It's good to know that when it comes to preparing for a big night like the Emmy Awards, celebrities did not all wake up with perfect skin, hair, and makeup. Sure, they may have a team of pros to help them look their best, but there are still plenty of DIY  beauty treatments, last-minute manicures, and even the occasional kitchen sink hair wash involved in creating that final look.
