The Academy Awards were a big night for Adele—in addition to her stellar performance of "Skyfall," (for which she was backed by a 1,500-lb. curtain made of 100,000 Swarovski crystals) the singer also took home an Oscar for Best Original Song, making her only two awards away from the coveted EGOT status! Of course, Adele never disappoints in the beauty category, and through the course of her memorable night, she showed off two gorgeous hair and makeup looks. We caught up with her hairstylist and makeup artist Michael Ashton, who took us on an exclusive trip backstage to see how the star's lush lashes and soft curls came together.
