Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Indeed it’s true. Your eyes are the first thing a person looks at when they see you. So, you have to make sure you have beautiful lashes to bat at them when they stare into your eyes.
Here are the top 5 mascaras that will definitely make your eyes pop:
Tarte- Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

This mascara comes in both waterproof and non-waterproof. It gives volume but not so much of length and curl. However, I must say, this mascara is THE ONE if you’re:
- going out from day to night and have no time to go home to freshen up
- going to rub your eyes a lot
- going to sweat
It is so long-lasting that when I put it on for a 30-hour flight, I walked out of the plane looking freshen up and glammed up, without looking like a raccoon.
Marc Jacobs Beauty- O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara

Fun fact: Marc Jacobs was asked what his favorite color was, and he answered “Glitter”. I’m impressed by Marc Jacobs’ beauty products as they are pretty decent, to be honest. This mascara comes in 6 different colors. What’s great about this mascara? This brush actually helps define your lashes, keeping them separated while volumizing and curling them. Your eyelashes will stay curled all day without leaving any smudges. Also, bonus, Marc Jacobs mascara can last for a really long time as the product does not dry up like other mascaras. I owned one for almost 2 years and when I took it out to check if it’s dried up like the Sahara desert, it did not.
LANCÔME- Grandiôse Waterproof Mascara

Lancome has always been one of my favorite, top choice mascaras that I’ve been using for years. This mascara is easy to apply as it is designed ergonomically for convenient application. This is an all in one mascara as it lengthens, volumizes and curls every strand of your eyelashes. It automatically makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. For those of you who have very little or short eyelashes, fret not, this mascara will give you hope and life. With this mascara, you’ll have doll eyes and be looking like Betty Boop.
Benefit Cosmetics- They’re Real! Mascara
Not to brag, but, I am lucky to be blessed with quite long and thick lashes. And when I put on 3 layers of mascara, I usually get asked: “Are those eyelash extensions?”. And then I get to humblebrag by replying “No, they’re real.” while batting my eyelashes at them. So when Benefit Cosmetics came out with this mascara, I was giggling in my heart as I can relate to that statement. This mascara actually has the perfect bristles to catch every single eyelash on your eyelids, brushing them to make them thicker and longer. The roundish tip will curl the corner lashes too, whilst making your lashes dense. If you want to secretly brag, use this, people will stare at your lashes and wait for the compliments to splash in.
Maybelline- The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara

Don’t assume that only the expensive cosmetic brands have the best mascaras. Drugstore brands have really great mascaras too. This was my go-to and favorite mascara during high school days, days when I just discovered make-up and experimenting different looks. Do not underestimate or belittle this mascara, for it has its strength and power.
You wouldn’t even need eyeliner with just two layers of this mascara. It gives this effect where it darkens your eyelids, leaving them to look like you have smoky eyes make up going on. This is a cheap but great quality mascara. Best choice if you use mascara on a daily basis with minimal makeup.
So these are the few MUST-caras in my life that I’ve used and would recommend.
