Gigi Hadid has been promoting her makeup collaboration with Maybelline, and during an interview she casually let slip what just might be the best lipstick hack ever.

While speaking to W magazine, Gigi said, “I always wore nude [lips] pretty much until I started working, [then] I started wearing colored lips. But before that, in high school, my first makeup was Maybelline 24-Hour Concealer, and I used to put it on my lips because I hated how dark my lips were. And I still do that.”
While there’s no reason to hide your beautiful natural lip color, Gigi’s concealer trick is a brilliant one. It can be hard (read: impossible) to find a nude lipstick that’s exactly the right shade for you, but concealer obviously comes in loads of skin tones.

Gigi also showed how, if you have naturally dark or bright lips, applying concealer on them before lipstick of any shade creates a neutral base for the product and allows the color to truly show.
