I don’t know about remedies for the circles, but have you tried special under-eye makeup? I’ve never used it myself, but I probably will for the wedding.

they have special makeup corrector for dark dircles…it looks yellow…you put it on then add your normal concealer or foundation over it…I have this problem too..though mine isn’t that bad.

Concealer is my BEST FRIEND and when I leave home without it no joke everyone and their mother asks me if I am tired. I feel like yelling, “NO THIS IS WHAT I LOOK LIKE W/OUT CONCEALER…”  

I have tried several creams and NOTHING has helped with the circles. Like you mentioned they are indeed 100% hereditary.  I am 30 and have been wearing concealer since 8th grade. I have tried ALL fancy brands and the best brand that does not make you look goofy in photos is Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer SPF 25.  It is $22 and will last for months.  I dab it under my eye as well as on my eye lid. 

Good Luck – I hope you try it out Wink

I swear by my Smashbox concealer. I used to use undereye concealer as well, but honestly, it didn’t make much of a difference. I think the important thing is following up with a powder or something to set it, otherwise it rubs off.

I have the same problems. Though if you have allergies they tend to make it worse-supposedly. I use Mary Kay Yellow concealer. Works like a charm. I’ll never use anything else now. I’m addicted to the stuff. I’ve been using under eye concealers since I was 13 and have tried everything in the book. I finally started using Mary Kay Yellow Concealer a few months ago and I will never go back. You’d never know I have under eye circles when I have that on. I use a little bit of MK mineral poweder over it and it stays on all day. I LOVE MK! It’s saved me from looking like a zombie more times then I can count.

I put lighter concelear WITH MOISTURIZER (that way it isn’t cakey) under my eyes  and over that use Benefit Powderfladge.   It is this wonderful light power that is supposed to cover darkening under the eye… It works GREAT for me! Good Luck!

Since they’re hereditary, it may not work…but try getting some extra vitamin K in your diet.  It’s worth a shot.

I tend to have some dark circles and for me, it’s a combination of things that have worked.  I try to make sure to really moisturize my under-eyes twice a day.  I notice that the skin is a little thinner there and can be dry, so this helps.  Also, I use a good concealer (I like Clinique All About Eyes).  Finally, I try to use some highlighter to brighten up my eye area and negate the darkness.  I really like Benefit Eye Bright for this.  I use it in the corners of my eyes (by the tear duct), up at the brown bone and in the upper corner.  I picked up that trick from Carmindy on What Not to Wear and it works wonders!

i also use Mary Kay yellow under eye concealer, and since I’ve switched to it, I get a lot of people telling me I look “glowing”.  I never knew Mary Kay had such quality stuff until a friend had an MK party and I bought a couple things because I felt obligated.  It’s really great!

I have them too. They seem to go away during the summer vacations as a result of getting more sleep and getting a tan.
