Dark undereye circles

I always have dark undereye circles, even before I had my son and was utterly sleep-deprived. I know it might have something to do with allergies and I take Claritin on daily basis to combat my allergies. I was wondering if someone could share their secret to making it less apparent? I've tried using those yellow concealer sticks, and I use foundation regliously... but the circles show through after a few hours. I always look exhausted even when I am not. Does anyone have any cheap tricks to fix this?

  • I sure wish there was a secret. I have the same problem. Have you tried Vitamin A?

  • I also have that problem. Sometimes it's genetic, and there isn't much you can do. I wish I could just find a fantastic concealer to cover them...
