People tried to recreate Adele’s makeup look without a mirror

Apparently, along with moving the world with her powerful vocals, Adele has some killer cat-eye makeup that is pretty hard to imitate.

Adele’s music is listened to worldwide. Her songs of love and heartbreak have quickly pushed the singer to diva standards. Some of you might have been so caught up in her emotional songs that you forgot to notice her makeup! Well, now’s your chance.

Adele’s makeup artist actually has a video dedicated to explaining how he does her eyeliner. With nearly two million views, this tutorial demonstrates that people love Adele for more than her heart-wrenching ballads.

Adele’s eyes are such a big deal that Time Magazine even wrote about them! According to Time, “The step-by-step instructions require several different products, a variety of skilled brush maneuvers and some patience to achieve the desired effect, but if you end up looking like Adele at the end, it seems worth it.”

While Adele’s eyes are pretty smokey and sexy with all that eyeliner, I would love to see her tone down the makeup. For a gal known for passionately baring her soul in her music, what would it hurt to do the same with her face?

As Amy Schumer’s hashtag campaign stresses, girls don’t need makeup. Adele’s changing the world with her music, why does her makeup matter?

Clearly, my opinion is in the minority.

At a festival in Glastonbury where Adele was headlining The Guardian recently ran a story. They asked fans to attempt her famous eyes without a mirror. Check out the results below.
