How Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, Heidi Klum, and more celebrities get prepped, primped, and pretty for the Emmys

Yahoo Style

With the 2017 Emmy Awards descending upon Hollywood this weekend, the small-screen elite have been frenetically preparing themselves for parties, luncheons, benefits, and the main event: Sunday evening’s awards ceremony. There’s much in the way of tradition and ritual for the Emmy nominees and all the rest of the glitterati who will fill the seats during the 69th anniversary of television’s biggest night. And thanks to the fairly transparent social media platforms, fans and onlookers can get a glimpse into how some of the stars will get ready tonight.

Oprah’s ritual, thus far, has focused on getting her hair and brows down right.



Heidi Klum shared her makeup transformation with her nearly 4 million followers.
