The One Thing I Just Don’t Get About Adele

Adele usually sticks with the same look everywhere she goes (thick, fake lashes, big hair, red lipstick), but her makeup always looks incredible. And last night at the Oscars was, quite possibly, THE BEST she’s ever looked (see above for proof). My brain fails to understand why the woman still does not have a beauty contract. Even Carly Rae Jepsen has one, for crying out loud!

No, Adele doesn’t need a cosmetics company to validate her fabulousness, but she is just as worthy as the other stars who’ve scored deals in the past year. And, I think if a brand scooped her up, it would send a positive message to all women: You don’t have to be rail thin to be considered a beauty icon. The only other voluptuous celeb I can think of with a makeup endorsement is Queen Latifah, and she was signed to Cover Girl in 2001.

As for who should court Adele, I picture her partnering with a sophisticated, high-end brand— Burberry would be the obvious choice. On the other hand, I could also see her going the edgier route and joining Rihanna over at MAC. Only time will tell, but I have a feeling we won’t have to wait long before a big announcement is made. These companies might be slow, but they’re not stupid.

Which makeup company do you think Adele should sign with? Think she’ll land a hair or fragrance contract, too?
