Hospital bag essentials for giving birth vary for everyone. For some, clean clothes and toiletries top the list, while for others it’s all about a good book, a calming playlist and their comfiest slippers.
But forget the post-birth snap for Instagram and family albums, Majid applied a full-face of makeup during her labour. Her drug-free labour, we might add. (Watch: Four genius makeup hacks from a professional makeup artist. Post continues after video.)
A makeup artist and beauty blogger boasting over 80,000 Instagram followers, the 27 year old used it as a way to relax in between contractions.
Three weeks ago at this time I was finishing up my makeup and getting ready for my princess to make her appearance. Yes, I was doing my makeup while I was in labor! ??? I was pausing during contractions and picking up where I left off once the contractions passed. I only packed some of my favorite products in my hospital bag… @morphebrushes 35O eyeshadow palette @marcbeauty remarcable foundation @hudabeauty @shophudabeauty lashes in “sophia” @anastasiabeverlyhills contour kit @mikasabeauty brushes and holder @royallangnickel MODA brushes @benefitcosmetics stay don’t stray eyeshadow palette @gerardcosmetics brow bar to go @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade @brian_champagne hydraplex @doseofcolors liquid lipsticks @jeffreestar @jeffreestarcosmetics velour liquid lipsticks And a few other products.
