Smudge-Proof Mascaras

Two mascaras have changed my makeup-wearing life. Blinc Mascara doesn't smudge even after a workout and shower, and Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara  survives a vigorous eye rub (after decades of mascara-free living, old habits die hard). Yet both wash away with only warm water and gentle pressure, no makeup remover required. Along with the beauty team's other suggestion—skip eye cream in the morning—I'm now bright-eyed from my A.M. commute until bedtime. —Michelle Shih
