How To Blend Your Makeup

Blending makeup is key to achieving a flawless and even finish! Here are some general tips and tricks:


  • Start with a clean, moisturized face: This creates a smooth canvas for the makeup to adhere to.
  • Use a primer: Primer helps to fill in pores, control shine, and extend the wear of your makeup.

Choose your tools:

  • Makeup sponge: Great for sheer, buildable coverage and a dewy finish. Dampen the sponge before use for better blending.
  • Brushes: Different brushes work for different areas of the face. Use a stippling brush for foundation, a fluffy blending brush for eyeshadow, and a smaller, angled brush for concealer.
  • Beauty blender: Similar to a makeup sponge, but can be more targeted for precise blending.

Blending techniques:

  • Foundation: Apply dots of foundation onto your face and blend outwards using your chosen tool. Don’t forget to blend down your neck!
  • Concealer: Apply concealer under your eyes and blend outwards in a tapping motion. Use a lighter shade to highlight and a darker shade to contour.
  • Eyeshadow: Use lighter shades in the inner corner and crease, and darker shades on the outer corner and lid. Blend the shades together using circular motions with your brush.
  • Blush: Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards towards your temples. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone.
  • Bronzer: Use bronzer to add warmth and definition to your face. Apply it under your cheekbones, on your forehead, and around your jawline. Blend well so it looks natural.

General tips:

  • Less is more: Start with a light amount of product and build it up gradually. You can always add more, but it’s hard to take away.
  • Buff in circular motions: This helps to blend the product seamlessly into your skin.
  • Blend towards your hairline: This will help to avoid harsh lines.
  • Use setting spray: This will help your makeup stay in place all day.

Additional resources:

  • Video tutorials: There are many great video tutorials on YouTube that can show you how to blend different types of makeup.
  • Makeup artist recommendations: Ask a makeup artist for tips on how to blend your makeup based on your specific features and skin type.

Remember, practice makes perfect! The more you blend your makeup, the better you’ll become at it. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find what techniques work best for you.
