They say getting ready is half the fun of going out. And if your routine is anything like Lea Michele's for the 2018 Golden Globes, that saying is rooted in the absolute truth.
A few hours before one of the biggest events in Hollywood, the actress and singer invited her talented glam squad over for some bubbly and snacks while they prepped her hair, nails, makeup, and of course, her wardrobe.
