Glossy lids are on everyone's beauty radar since Kim Kardashian rocked the look in the Balmain's Wolves campaign earlier last month, but according to her trusty make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic, it couldn't be simpler to recreate...

...and you probably already own all the beauty buys needed!

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is famed for her killer contour, dramatic lashes and bold brows but Mario went back to basics when beautifying Kim's peepers for the Balmain campaign.

Instead of rifling through his overflowing collection of powder shadows, cremes or chubby sticks make-up maestro Mario blanketed Kim's eyelids with concealer (yep, concealer) in a shade three times darker than her actual skin-tone, instead.

Mario captioned a behind-the-scenes snap of Kim in the make-up chair, "To achieve a look like this on the eyes, I used a cream concealer in a darker shade on the lids (as a shadow) followed by the eye gloss."

And there's totally method in his madness!

Priming the lids with a concealer over a shadow or a creme means they'll remain virtually creaseless, especially when lacquered with gloss, but the best part is that you won't have to shell out on a new palette.

Ehem, Kyshadow.

And if you're a complete bargain hunter, we'd suggest eschewing the eye gloss for a little swipe of Vaseline.

This isn't the only savvy hack that Mario has brought to our attention lately, though, as he also let us in on how we can make sure our foundation sticks around for longer!

Taking to Instagram again, Maz mentioned that makes sure Kim looks flawless 24/7 by dabbing a damp Beauty Blender, £16 (minus extra foundation or concealer) over her already-applied foundation base, just to freshen it up and to stop it from slipping.

What would we do without him, eh?
