When you ponder prolific British songstress Adele there are a few things that come to mind.
First and foremost, that voice. Secondly, her signature cat eye. And lastly, her flawless beat.
Case in point? Adele looked practically picturesque belting a repertoire of melancholic ballads for tens of thousands of fans at the two-day BST Hyde Park concert this week.
But how did the singer manage to maintain her velvet porcelain makeup base throughout her set you ask? Well, turns out the answer has been hiding in plain sight.
Adele’s makeup artist Anthony Nguyen shared an image of the pair backstage during a quick pre-show touch-up, and we spied a very unusual looking makeup brush in the artist’s hand.
This soft, dense brush is packed with patented engineered CosmeFibre brush fibres that seamlessly diffuse and blend powder, cream and liquid makeup products.
Despite the brush’s exxy price tag (it usually retails between $120 to $150), it’s constantly sold out online and boasts glowing reviews too.
One Revolve customer admitted she “wasn't sure about all the hype, but it's fantastic.”
And if you take a gander at the brush’s Google reviews, you’ll see a flurry of compliments from reviewers who’re “obsessed” with the tool’s “amazing” results, and insist “it’s worth every penny”.
Now excuse us while we beg for donations from our friends, family and colleagues in a last ditch attempt to look like one of UK’s finest exports.
We can’t talk about the “Someone Like You” singer's makeup without discussing her signature cat eye. This is Adele’s favourite eyeliner for the job.
