Bad under eye circles

I've always had really bad undereye creases and it's the very root of my incecurity. It's the reason I started and continue to wear makeup. From the age of nine I had other kids asking why my eyes were so purple. I didn't know what to tell them. My mom has it pretty bad too and in all honesty I'd be MUCH more confident in myself if those little lines just weren't there. Any tips on getting rid of them?
