I've read that dark circles are more salt intake related than sleep related...

Assuming makeup is an option...

You can try Dermablend concealer. It covers my dark circles and acne scars. It makes my skin look perfect. It's designed to cover EVERYTHING. I used their foundation when my scars were worse. When you go to the makeup counter, you can ask them to match your color and give you sample portions. Try it thoroughly before you buy. It's good to wear the "test face" throughout the day so you can see how it wears on your skin and how it looks in different light. You need the sample to make sure you can apply it well yourself. You'll want to get their setting powder. There's something in it that makes the makeup last up to 24 hours that's not in other high-end HD powders.

You can also test Bobbi Brown's corrector and concealer. I use that sometimes too. I think the corrector, concealer, and setting powder cost a little over $100ish.

But honestly, that didn't work for me any better than e.l.f. concealer, which is $1.
I have the tube that's one shade too light that I use for corrector. I let it set, then I apply the e.l.f. concealer that is the correct shade. I highly recommend their studio liquid foundation too. I wear it daily. I get good coverage even when I don't have time to conceal. e.l.f. concealers are $1 and the foundation is $6. I know that's cheap, but I think their makeup holds up just as well as Bobbi Brown and Mac. I use e.l.f. daily and quit buying the pricey brands even though I can easily afford them. e.l.f. has excellent brushes, shadows, blushes, etc. too.

The Kat Von D concealer disappointed me. For $20+ a tube, I got little payoff.

For application tips you call look at channels for YouTube gurus like http://www.youtube.com/user/gossmakeupartist
He has loads of good tutorials like how to reduce concealer creasing: http://www.youtube.com/user/gossmakeupartist#p/search/4/S_9exY4F3ww

If you don't want to wear makeup, you can try the tea bag remedy here:
I've found that cold compresses help as well.

I would recommend Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Eye Treatment Masks (kinda pricey but they REALLY help with getting rid of circles and also help prevent wrinkles) You use them once a week. Then Estee Lauder Cooling Eye Illuminator every morning and evening. Its also pricey but VERY worth it.

you could try foundation. sorry for the lousy answer, I don't think there's much you can do about those.

This is my problem, also. Plenty of sleep, salt (if u don't have high blood pressure), and plenty, plenty of water. All the stuff I hate or don't have time full. So I am still looking for answers. Eye Gel packs from Avon, reuseable. Go into the frig and help refresh eyes and reduce puffiness. Which makes ur eyes bright looking. Especially if the whites r really white and less tired looking! I think the two eye packs r $ 6.99 and last for over a yr! Sometimes I put them in the freezer. Wakes me up! Good luck and if u found something that works, let me know. Krazy kara on facebook.

The Sonia Kashuk concealer palette works well for the lighter end of skin tones. Sells at Target for about $10. Not as good as Dermablend but is phenomenal for the price range.
