To start blending your eyeshadow colors, take your Blending Brush and carefully blend the two colors together using a quick back and forth motion similar to a windshield wiper through the crease of your eyelid. This will create a seamless flow between the two colors and the perfect bold or everyday look. Next, go back to that crease of your eye and blend that color as well. From here, simply repeat those two steps until you have the look you’re going for, and for each color, you’ve applied to your lids!
