If, like us, you were glued to your Instagram feeds on Sunday night as the Golden Globes red carpet prep got underway (No? Just us?!) then you might have noticed a fondness for a certain South Korean-inspired skincare treat. That’s right, sheet masks were big news for A-listers during their pre-party pamper sessions – and it’s not hard to understand why. Fuss-free and easy to use, these skin treatments are a great go-to when you want to get your complexion looking great, fast! Here are our pick of the best, inspired by some of our fave leading ladies…
There’s no doubt that our fave Game of Thrones actress has age on her side – there’s nothing like a naturally youthful glow, after all! However, younger complexions can still benefit from a sheet mask tailored to concerns like excess oil, unwanted blemishes, and pesky pores. Nails Inc. have just recently turned their attention to skincare, and their Face inc by Nails inc Instant Detox Cleansing Sheet Mask is packed with acacia and ginkgo leaf extracts to reduces visible imperfections in just 15 minutes.
If we could pick a Hollywood A-lister to be BFFs with then there’s no doubt that it would be La La Land star (and winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy), Emma Stone! We reckon that getting ready with her before the big night would have been a barrel of laughs – as illustrated with lip mask selfie! Give this Korean skincare trend a try yourself with STARSKIN® DREAMKISS™ Second Skin Lip Masks. The bio-cellulose mask is enriched with plumping and moisturising ingredients for the perfect selfie-ready pout.
When you fancy going on full-on glamour puss, there’s no doubt that a brightening sheet mask is the perfect place to start! (And if we look 10% as incredible as Drew did afterwards, then we’ll be over the moon!) The MaskerAide Pre Party Prep Sheet Mask has been formulated specifically with occasions in mind. Not only does it contain fruit extracts to energise and brighte skin, but it doubles as a great make-up primer if you’re heading straight out!
We loved all the snaps that The Martian star’s stylist shared of Jessica and her team during the lead-up to the Golden Globes. TV binge and lunch in bed anyone? As something of an awards season pro, Jessica doesn’t need much assistance when it comes to achieving glowing skin. But, if you need more of a helping hand, the STARSKIN® RED CARPET READY™ Face Mask will deliver moisture-boosting amino acids for dewy skin in just 15 minutes.
Finally, comedian and Veep actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus proved that everyone can rock a #sheetmaskselfie – even if you need your specs to see what’s going on! If you want to target specific skin issues, like tiredness, then the Skin Republic Collagen Under Eye Patches are the ultimate quick fix! Pop them in the fridge first, for extra cooling effects, then apply them beneath your eyes for 30 minutes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
