At Pixiwoo we are inspired every day by the work of great Make up artists and we wanted to write a piece on Michael Ashton who for the last five years has been the personal make up artist to British singing sensation Adele.
Michael began his career twelve years ago as a senior stylist and part of the Stephen Marr Artistic team becoming a renowned hairstylist in New Zealand.
Since these beginnings he made the move to New York where he worked alongside the MAC Pro team.Later this led him across Europe to London.
His work has been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire, Glamour and Vanity Fair and his endless client list from Adele, Elle McPherson to Amber Heard and many more in between has given him a firm footing on the international make up artist scene.
Michael created the amazing beauty look Adele has become known for and was responsible for Adele's make up at The Grammy Awards and The BRIT Awards 2012.
I think you will agree these were both amazing iconic looks and here at Pixiwoo we were inundated with tutorial requests.
