Learn to Blend Colors
Some professional makeup tips are:
Let’s look at how to blend the colors for your eye shadow. First, add the base, start on the inside of your eye lid and move to the outside. Ensure an even and thin coat.
Now, apply the lighter color. A technique used by professionals is to dab delicately with the fingers, in a tapping like motion, using the ring finger. So the contact is gentle and the color is even.
You can now apply the darker color. But make sure to you start from the end of the eye and go up till the middle. Again, use your finger to mix the two colors together at meeting point.
The final step is to use a brush to add a lighter color trailing the upper part of your eye. The motions of the brush will blend the colors in together, and the colors will seamlessly mix into each other. To blend more than one color, the same principles will apply.
