Just when you think you’ve finally figured out how to use every makeup brush in the book and this guy pops up — the fan brush. It looks just like it sounds, but what’s its purpose in life? Fanning yourself when you overheat from spending hours on your makeup? Not so much. We got to the bottom of this mysterious tool and were surprised by how practical (and essential) its uses really are!
You’ve applied the perfect smoky eye, only to end up with eye shadow all over your under eye area! Don’t smudge it with your fingers; instead use a fluffy fan brush to swipe away any fallout without making a mess.
Because of its unique shape, a large fan brush is the perfect tool for contouring your cheekbones, nose, jawline and forehead!
