In the past, my eyeshadow usually consisted of natural colors, such as using only browns. However, I'm trying to step out of my shell a little bit and use more drastic colors, such as hints of blue, purples, silvers, and trying to learn how to shade with black. However, when I practice, I can't seem to figure out how to blend it properly, it starts looking very funky.
Can you tell me how you learned how to properly blend the colors together to make the finished product look good? Also- do you need specific brushes, etc?
Please and thank you!

use a primer first so the true color pigments can really show, and realize that the more you blend with black the more gray and dingy it will be, how about applying black last so you have more control of the color, don't blend the entire lid, just the corners and part of the color on the lid (if that's the look your going for). You might also want to use white/beige shadow on top of the primer and underneath the color, to make it pop more. You don't need any special brushes, but I prefer real hair brushes to synthetic, because they pick up the colors better. For eye shadow it will be smallish sized. hope that helps!
