Wearing a full face of makeup while commuting is a dangerous game. With the situation in this country, you can never know whether your makeup will still be there by the time you get to your destination. We're here to help ensure that your makeup stays plakado even while you'e in transit!
Keep scrolling for recommendations that will make a full face of makeup that's hulas- and commute-proof:
Primer: Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser
An important first step in any makeup routine is smoothing on a primer. It ensures that your foundation will go on with ease and last a lot longer. This primer from Maybelline will smooth out your skin's texture and ~minimize~ your pores for that airbrushed look.

Foundation: Maybelline SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation
I have super duper oily skin. As in, I oil up even though I'm in a very cold environment like our office. (How does that even happen???) So, it's always a struggle for me to find a foundation that can stick to my skin all day long. When I tried this one from Maybelline, it didn't go ANYWHERE. I was impressed. Even though I oiled up a bit by midday, it was the kind that looked glowy and not "dear-god-please-give-this-girl-a-blotting-paper." Plus, it gives your skin full coverage. You only need one pump to cover your entire face.

Concealer: L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer
This is Heart Evangelista's favorite concealer, so you know it's good. Past products in the L'Oréal Infallible line worked super well with the humid weather of our country, and this concealer is no different. It's extremely full coverage, and the best part is that it's still pretty affordable. I think the only thing it lacks is its ability to make me look like Heart, LOL!

Setting Powder: Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder
Baking is the heart of an ~effective~ hulas-proof makeup routine, if you ask me. Laura Mercier's loose setting powder has been raved about for so many years now, and it really does live up to the hype. It's available in translucent and translucent medium deep, so you don't have to worry about flashback if you have a deeper skin tone.

Blush: Careline Oil Control Blush-on
IMO, blush is something that you should never skip in your everyday makeup routine. It gives you a healthy flush, especially if you have pale or sallow skin. This blush from Careline is well on its way to becoming a cult favorite due to its low price point and intense pigmentation. It also controls the oil on your cheeks.

Contour: Happy Skin Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit
Contour is something that's not really needed in your everyday makeup routine, but it helps for when you need to look ~super snatched~ for events or special occassions. This contour and highlighting powder palette from Happy Skin is fuss-free and comes with helpful instructions if you're a makeup newbie.

Lipstick: Vice Cosmetics x BT21 Phenomenal Velvet Liquid Lipstick
Creamy lipsticks aren't really gonna do the trick if you're sweating while commuting and you have a full day ahead of you. (Unless you're okay with reapplying a lot.) Liquid lipsticks really are the way to go for this one. If you want the coverage and longevity that a liquid lipstick offers sans the drying feeling, try ~velvet~ liquid lipsticks. The velvet liquid lipsticks from Vice Cosmetics' latest release (which is a collaboration with BT21! Check out the swatches here.) have a pillowy-soft formula that's comfortable on the lips and dries down matte.

Highlighter: Colourette x The Kings Facegloss
Oily-skinned gals tend to steer clear of using highlighter because of fear of looking like a disco ball in a not cute way, but the trick is to use a powder highlighter. This highlighter from Colourette's collaboration with the Kings will make you look ~glowy~ and not oily.

Setting spray: MAC Prep + Prime Fix+
The final step for a commute-proof makeup routine is to set everything in place with a setting spray to make sure that nothing slides off your face while you're in transit. Since you used a lot of powders, this setting spray from MAC will make your face look less "powdery" and more skin-like.
