9 Beauty Selfies That Have Us Insanely Excited for Oscars

The 2014 Oscars are just days away but stars have been primping and preparing for months in the run up to Hollywood's biggest party. Nothing captures the work required to be camera-ready like the beauty selfie — those behind-the-scenes moments snapped by stars before they carefully sliding themselves into limos en route to the red carpet.

Whether it's a do-it-yourself grooming project à la Diddy or glam-squad efforts required by Heidi Klum or Gwyneth Paltrow before the Golden Globes (it takes a village, people!), we love the sneak peeks these leading ladies (and men) offer as they get ready for their moment in the spotlight. 

Tune in to Yahoo's Oscar headquarters Sunday to check out our favorite beauty selfies of the nominees and presenters, plus all our red carpet galleries and complete coverage of the 86th Annual Academy Awards!
