Are you talking about the hard fan shaped brush that is supposed to be used on your eyelashes?

I use mine to dust on finishing powder, and to apply highly pigmented brushes so that I get a little bit instead of a blob.

I use it to sweep of fallen eyeshadow or excess powder, and to apply blush. I've had one for ages, and only recently found a use for it!

I saw Carmindy (in What Not to Wear) uses it to apply highlighting powder on the cheeks and above the brows.

I've never figured out how to use one...

I've long since given mine away.

In my makeup class we use it to brush off the excess powder that we put under the eyes to catch falling eyeshadow. That's it's only purpose though

I use a half-moon brush for that and I don't have a fan brush.

I knew I should have searched first.

Thanks everyone. I do like the idea of using it for light applications of blush and bronzer.

I've seen make up artists use it to apply blushes and brush away excess powder.
