For modern girls, it has already become a habit to talk on social networks about everything that happens in their lives. Daily. It is quite clear that they are simply unable to not share such an important event as the birth of a child. And in order to look attractive and glamorous even during this difficult, painful and not too aesthetic process, expectant mothers bring beauty before childbirth. And they do not just refresh the face with mascara and powder, but do real makeup. By the way, oddly enough, not all users of social networks were delighted with glamorous women in labor.
It would seem: What should a woman think about when she gets to the hospital? Of course, this is only about the upcoming birth and future baby. But it turns out that this is far from the case. A study conducted by the Cosmetify website showed that almost 64% of expectant mothers decide on cosmetic procedures before giving birth. Of these, 65% get hair removal, 57% do manicures, 43% do pedicures, 37% apply self-tanner, and 32% tidy their hair.
When women in labor were asked why they put on beauty before childbirth, the answers were as follows:
- “Because I will be photographed”: 31%.
- “Because visitors will come to me”: 26%.
- “I just don’t want to look tired and ugly”: 22%.
Here are some photos of women in labor who took the time to get real professional make-up.
Blogger Alexis Jayda from California (USA) recorded a real make-up lesson in anticipation of childbirth.
Another beauty, Dana Chavez, supported this idea and also made a complete makeup so that the newborn baby could see his mother in all her glory.
Louisiana resident Leigh Ann Jarell skillfully made herself “smoky ice” in between contractions.
Lindsey Bryan from California posted a photo of herself on Instagram with the caption: “The first alarm turned out to be false, and I decided to take advantage of the unexpected respite.”
A professional makeup artist from New York, Alaha Karimi, decided to give herself a professional wedding makeup before giving birth.
In this photo, makeup artist Teagan Woodforth puts on makeup for her sister. “They called me at 2 am and said that I had contractions. And I, without hesitation, got on a plane and flew to her in Adelaide and even managed to bring beauty to her.”
The desire of expectant mothers to look presentable even during childbirth is, of course, commendable. The main thing is that while thinking about beauty, they should not forget about the safety of both themselves and the baby. “Even those beauty products that say “natural” and “organic” can contain harmful and even very dangerous ingredients. And since your skin absorbs about 60% of what you put on it, you need to be very, very careful,” says New York-based makeup artist Mary Irwin.
According to Mary, before applying makeup, a pregnant woman should read the composition of the product indicated on the label very carefully. “Pay special attention to the first three components, because your cosmetics contain the most of them, and often it is they who bring the greatest harm,” the makeup artist believes. Therefore, the best thing is to take your cosmetic bag to the clinic and consult a doctor who will tell you what you can use and what you can’t.
Interestingly, not all social media users support the new trend to look glamorous even on the delivery table. Here are the comments they left under the photo of the beauties in childbirth:
“And I didn’t even remember about makeup when I gave birth, and I looked terrible in the photo, but I didn’t care. Because it was one of the happiest and most beautiful moments of my life.”
“For me, there is nothing more real and beautiful than a photo that can tell the true story of my birth.”
“What is wrong with people today? They live for social media and even give birth for social media.”
“Soon, women will be doing make-up for newborn babies for Instagram photos.”
And what do you think, is it worth bringing beauty before childbirth or not?
