If eyes are the windows to our soul then our lashes are the curtains- and those curtains should be fabulous. No look is complete without a few swipes of mascara. Whether you're dashing out the door or getting seriously glommed up for a night out mascara is going to be a necessary item. Below are the top five mascaras I've found on the market currently. Whether money is tight or your beauty budget is full, one of these five is sure to make your eyes pop.

1) Trish McEvoy 'High Volume' Mascara- If your mascara issue is smudging, you're not alone! This mascara seriously stays put like it's mastered a course in makeup beauty obedence school. Think you can't wear mascara on your bottom lashes? This tube will make you think again. Whether you're on the go or out on the town this mascara will last from sun up to sun down!

2) Dior Diorshow Mascara- If mascara went to prom and that prom had a prom queen, this would be her! Dior's mascara boasts a serious cult following among beauty product junkies and everyday women alike. With a formula that will plump your lashes to the max while still separating them, staying in place and not clumping it's no wonder this baby made our best list!

3) CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara- Boasting Covergirl's biggest brush ever, this mascara will plump your lashes like no other! We recommend the Very Black color option for the most pigmented look. 'Feeling fat' isn't usually a phrase we want in our daily vocab, except when it comes to luscious lashes.

4) Clinique High Impact Mascara- This everyday option is great if you love a natural, feathered look. The high pigmented color formula makes it so you only need a coat or two to get great results. This gets you out the door in a flash and prevents you from putting on a billion layers only to be left with serious clumping.

5) L’Oreal Voluminous Volume Building Waterproof Mascara- Fab beauty buys don't have to cost a ton of money and this is the perfect example. If your lashes need a serious volume boost and your credit card needs some serious rest, this is your new BFF. This mascara is also great if you want to create a super sexy look because it provides a huge pop of color with the ultimate amount of volume.
