This Woman's Makeup Looks Date-Night Ready, but She's Actually in Labor

Woman Applies Makeup While in Labor

While we've heard of some women getting delivery-room blowouts and prelabor lash extensions, we've never seen someone give birth looking as glam as Instagram user makeupbyalaha. The New York-based makeup artist shared images of herself propped up in a hospital bed surrounded by palettes as she applied a full face of product . . . despite contractions.

"I was pausing during contractions and picking up where I left off once the contractions passed," she explained to her followers. She even revealed which of her favorite makeup items made the cut into her hospital bag. You'll notice that there are at least 15 brushes, a 35-pan shadow palette, contouring products, Beautyblenders, and more.

While not all moms would go this far with their prebaby beauty routine, we have to applaud Alaha's dedication to her craft β€” and her ability to create such a gorgeous makeup masterpiece while in pain! Read on to see all the photos.
