The clean sweep fan brushHow to use it: The fan brush is one of those tools that baffles people. It's a funny shape and the notion of applying any form of makeup on such a wide swatch of your face seems strange. Ironically, this brush is perfect if you tend to get heavy handed with blush or bronzer because it delivers just a light sweep of product.
There are a lot of fan brushes out there, but I love the Tarte Fanatic Bamboo Fanned Blush Brush more than any other beauty tool. This brush was designed to sweep away the stray bits of eye shadow/glitter that falls from your lids, but you can also use it when you want a light application of bronzer, blush, or highlighter. For bronzer, hold the brush so the fan is vertical to your face and sweep it, starting from your ears, down your cheekbones. Then, sweep over any area where the sun naturally hits your face. Dip the edge in highlighter and hold it so that the edge is facing you, then sweep the edge over the tops of your cheekbones and down your nose. Use a clean fan brush to apply your favorite face mask -- the brush provides a thin, even application you end up using less product.
