If you’re someone who has to deal with bad breakouts and blemishes more often than not, then you probably have your methods to take care of or cover them. Toothpaste. Concealer. Powder. For Kelly Rowland, it’s no different. The 37-year-old singer has all sorts of marks and pimples that pop up that she has to take care of, especially since she’s always in front of someone’s camera. The Voice coach told Elite Daily in a new interview that her unique beauty hack is covering up blemishes by turning them into faux moles. If you’ve ever noticed them, the small dark spots that sometimes appear on her face were created by the star out of fake eyelash adhesive.

“This is not a real mole. That is not a real mole. Those are not real moles,” she said. “I cover them [blemishes] up with DUO Glue.”

The only thing about the trick is that if you create too many at once, you run the risk of being found out and having people mistake your spots for freckles. That happened to Rowland once, but she just decided to come clean about it.

“There was this one time I made them super tiny, and I had, like, little freckles,” she said. “Somebody goes, ‘I didn’t know you had freckles.’ I said, ‘I don’t. I’m having a really bad breakout right now, and I just made them, you know, little freckles.'”

She’s actually been doing it for years. She told PEOPLE in 2014 that she doesn’t leave the house without her DUO glue moles.

“I like moles. I think they’re the cutest thing. It’s all Marilyn Monroe’s fault,” she said. “I remember one day seeing the black Duo glue that I put my lashes on with [and trying it on my face]. I let it dry and it was raised and everything. It was the cutest stinking mole, and I was sold. I never walk out of the house without a mole. It can be anywhere on my face — it’s the forever moving mole. Now it’s over here [she points]; I have a blemish, it’s helping me out.”
