What is a blending brush?

A blending brush is fantastic for blending and buffing together eyeshadow colors. This is a small brush meant to help you to smoothly blend colors together, so that you can have a nice, cohesive eyeshadow look. You can also use it for contour, bronzer, and highlighter. 

Our Blending Brush is also cruelty-free and vegan, made with synthetic fibers. It does not shed, and is super easy to wash in between uses! Remember to always wash your brushes to prevent acne and irritation.

How to use a blending brush

To use your blending brush, dip it into the product you’re choosing to use it with, and sweep the product on, gently. It’s important to blend colors and products together in small, light circles to get rid of harsh lines and edges. It can also help to hold the brush lower down on the brush handle itself, to allow for more mobility and lighter pressure.
