 What ways do you diminish the look of dark circles under your eyes?  I'm not good with makeup but need help concealing these circles.

 I use undereye concealer.  I'm not that great with using makeup though, so I apply it on as best as I can, then put a little bit of foundation over that.  If I have really dark circles, then I have to go one step further, and then use a little bit of eyeliner and eyeshadow.  It seems to make my eyes look a bit more lively.

Just peel and place over eyes and relax about 30 minutes or so.

I think it would depend on why you have them. Is it lack of sleep...too much sun...medication...or just a natural aging process (hereditary.) There are some skin products that reduce age spots and darkening areas on the skin that work really well. Some women as they age and go into menopause seem to develop dark circles. So it may be that you need some estroven or something like that. Without knowing more it would be hard to tell you what might work....although a potato is certainly cheap enough to try!
