Commuting in the Philippines is no easy feat—especially with the large crowd waiting for their ride just like you and let's not forget the hot and cold weather that's either going to melt your makeup or run your mascara. Whether you're riding the train or the traditional jeepney, let's face it—commuting can be a huge pain. But that's not to say that you should skip your beauty routine all together just because your commuting to school threatens to make your beauty look from hero to zero in a snap. Below, we're listing down the basic beauty essentials every college girl who commute needs in order to seal their beauty looks regardless of the blood, sweat, and tears commuting can bring about!

Here's the thing, commuting can be really stressful—especially when you're already running late or when it's a much-dreaded rush hour. But did you know that stress can also cause sebaceous glands to produce more oil, making your face oilier than you would want to. Keep an oil-blotting stick that will keep the oiliness at bay minus the extra stress of wondering where you can throw your oil-blotting sheets afterwards.

Cushion Compact

Try: BB Power Perfection Cushion SPF 50+, PA+++ P1095, The Face Shop

Whether your commute was an ease or a major nightmare, you're bound to retouch your makeup as soon as you get to school. Instead of powdering your face or applying another round of heavy foundation, opt for a cushion compact instead. It gets the job of freshening your look up without clumping. Plus, it makes your beauty looks extra dewy, too!

Sunscreen

Try: Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40 P1849, First Aid Beauty
