Before I became a mom, I spent upwards of an hour and a half getting ready each morning. I never skipped the shampoo, my clothes were perfectly pressed, I took the time to groom my brows, and my makeup was always immaculate.

I remember making a promise that I would continue to keep myself manicured and in good shape when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, and while I try my hardest to put my best foot forward each morning, life as a parent is unpredictable and there are days when I simply don’t have a lot of time to devote to my appearance.

The good news is that the wonderful world of YouTube has taught me a lot of great tips and tricks, and thanks to this collection of tutorials, I have finally figured out how to apply flawless makeup in 5 minutes or less!
