Vietnamese-origin artist Anthony H. Nguyen has been praised for making up British singer Adele in her latest music video 'Easy On Me'.

In the 'Easy On Me' MV released on Oct. 15, she appears in winged eyeliner and red lipstick done by Nguyen, according to American fashion and entertainment magazine Cosmopolitan.

Adele has always been known for wearing sharp winged liners, and her make-up for 'Easy On Me' has come in for much praise from fans.

"That winged eyeliner," a fan commented on the MV, while many others said they love the singer's iconic liner and smoky eyes.

Nguyen also posted a photo of Adele on his Facebook page, saying the release of 'Easy On Me' is a special moment for him.

Nguyen, 34, was born in a Vietnamese family in the U.S. and lives in Los Angeles. He has worked with many stars like Katy Perry, Dua Lipa, Christina Aguilera, Jessie J, Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X, and Ava Max and has been featured in fashion magazines including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Allure.

He has served as a creative consultant for many MVs and advertising campaigns, and was one of 30 makeup artists selected from around the world to curate a limited edition eyeshadow palette for MAKE UP FOR EVER's 30th anniversary in 2014.

In an interview on Harper's Bazaar in July, he said he had to work three times harder to prove to his parents and himself that "success comes from whatever you put your heart into.

"I’m happy to say my parents fully acknowledge, support and are very proud of me now."

In 'Easy On Me', Adele wears a glossy coat with a burnt orange ribbed turtleneck sweater and sepia brown high-waisted wool trousers designed by Lanvin's creative director Bruno Sialelli.
