    No makeup for either birth, but, like a pp said, I did have perfectly straightened hair. I was fanatical about straightening my hair for the last few weeks of pregnancy just in case I went into labour. I really hate my hair when its not straight, but I'm fine with my skin without makeup.

    What about some tinted moisturizer (I find aveeno has great coverage) and getting your eyelashes tinted? That way, no runny mascara no matter how much you shower/bath/sweat and the moisturizer can be popped on without a mirror at any stage..

    I didn't even think of makeup while in labour

    But my friend made sure her hair and face was done, personal preference if that's what you want then do it

    No makeup for me, i don't think even the best makeup would have held up through labour for me

    No makeup here either! Was the last thing on my mind.

    This time around I may add a little bit after the birth when I am freshening up, looking back at my post labour photos of my and my boys, I look horrible, especially with DS1 as I had gotten extremely sunburnt the morning before I went into labour I looked gross. This is my third and final so hoping for some decent photos this time.

    I put make up on every morning so when I went into labour in the Arvo I was still wearing it, I wear a fair bit and always waterproof mascara so it didnt wear off too much, having said that DH was not allowed to take any photos of me and DS until I'd touched it up and fixed my hair!!

    I knew a girl who did her bikini line before going to hospital.

    You definately can't wear nail polish in theatre for any reason. They actually took mine off one time.

    With ds1 we went in late at night after we ha already been in that morning. I must of had about 10 showers that day so no make up. With ds2 I was getting induced so braided my hair the night before and put my make up on in the morning. Every morning I was up showered and make up on before my ob came for the morning check up at around 7.
