Adele never fails to look anything but fabulous, and is often spotted rocking a statement cat eye, both on stage performing to her adoring fans, and when out and about at glitzy showbiz events. So when her make-up artist, Michael Ashton, revealed some of his top beauty tips this week, we were all ears. While talking to The Cut, Michael unveiled his top tricks that he applies on his celebrity client, which included a top under-eye concealer tip to avoid creases. Michael advised to use primer under your eyes before applying concealer, saying: "Dusting powder on top of concealer can cause creasing. Prepping concealer with a primer first does not."
