    Daek Circles

    Sorry you have the same problem that I have had my entire life. I, too, became sick of people asking me if I was TIRED. I am not tired, I am dark under my eyes, just like my Dad. I was told by a doctor that I have "allergic shiners" (dark circles due to allergies) and there was most likely a hereditary issue as well.
    All you can really do is cover them up as naturally as possible. I hope you are female! The best concealers I have found are Smashbox Second Skin Concealer, Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer, and IT, Bye, Bye Undereye concealer, and MakeUP Forever concealers. All are available on QVC, at Sephora or Ulta stores (or online).
    Hope that helps!

    Even I have dark circles that make my eyes look very dull! Please suggest something that really works. I am about to get married and not getting any solutions for it. The concealers make my eyes look swollen. The natural look disappears. Please help!!!

    Responding to the DARK CIRCLE PROBLEM the concealers that you mention are very good! But there's one concealer for under two dollars thats amazing by e.l.f under eye concealer &highlighter. I have fair skin so I use medium/glow, it works. Its available at targets.

    You'll find a number of various kinds of anti-aging eye ointment in the market. These products are dubbed to diminish signs and symptoms of facial lines, under eye swelling and a number accentuating their particular epidermis health improving qualities. Several of these wrinkle reducer applications should be placed onto the skin when you go to sleep. Some may very well be use every day, sometimes below make-up or just in isolation.
