Mama Pauses Between Contractions to Put on Full Makeup Like a #Boss (PHOTOS)

No two deliveries are ever alike. With my kids I was sobbing and cursing like a longshoreman, while New York makeup artist Alaha Majid was applying mascara and contour makeup before she even met her daughter.

How much do I love this mama doing things her way when it came to labor and delivery? I luff her! Check it out. 

Three weeks ago at this time I was finishing up my makeup and getting ready for my princess to make her appearance. Yes, I was doing my makeup while I was in labor! ��� I was pausing during contractions and picking up where I left off once the contractions passed. I only packed some of my favorite products in my hospital bag... @morphebrushes 35O eyeshadow palette @marcbeauty remarcable foundation @hudabeauty @shophudabeauty lashes in "sophia" @anastasiabeverlyhills contour kit @mikasabeauty brushes and holder @royallangnickel MODA brushes @benefitcosmetics stay don't stray eyeshadow palette @gerardcosmetics brow bar to go @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade @brian_champagne hydraplex @doseofcolors liquid lipsticks @jeffreestar @jeffreestarcosmetics velour liquid lipsticks And a few other products.

She was wearing false eyelashes during delivery! I can't even wear false eyelashes when making a cup of coffee without looking like a spider decided to crawl onto my eye and then escape. Check out her setup on her hospital tray table:

This is making me feel like a total ninny because I couldn't even put on Chapstick between contractions. Plus I would have knocked over everything on the table. But it's not like Alaha didn't have any help, because her husband was by her side -- not telling her to push or breathe, but strobing her gorgeous cheekbones. 

And how cute are mama and baby after all was said and done? 

Strolling with the love of my life. â�¤ï¸ï¿½

So many congratulations to this gorgeous mama for having such an awesome birth experience that she was able to celebrate it how she wanted to, with some killer eyeliner and some perfectly lined lips. I love how she incorporated doing something she loves and is amazingly talented at into her birth experience.

It's exactly how I did it too, but just swap blush and lip liner for swearing and demanding a milkshake.
