How the celebrities prepped for the Golden Globes

It was all about sheet masks and glam squads...

Every awards season, we watch the best TV and film stars walk the red carpet and stare in awe at their make-up and hair creations. One by one, they inspire us. And last night was no exception, with our favourite celebrities walking the red carpet and inspiring us with the best beauty looks seen at the Golden Globes.

But before they hit the red caret, they had to go through a lot of prep. And this year, sheet masks were favoured above everything else. From Julia Louis-Dreyfuss to Drew Barrymore, silver screen sirens across Hollywood plastered themselves with vitamin and mineral infused face masks to plump their skin and give their complexions a radiant glow.

They’re prepared with exactly the right amount of product for your skin and your face can do nothing but soak up the goodness while it’s resting under the fabric, so it makes for a seriously relaxing to start to a high intensity evening.

So, where did these fabulous things first come from? Like a number of cult beauty products that have popped up on our Insta-feeds of late, the sheet mask originated in Asia where it has played a key role of the K-beauty phenomenon from Korea.
