Black bags under eyes

I need a really good product. Maybe two - one for reducing black bags under eyes and another for covering up in the meantime.

I look like I've been punched in both eyes! Big dark circles underneath my eyes.

I wear glasses and recently got contacts. I am not confident to wear the contact lenses as my eyes look so awful, at least glasses cover it a bit.

Please recommend! I want a nice face!

Following with interest as I too look like I've just done 10 rounds in a boxing ring.

I have read that an iron supplement may help.

Bobbi Brown makes a really good corrector just a cream that you pay on lightly I really like it for dark under eyes

I use the ordinary caffeine serum under my eyes, then bobbi brown peach corrector, then mac concealer on top of that..

Works a treat. I make sure my eye area is well moisturised and apply the 'v' area under my eye

I have this problem too sad I've tried correctors but I'm maybe getting the wrong colour as it just looks really obvious!

I have the same problem. If I use a concealer it just looks worse.

Granted, I have been quite ill recently, but even the dc commented on it. So now I am a bit paranoid.

Someone sent me a pintrest thing for making a paste with baking soda and leaving it on a while. I am yet to try it, but I think I might.

When covering, first use an orange toned concealor and then one which matches your own skin tonw....and never use a green toned concealor. Look at Kryolan concealor wheel. It's very pigmented and covers even my very red scars.

Jonesy, maybe that is where I am going wrong with concealer. I was always led to believe that you should use a shade one lighter than your foundation.

Which makes sense now I think about it as I am just highlighting the area instead......

If you are using a corrector you have to use your shade of concealer on top.
