I DO agree that getting enough sleep and drinking plenty of water is very helpful
Its thinning skin that does that. Broken ones look like splotches (had that thank you mr. baseball hitting mein the face..lol)

You hair is so pretty btw. Just a cover up suggestion kat von D tattoo cover. Try it out. It may work or may not. Undereye area can be such a:

The stuff:
Sephora: Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer: Concealer

Color correctors are nice too for helping cover but I personally find them annoying to work with on paler skin.

Oh my gosh....why did I never think of that before??? I would've been buying this stuff for years!! I was going to order it, but I was wondering if I should go to the store so I can make sure to get just the right shade.

Thank you so very much!!!! You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

I would go to the store so they can help you pick/try it out. The right color can totally make all the difference. I personally think that using a brush also makes a difference because you can brush it out really softly (with any makeup really). The finger just kinda globs it on too heavy. They just came out with more shades too so maybe they can load you up with samples.
If it looks too flat/matte for you set it with mineral powder. It gives it a little sheen. If you have fine line settling problems try a primer first.

I don't know how to get rid of them, but a brightening pencil will help diminish their appearance a lot.
