The science behind Beauty Blending

The science behind Beauty Blending

Makeup products like foundation, eye shadows, bronzers, and blush can produce a classical finish only when blending is executed in an effective way. The right kind of thinking will show that blending gives you the much-needed perfection you desire. The trick is to make it look natural.But that flawless look is impossible to achieve if foundation and blush lines are visible. Here’s how to blend your makeup seamlessly without a smudge or line in sight.

Hydrate

Before applying any makeup, you need to make sure your skin is nice and hydrated to allow for the smoothest application. Applying foundation to dry skin can sometimes highlight patchiness and unevenness. Massage a moisturizer or facial oil into the skin every morning to ensure a nice and smooth base.

Know your tools

While fingers are a common choice to blend makeup in a rush, our experts highly recommend using a foundation brush or beauty blender to ensure you get a clean and even blend. Applying makeup with your fingers will just move the product around on the skin, but blending with a brush or sponge with short, gentle strokes enables you more control and less makeup application or retouching. One of the most common places to get uneven makeup marks or lines is right along the jaw. Make sure you give this area a once-over with a blender or brush and you can even apply a little foundation on the neck to balance out your skin tone.

Eye Shadow

Never blend with the same brush you used to apply the shadow. Instead of blending, you’re just applying more shadow because there is still product on the brush, and if you’re working with more than one shade, i.e. a smoky eye, you are spreading all of the colours around the entire eye area. Instead, use a clean brush and blend by sweeping the brush back and forth in a large windshield wiping motion, followed by smaller circles.

Bronzer

When applying bronzer, never brush the product in a straight line. Instead, we recommend applying in soft, sweeping motions. This sculpts angles on the face, such as under the cheekbones and along the jaw line, without looking harsh.

Foundation

First prep your skin with a moisturizer and primer to create a flawless canvas. Then apply foundation with a damp sponge. Blend starting from the centre of the face and work your way out. Apply the product by dabbing, not brushing across. This eliminates any lines along the forehead or jaw. In addition to this, don’t forget to blend foundation into the neck for a more realistic coverage.

Blush

While smiling, sweep a medium-sized brush with powder blush from the apple of your cheek, up along your cheekbone and to the top of your ear. Again, make sure to always swirl the product so you don’t end up with harsh lines. An important tip to remember: skip the big powder brushes. The bigger the brush, the less your blush will register on the skin because it’s being applied to such a large surface area.

Check Yourself

Find yourself some natural light. Bathroom lighting can sometimes cast a haze on our skin, making it difficult to see if our makeup matches our skin or if it’s been perfectly blended. Natural light allows you to spot inconsistencies, and you can fix them without having to start all over again. If you have no natural light in your house, keep a foundation brush in your makeup bag, and buff out any imperfections once you find some good lighting.
