Adele Without Makeup


Adele is probably the best vocalist of her generation, but even the most dazzling Grammy winners sometimes get caught without their normal palette of cosmetic colors painted onto their faces.

This makeup-free photo is from 2009, right after Adele won her Best New Artist Grammy. She was leaving her London hotel and seemed to be in a hurry — perhaps the comfort of being at home combined with the exhaustion of performing, recording, and skyrocketing to fame just gave her one of those  attitudes. We can just picture the cheeky Brit saying that right now, and tossing her foundation aside in disdain.
