    You want the TRUTH?   No cosmetic product will get rid of them.   You can cover them with concealer, I have the dark circles from hell(sinus problems), so its Bobbi Brown Under Eye Brightener, Bobbi Brown corrector and then concealer and you can still see them.

     

    There is a surgery that will they kill the blood vessels, these are really the cause of the darkness.  Your blood vessels are close to the surface of the skin there, some people are lucky and have slightly thicker skin, but it will thin as they get older.   Some like me have sinus problems, kidney problems etc can also cause them.

     

    Christopher Drummond is a makeup artist with his own range.   He said and this is true.   "You are the one worrying about them.  In fact no one is pointing at you in the street or even notices them.  Its you."

    If it were possible actor Benicio del Toro would have done it long ago.

    It really depends on what causes them to appear, from what I've read:

     

    1. If it's broken blood vessels, some eye cream with Vit K and Arnica may help.

     

    2. Hollowing or sunken lower lids caused by loss of fat ( which happens naturally as we age ) - dermal fillers can help. The hollowing can cause shadows to

        appear. The idea is that when you fill in the valley with a filler, the mountain disappear so the darkness will go away.

     

    3. Genetics,  and some ethnics are more predispositioned to have dark circles. The Sikhs usually have pretty fair skin but very visibly dark undereye skin. 

        The solution? Acceptance and a good concealer.

     

    Hope that helps.  smiley.gif

    There are a few things that can cause dark under eye circles...

    1) Sleep deprivation
    2) Genetics

    3) Too Much Of The Sun

    4) Eating Habits 

    5) Cosmetics

    6) Aging

    7) Allergies

     

    Obviously ones like aging and genetics can not be helped but the rest can be solved.

    I have dark circles under my eyes and although lack of sleep makes them worse. I was told by my doctor that they are there because the skin under the eyes is so thin that the blood is much closer to the surface and thus visible if you are pale or very pale like me.  If this is true then I assume getting a tan would help with appearance of dark circles.

     

    However I use makeup to cover them and it works just fine if your not really into makeup Vichy's "Dermablend" stick works wonders and it's so simple to use.

    Oh no, no, tanning will actually make anyone look older! I've never had the habit to tan, and when you put me beside people here in Brazil (of my age, with fair skin like me) who tanned their whole lives, you can clearly see the difference. 

     

    You can't get rid of them, but some cosmetics do help. Unfortunately the best one I've tried is from a brazilian brand called Dermage.
