14 Behind-The-Scenes Beauty Moments From The SAG Awards

Before the afterparty is the award show and before the award show is the pre-show. But before the pre-show is where the majority of the fun actually goes down. Sure, the red carpet is great — we spot trends, catch the clapbacks, and witness tide-changing interviews. However, one of our favorite pastimes includes hunting down the behind-the-scenes moments you don’t see on the carpet. In fact, if you really think about it, the real magic happens before the show even starts. And, as you might guess, this year’s SAG Awards is no different.

Behind some of the raddest beauty looks of the year are countless makeup artists, hairstylists, nail artists, and estheticians — and you don’t necessarily need their personal phone number to get the scoop on how they made Hollywood’s biggest stars camera-ready. In fact, all the secrets are at the palm of your hand, literally. Scroll through your Instagram feed and you’ll find pre -pre-show coverage of how stars like Yara Shahidi, Reese Witherspoon, and Nicole Kidman turn out their best looks.

Click ahead to check out our favorite Instagram posts from tonight.

Sadie Sink

Everyone might be talking about Sink’s textured ponytail, but we’re talking about her pretty-in-pink makeup.

Uzo Aduba

Hairstylist Lacy Redway is the creative force behind Aduba’s classic S-wave and broke down exactly how she made it work: “We knew we wanted to do something that felt romantic to compliment her flowy dress,” she says. “Uzo has natural 4C curly hair, but we wanted to stretch out her tightly-coiled curls for a looser wave.”

Saoirse Ronan

Leave it to hairstylist Adir Abergel to add a bit of bling to his client’s updo — and Ronan’s was one of our favorite of the night. However, you’d never guess what that stylish accessory actually is. Abergel wrote in his caption, “I used a thread I found in a vintage shopping excursion while I was traveling to Paris on a job. Finally in good use.”

Nicole Kidman

Kidman may have been running a little behind, but if anyone is going to be fashionably late, it should be a SAG award winner, right?

Laura Dern

Dry sheet masks are the answer to not messing up a perfectly good blow-out — just ask Laura Dern.

Elisabeth Moss

You can’t master the makeup if you don’t nail the skin prep. Moss leaves her facial needs to celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas.

Yara Shahidi

With hair inspired by Diana Ross (the real-life mother of Shahidi’s on-screen mom, Tracee Ellis Ross), her ‘do was easily the focal point of this look.

Reese Witherspoon

Yes, sometimes that $400 blowdryer is worth it.

Mandy Moore

Moore’s disco-inspired waves are all thanks to hairstylist Ashley Streicher and a lot of velcro rollers.

Hong Chau

If you haven’t noticed, makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis loves a bright pink lip on Chau.

Alison Brie

There’s nothing like patting on your lipstick as the perfect final touch. Here, makeup artist Quinn Murphy created Brie’s plush pout with Elizabeth Arden lipstick in a classic red.

Greta Gerwig

Hairstylist John D. proves that a shaggy style always works — even for red carpets.

Taylor Schilling

Nothing can beat a smoldering smoky eye…
