Here, for Mamamia, she gives her top tips and tricks on how to seamlessly hide those under-eye bags creeping up on you.
It starts before the makeup
Baker says combatting under-eye bags starts well before the makeup. In fact, it starts by addressing the puffiness that often hits our eyes when we have just woken, or are feeling a little run down.
“Combat puffiness under the eye with something cooling. A quick trick at home is to run a teaspoon under cold water and rest the rounded side under your eyes for a minute. This will ease puffiness in the morning,” she says.
