“[Here’s my] Beauty mom to get out the door really fast,” Bailon-Houghton said us. “I go into my son’s bedroom, which is like his playroom, and I let him play, but now I have a little makeup bag in that room and a little basket with my hair in it, so I can watch him and he’s in a safe place and I can do my hair and makeup at the same time.”
Bailon-Houghton also shared that growing up Ever has also helped her prioritize self-care.
