We must admit we’ve had a bit of a girl crush on Adele for a while now. So when we saw her looking all glamorous and gorgeous when performing at the BRITs the other week, we couldn’t help but wish we kind of looked like her.

Adele has made the flirty 50s flick her trademark and we’re sure many brides-to-be are wondering how they can copy the singer’s look for their own time in the spotlight, their wedding day. Wonder no more! With the help of international celebrity and bridal make-up artist Helen Kalli, here is a step-by-step guide on how to re-create Adele’s beautiful make-up (just scroll down below the image),

Firstly use Shu Uemura’s UV under base BB mousse £29 for smoothing out the skin and helps hold onto makeup.

Chanel ‘s Vital Lumiere Satin finish Foundation £33 is great for giving a dewy, fresh faced skin. It has a medium buildable coverage and works well when applied with a brush! This is giving Adele that beautiful fluid skin – perfection!

Always set your foundation with a translucent powder, I love Ben Nye colourless powder; this will give you longevity and a shine free face!

Apply Lancôme’s Ombre Absolute Momo Radiant Smoothing Eye shadow in Moonlight £16.50 all over the lid and under the brow, then use Laura Mercier’s Fresco on the crease to give definition.

Then use a gel liner like Maybelline’s Eye Studio Lasting Drama £5.99 to create a sultry feline eye. I would apply with a flat liner brush rather than a pointed brush, as this will help you to get a straight line. Always do the eye you find harder to do first, as this will help when matching them up!

Lash on with Eylure Naturalites False Eyelashes Glamour £5.35 for the ultimate red carpet finish!

Use Shu Uemura’s Glow on Blush £9.75 Pearl Pink on the apples on the cheeks.

Adele has perfectly groomed brows! This is key to frame the face. I would recommend using a powder as it gives a softer look and is easier to use rather than pencil. Laura Mercier’s Brow duos are fab!

Use Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lipshine in Aventure £23 Adele’s kept it soft which is perfect, but you could go for a soft red if you prefer!

If you want to learn for yourself how to create Adele’s look or a look that you have in mind for your wedding day why not book yourself onto one of Helen’s make-up masterclasses.
