  • Adele, 33, just showed off her super glowy fresh face in a brand new YouTube video.

  • The singer sat while makeup artist Nikkie "NikkieTutorials" de Jager transformed half of her face into a red carpet-worthy look.

  • Adele even shared some of her favorite beauty tips and tricks while chatting with Nikkie.

After Adele's latest YouTube appearance, I'm convinced there's nothing she can't do. The singer, 33, just managed to make half a face full of makeup look like, well, a look (and I'm only a little jealous).

Adele sat down with Nikkie "NikkieTutorials" de Jager, a makeup artist who's gone viral on YouTube for her talent and collabs with other celebs, including Megan Thee Stallion and Lady Gaga. In her latest video, Nikkie shows off her skills by doing a full-glam makeup look on just half of the "Easy On Me" singer's face.

"You truly see the power of makeup when she does that with half my face for sure," Adele laughed during the vid. And, while the transformation is major, Adele's glowy, bare skin is also the star of the show.

While sitting with Nikkie, Adele also shared some of her favorite beauty tips. After laying down a base with the help of Nimya's Where It All Starts Cream, Nikkie's own brand, Adele tells Nikkie that her one must-have is a good brow moment.

"I love a brow. But also if I don't dye my brows—like these are dyed—I look like Voldemort," she said. "They go so pale and blonde!" Adele revealed that she used to have her brows dyed professionally, but then shifted to doing them herself during the pandemic. (DIY beauty for the win!)

"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," she explained.

As far as eye makeup goes, Adele sticks with the classics. "I just like a good eyeliner, like a liquid cat eye. A good contoured eye," she said. When Nikkie asked if she could ever go without it, Adele replied, "I just feel like it's my staple."

"Also, without bragging, I do have such great eyes for makeup," she said. "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."

And, Adele's full glam usually takes a while. "I'd say it's at least two hours. Sometimes it can creep up to three," she explained.

For days when she's not on stage or in front of a camera, Adele only uses a few products. "If I have my hair out natural it's quite wavy and curly. So I'll do that," she said. "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."

At the end of the 20-minute vid, Nikkie hands Adele a mirror for the star's final approval. Here's the big reveal:

"Wow, that's wild!" Adele laughs. "I look like the Joker—in a great way! You did that very, very quick. That's incredible!" (Me next, please!)
