Rihanna can do no wrong in our eyes.

She proved what inclusivity is when she launched her 40 (now 50) shade foundation range with Fenty Beauty, she's set to drop Fenty Skin next week and her make-up artist has revealed a genius concealer hack.

We love when a professional MUA shares their beauty secrets and Hector Espinal - RiRi's make-up artist - has spilled the tea on how to actually hide your under eye circles.

He starts by using one of the 50 Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch concealer shades as a colour correct to conceal his dark circles and any redness on his face.

The MUA then uses the Precision Concealer Brush 180 to blend the make-up out before going over everything with the Precision Makeup Sponge 100 to "pick up any excess product".

And let's be honest there's nothing worse than when you've put on too much concealer and you're not quite sure what to do with it...

If you have lines/fold under your eyes Hector advises to apply your concealer underneath them and later blend the concealer up and onto them creating a nice smokey effect.

And he doesn't stop there huns, he then applies his "OG" - aka his usual - concealer shade next to his nose to once again cancels any remaining redness and of course, brighten his skin.

He then applies some Invisimatte Blotting Powder wherever he wants his face to be matte - so basically around his nose area.
