While waiting to dilate, there’s plenty of time to apply makeup, Polizzi advises. “I waited 27 hours and the whole time I just put on makeup and watched cartoons,” she said. But hospitals are “boring” with blank white walls so a nice pink or red lip is key to looking your best. Advises the reality star: “Stay away from the nudes.”
“Remember to bring an extra pair of eyelashes in your purse in case you are not at home when your water breaks,” the petite Jersey Shore star says. “Just do like I did and bring a whole box.”
Dressing right for delivery is also essential. “Hospital gowns are ugly,” so bring your own, Polizzi tells Kardashian, suggesting something leopard print and Dolce & Gabbana to spice up her birthing look. Hoop earrings, she adds, get caught in hair extensions so a nice pair of diamond studs are a must to help her “look really cute,” Polizzi adds.
A scarf is key to hiding a puffy face. “Trust me, you are going to be bloated and you’re going to have like a million double chins to you are gonna wanna cover that s––t up,” Polizzi urges. Pedicures are also key. “You don’t want any gross calluses because your feet are literally in the air for everyone to see.”
