The Original Beautyblender has long been a red carpet favorite and the 2020 Grammys were no exception. Some of the industry's top makeup artists glammed up our fave celebs for the occasion – like Erika La Pearl for Cardi B, Ash K Holm for Bebe Rexha, and Emily Cheng for Ella Mai – all using the Beautyblender.
Erika La Pearl for Cardi B
Erika gave Cardi B a flawless base with our BOUNCE Liquid Whip Longwear Foundation in shade 3.70 (p.s this isn’t the first time the rapper has worn BOUNCE – in fact, it’s become a staple in Erika’s kit). Erika applied both Cardi’s foundation and concealer with a damp BB for an airbrushed effect.
Ash K Holm for Bebe Rexha
Ash K Holm created Bebe Rexha's fresh and glowing look with the help of Beautyblender. She pr
Emily Cheng for Ella Mai
Emily created a bold yet natural look on Ella Mai. Emily started by applying the Shiseido Synchro skin self-refreshing foundation in 340 with the original BB with the signature Beautyblender bouncing motion.

Pro tip: never drag foundation across the skin – simply bounce your sponge across your face for a natural finish. And always (always!) use the Beautyblender wet.
Emily Cheng’s Beautyblender Tips – “I haven’t done a single makeup since the existence of Beautyblenders without one. I suggest using the beautyblender wet. I start by soaking it in water, squeezing out the excess, and then doing a second soak with an essence like Shiseido’s treatment softner. This will give everything the blender touches an extra boost of moisture”
