If you've ever had dark circles, then you may have reached for that under-eye concealer to avoid the oh-so-useless "You look tired" comment from your coworker (or other tactless person in your life).

But those dark crescent moons are often badges of nights well spent -- perhaps earned by meeting an impossible deadline, kicking ass as a mom or partying into the wee morning hours. And whether your under eye circles are the result of an all-nighter or simply hereditary, these shady companions do more than simply hint at busy lifestyles; they provide an "I woke up like this -- no, really, I woke up like this" visual cue that not only gives us permission to embrace the fact that we're human, but reminds us that dark circles can, in fact, be kind of sexy.

They add a moody badass quality to their wearers, as well as a confident IDGAF attitude that's pretty attractive, too. And while some women would never give up concealer (do you, girl!), others might find inspiration from these 13 women who skip it in favor of a little shady behavior.

Clemence Poesy
The Parisian actress got her love for an au naturale look from her mama. "She always said she didn't understand concealer -- dark circles under the eyes can be one of the most moving things on a human face," she told Vogue. They definitely add a certain je ne sais quoi to Poesy's looks on and off the red carpet.
