Basic usage

Setting an element's blend mode

Use the mix-blend-{mode} utilities to control how an element’s content should be blended with the background.

<div class="flex justify-center -space-x-14">
  <div class="mix-blend-multiply bg-blue-400 ..."></div>
  <div class="mix-blend-multiply bg-pink-400 ..."></div>

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:mix-blend-overlay to only apply the mix-blend-overlay utility on hover.

<div class="mix-blend-multiply hover:mix-blend-overlay">
  <!-- ... -->

For a complete list of all available state modifiers, check out the Hover, Focus, & Other States documentation.

Breakpoints and media queries

You can also use variant modifiers to target media queries like responsive breakpoints, dark mode, prefers-reduced-motion, and more. For example, use md:mix-blend-overlay to apply the mix-blend-overlay utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="mix-blend-multiply md:mix-blend-overlay">
  <!-- ... -->
