There's a good reason that so many makeup artists, hairstylists, and aestheticians these days have hundreds of thousands of followers and blue verified check marks on Instagram, just like their celebrity clientele. It's because their work has become so admired, so respected, so inspiring (and ultimately imitated) that they've earned celebrity status themselves. And it's nights like the 2020 Golden Globes that bring even more attention to the magic they can do with a case of cosmetics, a curling wand, and some face cream.
We get to see their finished products when the stars hit the red carpet, but thanks to social media, we get glimpses — and sometimes full-blown step-by-step, real-time insight — into how they arrived there. (In fact, sometimes we see how they arrived there in how they literally arrived there, getting touchups in the car on the way to the Beverly Hilton.) As early as Saturday morning, celebrities started sharing their prep, like Mandy Moore getting a facial from aesthetician Joanna Czech. Meanwhile, Sofia Vergara picks out jewels, Saoirse Ronan gets a blowout, and Rita Wilson waits for her stylist to show up.
Here are some of the most revealing, funny, and wish-we-were-there moments that Golden Globes-bound celebrities and their glam teams have given us on social media.

Before Mandy Moore walked the red carpet, she made time for a facial from aesthetician Joanna Czech. This sheet mask gets partial credit for Moore's glow tonight.
Nominee Rachel Brosnahan opted for a high-tech facial, courtesy of "beauty wonder queen" Joanna Vargas.
Sofia Vergara couldn't help but show off perhaps the most fun pre-show activity of all time — picking out her diamonds. Lorraine Schwartz brought over an assortment of diamond earrings, bracelets, and we even spy a tiara.
OK, you can't see her face, but we promise that hair belongs to Golden Globe nominee Saoirse Ronan. Stylist Adir Abergel used his own line Virtue Labs to prep Ronan's style for the evening. We can't wait to see the final look.
Rita Wilson's evening isn't off to the best start. She captioned this photo, "what you look like when your hair and makeup person for the @goldenglobes is one and a half hours late even though you booked him in September." Still, we have no doubt she'll pull off a beautiful look in time for tonight's show.
