8 Mascaras That Won't Give You Raccoon Eyes

With stick-straight lashes like mine, it's always been a challenge building a fringe that points anywhere but down. That's why I always reach for waterproof mascaras. They give my wispy lashes a lift, and because of their budge-proof ingredients, they never end up running or smudging under my eyes.
So, as the temp and humidity start to climb, I find myself falling back on tried-and-true tubes that I know will hold a curl and survive the elements. Sure, these stubborn formulas are tricky to take off, but a good oil-based makeup remover (my favorite is Lather's cleansing oil) makes quick work of all that inky, clingy color.
