So I recently bought a set of makeup brushes and a couple of new palettes. I have been trying out different looks. The one problem I have beem having is that when I start adding different colours and blending, it all blends into one colour instead of standing out. Should I be using different brushes to apply different colours? Maybe I need to do a better job cleaning the brushes. If anyone is good with makeup and could give me some tips, that would be great. Thanks :)

I mean, you CAN have a whole shitload of brushes, if that's yr style.
I like to just use 1 or 2 brushes, and keep a white hand towel (like the kind hotel rooms have) on hand.
Then after yr done with 1 color, just swab the heck out of the brush, back and forth on the towel, until it doesn't mark the towel anymore. At that point, you should be totally good for another color.
(You should still wet-clean yr brushes when yr done -- at least a couple times a week, if not every time -- for sanitary reasons.)
If that still doesn't work -- like, if everything is still blending into a single color -- then you can try 3 things:
1) Smaller brush
2) Bigger areas of individuals colors (if the style allows)
3) Better eye primer -- so the original areas "stick" better
Do you use an eye primer? If not, that might be the issue, right there.1
