Q: “How do you ace eyebag concealing and make sure it stays the whole day? My undereyes are fairly dry but leaving them as they are makes my MOTD gnarly. Help a sister out!” Soraya Ali, 28, Writer

A: Before anything else, here’s a PSA: never skip your eye cream! It’s like a drink of water for your undereyes at night and especially if you sleep in an air-conditioned room, a little hydration boost via the taps of your ring finger go a long way.

When it comes to makeup with skincare benefits, I look no further than IT Cosmetics and I especially love their lightweight concealer. The Bye Bye Undereye Concealer has reached cult status for many reasons – it stays with you all day as it is waterproof and expression-proof. Brand trainer, Gwen Chew during a masterclass session with IT Cosmetics demonstrated that you’d only need a dot for a natural finish and two for full-coverage looks – not to be dramatic but if you need to go for a swim with concealer on, this won’t fail you. Two words: creaseless magic! If you haven’t experienced this one, you should.

Here’s the Bye Bye Undereye Concealer plus other creamy, non-creasing concealers I love ATM for that airbrushed effect:
