Delivering a baby into the world might be a beautiful experience, but let’s admit it, it’s not always a super glamorous one. Although, by the looks of many a public-facing, just-gave-birth picture, an outsider might think differently. The secret: Having a little stash of makeup in the delivery room.

We’re not going to lie, we had some cosmetic help for those first glow-y “baby and mommy’s first pic” Instagrams. We don’t feel bad about it, and neither does this writer and mom who shared her story of disguising her 3-hours-of-pushing-induced broken capilairies with a few choice products.

On the other hand, we also get how crazy it might seem to spend time making up your face or getting an on-location blow-out to document such a raw and natural experience. So, we want to know what you think: Do you give a yay or nay to makeup in the delivery room?
