    I'm the same - pale w/dark circles, and I've found a few things that are good:

    1) Moisturize. Dermalogica has Vitamin E capsules that you dab on and if you use them consistently, they really help. They're kind of expensive, but each capsule lasts for 2-6 days, depending on how much/how often you use it: http://www.dermalogica.com/default2....ion=?&location=?

    2) id's Bare Minerals/Bare Escentuals in fair, applied with their concealer brush, has been very good to me. It blends well, and you don't make wrinkles worse by rubbing in a stick concealer. As long as you dab (never rub...dot & pat, as taught to me by Kyan from QE )on a moisturizer first, it shouldn't flake, either:

    3) And of course, sleep...but who has time for that?

    There's no way you can get rid of your undereye circles completely but here are a couple of things that would help:

    1. Exercise regularly and massage your eyes daily. Undereye circles can be caused by poor blood circulation.

    2. Invest in a good concealer. For a list of concealer reviews, please check out:

    3. Use an eye cream daily. Make sure your eye area is well hydrated and never ever rub your eyes.

    4. Make sure you take off your eye makeup gently and completely. Dark circles can be caused by pigmentation.

    I don't have dark circles but I have a couple of capillaries. I use an eyecream then I tap on laura mercier secret concealer. I can't use foundation or powder on top because it looks cakey on me.
    If you can't be a good example -- then you'll just have to be a horrible warning

    Could you clarify? The two phrases I highlighted seem to be contrary, unless I'm just misunderstanding you. Difference between massage and rubbing?

    massage would be like, putting your fingers in the same spot and making circles...

    rubbing would be causing friction, think of rubbing your hands together to stay warm, as opposed to kneeding someone's shoulders

    bobbie brown has amazing undereye concealer for like $32.00 but I highly recommend it, it has a matching powder attached to it also. Not sure if they still make this though since I've had mine for so long b/c its lasted this long but works great. Got it from Nordstrom dept. store too. O i found it and it does come w/o the powder for $22.00

    trust me on this; i've had dark circles since I was a kid, it b/c of my italian nose and genetics on both sides of my family so i rely heavily on under eye concealer just to leave the house!

    I also love the Bobbie Brown concealer. Just put a little moisturizer on before and it doesn't accent the fine lines. Lasts all day. I have a BB travel concealer that also has a correcting pigment and setting powder.

    I am also extremely fair and my only pigment seems to be under my eyes.
