and I need a little help on some techniques to fix 'em (besides "do it right the first time!")

Their not on all the shots, just a couple. What is compounding the issue is that she has darker (shades of brown) eye shadow on.

Thoughts?

Do you mean that you threw too much bounce straight up, and not enough fill? If that's the case, just use a bounce card. Since you're posting after-the-fact, try reducing the contrast? Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

I had a similar problem and found the technique in this post helpful:
http://photography-on-the.net ...hp?p=3914524&postco​unt=21

On the lighter layer, I used a big brush, about the size of the entire eye area, with the hardness (not sure if that's the right word for PS) set to about 15 or 20 on the mask so that it still looked smooth. Hopefully it'll work for you.

Clone tool, set the source as the skin below the eyes, reduce the strength of the tool to maybe 20%

Kubota's "Digital Fill Flash"action. That one alone is worth the price of the set!

I second this - after a run of the fill flash... but also remember to do these things BEFORE you run any other actions, esp. noise removal.

I still always work the eyes on a completely seperate layer. After I have done all the doctoring, I reduce the opacity layer just a bit to keep it from looking "too perfect".

Thanks...think I got em. I have and (sadly) often use Kubota's Digital Fill Flash.

Attempted a little dodge, but seems to be a little less controlable.

Did a little clone too where needed.

One thing I love about the Digital Fill Flash is that you can adjust little and go directly into the action and adjust the curve. That is what seemed to work the best.

I'll have get print a couple and see tho!!
