Thank you for your question and photos!
The appearance of the eyes can be dramatically changed by changing the shape of the cheek/hollow under the eye. The change can be made by adding volume to fill in the hollow with removing the 'eye bags'. There are surgical and non surgical approaches to make this change.

Under eye concealers are difficult because you need to match your natural skin color which can be a challenge.
Hollow dark circles. Hereditary? How to get rid of them?
In a patient with your inherited anatomy, a blepharoplasty will produce the best and longest lasting cosmetic result. The darkness may be less obvious, but will not be totally eliminated.
Following the advice of anyone who would presume to tell you what to do without seeing photos and without taking a full medical history, examining you, feeling and assessing your tissue tone, discussing your desired outcome and fully informing you about the pros and cons of each option would not be in your best interest. Find a plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and one that you trust and listen to his or her advice. The surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
