    It’s hard to watch Adele’s Hello music video without wondering just how she gets her flicked eyeliner so darn perfect.

    But, if you’ve struggled and failed to do the perfect cat eye, it’s time to get excited. Because Adele’s actual make-up artist has filmed a complete eyeliner tutorial with Lisa Eldridge, to help us all get the look.

    After being inundated with requests, makeup artist and beauty blogger Lisa reached out to Michael Ashton. He’s been creating hair and make-up looks for Adele for the past nine years.

    ‘This is a really lovely example of a performer and make-up artist really working together and collaborating to create a signature look,’ says Lisa.

    ‘I get asked a lot to do an Adele make-up tutorial, I think it’s one of the most requested. [But] for me, the only way to do this is to reach out to the original artist. The person who created that look.’

    The result? A stunning tutorial from Michael, and cat eyes for everyone!
