I'm sure you all saw how Kate looked after giving birth.
This is how I looked. I bit my lip pretty hard when pushing out Tommy, so I actually had a fat lip for several days.
Now, a lot of people were posting how they couldn't believe how good Kate looked. Well, for starters, she has this fabulous team that helps keep her looking amazing. Do you think they'd push her out there looking like ass? No. I sort of wish they did, because it would be more relatable, but I get the royals have an image to maintain.
I came across several posts telling mothers if they want to look like Kate, that they should brush their hair and put on some makeup. Don't settle for looking like ass after giving birth.
Well, you know what? After pushing out a person, makeup was the last thing from my mind. This is what I wanted most of all:
--something to eat
I did not think, "Oh! I need to comb my hair. I don't want to scare my infant who doesn't even know what her nose is yet." I did not tell my husband, "Hand me my blush."
I'm okay with looking out of it after I gave birth, because I SQUEEZED OUT A PERSON. I am not a royal, therefore I can forgo the lipstick.
So I went makeup free for many weeks after having a baby. And that's okay with me.
