What goes on in your mind when you’re in labour? Positive thinking to get you through the pain? Excitement about meeting your new baby? How about “I need to make sure my makeup is on point”?
For Alaha Majid, a makeup artist in New York, it was the latter. About a month ago, Majid was in labour, and instead of eating ice chips between her contractions, she put on a full face of makeup, contour and all. In a series of Instagram pictures she posted a week ago, Majid is seen lying in a hospital bed, looking into a mirror, and applying makeup:
She explains in the caption exactly how she was able to pull off this feat while going through labor. “I was pausing during contractions, and picking up where I left off once the contractions passed,” writes Majid. Here, she’s blending her undereye concealer, seemingly unfazed by the pain of, you know, birthing a child:
n the caption, Majid says she only packed her favorite products in her makeup bag, including an Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, Huda Beauty lashes, and Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks, among others. “When the contractions got too strong, hubby was there to save the day,” writes Majid in the caption for the photo below:
