    You need to buy yourself a concealer stick. They are like a lipstick. It works real good for me. Try to pick a shade lighter than your skin color. Smudge it over the dark area and use loose powder and a brush to poweder your faface. If you use liquid makeup or whatever I find it wears to thin. The powder sets it. Good luck

    I have dark circles under my eyes too, to a certain extent it can be hereditary. I find keeping my diet as healthy as possible, ie. limit processed foods, sugar salt and caffiene. Exercise and getting enough sleep, but you already knew that. Allergies are definetly a huge culprit for dark circles.

    Like the others said, a good concealer will do alot to hide them, but make sure you're not allergic to any of the ingredients.

    So many of us seem to have this problem! Maybe the answer is to make dark under-eye circles that latest style! Mine are hereditary and I find that I can only do so much with concealer and creams. Nothing completely gets rid of my dark circles but a few things do help. Get enough sleep, exercise and hydration. About a month ago I started to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and it has made a big difference with my complexion and my overall health. As far as topical treatments, I have had the most success with the ProVectin Plus Advanced Eye Cream which is available in drugstores. As an added bonus to getting rid of some of the darkness under my eyes, this eye cream has also taken care of my wrinkles (Crow's feet) and reduced the crepiness on my lids.

    I've not tried this but I just saw a demonstration of the Bare Escentuals Minerals and they have a product called "Well-Rested" that looks like it would help. It has a slightly yellow cast to it and I do know that products with the yellow tones in them do help hide dark circles.

    There's been a lot of good advice posted so, hopefully, you now have some answers for your dark circles. Good luck!

    There's an eye cream called Teamine which is supposed to be quite effective at reducing dark circles. You may want to look into it.

    Hey I have the same problem and its really bad and I am always looking for solutions. I have to agree with whoever mentioned drinking lots of helps a little plus I have noticed if I exercise on a regular basis that also helps.

    I was wondering **Waterlily mentioned teamine - who makes the cream and where is it available.

    I usually just use Loreal Visible Eye Cream I think it is called but it doesn't help that much.

    --where can i be

    Teamine is made by Revision Skin Care. I think you can only find it online.

    I also have dark circles (all my life) I found concelers did not work for me. The best I have tried so far is using Estee Lauder's Full Coverage Make-up. You do not need a concealer - it conceals all. Have talked to some make-up users and they use this as a concealer along with other make up.
