How to blend your makeup for a flawless finish. If you love makeup, you will know that blending is key to creating a flawless look.

Blending different areas of the face requires different skills and techniques. Keep reading for our tips on how to blend your makeup seamlessly without a smudge or line in sight.
Eye shadow can be tricky to get right. The key to creating a beautiful eye shadow look is blending. It’s important to never blend with the same brush you used to apply your shadow. Instead of blending, you are just applying more shadow that is on the brush.
Use a clean brush and blend the brush back and forth in large, windshield wiper motions, followed by circular ones.
It’s crucial to prep your skin with a moisturiser and primer to create a flawless canvas for your foundation. Blend from the center of your face and work your way out. Using a sponge, apply the product by dabbing, not brushing across.
This will eliminate any lines along your forehead and jaw. For more realistic coverage, don’t forget to blend foundation into your neck.
When applying your bronzer, never brush the product in a straight line. Always apply your bronzer in soft, sweeping motions. This will sculpt angles on your face, such as your cheekbones and jaw, without looking harsh.
While smile, sweep blush up along your cheekbone towards your ear. Like your bronzer, make sure to use soft, sweeping motions so you don’t end up with harsh lines.
Try not to use big powder brushes. The bigger your brush, the less blush will register on your skin because it is being applied to such a large area of your face.
