Kim Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, the man behind the most snatched brows of all time, has about a million and one tricks up his sleeve. Contouring was just the beginning and his latest game-changing trick now has us doubling down on concealer. But not for the reasons you might think...

There are many reasons to love this hack beyond the thrill of going against the grain. For one, neutrals, much like they are in fashion, are a major trend this season, and this is an easy way to find the perfect shade and complement your go-to nude lip.

Then, there are the benefits of concealer's consistency. Dedivanovic has said he's partial to a creamy pigment for the eyes, applying it to the inner lids to make the eyes appear larger or as a base for powder shadow to make it last longer. Similarly, color correctors are inherently easy to blend, can be layered for desired opacity, and are known for long-lasting wear.

And if you're worried about the wash of pigment looking too matte? Just swipe some eye gloss, lip gloss, or even Vaseline over the concealer for a wet-shine finish.

Sounds like a perfect solution for these scorching, oily-lid-inducing temps to us.
