Are Some Dark Circles Caused by Inset Tear Duct Area?

My bluish purple circles begin very high on the inside the curve of my nose a little above the inside corner of my eye and circle below the eye to the cheek bone. I've had these all my life, make up doesn't work. I have large eyes. There's no fat under my eyes, lines, nor puffiness, I don't deep set eyes, or a heavy brow. My face is quite feminine. I do have fair skin. Is this just a combination of bone structure and fair skin that I just need to get over?
Tear trough correction
Sounds like what is described as a "tear trough". It is actually a small depression in the bone near the vicinity of the duct that collects tears from the eyes and transports them to the nose. My wife has this problem and a touch of Perlane every 6 months fixes the problem.
