What are your favourite under eye bag covering products? New baby so not getting as much sleep as I'd like....

Touché eclat. If you have dark circles then use the lemon aid by benefit first. If they are really really bad then erase paste too.

Mac Pro Longwear covers absolutely everything. I've only recently started using it and I look more alive than I have for years.

I use brown eyeshadow on my tear bags to highlight them after concealing under eye bags with the mac concealor that comes in a mini pump x
I'm weird

Also I find that touché eclat highlights my undereues and makes them shiny

A highlighter pen style will only make bags look bigger as they will highlight them. Highlighters should only be used under the eyes if you have sunken dark circles or no bags. To make bags look smaller you need a concealer that's slightly darker then normal as it will push the bags back rather that brighten them up iyswim!

Bobbi brown peach corrector and mac prolong wear on top.

I quite like Maybelline Age Rewind, but I don't have bags - only dark circles and shadows (deep set eyes).

Do you actually have bags or dark circles?

I like the estee lauder version of touche eclat, it has colour in it so is more like a concealer as well, and it gives good coverage and lasts well.

I'd also recommend Mac Pro Longwear. I started using it only a couple of weeks ago - emergency airport purchase! - and it really is good. I find that it provides better coverage than anything else I've tried over the years including Bobbi Brown concealers/corrections and Touche Elcat

Just dark circles- I hadn't really thought of the difference until you asked!

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

Benefit Erase Paste is amazing! It lasts forever too as you don't need to use much so definitely worth spending the money on it (it's about £20 I think).

Revlon eye primer, it's amazing.
