Blending Defined

To understand what went wrong let's start with the definition of blending so there is common understanding.  Blending is the act of working small or large quantities of makeup on to your face to create a seamless finish.  The importance of blending can never be overstated.  Blending involves getting makeup to be absorbed properly into your skin to avoid streaks, harsh lines, and patches.  These inconsistencies can ruin your look and cause your makeup to look rough.  If don't incorrectly, blending can have the opposite effect of the desired look.
