Miracle Instant Retouch Pen near the inner tear ducts of the eye and high planes of the face. He used a large, soft powder brush to dust her T-zone with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Powder and used Smashbox Contour Powder to accent her cheekbones.
He also mixed it up on her eyes, using Giorgio Armani Brow Defining Pencil in #3 and Giorgio Armani's Eyes to Kill Quad in #6. He used Maybelline's Studio Gel Eye Liner in Black and Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara.
According to Michael, beautiful brows can make any eye. Brush them into place using clear brow gel and then, using feather strokes, fill and define with Giorgio Armani Brow Defining Pencil. Create a sultry eye by highlighting and contouring the socket with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad #6. Then extend the eye line with Maybelline Gel Liner and pump up the lashes with Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara. Your eyes will be the focus of your face, just as Adele's were.
For decorated but understated lips, he filled Adele's lips with Giorgio Armani Lip Liner #12. Then he finger-pressed Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro #500 onto her lips and finished by adding a touch of Sisley's White Diamond Gloss. She was a picture of radiance!
Other beauties wearing Armani makeup were Kerry Washington, who wore Lip Maestro; Jennifer Hudson, who was wearing Eyes to Kill Intense #25 and Rouge d'Armani in #202; and Sally Fields, who was also wearing Rouge d'Armani in #101.
You know when there's a red carpet, you'll always find Giorgio Armani's gowns and his makeup.
