Some people don’t realize how important blending their eyeshadow is. Basically if you don’t blend out your eyeshadow, it will look harsh and ‘unfinished’ (Unless you’re doing it on purpose on the outer V of your lid). I can’t stress you enough how important it is to blend the colors on your crease.
Unblended eyeshadow will make your makeup look unprofessional and (as i said before) unfinished. Blending is not that hard, all you need to do is swipe your blending brush on your crease with a windshield motion or a circular motion back and forth.
Here’s my top 3 blending brushes :
Sigma E35 is a tapered blending brush, meaning it’s round and the bristles are long.
Mac 217 was made with the same material as the Sigma E35 which is a densely packed fiber that can easily pick up a color. This one is flatter that the sigma, more like pressed. It’s more precise when you pack a color on your crease.
Mac 224 is a regular blending brush, it was made with a soft fibers. You can pick up color, but it wont show up on your eyes. I use this purely for blending (without any eyeshadow on it).
I do aware that those 3 brushes are a little bit expensive (especially the Mac ones). So i have one alternative, the ELF blending brush works amazing well. Although the bristles are made with natural hair, it blends incredibly good. Plus it’s only a dollar!
Here’s some other examples of unblended eyeshadows.
