Basic usage

Setting the background blend mode

Use the bg-blend-{mode} utilities to control how an element’s background image(s) should blend with its background color.

<div class="bg-blend-multiply ...">
  <!-- ... -->

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

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

<div class="bg-blend-lighten hover:bg-blend-darken">
  <!-- ... -->

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:bg-blend-darken to apply the bg-blend-darken utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="bg-blend-lighten md:bg-blend-darken">
  <!-- ... -->
