Blending

Rather than trying to blend the colours with a blending stick, why not try blending the colours with white slowly mix the colours on the paper until the magic happens and you get the blend you desire. Happy blending

Burnishing

When putting color on top of color you can use while as a blender it works as good if not better than the colorless. It tends to be a little more harder.

Perfect before permanent

One thing I always do is start a piece in pencil. Once I am happy with it, I move onto the more permanent part of coloring and/or outlining. This way everything is perfect and happy I want it to look before I use something permanent and have no way to erase it.

sharpening

I always sharpen my pencils with an x-acto knife, never a pencil sharpener, and I rarely have any core breakage. It also gives me a much sharper point for fine lines.

Skin Toned Paper

I found this tip on Pinterest, and I'm not calling it my own. If you're drawing human characters, sometimes you can use skin toned paper as a paper instead of white paper. This makes colouring skin a bit easier and the colours really pop.

Highlights

Sometimes it's hard to get a good highlight over the top of what is already there and it's not always possible to get the pop you want with a white pencil, get a cheap $1 white gel pen, it glides on so well over the softcore pencils (I haven't used others yet so can't comment sorry) and really does give you that amazing highlight.
