    I don't think having make-up on really crossed my mind during labour. I did start out with my hair up neatly but by the end it was out & mussed up. I was sweaty & spotty (skin wasn't in the best condition during pregnancy) but I'm happy with the picture DF took of me & DD.

    I voted natural, but then remembered that I was not with DD! I woke up early AM with labour pains, and got out of bed, got dressed, brushed my hair and put on some light makeup (my normal daily routine). It wasn't with the plan of having a baby while looking presentable, more just that it was my usual habit at that time of day. If I'd gone into labour at midnight, I don't think I'd have bothered!

    The morning of my induction, I got out of bed, had a shower, shaved my armpits and legs, popped on my concealer, foundation, blush, eyeliner and mascara and went off for my induction : D
    When it was time to push my little dude out, the midwife was more concerned about my makeup than I was. She got up, took a wet wipe and wiped away my panda eyes lol She was cute.
    I'll probably wear makeup for my second baby as well.. Depending on my situation.

    I put light make up before I went to the hospital, I laboured at home til 5cms, some foundation, blusher and eyeshadow.

    BY the time I pished DS out 6 hours later my make up was a distant memory! To be honest I look HORRIBLE in my pic, but I still love it, its my first pic with DS

    I took my full makeup bag with me to the hospital though and puit my make up on the 3 mornings I was there after my shower... as I do at home.

    End of the day it depends on how fast the whole process goes lol if I have time then yes I completely intend on wearing make up. Not a full face of heavy make up but natural day normal make up for sure. It's not overly important but I'd like to look somewhat presentable during something that is surely going to rob me of some dignity lol! may as well do it looking semi decent

    I don't understand how it stays on if you're wearing make up. My priority was a shower. I would shower before going to the hospital and I made sure my hair was washed. I've attended a few births and no one has worn make-up. I imagine it to look very out of place, like women who wear make-up to the gym.

    I wear foundation everyday even if I am just staying at home, so I yes I wore foundation but most of it came off I would say during the labour and I didn't reapply or anything - it was the last thing from my mind once the contractions really set in.
