I recently read an article where Drew Barrymore talks about a term she coined “#commuterbeauty,” wherein busy gals on the go just don’t have time to get their makeup on before leaving the house. Since moving to San Francisco, my daily commute is usually anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour (the train I take is really, really slow), and I’ve really put that time to use and still have time to spare. I’ve pared down to my beauty essentials (but still haul enough products for a variety of looks) and carry them with me daily. I’ve built it into my morning routine, giving myself just enough time to shower, get dressed, and style my hair before running out to catch the train. I’m not the only gal who’d rather hit the snooze button, either! I see a few other #commuterbeauties applying their makeup on the train every morning as well.

Here’s what I carry in my on-the-go makeup bag:

Are you a #commuterbeauty like me? What’s in your makeup bag?

XO, J

P.S. In writing this post, I realized I was carrying around 5 different mascaras. Whoops! Maybe not as pared down as I thought…

    When I worked for the Super 8, I kept my electric razor in my car. I got pretty good about shaving while driving to work!

      I just died. Thanks, Kyle.

  • Girl, I hear you! I used to live in the East Bay and my daily commute was 3 hours total. I had a makeup bag with just as much stuff toted with me. And I love that you love the Dream Lumi in Radiant — that stuff is BOMB!

      I’m obsessed with Dream Lumi! It’s one of the only products I keep repurchasing over and over again. Glad to hear I’m not the only one keeping it real on the train! ;)

      P.S. Coffee date soon???
