Adele Without Makeup

  • Pin it

I feel strange for doing this. Because I really love Adele and I think she is one of the most gifted people I’ve ever seen / heard in my life! In her own words: “I wish nothing but the best for you”, Adele! (I can’t even read this phrase anymore without hearing Adele singing it in the back of my head – the lady is simply amazing!).

However, I’m always stunned by what makeup and an inspiring hairdo can do to one’s appearance. We’ve seen it before, here’s the Adele edition: Adele without makeup. I love her dearly, so by no means is this meant to belittle her in our eyes and hearts! It’s just.. how do I put this politely? I have absolutely no clue how to find what style suits me best. How do you get by with styling yourself?) (photos via 1, 2)

Adele with and without makeup

She is wonderful and talented with or without makeup on.
And why does this really matter?

ummm… because, like I said, I sometimes have troubles in finding the right hairstyle to suit and flatter me best (and makeup). And whenever I discover the before / after styling pictures of someone famous (or less famous) I’m contemplating the approach. Trying to determine the inspiration and the perspective?

Well it does depend if I am going out or staying, if it is a humid day (which can play havoc for good or ill with my hair and I am sure yours also Kpriss).
I think that there is no pat solution you have to just feel how you feel at the time. Sometimes it is a wear no makeup and wear a stylish scarf in my hair day, or just clip it back into a ponytail, or just pile it up.
It all depends. : )

True, true. Subjectivity rules the world. Although you’ll have to agree that some people find their “right” style long before those like me are tired of trying out styles in the dark. I can’t see Anna W wearing anything but her fringed bob, for instance. Adele’s retro big hair and heavy eyeliner makes her magically beautiful while Gwyneth Paltrow, who’s always been consistently long – haired is now looking way better than she did years ago, although still sporting straight long locks and the same haircolor (pretty much, I can’t tell the exact difference between the many shades of blonde, red or brown).

I think I put too much pressure on my hair (smile) and surely an immeasurable strain on my (empty) makeup bag (smile again).

It’s all in our head ladies! I noticed so often that it doesn’t really matter what I look like; it’s the vibe I am in that make people interact. :)

You two are gorgeous no matter what your look is; you are just fine the way you are! Hugs :*

Yes, it is all in our heads because that is where a good beauty attitude starts! : )
And thanks for that ajginger, you are lovely too! : )

She looks like Roger from American Dad.

You say this “by no means is meant to belittle her” but do you really mean that? Does she even want those pictures going around? Yeah, I doubt it. She says she doesn’t much care how she looks but everyone cares a little, right?

Well, she look like 23, and she is more cute to me without make up

#13 Adele Appleton on 04.30.13 at 3:18 pm

Wow, dont really know what to say….. I always thought she always overdid it with the makeup, but seeing her without it on changes my mind…. she dosent really look that great. No, thats an understatement- she looks AH- MAZING WITHOUT HER MAKEUP ON!
