Adele Is Back and so Is Michael Ashton’s Trademark
Hamilton-born makeup artist Michael Ashton, 39, has admitted in a new interview with the New York Post’s Page Six Style, that he never thought Adele’s signature winged eyeliner would become so iconic. Nevertheless, it made a triumphant return this month when the singer debuted her new single and music video, Easy On Me.
Ashton who began his career as a hairstylist first met Adele ahead of her debut album, 19, in 2007. He is best known for painting famous faces like Hilary Swank, Keira Knightley, Zac Effron and Penélope Cruz.
The Marc Jacobs Beauty global artistry ambassador told Page Six:
“With mask-wearing still being a big part of our lives for the foreseeable future, eye makeup will continue to play a starring role for fall and through the holidays.”
He expects “graphic eyeliner shapes, eyeshadows in luxe multidimensional textures and surprising pops of bold colour” to be big news this season.
