Things that go hand in hand with Adele: emotional songs that inspire even the heartless among Us to weep openly, and of course, a fierce cat-eye. It seems like every time we see Adele, she's rocking yet another wing-tipped eyeliner look, and pulling it off wherever she may be. And, despite the fact that we're all crying, she's not — in fact, her eyeliner has never not looked perfect. 

The "Chasing Pavements" singer, 27, who has shattered nearly every record with her latest single, "Hello," manages to make retro liner work for any occasion by truly owning her '60s vibe.

Whether she's stunning in clean, flipped liner (like her 2012 Grammys beauty, pictured above), smoking the look out with darker shadows, or solely focusing on the upper lid, Adele is always giving Us major eye envy. 

Scroll through to see how to make a pretty cat-eye work at all times, as demonstrated by the soulful songstress.
