Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

Black eye due to recent trauma usually heals well with treatment. But black eye due to trauma 17 years back is very unlikely to respond to any medicines either to the eye or to the skin. You have chosen the best way that is to conceal with make up. Once the skin gets hyperpigmented , though there are products available to lighten it , I seriously doubt whether they will help in your case. I have heard of chemical peel being done by dermatologists for dark circles around the eyes with some good results. Maybe you can consult a dermatologist in this regard.

Thanks and best wishes
