Question dark blue shading around the inner corners of the eyes

I've been wondering for some time what might cause the dark blue-ish purple-ish shading around the inner corner of my eyes.
In the image below it doesnt really highlight how dark the the colour is. I've been told it looks like ive been in a fight and have two black eyes. Ive had it for many years now certainly since i was a teenager. Some people have said that it's due to me using a computer all day long, I don't think this is the case as I've had it since before my computing days.


I am a red head and have only ever noticed it on a couple of other red heads this might very well mean nothing though.

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction as to what this condition (if it is one) might be called.

Sometimes people who have allergies get dark cirlces arounf their eyes like you've described. Have you been having any allergy attacks recently?

No as far as I am aware I am not allergic to anything. Like I said its not something recent Ive had them for many years now. I probably wouldnt call them rings more of a dark shading mostly in the inner corners of my eyes.
