Makeup During Labor Is The Latest Beauty Trend Taking Over Instagram


Every day we see the birth of a new trend on our Instagram feeds right? And while some of them are doable and super easy to recreate, others are a tad difficult as they are totally bizarre. We shall leave you to decide in which category does this new beauty trend fall under!

Labour makeup is currently making the rounds on Instagram and we have some thoughts. As the name suggests, women are doing full face of glam, while being super pregnant in the labour room! This new beauty trend is taking the world by storm as pregnant women are all about glamourizing their stunning faces before their little one(s) arrive.

While this beauty trend has gotten a lot of mixed reviews (rightfully so), there are a lot of people who believe that applying makeup before going into labour is sort of meditative. Plus on the bright side, you are 'ready' to post pictures with your newborn on Instagram, no filter required!

Women are not only taking their hospital bags but also their makeup kits before getting admitted. While some do their own makeup, there are others who hire their own glam squad. Talk about being extra AF!

New York-based make-up artist, Alaha Karimi, was the first one to introduce labour makeup way back in 2016 when she shared her makeup photos which included dramatic eyeshadow, proper contouring, competed with falsies, on social media. Now beauty mavens all over are following her footsteps and doing makeup before giving birth.
