    Like many, we typically wear more makeup when cooler weather rolls around. And, even when we’re going for a more fresh-faced look, the one product we always reach for is our handy mascara. So, formulation is of the utmost importance — because nothing ruins our devil-may-care vibe more than mysterious black streaks running down our cheeks.

    But, where does a girl who’s looking for a non-smudgy option turn? Waterproof mascara, of course. Not just any waterproof mascara — one that doesn't sacrifice length, volume, or overall oomph for the sake of an H2O-friendly product. You don’t have to live in a humid environment, or be an Olympic swimmer (or Olympic crier) for that matter, to appreciate their magic.

    In celebration of putting our raccoon-eye days behind us, we've rounded up 14 such mascaras. Click through to see our favorite waterproof, sweat-proof, and sad movie-proof picks. Go ahead, give 'em a swipe.
