While sitting down with Nikkie “NikkieTutorials" de Jager for her “Power of Makeup” YouTube video, Adele not only spilled the tea about her makeup routine but also shared some personal details about her love for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The 30 artist kicked off the video completely fresh-faced, while Nikkie explained her “Power of Makeup” segment, sharing that one side of Adele’s face would be completely glam, while the other side would be left untouched and free of makeup.

Of course, Adele’s dry sense of humor was in full swing during her appearance with Nikkie. She joked, “You truly see the power of makeup when she does that with half my face for sure.”

As the famed YouTuber began her process on Adele, the “I Drink Wine” singer shared the secret behind her eyebrows. “I love a brow. But also if I don't dye my brows — like these are dyed — I look like Voldemort,” noted the artist.

She added, “I actually learned how to dye my own brows in the pandemic. I used to go every week because I really am fair. One day I did a load of research, watched a YouTube video [and] ordered all the products on Amazon. I do it once a week on my own now."

Touching on her signature winged eyeliner look, the Brit shared, “I just like a good eyeliner, like a liquid cat eye. A good contoured eye.” Nikkie followed up, asking, “Could you live without?” Adele promptly replied, “I just feel like it's my staple. Also, without bragging, I do have such great eyes for makeup. I have my nana's eyes. I have a real socket going on. I got it from my nana. Every time I meet a makeup artist they really go to town on my eyelids.”

When she’s not in a dressing room or a makeup chair surrounded by makeup artists, Adele likes to keep things effortless. She says, “If I have my hair out natural it's quite wavy and curly. So I'll do that. I'll literally just put on Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, that glowy thing and then I put a really nice bronze highlight pretty much all over my face. I look like I just walked off the beach.”

However, when getting into glam for work engagements the singer reveals that her hair and makeup process ranges from two to three hours.

Aside from sharing tidbits about her makeup routine, Adele also dished out other important facts like celebrity crushes and upcoming music videos. As De Jager worked on Adele’s smokey eye the artist revealed that she would completely fangirl over Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson if she met him in person, noting that the moment might bring her to tears.

"Someone I've never met that I think I would actually cry [over] is The Rock but I know he goes by Dwayne Johnson,” shared Adele. “I was the biggest wrestling fan when I was younger.”

While the two have never met in person, Adele revealed that she and Johnson have already started to cultivate a friendship. She explained, “he sent me flowers the other day 'cause him and his wife couldn't make my show.” She joked, "literally, I nearly fell off me chair!"

In terms of upcoming music videos, Adele shared that her video for “I Drink Wine” will be “f***ing hilarious.” Having filmed it a while ago she detailed, “it's the campiest thing you'll ever see, and I feel like everyone might be dressed up as Halloween for it next year."

With a new album out and a freshly announced Las Vegas Residency at Caesar’s Palace, which will kick off in January, 2022 is primed to be the year of Adele! Hopefully, The Rock can make it to one of her Weekends With Adele shows in Vegas!
