Tips: Blending!

Disclaimer: Nu spun ca asta e singura metoda care exista, incerc doar sa explic modalitatea mea . Nu trebuie sa o luati drept litera de lege.

Disclaimer: I am not stating that this is the only way to do it, Im just trying to explain my method. Adapt it to your needs!  


Am primit aceasta intrebare in requesturile de la giveaway'ul Sigma asa ca m'am gandit sa va explic (virgula) cum procedez eu, printr'un tutorial simplu, back to schoolish xD


I got asked to say more about this in the requests from my Sigma giveaway, so i decided to explain my way in a back to schoolish tutorial.  

Lets begin!

Step 1: With an eye shading brush (in my case, Sigma E55), apply a shimmery white all over the lid, after you used a primer (Virgin BY UD over Too Faced Shadow Insurance).
Pasul 1: Cu o pensula pentru fard (in cazul meu E55 de la Sigma), aplicati un alb sidefat pe toata pleoapa mobila, dupa ce ati folosit un primer (UD Virgin peste Too Faced Shadow Insurance).
Just primer

UD Virgin

Step 2:  Flip the brush on the other side, or just clean it with a dry tissue and use a matte dark brown as a crease color (in my case, UD Buck). Apply it in the crease and in the outer V. 
Pasul 2: Cu aceiasi pensula, folosind cealalta parte, folositi un fard maro mat (Ud Buck), pe care il aplicati in pliu si in V'ul extern.
Step3: As you can see, the previous color is far from perfect, therefore, with a blending brush of your choice (in my case, Sephora crease 10), pick up a beige eyeshadow, one or two shades darker than your skin tone (i used UD Naked). Then, in circular strokes, go over the edges of the dark brown. Dont sweep it over, rather do small circles until the sharp angles disappear. 
Pasul 3: Dupa cum vedeti, culoarea precedenta nu arata bine, asa ca, folosind pensula de blending preferata (in cazul meu, Sephora crease 10), o "bagati" ;D intr'un fard bej cu o nuanta, doua mai inchis decat culoarea pielii (UD Naked). Apoi, cu miscari circulare, treceti peste liniile fardului maro inchis. Nu faceti miscari inainte si inapoi peste linie, ci miscari scurte si "rotunde".

Step 4: Take a dark shimmery brown (Ud Hustle) and, with a pencil brush (Sigma E30), use it on the outer V and a bit in the crease, to give the look a bit more depth. 
Pasul 4: Luati un fard maro inchis, sidefat pe o pensula "creion" (Sigma E30) si folositi'l in V'ul exterior, mergand usor spre pliul ochiului. Astfel, ochiul va avea mai multa intensitate.

Step 5: With the same blending brush as before, use circular motions over the color, to blend it with the other two - i forgot to take a picture of this step, but you will see it in the next pictures :D 
Pasul 5: Cu aceiasi pensula de blending, insistati pe culoarea inchisa, cu miscari circulare, pentru a se amesteca in celelalte doua - am uitat sa fac poza acestui pas, dar il veti vedea in continuare.

Step 6: Take a fluffy brush and dip it in the first color used, that shimmery white. Apply it on the brow bone, dispersing most of the color on the arch, then slowly, drag it dow to blend with the crease colors. This way, you'll get rid of any harsh lines. 
Pasul6: Luati pe o pensula "stufoasa" putin din fardul alb folosit prima data si aplicati'l pe arcada, concentrand majoritatea culorii fix sub sprancene. Apoi, "trageti" culoarea in jos, pentru a se amesteca in nuantele din pliu. Astfel, evitati orice fel de linie dura.

Last Step: With the shimmery dark brown, contour your eyes using the same pencil brush or an angled one, apply mascara and we are done :D A perfect and easy day time look, that shouldnt take more than 10 minutes.
Ultimul pas: Cu maroul sidefat, conturati ochiul, folosing pensula creion sau una unghiulara, aplicati mascara si gata :D Un look perfect pentru zi, care nu ar trebui sa ia mai mult de 10 minute.


Final look:


To sum it up:\In concluzie:
1. Use circular motions rather than sweeping motions - circular blends, sweeping just moves the color from a side to the other - you can use the last method to reapply some color if you overblended, avoiding the harsh lines by doing so.
1. Folositi miscari circulare in loc de miscari dintr'o parte in cealalta - astefel se blenduieste mai bine, miscarea in evantai mai mult "muta" culoarea de colo colo - ultima fiind o metoda foarte buna daca vreti sa reaplicati un fard care poate s'a pierdut in celelalte, evitand astfel liniile dure.

2. Apply your highlighter last, its a great way to do final touch ups. If you use a matte one, feel free to run it along all the dark lines. 
2. Aplicati highligtherul la urma, e o metoda grozava pentru ultimele retusuri. Daca folositi un fard mat, treceti peste toate liniile inchise.

3. Use a light hand - better to lair the color than having to wipe it off after. 
3. Folositi o mana usoara - mai bine "construiti" culoarea decat sa aplicati prea multa.

4. Avoid over blending - personally, i find that not enough blending is better than an overblended, muddy color. 
4. Evitati overblendingul - personal, prefer o linie mai dura unei culori care pare murdara.

5. Most importantly, PRACTICE! You might not get it right the first time, but you will, sooner or later. 
5. Cel mai important, EXERSATI! S'ar putea sa nu va iasa din prima, dar cu timpul o sa ajungeti unde vreti ;)

Va rog din inima sa'mi spuneti daca v'a fost de folos postarea si daca mai vreti sa vedeti chestii de genul.

O zi faina!
