Fidget Spinner Beauty is Now a ‘Thing'

Fidget spinners have quickly become a worldwide phenomenon. From pets to little kids, we are sure you have seen at least one video about the toy.

Lately, the device has been used for something other than its intended use. YouTube beauty star, James Charles redefined makeup tools and has decided to use a fidget spinner.

On his Instagram account, where he has nearly 2 million followers, he went to explain how to contour while using the spinning device. Before you go on to judge Charles’ decision, he went on to explain in the caption of the video that he “thought the were so dumb at first but they really help with ADHD and they’re so fun.”
