HOW to remove circles under eyes in FCP

I am editing a music video and the artist wants the dark circles under her eyes to be removed. The make up artist didn't do a good job I guess. I was wondering how that could be done in FCP?

I'm guessing I need to create a mask below her eye, and put diffusion and slight brightening on it. But there are a bunch of shots throughout the video, and I would have to keyframe it the whole way which would take forever. Just wanted to see if anyone had any other shortcuts or suggestions!

Thanks for your thoughts!

Masking would be a good but long winded way, or go down a colour correcting route, de-saturate the footage and bring up the contrast, then you won't see as many tones? But that's a little extreme i suppose.

I've seen really useful skin-tone filters for photoshop, and i'm sure i've seen some hanging around for FCP. I'll have a think.

Filters

Yea, skin tone filters might be a good solution. Thanks for your thoughts and please let me know if you know of any that might work, because I'm not knowledgable in that area.

Thanks!
