This is Adele's secret weapon for flawless foundation

Sorry, it costs how much?

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.

Introducing: the Artis Elite Mirror Oval 7 Brush ($121.06 at Revolve). 

Artis Elite Mirror Oval 7 Brush

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.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
