People have used all sorts of fancy things to perfect their makeup, either to get the sharpest sharp lines or the blendiest blend. People went NUTS (nuts!) when a woman discovered that a testicle can make a great beauty blender (yes, a testicle, as in NUTS!), and now the latest, surprisingly effective beauty tool is everyone's new favorite toy, the fidget spinner.

James Charles, makeup artist extraordinaire and CoverGirl's first CoverBoy, combined the internet's obsessions with the spinny thing and makeup tutorials in one glorious video.

It turns out that the edges of the fidget spinner make for some very well-defined lines, with the three arms being perfect for using different colors, and if you're brave enough, the spinning factor could blend...ish.

James Charles is famously extra (or extra-ly famous) for his commitment to all things highlighter. He even brought his own lighting to his senior photos to make sure that his highlighter was highlighted!

The fidget spinner video has gotten over 2 million views, likely from people who are bored and distracted enough to use fidget spinners.

Sadly James Charles use the fidget spinner while it's actually fidget spinning, rendering it simply as a fidget triangle. Still, the toy surprisingly makes for a very effective brush.

While it doesn't seem like fidget spinners will be replacing actual makeup brushes anytime soon, it's good to know that once the craze passes, there are some practical uses for the chunk of plastic once you or your kids are bored with them.
