Getting a manicure, doing your makeup, and even doing a face mask are all pretty standard beauty-prep activities ahead of a big event — but so is bleaching your upper lip. Ahead of the 2020 Emmy Awards, Yara Shahidi shared a video on Instagram of what beauty prep really looks like, not just the glitz and glam parts.

In the video, Shahidi's upper lip is smeared with a white cream as she jams to some music in the background. "Giving you Emmy's prep realness ayyy," read the caption on her video. Although this year's awards program will be held virtually, many stars are live-steaming into the show dressed in full gowns and tuxedos and hair and makeup. As much as we love to see the finished look, we're living for this realness.
