Kim Kardashian West touched down in Dubai last weekend to hold a beauty workshop with her trusted makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic in tow, putting an end to her three-month long hiatus from the limelight following the frightening Paris heist she was subjected to. Guests in attendance were invited to watch Dedivanovic transform a fresh-faced Kardashian West, using stealthy beauty tricks and techniques that are certainly worth adopting into your everyday makeup routine; most notably, the super duty concealer trick that the mother of two swears by, which involves layers (and layers and layers) of product.
Rather than applying concealer, blending it, then dusting powder over the top to set the product, Kardashian West favors a different technique. To avoid the caked-on look, use a moisturizing under-eye cream before applying the product. Then, add concealer underneath your eyes three times before buffing it with loose powder, in order to seamlessly camouflage any trace of dark circles. A dusting of loose powder also prevents your concealer from creasing and budging throughout the day.
