I love a good fan brush! I find that it is one of the most unused brushes in people's makeup bag so it's time to change that.
The fan of the brush is great to highlight your face. Apply your powder highlighter onto the ends of the fan part of the brush and sweep over the tops of your cheek bones. It helps cover a large area and ensures that the application will be soft and well blended. My favorite highlight to use is Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminators, for my girls on a budget NYX illuminating powder is very pretty as well.
I also grab my fan brush when I have unwanted fall out from my eye shadow. It sweeps it off the face perfectly with out rubbing it in and messing up your base makeup.
The fan brush can also be a great contour tool. Apply your bronzer to the side of the brush and sweep it across the hollows of your cheek. It will fit perfectly into the hollows and makes for a very easy way to contour and keep your look very natural and pretty! Great technique to use when you want to subtlety contour your cheekbones. I love using Hoola by Benefit to achieve this look.
