Sheet Masks Were the Star of Golden Globes Prep

Hollywood's leading ladies took to Instagram to show their love for a Korean skincare staple.

I’m an awards show junkie but, to be honest, it’s mostly about the beauty and fashion. I love drooling over all of the gowns and how they’re paired with hair and makeup and jewels. And, since the rise of Instagram, I really, really like getting a sneak peek into the prep work that goes into getting stars red carpet ready.

Last night’s Golden Globes prep was all about the sheet mask!

For anyone unfamiliar with this odd-looking beauty trend, sheet masks are basically face-shaped pieces of fabric that are soaked in special serums to deliver a quick boost to your skin. Different formulas promise different results, but most are either used to hydrate, brighten, or treat fine lines. Touted as a quick way to get a smoother, glowing complexion, sheet masks are a huge trend in skincare right now.

If you’re looking to experiment with a sheet mask before your next big night out (or, you know, while binging on Netflix), here are a few affordable options to try.
