If I’m being completely honest, this makeup routine probably takes me more like 7 minutes, but 5 minutes is a better title. Haha! Before becoming a mom, I used to take a lot longer to get ready, but now, I barely have enough time, so I’ve had to take some steps out of my routine (no more fancy eyeshadow) and find little tricks to make applying my makeup faster.
